Mar 24 – First Semi Final Run Chase in Tweets

In case you missed the Kiwis chasing down SA’s total in the First Semi-Final, here it is, blow by blow, curtesy of a slightly random selection of tweets on the subject.

@17thManDiary: SA girding themselves for Journey to the Centre of the Earth at Eden Park.

AB says he had never sheared a shup before #CWC15

@bhogleharsha: How many overs does McCullum think he has?

@ajarrodkimber: Mid off almost broke his neck just trying to watch that go to the rope.

@17thManDiary: The grape growers in the stands are stamping their feet and getting restless. Vettori is padding up in the shadows #SAvNZ

@17thManDiary: We just need rain for a week to close it all down and save England #SavNZ

@17thManDiary: Any decent NZ partnership rings the emergency bell for SA. How long will the fire engine take to arrive? #SAvNZ

@17thManDiary Mar 24: This game like, you know like, hey, you know… like where’s it going? #SAvNZ

@17thManDiary: NZ batting is aggressive erratic and unpredictable. They should be arrested for being a public nuisance #NZvSA

@17thManDiary: Who had blinked first in this game. I reckon SA is blinking like mad trying to hold back the tears… NOT AGAIN! #NZvSA

@M4NIII:

AB THE BATSMAN.

AB THE BOWLER.

AB THE KEEPER.

AB THE FIELDER.

AB THE CAPTAIN.

AB THE LEGEND.

GIVE HIM THE CUP ALREADY. DAMN IT!!

#NZvsSA

@17thManDiary: The next World Cup should be in SA/ZIM so they can play on their own wickets every match #NZvSA

@17thManDiary Mar 24: Duckworth Lewis always bats second. #NZvSA

@fwildecricket: Fun Fact: Grant Elliott was born in South Africa. #CWC15 #NZvSA #NZ #SA

@17thManDiary: I wish I culd trenzlate whet they’re saying in the muddle bro’ bet I can’t spuk New Zulend #NZvSA

@17thManDiary: Pressure building. Will someone drop the World Cup? #cwc15 #nzvsa

@_TheTonk: NZ need 47 runs from 36 balls, South Africa six wickets. It’s squeaky bum time at Eden Park.

@thefulltoss: If it hit the wire it’s an even better catch! #CWC15

@17thManDiary: I’m trying to get my wife to loosen the tie round my neck but everyone is choking here #masschoking #NZvSA

@AltCricket: If SpiderCam had cost South Africa a wicket, they might as well have just given up playing cricket forever. #NZvSA

@DennisCricket_: Spider Cam just can’t get himself into the match. #nzvsa

@17thManDiary: Will it be Ronchi and Roll? #cwc15 #nzvsa

@17thManDiary: Ronchi misses spider cam cable and is out. #cwc15 #nzvsa

@17thManDiary : De kock up there #cwc15 #nzvsa

@AllOutCricket: “You’ve just tackled the World Cup, mate.” #CWC15

@17thManDiary: The Hamstring has the final say. #cwc15 #nzvsa

@17thManDiary: They shouldn’t let games get to this point. Medicare claims rise #NZvSA

@simmiareff: Grant Elliott is the first South African to go to a cricket world cup final

@17thManDiary: The 3 commandments

1. Don’t bowl Steyn at the death

2. Catch the ball before removing the bails

3. Don’t play NZ at Eden Park

#NZvSA

And so, it’s NZ versus India or Australia in the final.
