England v South Africa

Recommended Posts

Pietersen has his century, 219-3.

 

He is a bit of a tit, but you can't help but admire his skills with the bat.

 

EDIT: what a tit, he gets himself out next ball! He played well though and England are in a good position now.

The UK Media will be full of captain marvel and a resurgent England.

 

 

Not at all. For example, yesterday Beefy comes out to do his pitch report and says that it is "a flat as a pancake" and loads of runs to be had. SA get a good start; 100 odd for 1 and all the commentators are saying how well SA are doing (and how our bowling is substandard). We take a few wickets and suddenly rather than a spell of inspired bowling, it is SA throwing their wickets away because there is nothing to play for.

 

SA (Smith in particular) and AUS are two team that will never give up, even if there is little to play for.

As long as the weather holds up, it should be a grand days entertainment tomorrow bro, the best day of the test. If SA bowl well, 197 will be a tough ask. I can see us struggling to get that. However, if we make a decent start, it could be a good win and a few beers in celebration of yet another win in a dead series match.

I think SA will hammer us from pillar to post in the one dayers.

Given the series score, the cricket is a side show.

 

Early start, lots of Red Stripe, a cuban cigar and Onion bhaji's (a cricketing staple for me and the lads), a few cheap strip pubs nr the Oval or the Griffin on Clerkenwell Road, then a piss up up West. ACE

 

Nah should be a half decent run chase and for a spectacle a few early losses may bring out the middle order for an entertaining day. Either way I suspect your right about the one dayers.

That is pure class right there. Red Stripe, a Cuban Ceee-gar and Onion Bhaji's is a magnificent combination.

Well yeah....fair enough. I didn't realize that the Brit Oval allowed that inside the ground.

I love these little chases, especially when time is a factor ie the batting team either buckles down for the draw if a load of wickets are lost or the weather reduces the amount of overs possible. For some reason, teams often find it tough chasing a total of 150-200, especially when the first wicket falls before the score reaches 20. Should be an interesting day.

I can see us getting rolled today. The top 5 just don't perform when under pressure (except maybe KP). I think its going to be overcast as well, perfect for bowling.

 

Should be a fascinating day though.
