South Africa vs Australia ( 12 March 2005 ) WOW

What a game (no not India vs England), South Africa vs Australia.

What a game. For one team to score over 400 runs in a one day match is truely amazing, but for Australia to score 434 runs then South Africa to score 438 is astounding.

Is this a new trend? I think it may have something to do with 20/20 cricket which is making teams believe that they can make and chase huge scores.

I suppose that with the amount of one day cricket being played we have to have a few freak matches along the way

I was watching Star News and they said that ODI scores increase by an average of 20 odd runs a year, but for two teams to score so highly in one game is something very special.

I hope they don't carry that kind of form into next years world cup in the West Indies ;-))

The woman who wanted nothing...

This is a quick story that my mum told me recently.

There was once a poor, blind, childless old woman. She was just about to die and God asked her if she wanted anything before he took her. She said that she didn't want anything except for the following.

All I want to do is see my grandson being fed with a silver spoon.

She didn't ask for much did she!!??!!
