Oz 214/4 with Waugh at the crease. Just another 221 needed to win. Required run rate is 7+.

Bloody good match and series. Congrats to the curry-munchers to retain the Border-Gavaskar trophy (fittingly named after 2 of the greatest cricketers of the modern age, and who have defined the series' between the 2 countries [ perhaps a Tendulkar/Waugh trophy to follow?]. Is the result of this the meeting between the Paki and Indian PMs, co-incidental with the announcement of a series vs the 2 countries? Can Cricket bring about world peace? The possibilities are endless (even if the game isn't to some of us yanks;)

Definitely cricket will bring about world peace.
Even the Yanks are now discovering the hidden virtues of cricket.

India needs 30 runs in 21 balls to win the first ODI.

Hello again. Sorry for my enforced absence, but glad to see that you've kept the thread going.

So, Oz 203/1, still 16 overs remaining, and Gilly going wild in the crease. Couldn't be much worse for Zim I'm afraid. Whoever scheduled them in a triangular series with greats like Australia and India must have had a vast vicious streak (Sorry Heath:D) in them.

Shame that Waugh could end his era with a bang. Still, he managed to salvage a draw, and making a careful 80 is good. So, can Poning, fresh from his double act against India, continue the excellent standards that Waugh set. :) :confused: :mad:

Well, I admit I have got a wee bit behind what with my absence and whatever, so I'll come back with a big one.

Back in 1964 a bunch of Pakis from the railway (:confused: ) engaged fellow Paki team Dera Ismail Khan in a cringingly one sided display that would or should have left the latter side with a strong desire for mass suicide. The railway men pounded a brutal score of over 900, before generously declaring, and just for luck bowlers Afaq Khan, and then Ahad Khan inspired 2 terminal collapses that saw 20 wickets falling for a hard fought 59 runs.

The winning margin was a relatively (to a theoretical innings and 3000 run win) tight innings and 851 runs, in just under 3 days. Maybe if it had been a timeless match, or even a 4 dayer, the Railway men would have batted on in the hope of getting a winning margin of an innings and 1000+ runs, but alas not possible. :(

:)

"Pakistan Railways" - sounds like trackworkers maybe.
11 noughts over two innings, a record? (undoubtedly not..; )

The "bully" tag is always given to the best team. They all sledge. But when guys in the best team in the world sledge, it bites deeper because they are telling the truth. lol

India is as good a batting side as Australia. I have never seen such talent in two sides in the batting department.

BTW, a bit of sad new: David Hookes former Australian Test player and current Victoiran state coach was bashed over the weekend and is a coma.

Hooks was like a nova in the firmament of Aussie cricket. Brilliant, flambouyant, electric. Wasn't quite the same after catching one in the gob from Andy Roberts, but a real good guy to watch in Test or one-day games. He'll be missed for sure, as he was a very respected coach/trainer for the young-uns.:(

WI fighting back, but I don't hold much chance; SA should win this:)

My condolences to all Ozzie mates here. Hookes was a delight to watch in full flow.
