World Cup 2000 - Match Reports

Round Robin (Qualifying) Rounds

Round 2
Women - South Africa vs Australia

South Africa score the first major upset of the tournament, defeating the previously unbeaten Australians. The significance of this win to South Africa cannot be understated - the Australian women were the hottest favourites to continue their undefeated run and take out the Cup yet again. There are some interesting comments filtering across the ocean about particular aspects of this development. ICW would simply like to congratulate South Africa on doing what some considered impossible - we'll have a good listen to the mumblings a bit later on :-) The next thing is to see just how the Australian women react to this - will it be a "good thing" for them or not? Time will, as usual, tell all.

South Africa 115 def Australia 98.

Note - Indoor Cricket World would like to apologise to all our readers. Despite our best efforts, we have so far been unable to provide results of every game as they happened (although we are managing some). We have also not been able to provide as comprehensive match reports as promised. We hope the difficulties which have prevented us from doing this will soon be overcome. In the meantime we will provide what we can, as soon as is physically possible. Thanks to the supporting emails we have received ... we are doing our very best.
