Australia vs South Africa - 3rd ODI

Whoa, geez. I just realised the last time I posted something was 10 days ago.
I’m getting lazy.
Well, I’ve thought of something to make up for that.
I’m gonna have a crack at commentating. YEP, LIVE.
I’ll try and commentate everything. Even the commercials! Including some lame jokes of mine.
Just for the first hour though. Soooo, until 3 o’clock AEST.
This is just how I see things. Sorry if you don’t agree. :)
Here we go...
