Ah well, looking at it this way, I couldn't have expected any less.

Oh, Tim, you should have put Affirmative Boula on the EP.

They asked Dr. Zuma but she looked very grim / She said "I can't play cricket, got a health problem" / Not ebooooola / An affirmative boula / She's not a very fast bouuula...

I put TMHJR on there because of the mainly English content & that last line "They took my TV last night, but it's better than living down under".

Game tonight.

Fleming remembers the first game I saw in South Africa!

Stephen Fleming, New Zealand captain, will go into the first of five one-day internationals against South Africa on Sunday with a vivid memory of a mistake he made on a previous visit to Springbok Park.

"We misread the pitch," said Fleming of a 2003 World Cup encounter against Sri Lanka. "We thought it would be hard, fast and bouncy and went in without a spinner. It turned out more like a sub-continent pitch and we were beaten."

Not tonight.

New Zealand at 71/3 after 17 overs. It looked like they were going along quite nicely and were headed for slightly above 250 until Fleming got out.

Now it looks like 250 would be a bit of a stretch.

Well, just ignore my ignorant post above.

Thanks to a strong 75-run partnership between McMillan and Oram, New Zealand are now at 185/5 after 40 overs. Certainly well within reach of 250.

Let us not talk about this game and instead focus on my defeat of South Africa with New Zealand in stick cricket.

What cricket?

I haven't seen it yet thanks to Fox Sports thinking that the A1 Grand Prix & Premier League Soccer were more imporant.

This series may be closer than I thought.

Maybe. I reckon the win was a fluke, however. Of course, I can't really give any honest speculation on this BECAUSE CRICKET APPARENTLY DOESN'T EXIST IN CANADA.

We got lotsa cricket, no wait, those are grasshoppers.

You should move to TO, GG, apparently they get the odd exhibition cricket game in the Skydome. Big cricket fan population their due to the large multiethnic population.

Cricket in Canada exists, I saw them play New Zealand in South Africa with my own two eyes!

Good game too for more than one reason come to think of it.

The only South African comedian worth talking about. I'll never forget the skit he did in Checkers with his "secret sauce" hamburger patties. Those poor people almost vomited.
