Match Notes

  • 'Every ball was really felt'

    When South Africa set Australia 117 to win in Sydney in 1994, few gave the visitors a chance. They won by five runs

  • Donald bowls Border

    de Villiers was on fire; then White Lightning came to the party

  • Saving Grace

    Everything's peachy when Damien Martyn is finessing his square-cuts to the fence, but things weren't always so rosy
