    SA wins in extraordinary fashion

    So, SA (not surprizingly) beats the Netherlands.

    It was an extraordinary performance. Filled with records falling.

    1. Gibbs hitting six sixes.
    2. Boucher hitting faster ever fifty in a world cup match.
    3. SA's biggest ODI winning margin (runs).
    4. There's probably more.
    There is a lot of positives for SA, like this being only a 40 over game, and they scored a score worthy of a 50 over game. And all the batsmen looking well, etc.

    However, 1 very big questionmark for me is, SA's inability to take 10 wickets. Even against a minnows side like the Netherlands only 6 wickets (and 3 runouts) were recorded in 40 overs.

    But I guess that taking wickets is not so important for ODI's. It's just a worry.

    I heard some of the commentators say that the "quota" of players are 4 non-whites playing, and 7 in the squad. This time there wasn't 4 playing, but Ntini was late in coming to the West Indies so that's why he missed this one.

    With that in mind then, it'll be AB de Villiers and Andre Nel and Andrew Hall competing for the white spot. With my guess being Loots Bosman playing the most, as SA's batting seems to be strong enough at the moment.
