Nothing, welll almost nothing, can beat a really good five-day test match but how often do we see that?
The 50-over game is i.m.h.o. the best thing ever to have happened to cricket. It has become dynamic and thrilling. Who will ever forget the game between S.Africa and W.Indies at Newlands in 2003? R.S.A. lost by just 3 runs but what a match. What a final over!
Cricket boring! Never. That was nail-biting stuff. I still can't believe my luck in that I was sent to Cape Town just in time to see the match. I was then sent to Port Elizabeth (taking my time driving the Garden Route) in time to see the Kiwis beat W.Indies at St. George's Park a few days later. Fantastic, and everything but the match tickets paid for by the EU. Sometimes work has its positive moments
