When i got home from work we were 2/29 and not looking good. Ponters got the ball rolling ok and things just esculated from there. As usual a very impresive display in the field.:hammer:

It was damn impressive.. I liked Glenn McGrath's efforts in the last few overs when he was running at the boundary flat chat.. he did a good job there....

Yeah, blocking it with his foot, good effort indeed!

i missed the aussie innings though, so i dunno what happened there.. saw the scorecard though.. nice work from a couple of them.... pity they won't leave the team the way it is for the next one...

Ok the South Africans are all out for 106 collecting 6 ducks in their innings with Andy Bicheal finishing with 5 wickets for 19 runs. :D

LOL - They killed them, kind of made South Africa could pretty pathetic there.

Wiggo

Well that's it. Australia slaughtered the South Africans. :thumb:
Mark Waugh actually pulled his finger out and went right off after the bowlers and scored well.
ME Waugh not out 55
+AC Gilchrist b Pollock 8
RT Ponting b Klusener 33
DR Martyn not out 6
Extras (lb 1, w 1, nb 3) 5
Total (2 wickets, 18.4 overs) 107

Andy Bichel gets "Man of the Match" and we jump to 2nd on the table with the extra 1 point bonus for achieving the target inside 40 overs. :thumb:

Australia didn't even last 20 overs? how crap is that?

what, we won?!?!? HOW CRAP ARE THEY?!?

*does little dance* go aussie, go aussie, go go go aussie...

actually, i watched a bit of each innings.. was a pretty pathetic effort by SA...

Albinus
01-22-2002, 08:46 PM
Another point is that the Kiwis are pretty cluey at playing Shane Warne, the Proteas have no idea - one dismissal last time they played here reminded me of that Mike Gatting dismissal by Warnie - an absolute classic :cantfocus

Albinus
01-22-2002, 08:47 PM
And I would have hated to pay for a ticket and got this one-sided game - the match was a sellout :(

Olie

it was a rather short match

nice and fast :D

I agree Albinus. I the game I went to at the MCG the other week went for the full 50 overs.

Albinus
01-23-2002, 10:33 AM
One of the best games I went to was a Sheffield Shield match between QLD and TAS at the 'Gabba. This was about 4 years ago, and Matthew Hayden hit one Tasmanian bowler for 18 runs off his first over... IN A TEST MATCH!!!

He scored his 3000th SS run that day, and scored almost 200 at nearly a run a ball - including one big 6 that almost went into the top stand at the 'Gabba :eek:

Albinus I reckon you and I can get all these non-Aussies into cricket yet, what do you think?

Albinus

Well for that we need some sites..... http://www.baggygreen.com.au is the obvious one, very detailed with lots of links for those who are interested :thumb:

OK guys - who do you reckon will win tomorrow? I think it will be a close one, Australia seems to be bouncing back and NZ know how to play Shane Warne - let's hope it's exciting :thumb:

We'll see what happens - I thought the Kiwis would get around 260 to begin with, but their target actually looks defendable - we'll see how it goes - let's hope it's a close one :thumb:

From the website I linked above, read this:

48.2 Lee to Kallis, SIX, lofted drive down the ground - clears the fence and hits the shade house in front of the partially demolished Farley stand - maybe he is trying to help out with the demolition work

Damn it ! I totally forgot about the game ! I would have loved to have seen it, although I was doing some stuff for my church so I would have missed most of it anyway. What happened ? What was the score ? Guess I'll have to go take a look.

Was pretty funny, last game at the G a friend of mine broke his hand in all the excitment ! Go Beven !

Beefy
02-04-2002, 12:59 PM
it's a smart setting.. it can pick all the rubbish posts in the thread, split them away into the Recycle bin, and then leave the rest... so around here it's basically the same as deleting a thread.. :D
