Toss won by South Africa - who chose to bat first
 
I need to follow this thread like a hawk today, it's going to be another top match, can the rules of probability catch up with the aussies...
 
Good chance here for SAF if they bat well. If they had lost the toss and we're bowling first, I couldn't see them winning this. As it stands, I need to pile on the runs and put that Aus top order under some serious pressure, because they way Hayden and Ponting have been batting, thats the only way you can dismiss them early.
 
I've got meetings all day today so won't get to see much of it, bugger!
 
Daar and Bucknor umpires
Pitch got discussed and winning the toss seems to be important as pitch likely to get worse later on
Smith to face Bracken
 
Very lucky for deVilliers, big appeal from McGrath, looked to be plumb and Hawkeye showed it hitting the stumps but not given.
 
Edge, just falls short of Ponting at 2nd slip. SA 0-7 after 2.
 
Stupid shot from Smith. Off stump - gone !
 
WICKET!! Bracken strikes, Smiffy gone, SA 1-7, bowled after coming down the wicket.
 
If we can get rid of Kallizzzz :28: early it will be a bonus!
 
Pontings wish accpeted, Kallis is in early.

Smiths talk is over
 
Nearly another wicket for Bracks
 
any live VIDEO links boys??

Smith been a waste o time this tournament! crap batter

McGrath strikes!! Kallizzzz :28: gone, clean bowled. SA 2-12 after 5
 
Now if we can just get rid of Gibbs I can go into my meeting feeling relatively comfortable! But both batsmen at the crease now (AB and the Zookeeper) are very dangerous.
 
not chokin but they trying to be TOO aggressive
play ur natural game chill and build a total.. y go all out and want a slogfest

NO TEAM give the OZZIES a PROPER game..slack v slack on SA part..

SA are humiliating the NAME of cricket here..SA need a TEAM/captain/player change..
Kallis, Ntini, Pollock ALL need to retire and RETIRE dam quick!!!
 
AB got a life when lbw shout not given in mcgrath's first over, benefit of doubt going to the batsman, it was a marginal decision.
 
Watson you muppet! Nearly a runout!

STILL ntini, pollock, kallis and maybe 1 or 2 more.. are OVER aged they NEED to GO!
 
one good partnership can change the whole picture(like yesterdays match).. this match is far from over..
 
--- AU v's SL --- FINAL!!!


SL to wipe out the top order of AU.. u just wait n see - i am getting a feeling :)
 
BRING in the SAFFFER wastersssssssss

SAFFIES getting STUFFFFFFFFFFED
 
Wicket!! Tait induces a nick and AB is gone. OZ 3-26, that was a massive wicket.
 
BOOOOOOOOOOOOO :31: YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

send the ANIMALS back to the ZOOOOO ! :16:

Saffer come sort ur wild beasts out!! :14:
 
damn, is it going to be like 1996 AUS vs SL ... u know the result ;)
 
Ridiculous cricket this appalling

Talk about showing a bit of character!

Its almost like Australia are bullies and the rest of the teams are too afraid to say anything!!!
 
Can't say i feel sorry for the SA becasue of all the hype and lead up to the wc by them and terming this team a special one
 
who cares about the final result

its all about the BEST teams being in the final.. and i think SL are the BEST team to beat AUS

SA are good but as u can see pressure busts em right open.. all HYPED up and overrated
 
hahahahahhahaha what a shame what a shame.. it was a wide ball and price tried to hit.. omg what a joke is going on ... BNG could've performed better bating display then SA

SA is 4 down
 
Another wicket! McGrath strikes, 4-27, SA collapsing. Prince gone trying to hit a wide delivery and nicks it. He didn't have to hit at that, that was a woeful shot.
 
And Boucher goes first ball, Pigeon on a hatrick!

5-27. SA crumbling under the pressure
 
There is nothing at all in the pitch .. what a shame.. SA is choking again
 
oh dear 27 for 5.

Nice to see Ali Bacher looking glum faced in the crowd.
