    I want to see SA need 8 runs for victory with 1 wicket in hand with 2 balls left, only to have a comical mix-up where ABdV and Morne Morkel end up at the same end, but Moises Henriques drops the ball and breaks the stump with his shoulder, so de Villiers scrambles back and no run is scored, and then Morne Morkel bops Mohammed Shami over long off for six.

    ABDV facing, no run scored, and Morkel faces the last ball?

    South Africa still lose in that scenario too.

    And it's totally realistic that Moises Henriques is sub-fielding for India at the time, too.

    I heard he saw what Binny's wife looks like and decided it's a sweet gig being India's bits-and-pieces allrounder so decided to switch allegiance.

    n00fers, I get the feeling that you haven't seen the pakistan squad for the world cup?
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
