    I hope the rain clear for at least 2 hours play, it could be difficult to survive.

    Pity, all set for a great day's cricket, hope the game can reach a conclusion without the weather deciding the outcome, I reckon SA are favourites to take it.

    Anyone knows the weather forcast for the rest of the day?

    It looks like rain for most of the day. Ironically it is set to clear up around 4pm (if you believe Could spoil what would have been a great day of cricket.

    If it stops after lunch... I am sure the Aussies will go for it. Lots of wickets or (bleg!) lots of runs. Either way it will be worth the wait.

    Dissapointing! Was going to be a veru exciting game!

    Let's hope there is some play but not enough time for the Aussies to get the required runs and it would be nice to see how the bowlers go. A draw means the Proteas win the series!!!
