England out of the 2007 Cricket World cup.

South Africa's Captain Graeme Smith plays a shot while the England wicket keeper looks on!

The shameful exit of England from the world cup shocked my close friend, he had bn following the game and was grossly disappointed when England lost to South Africa. I watch Cricket,understand some of it but not all of it.Lol. Have been to a couple of games in CapeTown, South Africa, but still dont fully understand the game. Too complicated for me. 1 minute i think i understand,next it gets confusing. I understand how the points are awarded but dont fully grasp the overs and how many wickets a team needs to win....U see South Africa needs 256-4 or Bangladesh needs 10 overs to win and i'm like what?
South Africa outclassed England to take their place in the World Cup semi-finals after a nine-wicket victory in their Super Eights game on Tuesday at the Kensington Oval.

The defeat ended England's hopes of making the last four and the South Africans now join Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka in the semi-finals.

England, who were booed off the field by their large travelling support, now have a meaningless final match of the tournament against hosts West Indies on Saturday,21st April, 2007 in Barbados with both teams now eliminated from the competition.

England Captain Michael Vaughan disappointed.

He said they deserved to be booed off after a crushing nine-wicket defeat by South Africa knocked them out of the World Cup on Tuesday,17th April,2007.

My Favorite South African Cricket players are Makhaya Ntini(My favorite, always sending batsmen out wt his superb bowling speed and skills), Shaun Pollock(i like calling him Bollocks,lol),Graeme Smith,hot looking guys. Especially when Smith and Pollock have their sun glasses on.....ooooohh hotter! Lol.
