A typical England-SA limited overs game

South Africa fucked up big time in a run chase. It's not the tournament, their chasing skills are on a hiatus.

Kevin Pietersen killed. Rainbow colours make him angry.

Buffalo played a part in KP's dismissal.

The Poms stole the magic potion that gives Saffers their fielding power and shoved the empty bottles down their throats.

Morne got a wicket off a no ball. Morne then proceeded to produce some more no-balls.

Barbie misbehaved with the umpire (I never get tired of this).

A Saffa took a fabulous catch and the commentators couldn't stop talking about him.

A Saffa dropped an easy catch.

Eoin Morgan made the Saffers suffer.

South Africa humuliated themselves and made a few non-bowlers look like bowlers in the process.

A Pom took extra pleasure in calling Buffalo a losing captain twice and Colly the winning captain.

South Africa's fate now partially depends on some other team.

English fans are scared that the team is doing too well and Saffa fans are pissed that their team is on the brink of yet another exit from a ICC tournament.

So Duminy's running wasn't worthy enough to get a bullet point? :p

And FYI when we saw Boucher on the laptop, he wasn't twittering. He was trying to beat Barbie's top score in Pinball (it was a side bet involving food and pillows).

Didn't see much of South Africa's batting, but they seemed to be doing a good rabbit-in-headlights impersonation in the first few overs of England's innings.

Still picking them to be too good for Pakistan, but whether it'll come down to NRR is anyone's guess.

I'll be interested to see England without KP against NZ. Even though they are virtually through to the semis, one has to remember that South Africa was in a similar position in 2007. One loss to India derailed them.

So Poms, beware of the Kiwis!

Anon, labour work doesn't get you anywhere. Refer to today's game for proof.
And Barbie is too delicate to play Pinball.

Well the Poms are through and now the Kiwis need to go as well.
