It is just an abandoned match, scores still count.

yeah runs will be counted.
Cricket in pakistan is finished. They can now just hope to play at neutral venues. Moreover Indo/Pak rivalry finished long back. Now our main rivals are the OZ

IND-NZ 2nd ODI ...

Play stopped due to rain .. Ind 113/1

Got up early in the morning and what treat for eyes by Viru and Sachin .. Sachin was out of shots earlier but slowly got into form and the play has just stopped ...

Viru got a very very bad decision... The ball clearly hit his pads and the umpire just gave in to a prolonged appeal .. otherwise he was very much getting his century in 60 balls ..:(

Default Hughes hits 100 in style

Hughes reaches 105 from 87 in one over with a 4 & 2 sixes. This is second match and first century. What guts this guy has!

It seems that Aussies will place themselves in most comfortable position completely writing off the "losing" worry. I expect them to score 500+ before they bounce on SA.. Let's hope SA's making this a tame draw

The bouncy Durban pitch is taking toll on the hosts !
AUS lost their last five wickets for four runs but SA lost 2 in the first over while chasing 352 and are now at 138/7, with still 14 needed to avoid follow-on.

But the worst for SA was their captain Smith was struck on his gloves off a snorter from Johnson , and broke his finger in the process - he'll be out for the next 2-3 weeks. But the good thing is Kallis got a lethal delivery from Johnson inured his jaw - and its not serious.

IND VS NZ 3rd ODI .. Ind 69/2 in @ drinks .. The pitch a bit on the slower side and the Ind batsmen are not at their fluent best ...

India scored 392 for the loss of 4 wickets...

Sachin Tendulkar was in vintage form today. Scored an unbeaten 163. He had to walk off with an injury else a lot of people (including me) were expecting him to reach the 200-run mark.

Munaf Patel exposed ! Umpire removes him from bowling crease . After being frustrated, he bowled 2 beamers in same over to go off bowling !!!
Guess he was just a free-rider on tour.

His figures in this match: 7.2 0 79 0 10.77

although india got thru but did not do so without a heavy scare. I hope dhoni will not underestimate the kiwis fight back abilities. world record for no. of sixes being hit in a ODI..... Wow what a pleasure seeing the ball sail thru long on & long off. great game of cricket

I absolutely hated yesterdays match. In my opinion, cricket should not be played on that ground. Its too small and to me, its not fun seeing mishits go for sixes. Boring. We have the Hong Kong sixes for those who enjoy this kinda cricket.

Anyways, why can't grounds be of standard size, or withing a delta of 10% ?

And what is the height of optimism ? Read below.
