    Something Very Strange

    Maybe my South African friends could fill me in.

    But why did Eastern Province declare at 9/59 in their first inning and why is Western Province 5/24 in response?

    possibly the most bizarre scorecard i've stumbled across in ages

    That's strange. Maybe they forgot to put the covers out and they're playing on a sticky wicket?

    I'm guessing that points have something to do with the declaration...perhaps they lose points if they're bowled out? Must be a shocking pitch as well.

    Western Province have rallied a bit to 53/7!

    I think the groundsman should have a serious word with himself....

    I'd say that they declared to get them in on the dodgy wicket before the curator had the chance to fix up his mistakes overnight.

    Why did the Eastern Province skipper change the bowler who had 4 for 14 and they had Western on the mat at 6 for 30 or so ??

    Yeah, I bet a number 11 could've wasted, oh, four, maybe five deliveries!

    Played a game last year where it was a nightmare of a deck, and then 10 + 11 came out and just swung from their behinds and put on 40-odd and then put us in late in the day.

    Could the 62 run lead for Western Province be formidable?

    Too lazy to click a link, eh?

    Eastern Province 59-9d (Price 18 - de Stadler 4-17, Mahlombe 3-11) & 115-5 (Jeggels 39* - de Stadler 2-23) lead
    Western Province 121 (Munnik 59* (66b) - Meyer 5-38) by 53 runs with five wickets remaining.
