I don't think we are the 2nd best team in the world. Though I think at this very time, this ODI side could beat anybody, barring maybe Sri Lanka with their spin twins!

I really doubt you'd beat Australia or New Zealand either, but if that's what you think then congratulations. The rankings are interesting, but rarely do they give a fair indication of which teams are ranked where. Teams have bad periods and good periods. But anyway, with all this 2nd in the world talk, England still haven't won the last game yet. I wouldn't be so sure of it. South Africa now have nothing to lose really. I just hope they treat it as though it matters, they don't seem to care much at present.

especially since they came off a drubbing against New Zealand, who we slaughtred back home only a few moths ago.

Do you have a bad memory? You won that ODI series 2-1. It was far from a slaughter. lus it wasn't a few months ago, it was last year! About 7-8 months ago.

The first ODI you won off the last ball in the match. Slaughtering? Hillarious.
The second we won. We got slaughtered there as well. In fact we bowled you out for 209 and chased it in 35 overs. :/
The third was chased down with 4 overs to spare and 5 wickets down and on the day Gibbs was just on fire, well done, that's no where near the margins England put on you.

Speaking of slaughter, we slaughtered you in the World Cup.

Do you get extra points because we are beating a side that is second place in the odi rankings?

Not going to get a full game, according to BBC, heavy showers set for Cardiff this afternoon. Hope there's still time for a game of such, and England wrap the series.

So there's a 40% chance it won't rain. Sounds like sucky odds, but if someone offered you a 40% chance to win the lottery you'd tear their arm off ;)

The opening comment on the cricinfo scorecard made me chuckle :)

Another Inspection at 2.45pm just to give the groundstaff a bit more chance to get the outfield dry, wet in places.

If no rain before 2.45, they are looking at a 3.15 start and a 50 over game.

Am I the only one who is watching this discussion about the stanford?

I'm quite excited by some of the prospects...when they read out the middle order of such of Shah, Pietersen, Flintoff and Collingwood I have to say I got pretty excited!

This stanford thing is going to be quite intresting? Maybe we could open up the thread now if it isnt already there?

Gibbs gone already. Stuart Broad with some great bowling again. Another cracking catch from Matty Prior as well, he's been awesome with the gloves in this series. Get him in the Test side.

Bloody rain.

They should just give England the victory tbh. We got a wicket, that should count for enough. South Africa should declare and let us get the 7 runs to win. :p
