Day 2, 3rd test, Australia vs South Africa

I had a lot of fun yesterday --- I went to day 2 of the 3rd Australia vs South Africatest at the SCG. I went with a bunch of friends who work for Honeywell (a link via a school-friend), and my mate R who flew in for the New Years Eve fireworks was able to join us too. Since he works in the same building as BMCI figure when R gets home they'll be able to watch some of BMC's cricket dvds. Building on the knowledge that Nathan enlightened me with on NYE, I played a bit with my camera :-) Here are some of the pictures I took: Before play started for the day: At lunch, the Milo kiddies cricket teams came and played: The second ball after lunch: South Africa declared at 9/451: For some reason, when Andre Nel came on, the crowd booed him. I noticed that when he'd finished his over and came to start fielding near us, he waited until it was clear the ball wasn't coming near him and then hurried to sign about 20 autographs --- seems like a good sport to me! We were all really happy to see Ricky Ponting score his 8000th test run. He's only the 3rd Australian to get to that total: The scoreboard lit up: All-in-all, a really nice day. Pity South Africa scored so slowly all day, and Australia lost 3 quick wickets in the last 45 minutes of play ...... Ah well, that's the way things go! There's more info on current matches at CricInfo.
