Do you think the Boks will beat Oz? Oz lead by 154 runs with 8 wickets in hand and two days to go.:kowt:

Day 4 starts in a couple of hours. I went to see two sessions yesterday.

If Australia doesn't get rolled over cheaply this morning, I can't see South Africa winning. They were having all sorts of trouble with Warne and McGill yesterday. The Melbourne pitch gives the spinners a big advantage in day 4-5.

The Boks are trying hard. I can't see them beating us. Perth was their big chance, but they weren't good enough.

It would be against the grain for them to win this test. They would have to pick up a lot, or we'd have to fall apart.

50 for Hayden. To think that this mans average nearly dropped to under 50 during the Ashes.:chok:

SA don't have a chance to win this test. That I have no doubt. The antic of the godly one yesterday morning saw to that helped by Kallis obviously.

Hayden and Symmonds are belting the ball all over the park. The Melbourne Cricket Ground is huge. I'm not sure if there is a bigger sized oval in the world. Symmonds has just belted six sixes for his half century. They are going along at nearly 9 an over since lunch.

I picked the wrong day to go....LOL

This has put the game out of reach for S Africa.

And 3/10 in 1 inane Kallis over later, perhaps not. SA now need 345 to win, 10 wickets left. :Potstir:

It is totally appropriate. Only black magic will save SA now. :angel:

He won#t last long. A nice bit of over-appealing should sort him out:Bad:

Jealous, because you don't have a bowler that can hit the pads so often? :Bad:


:devil:

First it was the sledging. Thats what won Australia all those tests. Then its the umpire's decisions. Now its the appealing. What next? LOL

I'll be happy when Oz is no longer top of the tree. Then it will be my turn to whine. :kowt:

England get MBE's! Vaughan and Fletch get OBE's. No amount of sledging can change that. :respekt:

In an Australian double, skipper Ricky Ponting and leg-spinning maestro Shane Warne took top honours in the latest ICC Test batting and bowling rankings.

Unsurprising. Warney for godlike during the Ashes, and Ponting played the best innings of it that must be one of the top 5 at least this year. Rather more consistant than Lara or Tend have been this year too. He's the number 3 everyone wants, but not for a brain or stylish G.W. looks. :Bad:
