We've used the world "sensational" a few times of late . . . well, we're going to use it again, and again, it's exactly the right word.

Anyone who ever doubted the spectator appeal of our sport would have limped away with their tail between their legs days ago. And again tonight. The young men of the tournament turned on another magnificent display, with South Africa coming up trumps in the end . . . but not before staring defeat in the eye--with 3 balls remaining, New Zealand were just 3 runs from victory.

Consecutive wickets in the last over (both bowled), and South Africa had the game and a ticket into the Grand Final. Both teams deserve huge credit for the game, and for the credibilty they and the Australian Boys have given the division at the International level.

More later.
