    SA knocks out WI

    This game was spectacular.

    Sixes and fours, and that on a pretty big field. Gibbs's one six knocked out a reinforced window. One of Powell's (I stand to be corrected) knocked through the ICC world cup advertising. It may be made from paper though, I wouldn't know.

    SA batted them out of the game (aided by the powerplay that was not taken until very late). Smith said afterwards that the game was won quite early, and I have to agree. With Chanderpaul's departure, things were looking dire. But after Gayle's run-out you kinda knew there had to be a miracle for WI to win.

    I liked the selection, though Langeveldt can feel very unlucky not to have played. But who do you leave out? Bosman? You have to drop a batsman if you want to have Langeveldt and Nel. SA's batting is what wins them games at the moment.

    I would've liked SA taking 10 wickets though. Smith bowled himself, and although he picked up 2 wickets, I think Pollock should have finished his spell, and maybe he should've given Kallis his full 10 as well. The commentators claimed it was because of time pressures... But if you take 10, time is a non-issue, and the Nett Run Rate is much better.
