How Johnson How?

It didn't surprise me that South Africa lost 5 wickets for 7 runs in 7 overs.

They're playing the Aussies, it was bound to happen.

Living up to the billing now Damith?

It didn't surprise me that Smith & Co. collapsed from 234-3 to 241-8.

They're South Africans, that's what they do.

It didn't surprise me that a debutant and the tail didn't survive for long against the Aussies.

But it sure as hell surprised me that those 5 wickets went to Mitchell Johnson!


A 7-for?

I thought only Krejza was capable of stuff like that.

How can a boy who hops and skips like a limping kangaroo towards the crease and turns his arm over as if he's about to throw a javelin pick up 7 wickets in an innings including 5 in 4 overs!?


Only if the opposition is South African I guess.

Whats more annoying is that I didn't have him in my fantasy team!

    I'm in shock! I said he wouldn't make the top 5 fast bowlers in the world right now and we all know how bare that cupboard is. Its horrible, the Aussies might actually have a half decent bowler now. On the bright side, he was in my fantasy cricket team.

    Africans are biggest chokers...No wonder if they hv Hansie @ helm or Pollock or Smith, they wont budge....

    They aint a match for Aussies....5-0 or 6-0 is still a possibility

    Whoopdy doo, I had him in the fantasy team. Told ya this boys got something in him.

    Certainly living up to the billing now Q :)

    Its interesting to note however that General Lee seems to be on leave at the moment, so all the more important that Michelle J showed up.
