Great innings from Roy today..
I thought we may get to 400 at one point, but 386 is a superb total..

I know one day cricket is all about runs for the crowd but the bowler is entitled at the very least for the bails to come off If they bowl someone.

England gifted them countless runs, pretty much beat themselves

Was slightly farcical though.
I recall an England v south Africa game some where whe it 1st came in when the boks were asked something utterly ludicrous but the exact circumstances escape me

You are thinking of the 1992 World Cup semi but that wasnt D/L then. In fact it was that game which meant they brought it in

As big a game as that?
I just remember the anger and incredulity from all parties.
Think hansie cronje was captain so it would have been around that time.
30 off 1 ball or something daft

21 off one ball, yes. Wasnt a Duckworth/Lewis total though

"The second semi-final between South Africa and England, the match ended in controversial circumstances when, after a 10-minute rain delay, the most productive overs method revised South Africa's target from 22 runs from 13 balls to an impossible 21 runs from one ball. This rule was replaced for One Day International matches in Australia after the World Cup as a result of this incident, and it was eventually superseded by the Duckworth–Lewis method for the 1999 World Cup onwards. According to the late Bill Frindall, had the Duckworth–Lewis method been applied at that rain interruption, the revised target would have been four runs to tie or five to win from the final ball. As a point of clarity, ESPN points out that England's innings was cut short when the overs were not completed by 6:10 p.m. (the rescheduled close of innings time), Cricinfo say that had Duckworth–Lewis been applied to the entire game, South Africa's target from the original 45 overs would have been 273, which would then have been reduced to 257 from 43 overs, i.e. five runs more than they were set under the most productive overs rule."
