    *Official* CW XI in South Africa



    For the first time in 11 years, the Cricket Web XI will return to South Africa for a full tour. On the inaugural tour of South Africa, the Webheads lost 2-1 in Tests and had mixed results in the one-day international tri-series, also involving India.

    The tour was marked not only by the debut of the CW XI at international level, but also several monumental individual performances. Andrew Cloete stroked the highest Test score by a Webhead - 240. David Kennett, now an outsider to the ODI squad, took 7 for 22 against South Africa, and that remains the record haul for a Webhead in limited overs cricket.

    Now the Cricket Web XI return to play 5 Tests and 7 ODIs on what will certainly bigger one of the toughest tours to date. It is the first 5-Test away series to be contested by the Webheads in 8 years.

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Should be a cracking series, two of the best ODI sides locking horns. Not bad Test sides either...

    Good stuff, will keep me interested over the (probably loooong) off-season.

        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Excellent!

    Hope to keep my place in the ODI side and at least make the test tour with the hope of gaining my spot back.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
