    He deserved the 100.
    He did in the context. Also, thats probably the test, forgetting about him missing the 100 for a second, its a huge wicket for SA

    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?

    Its weird how previously annoying batsmen become so much more likeable when they play for a weak team
    My work here is done . Third time I've unintentionally jinxed a batsman this year by posting online.

    Hah, no disrespect to Sachin. But Ponting will pass him. May even get 50 test hundreds.

    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?

    I think Ponting forgot to take his Swiss Ulti-Vites when he was on 99 not out.
    NRL Tipping Champion 2014

    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).

    If Channel 9 and Cricinfo said it, it must be true.

    Rubbish. Most successful run chases would be in the small ball-park (relatively speaking - that is say under 250). The only reason they are saying that is because the unsuccessful small run chases tend to stick in the head, and in these cases depend on the surface and bowlers. In the case of the "glorious" channel 9 commentary team, it is nothing more than wishful thinking. (Its just a shame I cannot see Ian Healy's face. Also, I wonder if Nicholas will jump ship?)

    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.

    Ah, I understand. Makes a lot of sense, actually.




    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.
