Aus (222) v SA (223) 4th ODI

Australia, who must take the game to stay alive in the series, won the toss and Ricky Ponting elected to bat in the fourth ODI in Adelaide. South Africa lead the five-match contest 2-1 following their victories in Melbourne and Sydney and have shown they can never be ruled out no matter how big the chase.

Peter English writes for Cricinfo that the home team has been strong in the top order, but has struggled to maintain the momentum through the middle. “Hopefully we can start the innings well, like we have through the series, but it’s about putting the whole 50 overs together,” Ponting said.

South Africa will field a new wicketkeeper in AB de Villiers after Mark Boucher sustained a broken toe from a Shaun Tait yorker. The job is familiar to de Villiers – he has done it six times in ODIs – and his importance to the team continues to rise. Morne Morkel, the fast bowler, is in the XI while Jacques Kallis has been passed fit after picking up a side strain in Sydney.

Australia resisted the move to bring Ryan Harris straight in after he replaced Nathan Bracken, who strained a calf at the SCG, and preferred Ben Hilfenhaus. Nathan Hauritz drops out to be 12th man while Cameron White, who is expected to bowl, will return to No. 6. The temperature at the toss was 35C, the sun was out and the pitch should suit the batsmen.

Australia 1 Shaun Marsh, 2 David Warner, 3 Ricky Ponting (capt), 4 Michael Hussey, 5 David Hussey, 6 Cameron White, 7 Brad Haddin (wk), 8 James Hopes, 9 Mitchell Johnson, 10 Ben Hilfenhaus, 11 Shaun Tait.

South Africa 1 Herschelle Gibbs, 2 Hashim Amla, 3 Jacques Kallis, 4 AB de Villiers (wk), 5 JP Duminy, 6 Neil McKenzie, 7 Albie Morkel, 8 Morne Morkel, 9 Johan Botha (capt), 10 Dale Steyn, 11 Makhaya Ntini.

  • This should stem the tide a little.

    19.2 Botha to MEK Hussey, OUT, lbw! Botha tosses it up on the stumps, purchases some drift, Hussey gets across to paddle it around the corner, but there’s no bat on that and after a deploring appeal the umpire raises the finger of fate

  • @wpw (Comment 26) :

    If Vaughn hits 4 runs of 4 balls then he is batting faster than Boucher. :wink:

    Will v Jaarsveld bat above or below Boucher’s slot? If it is below then that already helps as there will be no batting speedbump in the SA order.

    Adelaide. – The Proteas have been priced out of a meeting with American cyclist Lance Armstrong.

    The South African cricket side wanted a meeting of 10-15 minutes with the seven-times winner of the Tour de France, but it never materialised due to an asking price of $90,000 (approximately R1 000 000).

    “That is Armstrong’s appearance fee to spend an hour with supporters or a team. I don’t think Gerald Majola (chief executive of South African cricket) would have been prepared to pay that,” said South African coach Mickey Arthur.

    The South Africans approached Armstrong’s management after he raced in the Tour Down Under in his return to professional cycling.

    “I don’t think they realised we only wanted 10-15 minutes with him,” said Arthur.

    “When we saw what it would cost to meet him, the plan immediately went out the window.”

    The Tour Down Under finished a stone’s throw from the Proteas’ hotel at the Torrens River.

    It is usually a quiet city, but it was buzzing Sunday as several roads were closed. The Proteas had to walk from their hotel to the stadium for their session in the nets.

    The South Africans hope to spoil Australia’s national day Monday by wrapping up the one-day series.

    “Our motto for this game is to turn a good tour into a fantastic one by also winning the one-day series,” said Arthur.

    “Our whole focus is on this game. We know the Aussies will be highly motivated to beat us and square the series, but we’re ready for them and want to ensure the series does not go down to the wire in Perth.”

  • Controversial all-rounder Andrew Symonds tendered a public apology for his bizarre “lump of s**t” jibe at New Zealand’s Brendon McCullum even as Cricket Australia said it will launch an investigation into the incident on Tuesday.

    Symonds made the comments live on air on radio station network ‘Triple M’ on Friday while taking a swipe at NSW for signing McCullum at the expense of a local player for the KFC Big Bash Twenty20 final against Victoria.

    “They’re trying to use him (McCullum) as the out because he’s a Kiwi. Yep, we love to hate them, but he’s the lump of s***; sorry, lump of cow dirt, that people are thinking of,” he had told the show hosts.

