March 25th 2007 : Quiztion of the Day - 13

Matthew Hayden's fastest hundred in World Cup eclipsing Canada's John Davison's 67 ball effort against West Indies in 2003 World Cup is main highlight of Australia and South Africa encounter. Ricky Ponting while making 91 crossed the 10000 run milestone in ODI cricket. With his two sixes he again became the sole record holder of hitting most sixes (27) in World Cup matches.

In reply to Australia's mammoth total of 377 for 6, South Africa was very well ahead on required run rate with both Graeme Smith and AB de Villiers firing on all cylinders and reminding everyone about the last encounter between these two nations. But a spectacular direct hit by Shane Watson from the long leg boundary with only one stump to aim at to get rid of the dangerous looking AB de Villiers has altered South Africa's course.

I believe that throw alone might become the defining moment and will have a huge influence on who is going to the win this World Cup. After that when Graeme Smith got retired hurt with sever cramps and Herschelle Gibbs was stumped for 17, South Africa's chances of successive successful chase of 375 plus total against Australia was never on the cards.
