    Lord: the game works where you pick the bowlers in game so I will use your given 6 unless the oppenents reach a score/partnership so as to make the named 6 seemingly innefective. (ie 350/2 or 400/3 etc.)

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."

    looks a fairly easy lineup to me..we should run them over with a score of 400+ then myself & L.E will pretty much unleash hell on the top-order & break some stumps.

    Conditions: Warm
    Pitch: Hard- expected to deteriorate
    Outfield: Fast
    Weather: Rain expected for short spurts throughout Test match.

    Toss: SA

    Captain Smith walks eagerly out to the middle with his opening partner Gibbs. They are followed by Langeveldt who leads 10 debutants on the field as the Cricketweb XI prepare to contest their first Test macth since being suddenly elevated to Test level by the ICC.

    SA crush CWXI in Historic 1st Test!!!

    Well, lets get the call from expert commentator David Hookes.


    69.6 Pollock to David, OUT, What a brilliant catch by Makhaya Ntini

    David 1 (8b)
    c. Ntini b. Pollock


    End of innings (70.0 overs)
    Day 5 2:33 PM
    CRICKET WEB XI 199/10
    (Run Rate: 2.84)
    Shaun Pollock 12.0-4-30-3
    Tim 9(24b 2X4)


    So the Cricketweb XI have lost their firt International match. It's an historic day but an important one. There were good signs and performances from an undoubtedly talented team throughout the 5 contested days, but South Africa were just too good.

    In an impressive gesture, Tim and David each grab a stump as they walk off to commemorate a good Test match.


    END OF MATCH


    Thats the end of the match
    South Africa were in control most of the time and deserved this victory
    Cricket Web XI didnt have a chance chasing this total
    Thats all the cricket for now


    South Africa 411/5d & 186/2d
    Cricket Web XI 240 & 199

    South Africa won by 158 runs

    Man of the match: Jaques Kallis
    Methinks the selectors have a bit of thinking to do.
