Re: Cricket


Yeah, SA don't seem to have tried to win the game today, more just trying to stop England scoring quickly. Almost like England were the team in a winning position.

End result has been a bit like watching paint dry. I come in for a look occasionally, but its not worth sitting and watching it all.

Re: Cricket


This is true, I have been on the road most of the day and listening to the ball by ball has been purgatory, so I eventually switched to dumb and dumber on the local music channel instead. Only worse day was when 'Grumpy' Atherton and Jack Russel kept us at bay to save the test a couple of years ago.

Re: Cricket


 emoticon Loved Ntini knocking Harmison for four fours in his first over. We got out of it by the skin of our teeth. It would have been hard to come back from two down. Awesome game of cricket all in all.

Re: Cricket


No arguement about the bad light call, but what I don't understand about it is why switch the floodlights on if they aren't allowed to influence the state of play. Would be more sense to leave them off, then the situation becomes much clearer.

I should think both teams will take positives from this. SA managed to save the game, and England came back from way down after day 2 to almost force a win.

Re: Cricket


Commentators had a long winded explanation, something about floodlights are only allowed to aid the natural light and that once they take over as the light source then bad light can still be called, all to do with the red ball as opposed to the white one used in the day nighters.

Re: Cricket


Congratulations Smous. You scraped a draw and that certainly seems to have kick started your season!
Englands first loss for some time.

Re: Cricket


Yep, well done SA.

Could you lend us Kallis for the next week as a batting coach?
