So Amla makes 119 for 0 off 126 balls. The rest of the batsmen get 96 for 9 off 174.

Is there a more improved player in any sport? The only one I can think of is Lee Westwood perhaps but he started well then fell apart so this is a second coming (besides the obvious of Zamora of course)

More than 4 times the score of any other player!

Great end. I saw comments on cricinfo that this is why ODI's are great, but the only reason the end was so good was the 45 overs of turgid cricket that preceded it.

I didn't think SA had enough runs again but Pakistan took way too long. Shows again how good Amla's innings was. Apart from him though, everyone played their part in getting Pakistan as close as possible. The batsmen were poor, even Tsotsobe threw in a poor over at the death (though overall he was awesome). And then Amla went and dropped one. Theron held his nerve in the end after losing it a bit, but I'm not sure it was a good idea for Botha to have him bowl the last overs, giving his limited experience.

Amla is a run scoring machine atm. I saw some highlights of his innings from the 2nd ODI, the hand eye coordination and bat speed he has is incredible, he doesn't need to slog it to score quick. Hammering the minnows in this form of the game has only helped his confidence and now looks he can reproduce it against better sides.

Amla's stamina is also superb.

These teams appear evenly matched and are staging some close games. Tsotsobe's form is a big plus for SA.

Decent partnership from Smith and AB earlier, but didn't kick on having reached 150 after 30. Should have made 300+ from there. Pakistan well placed to chase it down at 90/2 after 15.... apart from being Pakistan that is.

Pakistan win, despite nearly ****ing it up and helped by the crucial drop by Smith.

Agree, was watching the middle part of the innings last night and AB and JP wasted too many balls, especially against the spinners.

Pakistan was fairly measured with its batting but probably helped by some rubbish from Steyn and Parnell. Odd decision with their most consistent bowler Tsostobe's injury to put in two rusty guys. Smith's drop probably cost them the match though. SA's fielding is very poor atm.

As you know they play three tests. With Theron available though, you'd think they might play him and ease Steyn in. Had they clinched the series they could have then played Parnell and Steyn in the last. You'd imagine they'd be trying to win the one dayers and the tests.

And now you know. And you should know there's only one odi left. Unlike you, the selectors would have factored in the likelihood of 10 overs not being enough of a warmup for the star bowler, the importance of the tests, and the state of the odi series.

It'd be nice to give Theron another run, but he's merely part of the squad and there are more important players.
