The seat looks very BMWish. Size is big..could it be an older 7 or 5 as it does not have the center DVD screen.

I thought it was a brave decision by Ponting to declare knowing what happened at Perth. But then, this is what we need in the Test matches and I believe the decision will give him the desired result.

Smith comes into bat. Very good match indeed. Still 119 away from Victory.

Gutsy Smith bats with fractured finger. Will SA last 4 more overs?

Ponting has won the bet !!

If Ponting had delayed for 10 deliveries, the match would have been a draw.

Thats true, he has resigned due to rift with board officials overthe coach issue.

Yes they won but i loved SA spirit to fight till the end and hats off to Smith for trying to save the test despite being injured. If he was fit i dont think Ponting could have won the bet!

Hats off to Smith for coming on to bat even with an injured elbow & a broken hand. Now that is never say die attitude!

And as for England, both KP & their coach Peter Moores have resigned.

Two absolutely stunning matches today.

One was the Aus Vs SA match where SA were cruising along comfortably towards a win and then a sudden middle order collapse turned the match in Australia's favor but Albie Morkel saw SA through to a much needed win after two T20 losses.

The other match was Srilanka Vs Bangladesh. Srilanka almost lost the cup when Muralidharan came and played to cameo to save their blushes. A fantastic match and well played Bangladesh!! . Would you believe that at one stage Srilanka were 6/5 . Yes, they lost the first 5 wickets for 6 runs .

And the third one was the last day of the Ranji Trophy final. Less interesting though since only formalities were left and Mumbai won comfortably.
