This is too funny

http://www.espncricinfo.com/south-africa-v-india-2010/engine/current/match/463148.html

Quote:
Steyn to Harbhajan Singh, no run, 139.0 kph, What material is that stump made off? Use it to cut diamonds, I say! Steyn delivers another one of those pythons that lands on a length on middle and off, and seams away, leaving Harbhajan's attempted prod in another zip code altogether. It hits something on the way. South Africa go up in a huge appeal. The ball deviated off something. Turns out it hit the off stump on its way. The bails were not interested in falling down. Steyn is miffed beyond words!


Someone should advise Harbajan to see off the Steyn spell and then India should try and score. His backing away and playing does not seem the write way to go.

there is a chance Kallis might end up with more 100s than Mr Australia.

Kallis will easily go past Mr Australia. already on level currently. also average better than Mr Integrity.
he is the nearest competitor to gawd by a long margin(12 centuries at present). has age on his side compared to gawd. :D
(but does look older to gawd)

83.5 overs
Morkel to Tendulkar, SIX, 89.5 mph, SRT brings up Century No. 51 with a six over the wicket-keeper's head to the off side. And no, it's not an upper cut. It's far from it. Sachin knows he's dealing with a rampant attack here and chooses to go after every small indiscretion in line or length. This was short, so he got ready for the hook, but he did not account for the bounce. It took off and flew off the top edge, all the way, very fine and behind the wicketkeeper. The little man puts his hands up. Determined ton this.

Oh my SRT!!
wow! only gawd can play like this at 94 :mrgreen: rest are mere mortals

kallis is about 3 yrs younger than SRT...and 12 centuries behind....I think SRT will be playing longer than him just to prove a point - maybe to the age of 45 or so :) just retire from ODIs too to preserve his health...kinda like a VVS-MKI

What a session of test cricket! Great bowling from Steyn & Co. equally good reply from SRT. Good attacking cameo from Bhaji once the new ball lost its sheen. This is very good stuff.

great show bhajji. with gawd around even you play with superhuman effort.
Quote:
104.6
Steyn to Harbhajan Singh, no run, 87.2 mph, another short ball, but this time it slides harmlessly down the leg. Harbhajan wants to smash it, but misses. Steyn has a smile, Harbhajan has a smile. Friendly banter ensues!
104.5
Steyn to Harbhajan Singh, no run, 90.6 mph, saw that coming didn't you. Steyn lets rip a steamy bouncer that was destined to hit Harbhajan on the head. He weaved away like Mohammad Ali in his prime and dropped his wrists. Good idea. :rotfl:

Something seems to have gone into Harbhajan's eye. He's getting some treatment for it. And now he's ready.
104.4
Steyn to Harbhajan Singh, SIX, 85.5 mph, Harbhajan has just played the shot of the match. Of the series. Of the South African summer. :rotfl: Length ball on middle and off, Harbhajan doesn't bother with trifles like foot work. He stays back and drills the bat down in one, smooth, devastating swing. And makes fearsome contact. And then he holds his pose. The ball sails easily over long on. Harbhajan has a wry smile on his face. Business as usual. He hardly strained a muscle and sent the world's top fast bowler packing over long on. On a day when he has bowled the spell of the series. :rotfl: This Test match continues to throw up some utterly unbelievable moments. It brought up 2000 runs for Harbhajan in Tests. Can't think of a more stylish way to bring up a milestone.



alz well TI will lose only :(( :((

Dilbullah, a few hazaar virgins await you (after a 100 years, one hopes and prays). :)

Where are the whiners? I thought SRT scored the century only for himself, eh? C'mon out and play! :P

Pranthan is on fire!

What a day of cricket. I suppose this one innings lays to rest the notion that sachin only plays for himself. I'd rank this among his most grittiest right along with the one in australia where he totally cut off the punch in the offside and grafted to score a ton. Loved every moment of it.

With the amount of crap boucher and others were dishing out to sreeshanth, they have the temerity to come out and cry about abuse and sledging. Bloody arselochs. I hope this fires up sreesanth and he breathes fire when he comes out to bowl and the entire slip cordon gets into the act while bowling. Pretty much shows where they lie on the 'we play hard cricket' balderdash. bullies and nothing more than that who talk big but cant take somebody who stands up to them.

