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:

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.

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.
