Sydney – Australia won the toss and decided to have a bat in the third one-day international against South Africa at Sydney on Friday.

Despite having won the second match of the series Australia has made three un-enforced changes to their team. Ben Hilfenhaus and Ryan Harris are replaced by left-arm seamer Mitchell Johnson and fast bowler Shaun Tait. In one other change off spinner Nathan Hauritz replaces Cameron White.

South Africa enter the match with an unchanged side from that which did duty at Hobart.

The Proteas’ Jacques Kallis enters the match needing 16 runs in order to become the first South African to pass 10 000 runs in one-day international cricket. Kallis is also four wickets shy of reaching the 250 ODI wickets mark.

Teams:

Australia:

Shaun Marsh, David Warner, Ricky Ponting (captain), Michael Hussey, David Hussey, Brad Haddin (wk), James Hopes, Nathan Hauritz, Mitchell Johnson, Nathan Bracken, Shaun Tait

South Africa:

Herschelle Gibbs, Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, Neil McKenzie, JP Duminy, AB de Villiers, Mark Boucher (wk), Albie Morkel, Johan Botha (captain), Dale Steyn, Makhaya Ntini

  • Botha is doing well isn’t he???

    If we do manage to win the series without Biff it would have been a great effort.

    I hope Kallis manages to reach 10K runs today :cool:

  • Did you guys see this??? :mrgreen:

    ‘Ponting said the plan against South Africa would be to try and contain JP Duminy.

    “We want to try and make it difficult for him to score easy runs. What makes it difficult is that he hits the ball so well in any direction. We have to try and make it difficult for him to score runs so that he becomes frustrated and plays irresponsible shots.

    “It’s something we’re working on, but we’ll have to see if it succeeds.’

  • 48.5 Ntini to Hopes, OUT, oh well taken, Botha! Ntini gets another by pitching full down leg stump, getting the ball to swing in with the angle, Hopes chips it off the pads low in the air towards Botha, staying back on the circle, who then runs across and dives to hold a very sharp catch

  • ‘So South Africa do well to dismiss Australia inside 50 overs. Still, a target of 270 is not easy under lights. There has been a good crowd in and they are looking at a competitive total. The spinners, especially Botha, bowled very well and tied down runs as well as taking wickets. Duminy did well under pressure. South Africa will back themselves to chase this.’

  • Cricinfo:

    The winning runs, once again, come off the captain’s bat. A rather comfortable win in the end, largely due to Boucher’s patience and that frenzied cameo from who else but … Albie “I’ll be there for you” Morkel. It got tight in the middle there when Australia hit back with big wickets, but Albie and Boucher changed all that.

    Just a quick recap for anyone who was late to join in. Australia batted first and set a target of 270. Despite a quick start, they were bowled out for 269 in 49.s overs. Botha was in the thick of things, taking 3 for 32 in his 10 overs and two smart catches. In reply for South Africa, Gibbs found some forms in the way he knows best, belting the cover off the ball. Australia were fairly bad with their catching, dropping two in the first over and then allowing the dangerous Albie a chance during the batting Powerplay. Gibbs had some fun, Kallis propped up the innings with a fifty, crossing 10,000 ODI runs today, and then Boucher and Albie played good hands. South Africa lead by 2-1 with two games to go. Those dropped catches made if fairly easy.

    Not much dispute in the fact that Albie is the Man of the Match for his 22-ball 40.

  • “Albie there for you” – :lol: Those guys at cricinfo are funny…

    Yes- credit to Boucher for holding things together…he did what was required of him. (Where’s Hmmm?)

    Good job all round- Botha and Co made some good decisions today.

    The bowling changes went well – and we took the batting PP at the right time. Congratulations to the whole team.

    Let’s go and win this thing on Monday!!!

  • Did anyone see this?


    Rob Houwing’s TV sport column

    Martin van Jaarsveld’s unorthodox, once-in-a-lifetime catch came under some scrutiny on the BVP cricket magazine show on KykNet this week, with studio guest Omar Henry – correctly, I think — suggesting there was little cause for doubt over its legality.

    If you didn’t see it, look out for it in SuperSport promo clips down the line, because otherwise it’s one you won’t be able to tell the proverbial (or even not so proverbial) grandchildren about!

    For the record, early in the disappointingly one-sided MTN Domestic Championship final at Bloemfontein last Friday, the stalwart Titans batsman and Kent kingpin was fielding at solitary slip as Eagles opener Morne van Wyk faced up to left-arm spinner Roelof van der Merwe, who had shared the new ball with Ethy Mbhalati.

    Right-hander Van Wyk stooped to play a sweep and as he did so Van Jaarsveld, in a split second of freak anticipation, started moving over from conventional slip toward leg slip; he stuck out his left hand, quite low, and amazingly took the catch as batsman Van Wyk assumed he’d safely tickled the ball to fine leg.

    The dismissal was rather out of the ordinary and I was pleased acting anchor Jeremy Fredericks (Fanie de Villiers has been in Australia) brought it up with Henry on BVP.

    After all, the laws of cricket state (Law 41.7) that “any significant movement by any fielder after the ball comes into play and before the ball reaches the striker is unfair” and that in the event of it “either umpire shall call and signal dead ball”.

    Pertinently, that particular clause ends with: “Note also the provisions of Law 42.4 (deliberate attempt to distract striker).”

    I say pertinently because the one thing you could not accuse Van Jaarsveld of was “distracting the striker” – his movement came behind the batsman’s back as Van Wyk played his chosen stroke.

    As Henry noted, the fielder only moved well after the bowler had delivered, and as he observed Van Wyk stooping into “sweep” routine: Omar felt it was simply an inspired bit of fielding.

    The only quibble you could have with Van Jaarsveld’s uncanny “premonition”, I think, was that the ball had not quite yet “reached the striker” in terms of Law 41.7 as he moved across to his left.

    Veteran international umpire Rudi Koertzen happened to be the official at the bowler’s end at the time, and had no hesitation in allowing the dismissal.

    When I rang him at his Port Elizabeth home this week, Koertzen confirmed he “never had any doubts” about its legality.

    “It was really a fluke event. If you look at the replay (Van Jaarsveld) was very tight in, behind in his ‘keeper, and so didn’t have to move very far across. He couldn’t even see the ball until it stuck in his hand. He also only moved as Morne started the sweep, so I was quite satisfied it was (in order).”

    Personally, I felt it was one of those marvellous moments of anticipation and near-subconscious skill – yes, even like KP’s much-debated switch-hitting — that make the game great.

    Any letter-of-the-law folk out there who disagree? The floor is yours …

  • Did you know that you can determine the temp outside by counting the chirps made by crickets? :shock:

  • Count the number of chirps in 25 seconds, divide by 3, then add 4.

    So 48 chirps divide by 3 = 16

    16 + 4 = 20 :cool:

    He and McKensie did not look like they were going to make it on their own…we needed that wicket of McKenzie…

    But if you have a batting partner batting at 200% SR…then you can almost forgive Boucher…
