I, or rather Cricinfo, should have posted this yesterday:
At 11:11 on 11/11/2011, the Proteas needed 111 runs to win. The Newlands faithful were instructed to stand on one leg for one minute. For those who had already indulged in a couple of beers, this proved challenging! I can't decide if watching grown men hop about is as funny as seeing all those 1s on the scoreboard is spooky. Either way, nothing out-of-the-ordinary today could compete with 21 for 9 - just ask the Aussies.
The South African cricket team is superb. They've got the best bowler on Earth at the moment. Their batting line up is immense with an all-time great like Kallis. Yet, they just can't seem to win in larger tournaments.
They have one of the best win-loss ratios in cricket but they've never won the world cup. They've never even made it to the finals! They've got to bury the "c" word.
