After a fantastic win by the Proteas yesterday, we have a double header today, starting off with a great game where the unbeaten Australians take on their neighbours New Zealand. The second game is a bit of a non-event with Bangladesh taking on Ireland.

Join us here for some chatter and updates.

    Flip I thought this was going to be a good game. 🙁 My margins are much closer than the result of a 9 wicket win for Aus that it is going to be. 🙁

    Those lorryloads of contraband nibbles missed out on being chomped on to the backdrop of a fairly routine match, but one illuminated by two innings of extreme class and an outstanding international debut by much-travelled legspinner Imran Tahir, who gave every impression of being the missing piece in South Africa’s team jigsaw.

    This is not to say that, as in previous World Cups, when the pressure cranks into hyperdrive, South Africa will not find a way of dousing that jigsaw in coffee, or letting the Australians tear it up and throw it into a bin, or reading the instructions wrong and feeding it to a dog. But this was an imposing opening by the 1999 and 2003 Sporting-Blooper-Of-The-Year award winners.

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • There are, however, extremely sound reasons why such seemingly completely inoffensive objects were rightly prohibited from entry into the stadium:

    Water: Water has been scientifically proven to be extremely dangerous. The following people all drank water: Julius Caesar, Florence Nightingale, J Edgar Hoover, Elvis Presley, Jane Austen and Douglas Jardine. What are the only two things they all have in common? They all drank water. And they are all dead. Draw your own conclusions. Furthermore, there were potentially 40,000 people in attendance today. If they had each taken a 500ml bottle of water into the stadium, they would collectively have had enough water to fill a 20 cubic metre tank – enough in which to keep a small shark alive but angry for the duration of a 50-over cricket match.

    Classic! :mrgreen:

  • Imran Tahir was superb on his international debut. However, as a proud Englishman, I find it more than a little disappointing that South Africa should resort to recruiting so many players from outside their own country.

  • @Jarson (AddicteD) (Comment 92) :

    SuperSport has axed rugby commentator and Sport24 editor Andrew “Tank” Lanning for sending out a tweet during a closed workshop regarding the utilisation of players during a World Cup year.

    “The tweet was: ‘SA Rugby to ‘manage’ the Springboks during the Tri-Nations. I think it’s a good thing,'” Lanning told News24 on Friday.

    Expert opinion suggests that the focus for SA rugby should be on the Rugby World Cup rather than the Tri-Nations. However, SA Rugby is contractually bound to field the strongest team for the Tri-Nations and any hint of resting top players would be viewed as a breach of contract.

    “SA Rugby asked me to delete the tweet and told SuperSport about it. SuperSport thought I had breached trust and cancelled my meeting with them in Johannesburg without reason.

    “I called them childish,” Lanning said.
