King Kallis reigned supreme at Newlands yesterday, scoring his second century of the test and setting up a great platform for SA to draw or maybe even win this test.

Kallis was 109 not out at the end of the innings and set India a target of 340 runs to win.

  • I have always admired the depth of Australian cricket. But it would appear that their talent pit has run dry.

    As for Kallis… well done mate, you are a legend and saved our backsides so many times before. Now all we need is for Steyn and Morkel to fire on all cylinders. Mind you there was a fair amount of spin available so Harris could also play a big role on the final day. Go Proteas!!!

    So you want to rank the provinces, by awarding them points per win and deduct points after a loss. Interesting..

    I have to agree. The log does kinda nail it..

    Its like with the IRB rankings, the biggest move is after the World Cup, so with these rankings you would shift it at the end of the Super Rugby season

  • @Jarson (AddicteD) (Comment 27) : Yeh but the IRB ranking, has a non-linear weighting which basically weights games you played a while ago very much less than recent ones, so you have more or less the same effect as a year-on-year comp.

  • Looking at the last 5 years, the rankings could look like this:
    1. Bulls 91%
    2. Saders 90%
    3. Waratahs 88%
    4. Sharks 87%
    5. Hurricanes 84%
    6. Brumbies 82%
    7. Blues 81.5% etc……

    Thats only an example and not fact :mrgreen:
