the bad news is that there are thunder showers predicted laters in the day. Good that Saffies are batting or I could have betted that they will lose on D/L yet again. :p
Saj Mahmood - plenty of speed.

And thats it.

He has regressed as a bolwer over the last 2-3 years

4...4...4 (NB)
2 wickets for Saj MAhmood!

None of them count

And Free Hit goes for 6!!

21 off the over!

That is Saj MAhmood in a nutshell!
Alastair Cook is captain today, but everyone is having their say out there ...hahahaahah lol

imagine salman butt there hehe
Saj is blowing his chance to return to International cricket big times. :)))
Smith's 50 is up! 25 balls.

The 6's keep coming despite the end of the PP!!!

94-0 off 7.2

Smith might be stumped!
is it that stadium is too small or that batsman hitting really big, just wondering :13:
Bosman is killing them, why Adil giving all those short balls??
England's dreams of Winning the series are disapppearing fast..

Its a test match standard ground - boundaries look normal (not the 45 yd IPL ones)
What's the size of this ground? May be some world record is coming.
any prediction guys, what will SA put up the total? my guess around 260 !
I surely don't want to captain Enggland even in this So Called Fun format.

This scintilating T20 batting!!



Smith on fire: 73*
Collingwood & Strauss smiling on the bench - out ofrelief!
I remember once the same pair of Smith and Bosman hammered Pakistan in the Pro20 two years ago..I think they were chasing around 130 and they cruised home in about 15 ovs..For the first time, Kamran was playing as a specialist batsman in an int'l match..
A total of 11 :six so far and we are only have reached the half way mark.

Heck No.

75 off 36 balls.

That tells you what that innings might have looked like 100 off 37. Absolute Carnage.
This is just unbelievable from these two. 300 is definitely on for SA. England can just throw on everyone in the bowling at the moment.
Who holds the fastest 50 / 100 in international T20
I have loads of painting & decorating to do - but dont want to miss this!
