Think they'll be rolled for about 280 methinks. Sadly, Amla is in atrocious form.

They're going at 5rpo at the moment so I figure they're not too interested in the blockathon anyway, and besides, that last test in India was a special case where South Africa seriously struggled batting against the wicket - and felt that playing as conservatively as possible was likely to give them the best chance at the most preferable result.

Wow check out that South African collapse.

And Afghanistan seem to have got the better of Zimbabwe...

Holy shit Travis Head! Talk about winning from the brink of a capitulation, and hitting 3 sixes off the last over to finish with a T20 hundred.

Wow, that sounds like it was one of the great finishes.

Meanwhile Sri Lanka have kept themselves alive with a remarkable form turnaround to knock off the Black Caps in Nelson.

Yet another thriller in the BBL tonight. Thunder seemingly coming home, Andre Russell hits a massive six, then gets out to a great catch, shortly after Hussey skies one and an even better catch is taken, then Hartley gets a diamond duck from a Dan Christian rocket throw next ball, with Paine taking a screamer off an edge to make it a hat trick. Exciting stuff.

The end of tonight's game is turning into a thriller! Looked like the Thunder would do it until Huss got out, and now in consecutive balls they've copped a diamond duck with an amazing direct hit runout and then a golden duck with a screamer of a catch by Paine. Hobart are right back in it. They need to take only two wickets, but the Thunder have an achievable target of 21 off 12. Exciting stuff.

Wow those posts were eerily similar.

I wanted Hobart to win - in fact, since I have no basis on which to choose between the two Melbourne teams I'm finding Hobart are starting to have a "my team" feel - but I also would've liked a couple of those attempted big hits by the Thunder in the last two overs to have come off just to really take it even closer to the wire. Very enjoyable game to watch.

Missed the last couple of games! Glad the Thunder are finally having some success. Lel at the Renegades getting chased down with ease. Goes to show the vagaries of this format. Reckon they've got the most appealing openers in T20 history and they got smashed by 10 wickets. Would be pretty laughable if neither Melbourne side makes the finals. Still half the group games to go yet though.

Also, what would your XI be for the World T20? Boof is very keen for the Aussies to take Lyon over Hogg (who had a shitful tournament last time anyway). I'll have a stab:

A. Finch (c)
D. Warner
M. Klinger
C. Lynn
G. Bailey
G. Maxwell
B. Haddin (+)
J. Faulkner
C. McKay
M. Starc
N. Lyon
C. Boyce (12th)

That's a fucking strong team. The top five are all in form, you can't leave Maxi out, Haddin pretty much picks himself at the moment, Faulkner gives you plenty as the all-rounder, McKay knows his place and is performing well and Starc and Lyon are just both that good that even without a heap of T20 gametime you'd be fucking stupid not to pick them.
