    Yes I have to agree, thought the entertainment was top drawer. At times when you were searching for superlatives for South Africa's chase, you were thinking of the equivalent derogatory terms for West Indies shambolic bowling and fielding.

    WI discpline went awol in the second half of the game, and probably only Fidel Edwards comes out of that second half performance with any credit. Gayle not bowling was mystery, unless he has also picked up a little niggle. He couldn't have been tired he only batted for around 15 overs! You cannot drop Gibbs (twice) and Kemp and not expect to be punished, and they duly were.

    Credit to SA for a great run chase, and to do it with over 2 overs left, quite remarkable.

    Didn't he have some sort of injury in England that meant he couldn't bowl properly? I remember reading about it, and then watching a game where he did bring himself on for an over and his style was very relaxed, far more than usual. Seemed as though he wouldn't be able to put any revolutions on the ball. Given the sucess that spinners have had in Twenty20, I would've thought that Gayle might have rolled the arm over, but as you say, the ground probably had a big part to play in that decision.

    Impressive victory by the Proteas but IMO West Indians shouldn't have lost this game, but as we all are aware of South Africa's record while chasing on this ground so i guess can't really blame West Indies for losing this game.
    Superb knock by Gibbs yesterday he looked like he was in the same zone that he was in when he scored that 175 in the 438 game against Australia.
    In the end poor bowling and unimaginative captaincy from Sarwan cost West Indies the game more than anything else.

    Imagine going to watch a game of cricket and having those ****ing dancers in front of you for the whole game. 20/20, bringing in the real fans.

    Anyway, good chase from SA, dismal defending. Big disappointment for me personally, I guess I had high hopes, like EWS said on the last page.

    Yeah, it's going to be a bit like that for me during the whole tournament. Really going to struggle I reckon.

    You all should have been there. Great atmosphere. Huge hits. Saffies cheered Gayle on as much as Gibbs. All very exciting. I don't think the TV can really do justice to 20/20 games. Windies through it away, though. I could boo very loudly and legitimately. And I did! It's going to go down hill from here for us if Gibbs and Smith are injured. I only found out about that when I go home.
    20/20 I love it!