    Flip!!!!!!! Aussies really CAN’T spell. beers named XXXX and now a Radio station named MMM???????????

  • @klempie (Comment 78) :

    Andrew Symonds has slammed New South Wales for hiring big-swinging Kiwi Brendon McCullum for Saturday’s interstate Twenty20 final, describing the recruitment of the New Zealander as “un-Australian”.
    The wicketkeeper has been recruited by the Blues with an eye to the lucrative Twenty20 Champions League in India in October, where he will be able to play for them should his Indian Premier League team, the Kolkata Knight Riders, fail to qualify.

  • @klempie (Comment 83) :
    What pissed Symonds off was that McCallum was going to play his first game in the series in the final, ie he was only brought in ondce the team had reached the final – at the expense of someone that had actually got the team to that final. I have sympathy for those sentiments.

  • Well that will be great if we are no1 in both Test and ODI…

    We still have to win the test series in SA though…and if we win the ODI series in SA too then that will open somewhat of a gap…

    Kirsten most def did it…when he was 3 short of the then ODI world record highest score…and just needed to hit a four from the last ball in the 1999 WC I think…and that was not his only time…

    Kepler too had a 90 n.o from 150 balls or so and was knocked for it…so I doubt that that is the case…

  • Biased Aussie commentator going on about how they “threw away” their wickets.

    When they get us out it’s always ” planning by Punter and the bowlers”.

    He must just give credit to Botha and the bowlers.

  • From cricinfo.com

    Well then, South Africa are enjoying the moment. They have taken an unassailable 3-1 lead with one game to go. AB and Amla whoop it up and grab stumps for souvenirs. Hats off to South Africa. The Adelaide Oval cheers them on.

    How about a quick recap? Ponting won the toss on a good batting deck and made first use. South Africa’s bowlers performed admirably in the stifling heat and struck back around Ponting’s fifty. The captain, Botha, was frugal with the ball and snapped up Hussey and Haddin. Australia were in desperate need of a rear-guard action, but it never came. Ntini and Steyn chipped away and Australia were bowled out in 48 overs.

    After chasing down 270 in Sydney last week, 223 didn’t prove that hard for South Africa, particularly with a number of the batsmen in form. Gibbs had a bit of fun what with the fielding restrictions and all, and after he fell Kallis went. Amla and AB were unclustered and both played steady innings, later accelerating when victory was in sight.

    “I’ve been really happy with my bowing in the last few games,” says Botha. “I am very proud of the guys. We’ve been brilliant. We would like to finish the tour with another win.”

    AB is the Man of the Match for his unbeaten 82 from 85 balls. He also kept wicket, remember. “Things just fell together,” he says. “Its been an unbelievable few months. Its all come true for us. A Test win and an ODI win. Its been hard work though.”

  • You take the Sambuca and spread it around the inner rim of the glass.

    You then light the film on the inner rim.

    As it is burning you put your hand over the glass making sure it fits perfectly onto the palm of your hand.

    Turn it upside down QUICKLY so that the sambuca is between your hand and the flame.

    As the flame burns in the sealed glass it eventually dies as the oxygen is burnt up.

    Now because the oxygen is depleted the glass would have drawn a vacuum and sucked onto your hand.

    You can now shake the glass rather vigourously without holding it the vacuum should be sufficient to secure it to your hand.

    The CO2 created from the flame will then mix with the Sambuca and make it go very opaque/milky.

    Then you drink it.

    Only to see my old man dash my hopes and write to the Army asking them to let me go in Feb ’87. :evil: so as not to waste 6 months of my life.

    Only for the July ’87 intake to be the first intake to only do 18 months NS and in effect finish the army the same time as me.

    So in hindsight i could done the post matric AND finished army the same time. :evil:

    I know that was my issue, I was under 16 at the start of Matric but had to run U/17 as SA’s only had U/17 for Steeplechase and Walking.

    In ’87 i would have been u/17 and that little bit more competitive with my main opposition “bennie hearn” still being around but u/19 by then.

