    WOW!

    That will take some beating.

    Windies bowling full tosses helped but still sheesh.

    SA were 0/101 after 20

    scored 338 of the next 30, 163 off the last 10

    I watch very little cricket nowadays but when this bloke batted against the Aussies in the last couple of years it seemed he was on a different level. Even when Johnson was running amok. He must be one of the best ever.

    the best 2 batsman in the world right now have both spent a fair chunk of their time as keepers in AB and Sangakara.

    AB is only 30 and about to crack 100 test at an average of 52, if this purple patch lasts a few more years he will go well past the 10 thousand runs mark as well.

    The guy is a freak. My favourite non Aussie player. Just a natural sportsman. I believe he was the first test player to take a catch (both as keeper and in field), make a stumping, take a wicket and score a century in a career.

    His fielding is amazing, takes some absolute screamers, none better than this one



    That ground he got the runs on the other day has seen some records. I remember watching the game where the Saffers chased down our 400+ score and Herschelle went to town. Amazing game.

    I believe we will face either the Saffers or NZ in the WC final - and it really is only AB or McCullum that can stop an Aussie victory. Both are in freakish form at the moment too

    Well he has blown this previous game out of the water, 12 balls to go from 100 to 150

    SA were less than 150 after 30 overs, scored 260 off the last 20, 80 off the last 3.2
