Cape Town: The records that tumbled

Rarely do we see days like these in test cricket. Cape Town was host to some of the most unpredictable and unimaginable cricketing scenes today that set all the records tumbling, albeit in a manner neither team would appreciate.

A total of 23 wickets fell today, with a part of all four innings being played. This definitely doesn’t happen too often.

Continuing from their overnight score of 214/8, Australia managed to reach 284 before being bundled out by the South Africans. In reply, the home team could manage only 96 runs, taking up 147 deliveries or 24.3 overs to reach the modest score. As if this wasn’t low enough, the Aussies took it up to themselves to shatter some records, being bundled up for a mere 47 in their second outing in just 108 balls (or 18 overs).

In fact, if it wasn’t for a 26-run last-wicket partnership between Peter Siddle and Nathan Lyon, Australia were struggling to reach even 47 as they were reeling at 21/9 when the pair came together. Meanwhile Lyon, batting at No. 11, amusingly ended as top-scorer with 14 runs to his name.

The day also saw two extraordinary spells of wicket-taking.

Shane Watson took 5-15 with his first 21 deliveries of the day. To match that, debutant Vernon Philander took 5-9 with his first 34 balls.

Philander ended with 5-15, the best innings figures by a South African Test debutant since Lance Klusener took 8-64 against India in 1996.

His match figures are right up there too.

And lastly, though both the sides have been playing some amateurish cricket, one of them is going to win tomorrow. It will create just the 12th instance of winning after scoring less than 100 in one of their innings.

Who will it be? South Africa or Australia?

Barclays Premier League Results Roundup: 18 September 2011

Hack your scores in Game Center! (video demo)

The hacker community seems to have upped the ante and are trying to hack almost everything that comes their way, with Apple’s Game Center being their latest victim.

HackCenter is a new hack that lets you inflate your score, in any game, to how much ever you want, and then send the inflated score to Game Center. The hack will soon be available on the Cydia store.

In the video below the developer demonstrates how to use HackCenter to inflate the scores of a game called Fruit Ninja:

MacBook Air put up against high end Netbooks, till battery do us apart

We’ve all given our views and perceptions on the new Apple MacBook Airs. While majority of us are drooling over it, a few others are skeptical about it. So how about a comparison between the new MacBook Airs and other high end Netbooks to settle the score once and for all?

The guys over at PC World conducted their famous WorldBench 6 test that put the 11-inch Air against the bigwigs first, and then the 13-inch Air. Here’s an excerpt:

Our WorldBench 6 software runs systems through a timed gantlet of popular consumer applications such as Adobe Photoshop and Mozilla Firefox, compiles the results, and spits out an overall score. The 11-inch Air earned a WorldBench 6 score of 74, very impressive given that the average WorldBench 6 score of the netbooks we’ve tested recently is 45.

Even more impressive was the 11-inch Air’s performance in our gaming tests: Most netbooks can’t run 3D games like DiRT 2 and Call of Duty 4 at all, but the Air managed to sustain a frame rate of 23 frames per second while running COD4 at 1024 by 768 resolution and high graphic settings; much of the credit probably should go to the Nvidia GeForce 320M graphics card, which comes standard in every Air model.

As you can see, the 11-inch Air beat its competitors by quite a margin. So now, not only does the new MacBook Air pack a punch with its sophistication and its looks, it also has the performance to match. The only area it loses the bragging rights is the battery life.

The guys at PC World then proceeded to test the 13-incher and weren’t disappointed with it too.

As you can see, the Asus U33jc is the only portable to rise above the Air. It outperformed Apple’s baby slightly in the Windows benchmarks.

So now, we can boldly say Apple is the king of tech! They are a group of very smart people who calculate each and every variable, whether internal or external, and proceed with their products keeping everything in mind, and though their prices are really crazy, they somehow always tend to justify it with their exceptional work. Hats off Apple!

FIFA World Cup 2010: Spain 1-0 Paraguay (Full Highlights)

Another an unconvincing performance from the Spanish side and again a David Villa goal to bail them out. The match saw not many chances with both sides getting a chance to go ahead from the spot but both teams missed their opportunity.

It was the 59th minute when Paraguay were awarded a penalty. Cardozo stepped up but failed to score

Then soon after, Spain won themselves a spot kick. Xabi Alonso stepped up and converted it, only for the referee to disallow the goal and make Alonso retake the kick. In his second attempt, though, Xabi couldn’t score

Then in the 83rd minute the deadlock was finally broken when David Villa scored the only goal of the game
