187 runs to win, 7 wickets left – could there be a better close to the 1st test? Chris Adams reckons Australia are in the driving seats deciding they are 60/40 favourites!!!
The target of 414 if reached will eclipse the 387 India reached set by England a few days ago. It will be the second highest successful run chase in the 4th innings with only West Indies chasing down a higher total.
Strangely enough this was against Australia – it seems that Australia has many of these records set against them , with South Africa successfully chasing down the 434 set by Australia in the one day arena.
With just a few hours to go, I cant wait to see South Africa successfully chase down a mammoth total – a total that is at least 100 runs too high
