Well last night came as a more than pleasant and totally unexpected surprise. South Africa completely annihilated England in the crunch cricket match of the Super 8 leg, thereby knocking England out of the tournament. And after our dismal performance against the black hats earlier, I really didnt think we were going to do it. Though if we go by what the media is saying, perhaps all the boys needed was a stiff drink and a hell of a hangover to bring the best out of them.
Particularly satisfying of course was the no show of Kevin Pietersen. After his tussle of words with Graeme Smith during the week, he completely failed at getting any kind of decent score whatsoever. Ill bet he wishes he didnt have such a big mouth now :)
It was so nice to see us aggressively chase Englands modest total from the get go though. AB and Graeme shot out of the starting blocks, and basically well need to do it again if we stand any chance against the Almighty Aussies in the Semis.
The boys had better already start drinking then!
