A Day To Remember For All Cricket Fans

with one comment

12th March 2006 has become a big day in Cricket history. It was the fifth one-day match between South Africa and Australia played at Johannesburg, South Africa.
Australia won the toss and chose to bat first. Here comes the first record of the day, Australia breaks the past record of 398-5 (50 overs-Sri Lanka v Kenya) by making a mind-blowing total of 434-4 in 50 overs. Ricky pointing made a great score of 164 from 105 balls with 9 sixes and 13 fours.

Australia’s innings was really great and it made the world record of having the highest total. Next its South Africa’s turn to chase that total. 434 in 50 overs ? The run rate is 8.67 per over, what would you do if you were to score so much ? 🙂

Well, South Africa played awesome cricket and won the match scoring 438-9 in 49.5 overs. Now that makes the record of chasing the highest total ever and also setting the new highest total of 438 in Cricket History.


To say the truth, I dint even care to watch the match after I heard that Australia had set the highest total of 434, coz I thought South Africa would never make it. But now I’m feeling bad that I really missed the best cricket match ever.

Gibbs was the man behind South Africa’s victory. He made a whopping 175 in 111 balls with 7 sixes and 21 fours and was awarded the man of the match.


Myself being a great fan of cricket, I’m sure I’ll never forget this day in my life. Thats an awesome historic win by South Africa, Hats Off to them!! 🙂
