    Weather looks ok :) Anything over 170 is a good score. That's if you guys can get there. I'm guessing we're going to tie you down to 150 max.

      now that AB is out ... the biggest choker of all is coming to bat ... the USELESS ALBIE MORKEL!!!!!

    Levi hopefully can fire again but he seems to battle against spin. Go Proteas!

      gustav.kriel.3 - 2012-09-28 12:24

      boom.afridi.56 - 2012-09-28 12:50

      i've seen crazy stuff happen in cricket. we tend to implode sometimes so it's not over until it's over. lol Gustav, 2 matches after this. you probably only need to win 2 out 3 and a solid run rate to go through.

      gustav.kriel.3 - 2012-09-28 12:53

      and then we choke after that.... some1 once said..."to predict the future you must look at the past"

  • kgopotso.mongale - 2012-09-28 12:44

  • dieter.muller.942145 - 2012-09-28 12:55

    Pakistan won't make the score --- they will only make 50 runs or so and make millions with the bookies
