  • The Cricketing thread. Restricted Admission, strictly no Philistines or yobs.

    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.

    In reply Ireland were 73 for 4 in the 16th over but Balbirnie and Dockrell put on 143 for the fifth wicket which fell in the 43rd over. Another wicket fell in the next over but Balbirnie (34) and McBrine (9) brought them home with an over to spare.

    Balbirnie who was dropped with seven runs needed scored 145 no in the end.

    In his 52 matches before today, he had scored 8 sixes. Well he scored 8 more today.
    All those who put their shirt on Ireland when the Taliban were 74/5 had a hairy ride until finally getting their winnings.

    From 418-6 to 113 all out. England have some good players but not the few world class you need to be a top team. Also reflected here is the unevenness of WI performances.

    In Hamilton, New Zealand won the toss fielded and has Bangladesh all out for 234.

    The NZ openers surpassed that total on their own, both making centuries and New Zealand batted all through the second day and most of the third, declaring when Williamson made his double century for 715 for 6.

    Bangladesh need 419 to avoid an innings defeat and are 174 for 4 at the close.

    In Dehra Dun, Ireland won the toss, batted and were all out for 161 in the last over. Paul Stirling just failed to carry his bat, being last man out for 89.

    Another misguided insertion in the Carribbean.

    West Indies won the toss, asked England to bat and watched them put on 100 for the first wicket and 418 for six in total.

    WI were doing all right, needing 32 from 3 with four wickets left until Rashid took four for none in five balls and England won by 29 with two overs left.

    807 runs scored and 42 sixes hit, a record.

    In Dehra Dun, in a T20 game, Afghanistan won the toss, batted and scored 278 for 3. The openers put on 236 and one of them got 162 no, all of which would have been a decent performance in a 50 overs game.

    In reply, Ireland scored 194 for 6 to lose by 84.

    That's the ninth consecutive limited overs game that Ireland have lost to Afghanistan.