    But no use crying over spilt milk. “As is verbrande hout” :cry:

  • Some news on Symonds…

    Symonds to face hearing over McCullum comment
    Cricinfo staff
    January 27, 2009

    Andrew Symonds will learn of his fate at a code of behaviour hearing in Melbourne on Thursday after being reported by Cricket Australia for his comments about the New Zealand player Brendon McCullum. Symonds could face a fine or suspension over a radio interview in which he called the New Zealand player Brendon McCullum “a lump of s…”.
    “Given the importance of the tribunal hearing, it would be inappropriate to comment on the issue now a report has been made,” Michael Brown, the acting chief executive of Cricket Australia, said on Tuesday. “Once the outcome of this hearing is finalised, Cricket Australia will be in a better position to assess issues relating to Andrew Symonds.”
    The controversial radio interview is the latest in a long line of off-field dramas involving Symonds. In the past six months alone he was axed from the national squad in Darwin for going on a fishing trip, undertook a rehabilitation programme, and then became involved in a bar-room incident after his Test comeback in Brisbane.
    Symonds is currently preparing for his Sheffield Shield comeback on Friday after having knee surgery earlier this month. His Queensland coach Trevor Barsby said the state squad would offer him whatever support was required but that ultimately it was up to Symonds to understand the consequences of his behaviour.
    “He is a big boy so he must realise that he has to take control of his own destiny,” Barsby said in the Courier-Mail. “He has the full support of current and former players – and a direct line to some counsellors – but at the end of the day the buck stops with him.
    “We can help him as much as possible but we can’t babysit him. Roy needs to choose to do something about things and take ownership. He is a grown man and he’s got to be aware of the consequences of his actions.”
    Symonds apologised for the McCullum comments and said he was trying to go along with the light-hearted nature of Roy and HG’s radio show. He won the support of his former Queensland captain Jimmy Maher, who said the media reaction to the radio interview was over the top.
    “I just think we are getting a bit precious aren’t we? You’d swear he’d murdered someone the way some people are carrying on,” Maher told the Australian. “It’s not that big a deal. He came out and apologised. anyway, it was a light-hearted radio gig. Roy and HG say those sort of things all the time, that’s the flavour of the show, it’s a bit of carry-on and he hasn’t meant anything by it.”

  • The Beeld (Christo Buchner) goes further to say that he commented on Hayden’s cooking and Hayden’s wife. When asked what he thought of Hayden’s cooking he answered “When I eat it, I just look at his wife and that helps to stomach the food” and the Beeld goes on to day the exact words on McCullum was “He is a piece of sh.., sorry, a pile of dun” (‘n bol keoimis)

  • @Hmmm (Comment 464) :

    yes it is true.

    here is a transcrips followed by a timeline of Symmonds kak.

    below is a transcript of Andrew Symonds’ controversial radio interview with Roy and HG.

    Roy: We’re all ears Andrew.

    Symonds: I’ve got two ears, you blokes have got four. Have you got anything?

    HG: Can I just go out on a limb here and say that this about McCullum being a
    New Zealander in my view? I just can’t stand it. I just can’t … haven’t we got
    enough people in Australia? The shaky isles, the land of the long white cloud. I’ve
    never seen eye to eye with, and I don’t see why our, and I’m going to use a harsh
    word here Andrew Symonds. I don’t see why our cricket, our one day of the year,
    on this very weekend, when we support everything that’s great about Australia,
    that it’s polluted by having a New Zealander involved.

    Symonds: I think that’s what, mate. I think that’s exactly what people want us
    to do. I think that’s what the hierarchy want us to do, to blame it on New Zealand.

    Roy: Well I would blame McCullum in a sense that he could have said no
    because I’m not Australian and we would have thought the world of him.

    Symonds: Can I just finish there? Excuse me, I don’t want to butt in. But they
    try to use him as the out, coz he’s a Kiwi yep? We love to hate them.
    But he is the subject. He is the lump of sh*t, sorry, the lump of cow dirt that um,
    that people are thinking of.
    Now, we get away from that and the actual topic is about playing cricket and
    getting yourself into a final.
    Now, as I said to you earlier, if you get yourselves to that position, you haven’t
    brought anyone in, personally, I don’t know what you two think, but you don’t
    change a winning team.

    HG: You don’t. You’re absolutely right.

    Symonds: Correct. I’ve got nothing … it doesn’t matter about McCullum. It
    doesn’t matter who… Mate, he could have been Irish. He still would have got it. It’s
    not his fault. He’s doing his job and he’ll try to earn his wage. But what’s happened
    here is I believe an injustice has…
    OK, I said Daniel Smith is his opposite number and he might miss out. But
    mate, they said Daniel Smith, this morning, would play but mate, at the end of the
    day, boys, some one’s going to miss out.

    HG: That’s right.

    Roy: Of course. Australia is going to miss out.

