Test Cricket: Australia vs South Africa, WACA

Unfortunately, South Africa has just won the 1st cricket test in the 3 match 2008/9 series versus Australia by scoring the 2nd highest ever winning 4th innings total.

 

I wasn’t at the game today but I took the following photos from the 4th day’s play yesterday at the WACA Ground, Perth.

The highlight of yesterday’s play was Haddin hitting 2 sixes and 1 four in consecutive deliveries off spinner Harris. He was out stumped in the same over for 94 runs when attempting to bring up his century with another 6.

 

The second best highlight would have to have been the remote control cars brought onto the oval at the tea interval. Their jumps and speeding around were great fun to watch.

With 8 wickets in the 1st innings, Mitch Johnson was popular with the autograph seekers in between deliveries
