I'm at home in Perth listening to it at the moment and can't believe it either. Australia should have won at least one of the previous two matches, but as the commentators often say, it's a funny game.

If the Australians can clean up the South Africans for only a few more runs there's a chance, because Watson, Warner, Clarke and Hussey are all capable of centuries, but it would be a record last innings run chase. Still, records are all made to be broken.

It will have to be an amazing last innings, 632 is a pretty massive lead. I guess it will have to be a very defensive strategy. There's plenty of time to go, so no sense in taking risks. Still, I think SA have this one pretty much in the bag.

Usually in a case like this there is such a thing called a sporting declaration made to give the your opponents a chance. That's where the saying it's just not cricket is it comes from.
