    Enjoy the experience Sledger, it must be a great priviledge to witness the series after all the hype surrounding it!

    Only if he can score 3 centuries in one game.

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Nope, (I'm a "back in my day type" when it comes to cricket)... they are just very stuffy and unaccomadating..

    I always point to the time Allan Donald was leaning on the balcony after thrashing England out of sight in 1994.. He was draped in the brand new SA flag of democracy and was told "Sorry, no flags on display in the ground please"

    Then they refused Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu access to the SA dressing room (i think).. Possibly two of the most special human beings of the 20th century.. Do you think they would tell Jesus Christ to f*** off?
