    Nailbiter!

    Oh my shattered nerves! Last night's game against Sri Lanka turned out to be quite a thriller.....when Malinga took 4 wickets (off 4 balls) it looked like we might snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, but, PHEW, we managed to hang in there for the last three runs

    I was just sitting there going "You've got to be kidding me."

    Scary moment.

    Cricket can sure be wierd sometimes.

    One thing for sure, it's been a world cup for new records. I doubt there has been a world cup with more records, other than the first one of course

    I had already dozed off, in the secure knowledge that the next SA game would be screened soon, when I heard the first - "oh okay, we are still well in and ahead " coming from the lounge. This progressed to uhoh! Then...... you gotta be kidding me Then.....OH SH*T Then.....I can't watch this, Ooooh NOoooo with each ball.................until a very sedate "oh thank heavens that's it!"

    You gotta love this game!
    Regards

    Well at least we shouldn't need medication tonight. On paper it should be no problem.

    Care to cast your mind back to the warm-up game against Ireland?

    Irish skipper Trent Johnston (4-40) and Dave Langford-Smith (3-30) reduced South Africa to 91-8 before Andrew Hall (67 not out) and Robin Peterson (29) added 85 for the ninth wicket to help their team post 192.

    Ireland then batted well and were cruising towards the target with 139-4 before being bowled out for 157.

    I did say on paper, and of course cricket is played on grass
    I reckon we'll be OK, though.

    After Bangladesh things should get interesting. The Windies will be looking for a win to stay in the running, and NZ is looking VERY dangerous. I'm most interested in the NZ/RSA game. Most important thing — keep winning
