Shock Victory for South Africa in One Day Cricket

Against Australia, South Africa has a memorable Gibbsed in a ODI recently on March 12, 2006.

Chasing 434/4 by Australia in 50 overs, they made 438/9, with a ball to spare on the flattest pitch at the Wanderers stadium. Alas, in Chennai, where I am living, due to the CAS (set top box ), we couldnt watch it, except on Star News for the final, nail biting over. The government should scrap the CAS or give it free. Now it costs rs 2919, plus taxes amounting to 3500 rs, and there is a monthly compusolry package of 230 to 299 rs. Now we pay flat at 100 rs only, even though it is expected to be at rs 72 only, rs 28 gets pocketed! No bills issued.

Mr.Ponting is stupid for not having shared the Man of the Match! Share the glory man!

Still they are celebrating!
