Saffa's having a bit of a stinker in Paarl.  Even with Kleinveldt hitting 3 sixes at the end, all out for 208.  Kiwi's have a chance...


Edit:  OK, scrap that crazy idea.  Guptill's season goes from bad to worse with a diamond duck, and they are now 4/2.  Think I put the mockers on them with my carefree optimism

    So.... Sheep, nice win. Franklin? Richard Hadlee the second.

    What was the point of Chris Martin or Jeetan Patel? Top debut

    Maybe that he doesn't have any...
    Mitch McLeneghan, Boult, Bracewell, Southee, Vettori, Ryder and Taylor back and Williamson a bit lower down. And maybe get Kitchen in? It's not a bad team. That's some very good fast bowlers, and thank flip for no overcoaching. Now to get rid of Hesson and Buchanan.

    Anyway, here's some trivia (asked this among 8 questions, and got only these two)
    1 Name a batsman who forgot his bat when going out to bat in a test (easy one)

    2 name the batsman who got lost in the toilets on his way out to bat in a test (less easy)
    the others were conundrums

    Googling trivia is phurt....

    I had an absolute ball, had a great group of peeps with spirit next to me, an absolute hoot, singing, ragging, talking trash. Was HOT - 36 degrees at one stage - but I was organised - had a whole bag full of ice, kept throwing it down the back of my dress, and handed out to the peeps around me - those guys were TRASHED, they must've felt like poo the next day :lol

    I was rather disappointed that there was suddenly zero cell signal at the stadium for the rest of the day after about 11-ish, was looking forward to tweeting. Oh, and when I snapped that pic of Dale Steyn I was so close to getting an autograph, and he kept kinda looking my way, but there were a million little kids screaming in front of me. And I would've felt like a poes to shout: "Dale, Dale, please sign my bat!" Although I think he might've if I had. I was wearing a very short dress ;)

    I have a feeling that number two is Robin Smith?  No idea why I think that really, just a hunch...
    For the first one, I would love it to be Chris Martin?  But might also be Neil Mackenzie?  (Of course, if it's someone from way back, I have no idea!)

    No clue for the first one..
    Though Marlon Samuels forgot his bat when it left his hand and made straight for Shane Warne.

    The 2nd one.. well putting it into google makes it easy enough :cheesy

    Clue about the first. Great English cricketer (proper great) fast bowler, pr*ck in the media... He did it in the Ashes.

    On the right track (and indeed on Sky), he doesn't commentate for the tests now and sticks to the counties... Not Bumble or Botham. He's a fast bowler  and is somewhere here

    Most wickets without a 10fer in a match too.

    Well unless I am missing something there is only one English still alive proper fast bowler on that list.
    And he also commentates on country games..

    Still never heard of him dropping his bat

    Yes, it is him. A famous incident in the 81 Ashes, when the opposition attack was led by DK Lillee and Jeff Thompson, though not the Tommo of the mid 70s. Willis went out to bat and was taking guard when he realised he'd forgotten something.

    His record? A very well known one, highest wicket taker in test cricket without a 10fer.

    India are bowling well but this is good innings building by England. We have KP still there and some explosive players down the order so if they can fire then this could turn into a good score. Then again it could still go horribly wrong.

    Awful decision to dismiss Cook. Morgan and Patel did not help. But Root what an innings so far.. UNBELIEVABLE. And Pietersen also now getting in to things.

    And now Sharma dismisses KP. He played well for his 76, but for the 250 we will need to see Buttler coming in and accelerating immediately.
