South Africa are going to have to chase a big total here.

It's a team life cycle thing.

Australia are currently about 3-4 years post maturity and will probably slip until they peak again in 10-15 years.

New Zealand are still building a team which will be around for a long time (Marshall, Vincent, Marshall, McCullum, Vettori, Franklin, Oram, Styris, Adams) with some experienced campaigners to learn from for the next 2-4 years (Astle, Cairns, Fleming). Pakistain are just hitting maturity now.

Those 7-1 odds for NZ to win the cup are looking mighty tasty.

Australia declare with a 490 lead.


No chance for South Africa, probably not even for a draw.

australia will win this sometime in the final session tomorrow by 250 + odd runs

south africa's best chance to make an impression on anything this series WAS at the waca, but it now looks like a 'run of the mill' sweep coming up

Could always try and catch some cricket here

Draw. The spotlight's on Rudolph at the moment but I'm very impressed with Kemp. He had a great series against NZ and while I didn't follow the India series too closely I think he's going to be a constant irritant to the Aussies.

Draw, as expected.

Australia simply don't have the firepower to dismiss a side in one day. I asked of a mate at lunchtime "what team can only take 2 wickets in 2 sessions on a fifth day wicket?" He dryly replied "The same team that cannot defend 330 in an ODI!".

Doesn't look like it, mate!

Every support has its arseholes, Cricket Australia will do well to find these idiots and ban them.

edit: Good on Punter to speak out. I'm hardly the man's greatest fan but he's spoken out when necessary.

Now let's carry on with the cricket.

Interestingly, Warne plans to make Justin Kemp his new 'bunny'. Jesus, cut the guy some slack. Rudolph made him take most of the strike against Warne and he made a 50, his previous best being 16!

Can't wait for the second test starting tomorrow. Here's hoping either Symonds smashes a hundred off 60 balls or he gets a duck and Clarke comes back.

And good to see another young Aussie getting a chance - New South Wales opener Phil Jacques has been named in the side to replace Justin Langer. I was hoping he'd make his debut, and so that they wouldn't just push Hussey up to open. Good luck mate

Last of all - Punter, you did nothing wrong in declaring 490 runs ahead. Hodge made a double century and tell me how many people expected South Africa to not get bowled out by the Aussies. Cut him him some slack too. 127 overs ws plenty of time, South Africa just played exceptionally well.

PS - I have been told I bowl like Vettori - very pleased. Vettori rocks!

Most nuetral cricketing observers (i.e. Axver and myself) thought it was too late. Australia simply doesn't have the firepower, on a dead pitch like that fifth day WACA, to bundle a team out. Pontings decleration was half the problem, the middle orders slow batting was the other half.

This is the first Boxing Day in years which has the potential to live up to the hype.
