    the England cricket team a have a long and noble tradition of stealing defeat from the jaws of victory…that said even this looks like it would take a supreme effort of ineptitude

    and a run out so that is 7 down now

    Starts texting s African friends …sod it time to gloat now 😀

    I can’t watch it in the office, but from the figures it looks like Jimmy and Tredwell are on it.

    Pitch/conditions contributing to the low score?

    76 / 7 – agree junkyard. it would take a startling batting display to f*** this one up. But then as you say – defeat from the jaws of etc!

    Boom, baby!

    Seven down.

    Edit: too late. Projections for final SA score anyone? I’ll go for 118 due to pesky tailender beltage.

    great bowling vs average bating on a helpful pitch.

    Tredwell is a better one day bowler thn swann at present.

    I’m going for 133 a/o and us to win by 5 wickets

    How are we feeling about 133/8 then?

    Is anyone following the England – SA game.

    If we can’t win it from here there’s summit up!

    Great bowling / fielding from England…

    Don’t like the look of this partnership. If S.A can nudge towards 170+ it gives them something to bowl at and anything can happen if we lose a few early?

    I can’t help feeling the best thing for England would have been to get knocked out in the group stages and spend more time getting ready for the Ashes.

    I can’t see the value in playing a load of mickey mouse 50 over stuff when a home Ashes series is only a few weeks away.

    50 over international cricket is now just a contrived imitation of the real thing – and that ‘real thing’ is not T20 either!

    Good for confidence and form though.

    Well this is embarrassing. England reverting to type a bit by failing to keep the pressure up on the lower order.

    Confidence and form for some of the batters maybe, but for the bowlers I am not so sure.

    Nine down, finally.

    Kleinveldt clearly reading the wrong plot outline there. 👿

    Root’s cousin bought my mother in law’s house in Sheffield (proper random cricket commentator kind of comment that! True though)…

    I once saw Sir Viv Richards score a century against St. Austell and then deliberately sky the ball to get out gracefully.

    Not as good a cricketing story as yours maybe, but I liked it. 🙂

    Interestingly(?) England have been scoring at about the same rate as SA – they just have a load more overs in which to get to the target.

    Nice sensible play by them all day I think – mature batting knowing time is on their side.

    Good job all round…

    Cheers
