Who says cricket is boring…

The Manguang Oval in the capital of the Free State, Bloemfontein, hosted the first of the South Africa v England One Day International Cricket matches.  It was a day/night match which produced a high scoring spectacular which was unfortunately ended early by a huge thunderstorm.  Most importantly England won, scoring 399-9, their second highest score ever before the rain ended the South African innings when they had scored 250-5 after 33 overs!

England won the toss in the first ODI in Bloemfontein between South Africa & England.  England scored 399-9 from their 50 overs.
