    Neesham LBW to McClaren. 2 wickets in 3 balls. Cribb is gutted.

    105/7, game over you'd assume.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

Good wakeup call for SA who have been unconvincing in this format for some time though Kirsten said he will rotate bowlers because of Pakistan series coming up so they probably will not put best side in the field during this series. Smith and Ingram need to go though.

    Ah, still a fail though.

    Mr PRez, betting on value is not a fail. And taking pleasure in someone losing a bet is pretty low too.

    It's the irony that I'm laughing at.

    Think their top order would have really struggled batting first. Williamson looked average against the shortish deliveries. Kiwis have always been competitive in ODIs and did well with the ball but have disappointed with the bat considering the lowish total they're chasing.

    Depends who's making said bet, surely?

    We're gutted for you, obvz, but PEWS's mishandling of the Big Bash tipping is still fresh in a lot of minds.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Tbf, an ODI average of 35 is hardly "not international class." I still back Ingram.

    Would be happy for Smith to go if there was someone good enough to replace him. Can't really think of anyone who is up for it though.

    Agree with you that Miller should be getting a gig.

    But Ingram doesn't have anything dynamic about him. Doesn't look classy. Miller looks talented and explosive.
