On Saturday though was the massive game.If SA beat India it would ease the pressure. But as the game started it wa spure Carnage. Tendulker and Sehwag or a lucky Sehwag after being dropped by van Wyk and the non referal by South Africa these two embarked on pure Carnage.

Indian Fans were up for it

At one stage it was looking like 380 plus for India. With their line up and 262 for two we braced ourselves.

Later on I met Moe Cassim and we got Interviewed by Etv News. They just asked ask who we supporting and Who would win the World Cup. I took the crew to Fordsburg Square and we created with the India Fans. They gave the crew Goolab Jamboos and achaar etc. Fordsburg square had the Big Screen and the atmosphere was special.More so that India and now Ghambir were pounding us.

As we watched India all of a sudden shifted advantage to South Africa with a tremendous Dale Steyn Spell. India were 26o odd for two and 290 all out. Amazing. Thats the World Cup for you. More so it was great fight by South Africa. It was tough but gettabale. If Hash and Smith gave usa good start it was game on.

Hash makes us proud

When SA Started off well and Hash was in rythym we were in for a fight.It was fantastic to see Hash reach 50.It was big. The boy is special. After Smith fell again to Zahier Khan.Hash and Kallis led the way. When Baajie got Hash AB stepped in and he came big. A Typical AB de Villiers innings. I keep remembering the words Hash told me about AB, that hes bever seen such a naturally gifted athlete. AB and Duminy accelerated after Kallis went. Then Duminy was stumped. He had to stick around. Thats when I thought oh well here we go again. But FAF what a booitjie. He stuck around did what he had to do. Van Wyk had a bad day and tried a foolish shot. What was he thinking trying to sweep. In came Botha and did what he was asked. A crucial six of Baajie and we were close. Tremendous tension. In stepped Robbie Peterson and he went for it. Ive been a big critic of his exclusion but hes come big this tournament. Lofty hitting when we needed it. I wondered why Doni bowled Nehra and not Baajie. But we dont care. We didnt CHOKE and We won the game. Tremendous and huge mentally. I messaged Doc Moose. He sad the lads and the moral was fantastic in the dressing room. Now they just have to carry the momentum. If we beat Ireland we are definately through. Lets see what happens tomorrow
