I can't believe my eyes, what a match that must have been to watch.

Why did Mick Lewis bowl 10 overs?!?!?! Why not give another over or two to Symonds or Michael Clarke?

HOLY SHIT!!!

That simply HAS to go down as the greatest game of ODI cricket in history.

It's going to take forever to top that. WOW.

I'm hoping someone on the Aussie torrents websites, or any torrent site, may have recorded this game.

I'd Imagine Highlights would last a full 100 overs anyway

Whoever filmed the game has a moral obligation to release a DVD of it, complete with all the bells and whistles.

unless you're an aussie of course
you'll find australians are interested in the quality of the cricket, not solely winning. unlike some it seems.

Pt 3 is up. 45 minutes worth of highlights from what is potentially the greatest ODI ever...thank you ESPN Star for not showing it in any capacity whatsoever.

i never said you weren't interested in the quality of cricket, but are you telling me you enjoyed losing to SA like that?

Bugger it! I can't connect to any of those links, MySQL error everytime. Looks like too many people are trying to download them. But thanks, I'll keep trying. I must see this match, even if only highlights!

Statistically a brilliant game. I wouldn't say the best game ever (even close) as it featured some of the most consistently poor bowling in ODI cricket and South Africa had it rapped up pretty much for the last 100 runs of the chase.

Nonetheless, congrats SA. The mental fortititude was off the charts.

Little trivia fact that I haven't seen mentioned yet... the 2005/6 Australian team have now conceed the two highest successful run chases in ODI history.
