In fact even without the boost England get from D/L for losing 5 overs through no fault of their own, D/L says 237 so they'd needed 6 off the last ball.
Em you know it rained early in the SA inning as well? It rained three times that day a reserve day was set but the match completed before the scheduled time anyways. Blame channel 9. Also we had 4 fast bowlers, a medium fast pace and 2 medium pace bowlers so we did not cheat. We had no spinner and got punished 2 overs for it. If it did not rain we would have won the match 27 of 18 balls was easy within reach.

Denial most come from the English blood flowing through our veins. Fact is if it did not rain we would have won. Then again the English did choke in the final.......
Dunno what that is suppose to mean. Anyone can upload a video and give it a heading. Does not make it fact or true just someones half arse opinion. Oh wait that half arse opinion is yours which mean as much to me as wet toilet paper. But here's a biscuit
