I'd hate to win because the side you were playing wasn't full strength, but then, thats the nature of sport
Vettori was just shaken up and as far as I've heard he should be fine, more so after a few days off.
Cairns is more of a concern. He has the quality to make or break a game and his injury could take him out. He could possibly rule himself fit to play though...
I'm hoping that the NZ side's youth and experience will hinder them and this will be compounded by the absence of Cairns. Hey, small hope, but its the only way I see a SA-Oz final...

ya both teams india and england tried their very hard to lose. India played more badly so they lost.
after all India needs run a ball with 7 wickets in hand, and they still manage to lose it.
England also tried they Drop all catches but still India is good in clinching defeats!!!
I sometimes wonder how india manages to lose when win is in the sights. They are grreat in this!!!
I am also looking for 6th game Lets see.... :roll:

I think Australia is the opposite. We tend to win the ones that look impossible (like the last one ), but in order to do so, we need to get into the impossible position in the first place.
The aim seems to be to do as badly as possible till it looks impossible then win, but we haven't quite got the timing right. If we wait too long then it becomes "impossible and then some" and we lose.
Difficult line to tread. :roll:

But one thing is sure that the win like the last one Aussies have erases the memory of many defeats.
And the loss like India have last week erases the memory of many wins.
Nail biting finishes always do something. The team which win the match finds so much confidence and the team which lost the match goes so down on confidence level.
Kiwis would be thinking that they reach so close to win still not that close.
I think this is ODI Cricket

JOKE ON CRICKET
The captain of a team says to the Umpire, "My players want to know if there is a penalty for thinking." The Umpire says, "No." The captain says, "Well we think you're an asshOle, then."

The captain made one big mistake, he said what his team mates thought
What will SA do without Jonty , heck he saved us from a collapase. Pollack decided to try his best to try and get the bonus point and whacked every ball that came his way. Man if only I could have seen it !!!

Rhodes Rules... but it was a team effort: here's to Pollock & Boucher and all the rest (cling-cling - champagne).

Yep it was a team effort. But Rhodes gave the team the base to work from, when they were in deep ...
Great score for Australia 283/7 (50 ov) in the final ODI.
Will SA manage to get the required 227 to deny Australia the vital bonuspoint.
You guys must be pretty peeved off with NZ, David. One point though, I wonder what Waugh would have done under similar circumstances.
Cant say I'm too happy that SA got the bonuspoint undeservedly.

Well SA stopped Oz from getting the bonus point. Cant say I appreciate this format. SA never even tried to go for the win.

The 'bonus point' rule added an extra facet to the strategy though. It was interesting watching a team that wanted to lose, but not by too much.
Contrast that with NZ in the previous match, who wanted to win by a lot or lose by a lot. Wierd.
Can't say I'm too disappointed with Oz not making it into the finals, they didn't really desrve it. We played well recently, but were dismal at the start and I still haven't forgiven them
Notice that almost every time we've played it's come down to the last guy out there to save the match?

But occasionally you're allowed to have one guy at the top of the order do really well but run out of partners. It doesn't always have to be the last batsman on the list.

Unfortunately the weather the weather may be a factor - wet in Sydney it seems

I'm looking forward to the start, only hours to go!
It's going to be interesting without Australia in it, but I'm still looking forward to some play from good teams.
but only if it stops raining in Sydney!

No, that would be croquet.
Nice try though.
For the record, NZ all out for 190 in 47.5
SA currently 1/51 after 13.1

Really not good.
They're forecasting Rain periods and the chance of a thunderstorm. Mild humid and mostly cloudy. Light winds tending moderate northeasterly during the afternoon for today and Showers and thunderstorms, more frequent during the afternoon and evening. Mild, humid day with cloudy periods. Light to moderate north to northeast winds tomorrow...
(I'm on the opposite coast so I'm not real sure)

Yep the last I saw NZ were 120/2. Never did I dream that when I got home, could not follow it , that SA would have won that easy.
I'm not complaining that SA won but one-sided games aint fun.
