    Managed to get sky going and that was a good match. Managed to fall asleep before the collapse but from what I saw there's definite potential there and really just cost a wee bit by that poor young keeper and some of Williamsons tactical descisions.

    Williamson-brave innings, made sure we got a start. Tactically I think he made a mistake by delaying Southee and Boults second spells and would have liked to see them bowl in tandem.

    Anderson-Boy he has some talent, so so with the ball atm but he'll improve with time.

    Southee-no comment required

    Boult-a little inaccurate but he's only 18 and bowls 140+ consistently, gets alot of swing and really attacks the batsmen. He'll be alot of fun in the future

    Colson-Played some excellent shots and looks to have some real ability.

    Verma-bowled well but I'm not sure if he is one for the future, he's a bit slow so we'll need to take a bit of time to judge wether he has it for higher honours.

    Guptill-Bunce-Costly drops, think he needs some time with Steve Rixon as at times he got in real poor positions for catching the ball but he'll learn from this hopefully.

    Well done to India. I think there's some question marks over them mentally but there's huge HUGE potential in that side.

    Engelbrecht's catch was absolutely ridiculous. It was very, very much like this one for those who haven't seen it:



    Definitely bought back some memories of Jonty.

    Well it's fair to say Anderson's and Engelbrechts catches were two of the best i've seen at any level.

    You can't take anything away from Anderson's, it was an absolute blinder but I agree, Engelbrechts was quite simply the best catch I have ever seen.

    Heavy rain is apparently a big threat for the second semi-final and with the game being under lights, the team who bats second will surely have a much easier task than the side which bats first.

    England were able to chase down over 200 against the Sri Lanka’s after a rain interval saw the fielding Sri Lanka’s spray the ball all over the shop whilst, India were also able to chase over 200 - A score which given how the tournament has played thus far, was a very imposing task at the midway point.

    I fancy South Africa, their bowling attack is pretty handy and the Pakistani batsman much like the senior side is very inconsistent. As long as segregation and apartheid architects Smuts and Malan can give the side a good start, then the boys should be alright.

    This going to be tough to chase. Great effort by the Saffies so far.

    Rain stopped play, South Africans will not be pleased for they have a very challenging total and a plethora of slower bowlers, who may now struggle to grip the ball.

    They have played well but its no surprise to see the batting excel, they have a very good middle order and cricketers such as Vandiar and Smuts should only go on for bigger and better things.

    Who would that be? IMO, it would be harsh on Parnell if you thought it was someone else

    "19:40 local time: We have some good news, the covers are off and it will be a 47 over game. The target will be adjusted and we will get you all the information. Stay tuned.....

    The target for Pakistan is 252 in 47 overs. Play will start at 20:00 local time."


    More rain is apparently still expected for later on this evening so South Africa should go for the juggler and then if they do get a couple of wickets, stick on the slow bowlers and get through to 20 overs. Don't take PowerPlay three.

    Vandiar is for me the best cricketer in the team. Guy broke through to the Dolphins side this year and his record in schools cricket was absolutely phenomenal, really top player of spin as well.
    In regard to Parnell he is a 'goodish' bowler but not exceptionally quick and for me Arnold has the more potential, considering he has all the attributes to be a real firebrand, Parnell doesn’t.

    Another guy who also should go for is Yaseen Vallie, who hasn't had the best of tournaments but Peter Kirsten has said he is one of the best young cricketers he has ever seen and he is a fantastic hitter of the ball as well.

    Looks like the game will probably resume tomorrow with the cut off point being only fifteen minutes away.

    However, the game was a on a knife edge, with only seven balls left to the 20 over mark Pakistan still needed five runs to secure the game via D/L.

    Edit- Got my times all mixed up, still another hour left until cut off!
