Oh no.

Australia 434 for 4 lost to South Africa 438 for 9.

Having not followed the game last night, I awoke with horror at the scoreline on the 7am news on the radio. As Tourism Australia would say, "bloody hell".

The hyperbole has already started, but I'd like to sit back and think about the long-term ramifications for the sport that this debacle has triggered. Do we accept this day-long home-run derby as the future of the sport, or is it time to alter the rules to give bowlers decent career incentives once more?

Congratulations to South Africa on deservedly winning the five-match ODI series. But I do feel for Mick Lewis.
