Match starts in about 20 minutes.

Sa have targeted Warner with the mind games.

MJ is back replacing Hilfenhaus. And it seems Horrorwitz will play. What a joke, Hilf gets dropped and the Horrorhack gets a game.

Rumours are Steyn might be rested.
 
There are three reasons for me watching this match

Tait, Warner and Ponting.
 
Tait, Bracken, MJ, Horrorwitz and Hopeless. Yikes.

I am glad it is 2 years til the next WC.

It's Warner time!!! Will he make more than 5 today?
 
Oh come on ! Assie win the toss again ? This is beyond unfair !!
 
I as just about to type tha warner has been worked out and can't hit anythin through the offside...and he murders one throug te civers,


Oh well....we'll see.

Warner has said he prefers to hit the ball on the off side. I think that is all talk but he can play some offside shots.

0/7 after 9 balls

South Africa has it's fair share of nobel prize winners....we're not as stupid as we look. I can assure you warner can hit little to nothing through the offside, no matter how often he says that he can.
 
I don't wish mr warner badly...he's just been massively overhyped. I almost feel sorry for him.
 
what did I say ? All leg side. The south african bowlers might be dumber than I suggested. Just bowl outside off and he's a bunny.
 
ha ha ha ha


ad then he hits one through the offside....ok....saffer theory will cal it a day for now.
 
watching the game right now...seems very mid on.midwicketish type player.....havent seen him play a shot on the off side......however he just hit steyn for six...awesome shot......
 
i just typed my last message and he drove steyn through the off side....blistering start....
 
Good start here, Aussies win ther 7h out f 8 tosses ( ?) .....and going at 6 an over.
 
he does bring excitement to the team...now other teams realize why all of pakistan tunes in to watch players like afridi.....im just watching the beg of this game to catch warner....
 
Makkers up to decent pace (140's) here. A bit quicker than Ahtar in the last two games so I suppose around militirary medium .

Aus 0/36 after 6

Warner 29 off 20. Enough getting your eye in son, start hitting! :afridi
 
Never mind....saffers have the brutal ripping spin of dumminy to come. He'll get 3 hat-tricks at least (depending on batter avalability, else it might only br 2....bu everone has a bad game once in a while.)
 
Seriouslt thoigh...watch makkers pace....well into the 140's. He's far from past it yet.

Has surprised me a bit this tour with his pace and bounce.

I thought he would be 135kph max. Gotta respect Ntini.
 
saffers need to just bowl it full to this warner idiot. He really is 1 dimensional.
 
Look he's not a terrible player. But he's no adam gilchrist. I'd be far kinder to him if not for the insane hype.
 
For those excited by ahktars 142kph yesterday , please watch kallis...even he'll get it there today.

But he has done his job and taken the SA bowlers apart, not bad for an idiot.
 
0/56 after 9. Warner has 45 of those.

Need to keep the RR up, Hauritz has to bowl 10 overs today. So that's 70-80 runs for the Saffers.

oh please....it's not even 6 an over in he pwerplay.
 
saffers taking the bowling powerplay. That's how little we respect the midget.

He has 46 off 32balls, credit where credit is due wouldent hurt.

No. He's not done nearly enough to earn my respect...........yet.
 
Warner is having fun, hitting through the line. Yea.. he is a 50/50 player. On his day he can cause lot of damage at the top.
 
warner rings u a 50 in 41 balls. Hardly murering stuff.

The hype is so insane it's laughable.
 
saffer said:
You'e dreaming...marsh is a much better player.

Marsh has the happy knack of being able to make runs when he is out of form. Now averaging 56 after 11 matches opening, that is seriously good.

0/70 in 12.4 overs, useless Warner bloke has 50 from 41 balls

lol i do agree marsh is a better player...today he looks much better.....however i do think a tad overhyped, taylor is calling him a legend.

he looks much better then marsh at the moment....


Marsh is a much more organized player who is capable of playing shots all around the wicket. Warner on the other hand has the license to go after the bowling. They are just playing the roles. Marsh is very much capable of playing an aggressive innings.

Have to agree here when you look at the 50's scored by the SA batsmen in this comp. Kallis smashed his 50 in 74 balls and Duminy was even quicker belting his 50 in 73 balls.

Of course it's not a bad innings...but it's nothing special or revolutionary like the coms are making out.

My irritation does not lie with the kid....I wish him the best....it's the ridiculous hyp that they're pouring over him.


With that said...he just hit a pretty good sixer.
 
Albie is keeping Warner in check with clever variation. Hope the other monotonous south african bowlers learn from him

Say what you like about the comms, they are the same everywhere but you have called Warner an idiot, said you dont respect him, called him a midget while all the time he is taking the SA bowling apart.

He dosent deserve the disrespect you are heaping on him simply because you dont like the comms, put your scorn on the comms and not warner.
 
This can outright demolish the cricket ball. I am becoming a serious fan of this guy.

AS they say in England ..."Furry muff".

I did make a point of saying it was nothing against the kid,
 
Aussies called for batting pwerplay ? Better hope they don't lose a wicket.
 
Hmm...great start here for aussies....270+ looking on here.

Seems like a good batting surface. 270 will be chasable.

Yeah of course. But tired of chasing .Would be nice to win a toss or two and put the pressure on Australia to chase down the runs.
 
Steyn cleans yo the rubbish and clean bowlers waner. 69 off 60. Good that he scored...will keep him in the side for a predictale few more failures in the next games.
 
what an ugly swipe lol. For a backyard cricketer he did a tremendous job. Let us see how many lives Punter is going to get today.
 
ponting looking dangerous..,..bring on dumminy...hel have aussie all out or 129.
 
Wow what a barrage of utter nonchalance from Ponting... great strokes...

Ahem that the fourth greatest Test batsman ever according to the ICC. :batman:

4th greatest batsman ever hits 3 consecutive boundaries of trundler Morkel.

1/128 after 19.

Good bowling by Styen, let Australia get to about 114/0 then while they are tired get one out.

Don't be touchy man. Last 2 matches he had so many lives.
 
This is a belter. If anything he should have hit two of those deliveries for sixes.
 
Random Aussie said:
Yes I know.

But he is still the 4th greatest batsman ever says ICC :D

Marsh is not in ICC ranking :p. He has played better than punter in this series so far. Go Marsh. Outshine that pretender Punter !
 
Random Aussie said:

He's quite deserving of that rank, he should in fact be ranked higher in my opinion. Now that he's back to his normal form I am sure he will obtain a better spot in the ICC rankings.
 
Come on have a slip.. just pitch it slightly short of length outside the offstump .
 
Cop that!

Three in a row by Punter.
 
2 out of 3 should have been hit for sixes. Horrible horrible deliveries. Half trackers.
