Some news on Cricket

Third Test match between West Indies and South Africa:
Third day of the test match was over yesterday. South Africa had finished their first innings scoring 346 runs loosing all 10 wickets. They had given a lead of 115 runs to the hosts. West Indies began their second batting innings. They had to recover the lead & have to put some huge score on board either to win the match or make it a draw. Again top order batsmen failed to hit big scores for the team as they all fell soon. Only Shivnarine Chanderpaul survived & played some beautiful knocks scoring a half century. West Indies at the end of the day they had lost 7 wickets & had scored just 134 runs in total. Now WI are leading South Africans by just 19 runs which is a very critical situation for the hosts. They have to build some good and great partnerships for the remaining 3 wickets to keep their hopes alive. Right now South Africans are looking strong to win the match easily. Lets wait & watch what happens.

England vs Australia series:
England have already whitewashed Australians in the series by taking the lead of 3-0. England have already won the series as they have won all 3 matches. Next two remaining matches will be played for pride & glory. Australians seem to be very unhappy about their performance against the England. Australia have lost the series after winning 8 series in the row. Now England has dominated the Australians very easily & are looking very high. Australian captain Ricky Ponting has said that the remaining 2 matches which will be played is for pride which is the number one priority for them now.
