Today we witnessed probably THE most historic one day international cricket match ever to have taken place, between South Africa and Australia! What a game. “Incredible” as Graeme Smith put it. I can’t put it much better.
Not wanting the moment to end, I surfed the internet (after a few celebratory brewskis of course!) looking for a few sport’s reports on today’s great game. I found quite a few, News24, Sky News, ABC Sports and SportsAustralia.com, were all praising South Africa’s performance. I then stumbled upon a related article on Fox Sports, Australia, that grabbed my attention. “Warne labels Smith a fool”. I thought this might be an interesting read, and oh was it.
Apparently a few hours before the game Warne had a little go at Smith:
SHANE Warne has lit the fuse for an explosive Test series by branding South Africa’s Graeme Smith a tactically inept “fool” who is directly responsible for the decline of some of his own players.
The flamboyant leg spinner risked possible action under the International Cricket Council’s code of conduct by taking verbal warfare with the Proteas skipper to new heights.
Unfortunately for Warne, this all came before Smith’s men pulled off a remarkable world-record victory in the final limited-overs game to clinch the series against Australia 3-2.
Haha sucks fool! Ok wait the funny bit is still to come:
“Smith didn’t make runs (in Australia) and there’s no South African team that has performed that badly ever.
“He was the captain, so he’s got to take responsibility for that.”
“But he just keeps making these outrageous, ridiculous statements that he doesn’t back up. He’ll probably end up with egg on his face again.
“If he has learnt any lessons out of Australia, and hopefully he hasn’t, he might be better off just being quiet and trying to play.”
I bet someone wished he had kept quiet now!! Woohaha!! What a great tingling feeling I have inside right about now.
