South Africa were looking all but out of the game after, Australia thumped 344 off its 50 overs in the VB series game in Sydney.

Adam Gilchrist lead the way with 88, Damien Martyn hit 79 run out off the last ball of the innings, Ponting hit 72, while ‘mister cricket’ Michael Hussey hit 47 not out.

Batting under the lights, Graeme Smith went cheaply again, caught behind off the leg side off Brett Lee, with Adam Gilchrist pulling off an absolute stunner.

At the time of this post South Africa were 40/1 off 9 overs, well below the required run rate.

It looks like the fight for the second position will be decided in Hobart on Tuesday, when Sri Lanka meet with South Africa.
