Proteas beat Australia in the first ODI

After the disappointing Twenty/20 games, where SA lost 2-0, this triumph was bitter sweet.

Unfortunately for my, I give up too soon. After the first two wickets fell, I stopped watching. Only to be shamefully disappointed that I missed a cracker of a game. I am such a clutz.

Reports have stated that it was a thrilling win. I will have to catch the highlights. With Duminy hitting a brilliant 71 with not one boundary. A steady 63 from McKenzie. But a brillian lightning spell from Morkel of 40 not out in just 18 balls sealed the game.

South Africa won by three wickets. It could have been better had SA played a bit better on the field. The South Africans were uncharacteristically lax in the field today, but enough was done to take the the win.

Being 1-0 up on the series is always a good start. Do you think we can go on to take it? Do you think that not having Smith there will eventually take its toll? DO we have the courage to do this? Wouldn’t it be great to not only take the test series but the ODIs as well, and in Aus as well.

Let us know what you think.