Harshad: "Given the sledging Sreesanth is receiving, I hope Dhoni does not sell him down the river this time and say he needs to control his temper. He should do that in the dressing room but in public needs to support his bowler. The South Africans are no saints. Nobody obeys the so called 'line' anyways.. so Dhoni dont ever do that again to your bowler. The opposition are gonna gang up on him. "


Pranthan should be let loose with controlled emotions. Dhoni should support him openly.
pranthan received hostile reception by SA. MSD should take note of this.

What a match... 3 days almost gone and still its on the wire.

A lead of 2 is still a point that is made: we bested you. Lets hope we get a couple of quick wickets now.

I hope all the sledging results in a quick 4 or 5 wickets. Am, for the first time, betting on a few falling double quick.

If this turns out otherwise, it's back to anti-jinxing. hahaha.

Yeah god killed the demi-god and stole the show. :P But still could not manage a 300+. He just got what VVS could have added assuming the rest of the tail played the same supporting role.

Now the onus is put on the bowlers to do the job, so god can take the limelight. par for course. :rotfl:

Harbhajan Singh to Harris, OUT, 50.8 mph, Harbhajan strikes again! Quite a dramatic dismissal. It landed well outside off on the rough, a puff of dust came up, and turned in sharply. Harris went back and across and chose to pad up. The bat was lifted in the air and the ball turns in to hit the pad just outside off stump. It would have crashed into the stumps.

we need to keep SA under 250, else chasing will get more challenging. On a side note I am happy this test match will produce result. Now I hope its in our favor.

Pranthan lost out today. He could've had Smith a couple of times if the ball had done his bidding. *grin
I like the new-look Pranthan. A few more inches all around and a large mustache and we'll have our own Merv Hughes.

Bhajji is indeed the key. The pitch is now playing low -- a good sign for us. If it starts playing a little slower as well, we have a decent chance. SRT has done his job of bringing us on par. On this ground, we have earlier scored 411 and still lost. What matters is how soon the fockers are given a goodbye, and whether VVS will have his opportunity to shine in the 4th innings. We cannot chase a total above 250 on this ground. So Bhajji better spin them out for less than 200.

We want followers of all ilks to join together in this prayer session. Loosen your langots and pray with us (to your individual Gods). :mrgreen:

The real battle begins tomorrow. Hope Pranthan can injure another one of springboks.. and get them restricted to not more than 250.

What do you say Octopusuddin?

The praablem is one god (or the only one as per the rabid monos on this thread ;-) ) has already fired and is too tired considering his age. His firing again to complete the 300+ runs for the match is << 50% chance only now. So it will fall on the shoulders of VVS again I think :-) to rescue a win. A few other sleeping gods are in some stupor and sehwag has a shoulder problem.

All you monos, start with deep breathing tachniques of hatha yoga on a flying carpet and pray to Rama's brother onlee for a win. :mrgreen: Do not dilute by praying to the only god for win.

Gawd may not bowl cause he need to do the gawdly things again. btw, did anyone watch the way gambhir got out? That was so silly of him, that too he is one of the best player of spin. Must have suddenly got some GR Vishy thoughts.

Steyn will definitely try to harass again gawd as in first innings, VVS seems like a player who would need to be set in a situation that things are pathetic, and he must play to win or save the match. Perhaps he raises to gawd level no matter the need of the hour, but plainly make runs merrily.

And RD, I don't need to say.. if he hits his usual 40s, I am happy. Pujara is doing the same mistake as Raina chap did. They need to know test matches have a lot of capability that needs to be achieved by staying at the crease.

Time to swap bhajji and RD to bat ahead.

OT: heh, that is indeed a possibility. The emphasis being on artificial, naturally. :P j/k SaiK.

We had this AI bot at our board. It would arbitrarily question users and would invoke the ban scripts if it thought they were also AI. Good fun playing around with it until it banned two of the senior-most mods. After that, the games were wrapped up and a no-ban list was created. No more psych games.

Here's another for my fave bot: Is Saik (pronounced as) == psych? :rotfl:
