    SA takes 10 wickets - finally

    For me, the most impressive part of the win of yesterday, was the fact that SA took 10 wickets (2nd time this tournament previous was the win against Sri Lanka). Finally SA takes 10 wickets. I assume the pitch had something to do with it, and also the pressure of this crunch game may have gotten to England, but SA took 10.

    This feat will prove the real challenge when SA will (almost 100% likelihood) play Australia in St Lucia. If SA can make some inroads, and take wickets semi-regularly, the game will be on, and it will be tight.

    But SA takes wickets like this: Create pressure, and then take the wicket. The only 1 ball wicket taker is Ntini, but he is not on song this world cup. I guess I have to say Langeveldt too, as he has a hat-trick behind his name.

    The next exciting game is NZ vs Aus, and I am really, really looking forward to that.

    If NZ can beat Australia, then they could have slight doubts when SA gets them, and it could count for SA. But if Australia beats them, they may have overconfidence, and it seems SA is peaking at the moment.
