First topic message reminder :

With the wash out at Cardiff, this fixture has no less the importance of that as regards to whoever wins either keeps/gains the number one International ODI team position in the world. Both will give it everything they have.

Likely teams i would think pretty much as the first ODI, ie:

England.
AN Cook, IR Bell, IJL Trott, RS Bopara, EJG Morgan, C Kieswetter†, TT Bresnan, CR Woakes, GP Swann, JM Anderson, ST Finn.

South Africa.
GC Smith, HM Amla, D Elgar, AB de Villiers*†, JP Duminy, F du Plessis, R McLaren, WD Parnell, RJ Peterson, M Morkel, LL Tsotsobe

145/3 at the 30 over mark would be lovely for England. I'm hoping I can quote this in a few hours time.

That was a very strange moment indeed. I'm not going to lay into AB (although I believe in walking myself), but I thought that that situation cried out for the ability for the square leg or 3rd Umpire to say "I think you've made a shocker there" to Taufel. This should only apply to clear shockers like that one, which was one of the worst decisions I've seen from an elite umpire (let alone Taufel, one of the best), since Daryl Harper was sacked!

Amla is good but he's no Bopara. Bops to come in at 10-2 and smash 203* from 153 balls, winning England the game with 5 overs to spare.

Talking about that, Supersport just showed an homage of the test series that took them to number one. Awesome highlights.

Thanks Skye. Your own personal island will be ready for the next Ashes tour here... complete with dancing beach girls Very Happy

Biltong... let's hope for your sake it's a little longer than the last two 'reigns' (not that we use that as a yardstick for the best team) but if you go for more than 74 months I'm not talking to you again. Wink

I have no issue with ABDV not walking, I don't walk myself but I do admire people who do, but like someone mentioned earlier the thing that irked me was him tapping his shoulder and trying to pass off that that was the only thing it hit. There is a a difference between letting the umpire make his decisions which is what he is out there for (or at least that is my justification for not being a walker) and deliberately trying to con an umpire which is what AB was trying there. I don't watch him around the globe playing, but he does seem to do these things when he comes to England as I still remember him trying to claim a catch that bounced a foot in front of him on their last tour over here in a Test match. A very fine player, but he could tone down the gamesmanship a lot.

McLaren bowling close to 140 kph rather than 130. Interesting he's opening the bowling. Morkel has a different role since Steyn, Kallis and may be even Philander aren't playing?

I was making reference to the real Woolworths not your cheap imitations Very Happy . They were conveyors of tat and Pick n' Mix, which just means sweets that you pick yourself (after a thousand other people have had their hands in there) and put in a bag. They were a bit of an instituation over here but went bust a few years ago.

A bag of mixed sweets. Woolworths in the UK was (it went bust a couple of years back) a different style of store to what it is in SA (I presume), Aus and NZ. In Australasia it's a major supermarket chain.

Not in SA mate, here they are doing very well, a tad expensive though.

I prefer their savoury stuff, not really a sweet tooth.

lousy over from Tsotsobe, way too short and Bell cashes in with two fours, the first a beautifully timed back foot punch through point, the second a violent cut shot over the covers.

He's looking in great touch. On top of the bowling and hitting it sweetly.

It is a sweety selection. Thought Woolies went bust?

From Wiki

*The F. W. Woolworth Company (often referred to as Woolworth's or Woolworth) was a retail company that was one of the original American five-and-dime stores. The first Woolworth store was opened on July 18, 1879, by Frank Winfield Woolworth in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, as "Woolworth's Great Five Cent Store". Despite growing to be one of the largest retail chains in the world through most of the 20th century, increased competition led to its decline beginning in the 1980s. The chain went out of business in July 1997, when the company decided to focus on the Foot Locker division and renamed itself Venator Group. By 2001, the company focused exclusively on the sporting goods market, changing its name to the present Foot Locker Inc.

*Woolworths Group plc originally was the British unit of F.W. Woolworth's, but operated independently as a separate company from 1982, running stores in the UK, Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey. On November 26, 2008 Woolworth's Group plc announced that they were in too much debt to maintain their outgoing payments. The remaining British Woolworth's stores closed by January 6, 2009, with the loss of almost 30,000 jobs.

*Woolworths Limited is the largest retail corporation in Australia, operating a variety of supermarket and other retail chains in Australia and New Zealand. The name "Woolworths" was legally taken to capitalize on the F.W. Woolworth name since they did not do business in Australia and had not registered the trademark there but is in no other way connected to the U.S. or U.K. Woolworths.

*Woolworths is an upmarket retail chain in South Africa selling goods of a comparable nature to Marks & Spencer stores in the United Kingdom. The South African company also operates stores in Bahrain, Botswana, Kenya, Lesotho, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Oman, Qatar, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

*Woolworth GmbH was the German unit of F.W. Woolworths, but has operated independently since 1998 as a result of the original company's change of focus.

*Woolworth Mexicana operates a chain of small variety stores in Mexico, sold in December 1997 to Control Dinamico S.A. by Foot Locker Inc now is a subsidiary of Grupo Comercial Control, S.A. de C.V.

MSP, the only reason I can think of is McLaren's form is questionable and de Villiers may have thought England might start circumpectly and could get a few overs under the belt.

Bell charges Morkel, doesn't get hold of it, but it draws the short ball next up and Bell dispatches that one with ease to the backward square boundary.

No Pick n' Mix?
What's pick a mix?


It is a sweety selection. Thought Woolies went bust?
Not in SA mate, here they are doing very well, a tad expensive though.

I prefer their savoury stuff, not really a sweet tooth.

To clarify, Woolworths in SA = M&S in the UK

PS The cheat accusations are getting massively tiresome.

So far, a good rebuilding job done by these 2. Just reached a fifty partnership, Bell the aggressor and Trott the anchor.

Not sure that's good think from AB if that is the case. Early wickets would be key to set up the match when defending a total, and I thought Morkel was the best bet. McLaren could have been brought on after a couple of wickets, or after the first powerplay ends. Anyways McLaren didn't go for many, Tsotsobe was more expensive. Would be interesting to see what the SA spinners can come up with. Samit Patel got a few to turn, and Swann bowled well. But South Africa had Amla to deal with a lot of the stuff, has to be seen as to how would Petersen, Duminy and Elgar would come up against Bell and co.

Ian Bell after being presented with a rather unexpected opportunity to restart his ODI career has been consistently scoring runs. I wasn't quite convinced with his ability to consistently score quick runs, a couple of his 50s that took a lot of time didn't help and I thought he would be leaving a lot on Cook. But in both the matches so far he has shown a very refreshing attitude. His ability was not much of the issue of concern, but his temprament. But he is evolving well, and at last seems like mentaly free to take on the challenge.

Peterson on, and England unfurl the reveres sweep, Bell for three and Trott for four. 63-1, not much turn there.

Trott gone, Elgar nearly makes a hash of it by running in but recovers well to take a fine catch. Bops, your time is now.

See the difference, England catch like Akmal on payday...SA catch like Collingwood hearing they might be dishing out OBEs