    Symonds: The follow up boys, on this interview, it’d be good to interview that
    person that missed out.

    HG: What a lovely idea.

    Symonds: What would be interesting to see is how (attentative), or how free
    speaking that person is on what they think on it.
    Because you’re not, you’re not going to get a diplomatic … well you’re going to get
    the diplomatic answer.

    Roy: Of course you’re going to get the diplomatic answer. He’s going to say
    something like: hopefully I’ll be good enough to get picked next year.

    Symonds: Exactly. And you boys are the men to ask these questions.

    HG: Thanks very much Andrew. Now two questions that I’ve always wanted to
    ask you, and you can speak freely on these. Matthew Hayden’s cooking. Now it
    gets a lot of raps but do you think it deserves the big raps?

    Symonds: Um … I’ll tell you from actual personal experience. His cooking … I’ve
    never been to his place and had a bad, I’ve never been to his place and had a good
    place and had a good feed. I’ve always had an exceptional feed.
    So um, mind you I have had the odd side glance at his wife which helps the meal
    go down, you know, amply.
    But he’s never served me a bad meal is my answer to your question.

    HG: Very good. Now the other one is..

    Symonds: What he’s also good at and doesn’t like doing … he’s got the big, flash
    coffee machine.
    So we have a barbie and a few beers, relaxing. And just before you’re about to
    leave or go to bed and what have you, he likes to come out with the: Does anyone
    like a beer or a cup of tea or like a coffee?
    So you get him out of his hammock, or big chair, and he hates it. Loves it but
    hates it.

    Roy: He’s got one of those stupid big bloody espresso machines has he? It’s not
    just a spoonful of instant and a bit of hot water?

    Symonds: Let me tell you mate, Matthew Hayden has got no poor gear. He’s got
    the good stuff.

    HG: Very good. Now the cricket ads this year, finally, the cricket ads. Look, we’re
    disturbed that Ricky Ponting’s Valvoline ad that has the ghost of John Laws
    appearing in it may win cricket ad of the year. I know you’ve done some terrific
    ones but I just worry..

    Symonds: (inaudible)

    HG: I love the one where you shoulder charge the bloke in the frock running
    down the street. I love the backyard cricket ones. But I’m just worried about the
    Valvoline ad, on the Allan Border night, may be awarded ad of the year.
    Does that worry you too?

    Symonds: Well there’s a category. There’s a category that possibly you blokes
    could appear in.
    Cricket ads and ads to do with athletes I think the less they speak the better they
    are.

    HG: Very good.

    Roy: Very good.

    HG: It’s a very telling comment Andrew. And on that note, can we thank you for
    being part of the Life today and I wish you all the best for the Australia Day
    weekend in 2009. Thanks very much Andrew Symonds.

    Symonds: Thank you very much. Sorry to hold you up. Thanks boys.

    Perth – Meet the Ponting Pushovers. That is what Ricky Ponting’s Australian cricket side were tagged on Tuesday by the West Australian newspaper after South Africa ruined Australia’s national day on Monday by putting them to the sword in Adelaide.

    Not only did the Proteas win the fourth one-day international convincingly by eight wickets, they also ensured victory in the series of five games.

    “Australia Day disaster as tourists coast to victory,” was the headline in the report where the team was named Ponting’s Pushovers.

    One of the newcomers in the squad, Michael Hussey, said it was very disappointing.

    “We saw it this morning and it will motivate us for the last game at the Waca on Friday,” he said.

    “Australian cricket is not used to being treated like that and such cutting remarks really do not go down well.”

    Hussey was also not impressed by statements from the South African camp that they enjoyed thrashing the Aussies on their national day.

    “You reap what you sow and we will have the opportunity of gaining revenge in South Africa for what they have said here,” said Hussey.

    “They are in command, but we will have a chance of getting our own back.”

    Hussey admitted it was disappointing to be beaten so convincingly on Australia’s national day.

    “We have to win back the respect of Australian supporters,” he said.

    “It’s a matter of pride to keep our position as the top-ranked team in world cricket and that is why we will fight at the Waca to ensure South Africa don’t take it away.”

    Hussey admitted the Aussie batsmen would be relieved at not having to face up to Dale Steyn and Makhaya Ntini.

    “They, and in particular Steyn, were outstanding in the series and it will be nice to know we don’t have to face them,” he said.

    The Adelaide Advertiser was also highly critical of the Australian side and described Monday’s hiding as “Our Worst”.
