I just read the Harmys calf hasn't deteriorated and he should be fit for the 5th test. I couldn't help thinking 'pity'. :mad:

7 wickets in 4 matches and an average of about 75. I can't help thinking we're better off without him for the 5th test. :mad:

Being so infernally tall, it takes quite a while for all that blood to reach his brain. He should be okay for the 5th test and bowl the line and length that he wanted to in the 1st test.:D

And the Lord said 'Let rain stop play' and rain stopped play and the Lord was pleased with what he saw. :)

Brad Haddin recently added a new twist to it by taking strike behind the stumps to Shoaib Akhtar. Personally, I am not a fan of this because it perverts the idea of batting, but for spectators, it is a great novelty.

:D :D :D

SA 247/9. Flinty and Jones have a party.

Thank goodness that we have the godly powers ofWG Grace on our side. Or is it Gary Sobers!?! Well, whichever, we've got it. :D

We need another inspired bowling performance to win this one. Let's hope that Kallis donates his wicket to medical science early on tomorrow. :)

SA 296/6 dec. Strangely the only scores over 9 are 109 and 136no. :eek:

We need 185 in 44 overs to win, although being 0/9 at close would win us the series. :confused: :D :eek:

Or will we amass 45/4 in 32 overs and go on to draw? :D

Who cares we win 2-1. Villiers man of the match. Stroussy man of the series despite Kallis with 3 tons (2 big, 1 unbeaten) and 2 50's. And 2 golden ducks. :D

Congrats Tommy.

Oh well, better luck to the Boers next time. And hopefully, less affirmatice action meddling which didn't do us any favours either.

England deserved the win though. The press will no doubt be going into orgasmic ecstacy but...... beating a 2nd string side like SA is one thing. Australia is another.

11 men per side. Only 1 ball in service at a time though several may be used in a match. No penalties. No offsides. Runs are usually scored by running beween the wickets.

If you're interested see this, and then you will have to suffer an initiation ceremony. :D
