A simply amazing day's cricket at Newlands today!
Yesterday (first day) Australia reached 214/8 from 55 overs. Nothing particularly startling there. Then today they continued to 284 all out, including a superb 151 from captain Michael Clarke.
SA then started their reply and had got to 49/1 by lunch.
After lunch the mayhem began, as SA were bowled out for 96 in 25 overs.
Then the Aussies went in to bat again - and were shot out for 47 in 18 overs!!! (after being 21/9 at one point!)
So the Saffies need 236 to win - and by the close, they were 81/1.
In all, 23 wickets fell in one day - and 20 of these fell in two sessions - which is pretty unusual!
'twas great watching though.
