Smith’s team stuns the Aussies

Ricky Poning and his men were found wanting in a match that would be remembered for the spectacular batting display by the South Africans. It was rather amazing to watch Grame Smith relax while his team was racing towards a record chase at Perth without much difficulty. A fabulous win this was for the visitors who chased 414 runs quite comfortably leaving the hosts in dismay. Smith’s century provided the much needed start and his partnership with Hashim Amla proved vital. Then on the momentum was carried by DeVilliers who, along with debutant Duminy, guided his team to a record win against Aussie.

Beating the Aussies in their backyard isn’t that easy. But Smith’s team showed it isn’t that difficult too. The Aussie glory is slowly fading away as is their dominance in world cricket.

Personally, I’m loving the Aussie defeat not that I hate them but because the champion team has been outplayed.

This was simply a fabulous win. I think the newcomers in the team have more steel than the chokers of old. Players like AB De villiers, Duminy do not have the demons of the past and play with a calm and cool head. Kudos to SA. I hope they win the Boxing day test at MCG and sink the Aussies.

Yes. They have won the series thrashing the kangaroos 2-0. Spectacular and tremendous victory this is for them. Ponting and his men have a lot to ponder now.
