the last 24 hours has been quite good for a English fan

when your biggest rival loses hopelessly it's always nice

I have no idea why. It's not like Australia are New Zealand. Some of this Aussie-bashing that goes on on this board is frankly ridiculous, although CrashedCarDriver's idiotic comments don't help.

Fair play to South Africa though. Ntini took 6-22, and he didn't even finish all his overs. Amazing.

Very nice. Even nicer when it's your own country that does it.

South Africans, Kiwis and Brits unite in the pointing and laughing!

I'm just about as entitled to point at laugh at New Zealand for losing their last ODI against one of the crappiest West Indies sides you may ever see. Oh, but wait, no one wants to talk about New Zealand here, they just want to bash Australia.

Oh, and don't give me all that jazz about how the game doesn't matter. Half this board was crowing about the Black Caps' win in the dead rubber during the last Chappell-Hadlee series.

I'm sorry if I come off as an Australia fan because I'm not (my country doesn't play Test or ODI cricket so I'm technically neutral), but I just find it completely and utterly ridiculous the amount of Australia-bashing that goes on on this board.

We're not all New Zealanders, you know. This animosity towards Australia's sporting teams becomes instilled at a very young age. It's passed on from generation to generation, particularly in South Africa. My memories of watching cricket matches with my family members went along the lines of "pass the biltong, 'n bliksem die Aussies." If you weren't born into that, of course you won't understand it. I'm not saying it's necessarily right, but it's part of the game for many of us.


Kom, Proteas, gaan moer die Aussies!

I just think people ought to be more concerned with their own countries than how Australia's doing. I appreciate that watching your rival lose is fantastic (I get that in football a lot, which will always remain my favourite sport) but nothing ever comes close to the feeling when your team wins. And I know your team won yesterday, but the messages I keep getting are not 'South Africa won' but 'Australia lost'. Oh well, I'm just a lone voice in this, I think. Maybe there's a cultural gap or something. Carry on slagging off the Australians.

Anything that I've said I've only meant as light hearted teasing if its come across as anything like as strong as 'Aussie-bashing' then I apologise.

You're right about it being mainly "Haha. Australia lost" rather than "Well done South Africa won" so what actually happened in this Test? Was it superb play by South Africa or crap play by Australia or a mixture of both?

Frankly, I've seen very few unjustified comments about Australia, and even the more insulting comments have some truth in them.

Massive to South Africa. Now if only someone could beat Australia and the USA at the same time ...!

when the #1 ranked team in the world gets bowled out for less than 100 you're bound to get making fun/joking responses.

that said, great bowling by Ntini for South Africa


and as far as being more intersted in Australia losing then my team winning, i can assure you that if England manage to win this test in India i will be far happier than when i see the Aussies lose

It's not hard to beat the USA in cricket, and you could beat the USA and Australia in separate games of cricket, but to beat both of them at exactly the same time?

"Today, New Zealand defeated both Australia and the USA ..."
