8.50am Good morning, everyone, and welcome to ESPNcricinfo’s live ball-by-ball coverage of the Boxing Day Test at Centurion. Our SA correspondent Firdose Moonda has an early (weather) update: I’m about to start making my way on the Gautrain. Haven’t taken it in a while, so giving myself a lot of time. In Johannesburg – 45km away – it’s quite a bright morning. It rained significantly between 6pm and 9pm-ish and the forecast is for severe thunderstorms this afternoon. Likely means we’ll start on time, play for most of the second session and then it looks like we could see rain for the rest of the day and all of tomorrow.
