Are we going to throw it away again?...

South Africa take a 2-1 lead into the fourth one-dayer in Durban tomorrow and need one win from the two remaining games to take the series.
“These next two games are going to be like finals for both teams, it’s do or die,” Boucher said.

So reports the Natal Witness (

What is about teams in this country. We have developed a nasty habit of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. I just hope that in this "do or die" affair we at least emerge with our reputations intact. We need a serious contribution from Graeme Smith to prove that he is really back. I just wonder what we would be feeling now if he had been given out on 16 at Centurion. The replays clearly indicated that he was pretty plumb! Would the media and public have lynched him by now. I think he's done a pretty good job and I'd rather have a beer with him than I would have with Hansie. Win in Durban and prove that we have what it takes.
