The Proteas face off agaisnt the Black Caps today in the third quarter final of the 2011 Cricket World Cup. All the SA stars are fit again, with AB de Villiers, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel all set to join the starting line up again. New Zealand stars Kyle Mills and Daniel Vettori should both be fit again and ready to take us on.

Yesterday saw the end of an era as the Australian team was dumped out of the tournament for the first time since the 1999 World Cup, when India beat them by 5 wickets.

Join us for live updates throughout the day.

  • Dropped and then a SIX. πŸ™‚

    42.2
    Oram to du Plessis, SIX

    42.1
    Oram to du Plessis, no run, dropped. Oram’s taken a couple of monster catches today, but can’t summon his inner Munaf Patel this time. Full toss on the middle and leg line, Faf clubs it right back and Oram can’t hold on.

  • @klempie (Comment 239) : Just for you.

    Stellar Captaincy indeed.

    Biff is worst World Cup skipper
    By David Isaacson

    Graeme Smith was the worst-performing captain at the 2011 World Cup – at least in terms of skippers batting in the top order.

    A comparison of world cricket’s Big Eight – the teams which qualified for the quarter-finals – shows that Biff was the only captain, who bats in the top three, to score fewer than 200 runs in total and post an average of below 30 (his career ODI average is 39.25).
    He was also the only one who failed to score a century, his best effort being 45.
    Smith amassed 183 runs at a below-par average of 26.14 from seven matches.
    Of the other skippers who bat in the top order, Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara made 363 at an average of 121, England’s Andrew Strauss 334 runs at 47.71 and Australia’s Ricky Ponting 206 at 34.33.
    India’s MS Dhoni (125 runs), Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi (65 runs + 21 wickets), West Indies’ Darren Sammy (54 runs + 8 wickets) and New Zealand’s injury-hit Daniel Vettori (50 runs + 2 wickets) bat in the middle and lower orders.

  • @KSA Shark Β© (Comment 355) :

    It has to be added that Ricky Ponting scored half of his runs in the last match..
