The funniest comment over that totally amazing day must be that from Mark Taylor. Apparently with SA
in innings 1 at about 49/1 he went to bed and sleep.
A short time later, he got a phone message that indicated Aus were 15/quite a few. He assumed his phone had gone bust and staggered to his TV
and switched on to find (I think) it was 21/9. By then, sort of awake, his first thought was he must have missed a day.
That about summed it up. Missed a day.
I was not far different to Tubs. I heard SA
49/1 and switched the radio on again to find an interval and unclear references to Amla and Kallis going suddenly, at which point Steyn bowled to Watson. (Steyn to Watson thinks I, who is playing for whom???). Dot, Four out. I had nearly worked out what was happening by the time Ponting trotted back to join Watson and by then I had the SA
scoreboard up on Crincinfo.
At times Cricinfo was two wickets behind the play. Never known that before either!
