Greatest ever match in one-day cricket

It's being called the greatest one-day international in the history of the game. Australia score a massive, world-record score of 434 runs in their fifty overs -- 424 runs! The South African crowd expect the worst, the newspaper headlines are made up for the next day - 'South African Disappointement,' 'Tourists Score Big' etc. -- and then South Africa go out and hit 438 with one ball to spare!

Now that is top international sport. And just imagine how gutted you'd be if you were an Australian cricketer. :-)

  1. Unbelievable. What a bugger I'm not in Sydney for another month. :)

    I suspect that most Australian-based Kiwis will have a very pleasant day, today!
