Sachin probably breathing a huge sigh of relief though. He's closing in and fast.
God he must be feeling double terrible now! Not sure why he was in a hurry to get to 100...Is it the first time he's out on 99?
Ouch. Tough luck, Punter.
All out for less than 250?
Man, this is an agonising game for Australia.
Couldn't be happier though. Loving it!
Both Cricinfo and the Channel 9 commentary said that it can be harder to chase down small totals than big ones, so it seems like South Africa might be in a fair bit of trouble if they don't bowl them out before stumps?
Larry David: I know my sources. Sophia Loren was once a source.
I think Ponting forgot to take his Swiss Ulti-Vites when he was on 99 not out.

Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).
Only way SA will lose this is if they choke. Otherwise they have comprehensively demolished Australia, and deserve to win.
Edit/ 9 down and 167 in front.

Speaking of Channel 9, they just said if the Saffies have to bat now, they can't do much - they should just intend to survive.
Do they mean that there's no point "getting in?" Because surely you can knock a few runs off the total, that's gotta be good.
