    Not by lunch time..

    He would probably have to bat until almost drink in the second session..

    He needs 98, and will probbly get that off 150 balls, which if my math is right, and they share strike, is about 50 overs into the day..

    Today will be the best batting day after all the sun yesterday and the sun expected today.

    If we can bat through, we should try get India in to bat for the last few overs today. With moisture out and about again tomorrow, will make for good bowling conditions.

  • Morning Richard and Bergshark.

    Think Oz might need more of a lead than they have to win this test. Remember how we chased down 414 two years back at the WACA?

    Do hope Oz win this one though, would make it more interesting and of course England wont take our number two spot :cool: :smile:

    @bergshark (Comment 54) : Normally would support England but they right on our tail to take our number two spot. That is if we lose to India and they beat Oz. So for that have to support Oz. But the way our game is going against India we should win this test. Then it could all change today. That is what I love about test cricket. You just never know.

  • @bergshark (Comment 198) : Howzit bergshark,

    Although we still have a day and a bit to get them out, not going to think we have this won yet while Tendulkar and Dhoni are still there India are always in with a chance to draw this.

  • The Lions and Sharks have both upped the
    ante as the tug-of-war for the services of
    iconic Springbok prop Tendai Mtawarira
    drags on into the festive season.
    Golden Lions Rugby Union President Kevin
    de Klerk last week told rugby365.com that
    Mtawarira is on the cash-flush Lions’ wish-
    list , but there is no formal offer yet.
    Now GLRU CEO Manie Reyneke has taken it a
    step further by saying the prop’s move to
    Johannesburg is almost a fete accompli.
    “I’m confident he [Mtawarira] will also be
    running out for us next year,” Reyneke said
    on the GLRU’s official website.
    That statement has gone down like a lead
    balloon with officials in Durban, who are
    adamant that Mtawarira has signed a new
    three-year contract and can’t move to
    Johannesburg.
    “He signed a three-year contract with us a
    few months ago,” Sharks coach John
    Plumtree told the Mercury newspaper.
    “Why would he do that if he was unhappy?
    “I suspect that there are outside influences
    at play here,” Plumtree added.
    Reports suggested that Mtawarira has
    denied that his contract with the Sharks is
    binding.
    However, Plumtree remains firmly of the
    opinion that it is.
    Mtawarira was scheduled to return from
    London at the weekend and a meeting with
    the Sharks early next week is likely to shed
    some light on his status.
    The Sharks are in the midst of a two-week
    break, before they resume pre-season
    training on January 3.
    The Lions’ recruitment drive – which has
    already netted players like Rory Kockott
    (from the Sharks), Sevens Springbok Lionel
    Mapoe (Cheetahs), Bok hooker Bandise Maku
    (Bulls), scrumhalf Michael Bondesio
    (Leopards), prop Pat Cilliers (Sharks) and
    flank Michael Rhodes (Sharks) – could also
    land big fish like Frans Steyn and Butch
    James.
    Their desire to get a core of seasoned
    players to go with the exciting youngsters
    that did so well in the Currie Cup is
    apparently based on the recipe for Super
    Rugby success used by Super 14-winning
    coach Heyneke Meyer.
    Meyer’s well-documented blueprint for
    Super Rugby success involves having 10
    international players; depth in every
    position where the replacement is good
    enough to start a match; experienced
    leaders of whom five have captained a side
    at Super Rugby level; five players with 50
    Currie Cup and Super Rugby caps to their
    credit; along with continuity in team
    selection.
    Although the Lions are still some way off
    this ideal situation, the side of 2011 will be
    much more experienced if they manage to
    secure players of the calibre of James, Steyn
    and Mtawarira.
