Morkel and Boucher made match one sided during power play by playing super shot against Australian Bowlers. It was 3rd match of the series and Australia could win one match out of 3 matches. It is new record of chasing runs on Sydney Test Cricket Ground.
Australia made 269 runs in 49.2 overs while its openers David and Shan Marsh provided good stand to their team and David scored 69 runs while Shan Marsh made 43 runs. Bred Hayden made 36 and Hopes could make 33 runs against South Africa. It is 2nd time when Morkel and Boucher fully utilized power play and made runs in the same way as they made in 1st match against Australia. South Africa started that power play in 41st over and made 41 runs on 30 balls at the loss of one wicket when 21 balls were remaining from ending the match.
Gibbs made 64 runs on 52 balls while he competed his fifty in just 36 balls. He fully utilized the advantage he got in first over when his catch was dropped by David Hussy on the ball of Shan Tait. While Australian Captain Ricky Ponting also dropped the easy catch of Hashim Amla. Jacque Kallis made 60 runs on 72 balls and he completed his 10,000 runs in one-day international cricket.
Australian openers David and Shaun Marsh provided good opening stand to their team but team could not extend its innings in that way as provided by the openers. Sydney is the home ground of David warner and he does not disappoint the viewers by his performance. In this match both Ntini and Dyle Styne took 3 wickets each.
South African Team is 부평역 안마 in very good form as they recently won the test series against Australia and now there are chances that they would beat Australia in one-day series as well. In next month Australia have to go to South Africa and if could not win the current one day series against South Africa then Australian Cricket Board can put pressure on Captain Ricky Ponting to resign from captaincy as when last time Australia went on South African tour then Australian Team lost the series despite the fact that they played well.
If now South Africa wins one-day series against South Africa then it will become number one cricket team of the world while Australian will come on 2nd ranking. I think South Africa has ability to beat Australia as now Australia is not as powerful team as it was when Adam Gilchrist, G.Macgrath, Mathew Hyden and Shane warn were in their team. Andrew Symonds is also not playing in Australian Cricket Team and in spite of this fact that Australia does not have the above player in its team so even then we can say that it is still one of the best cricket team of the world and can come back any time.
