Blasts from the past: Ntini cranks into total Mak-attack

Journalist


Today in SA sports history: May 7
2003 — The Proteas win the third and final Test against New Zealand by four wickets to take the home series 2-0.
2005 — Skipper Graeme Smith leads from the front in Kingston as the Proteas down the West Indies in the opening match of their five-match ODI series. Shivnarine Chanderpaul had elected to bat first, but Makhaya Ntini took four wickets, including the crucial scalps of Chris Gayle (26), Chanderpaul (49) and Dwayne Bravo (14) to dismiss the hosts for 253. Smith scored 103 from 102 balls with Boeta Dippenaar making 56 and Jacques Kallis an unbeaten 51. This was the sixth match in what would be an unbeaten run of 20 ODIs for SA, including two no-results and one tie. The record is 21 by Australia from 2003.
