Got back from my bike ride to find Vaughan and his team sitting out in the middle. The umpires offered the light to the batsmen, but didn’t consult Vaughan (who could have suggested using his spinners). What a CRUSHING blow to England, a real sledgehammer. SA will see this as a victory; England a loss. They’re going to be so gutted.
It’s not been called off just yet, but it’s not looking good. The lights are on – why can’t they play? Can anyone shed any light (sorry) on this? What a depressing and ridiculous way to end probably the best Test of 2004.
