    Ok, I'm about as patriotic as it gets when it comes to supporting SA sport teams, no matter what they playing.
    But I'm getting just a little bit tired of our National cricket Teams inability to win crucial matches.
    Again we were one of the favourites to at least make the Semi's of the 20/20 world cup, and again when it counted we choked.

    I do think the format sucks. How is it that the team that we beat in the Super 8 goes through ? They have a better net run rate, but we beat them. Surely in a competition to see whos best would mean that if we've beaten them then we are better than them ?
    Anyway, the rules are clear, so we have to accept that (This seems to be coming up a lot lately)

    At the end of the day we didn't have big enough bells. I'm sick of them losing when it counts :(

    Yea the whole cricketing world say the same thing only problem is our cricket team is run by the polotitions and the only thing they good at is lining their own pockets with stolen money from the public so no suprise. I think our coach, captain and players that are put in because they can play cricket did a good job in carrying those in the team for other reasons.
