The current ODI series between England and The Proteas will as you can see decide who tops the ICC rankings come Sept 5th.
Match 2 (of the 5 match series) a day / nighter starts at 12.00 GMT Tuesday 28th August, would you believe that the 1st game on Friday was washed out? With a 4 day break between matches why not have a reserve day? (or 2?) It’s time that the ‘men in suits’ who run the sport get with the programme!
But there’s more at stake then simply topping the ODI rankings for The Proteas.
That’s right folks, when The Proteas win the current ODI series against England (and that’s going to take some effort now that the series has effectively been reduced to just 4 matches) The Proteas will be the official number one ranked team in all three forms of the game. Respect.
