"The greatest match ever played"

Normally, 300+ runs in a limited-overs cricket match is a decent score. A score in the high 300's would be unasssailable...

Before Sunday, no side had ever scored more than 400 in a one-day international, but Australia managed to hit 434 / 4. South Africa still managed to beat them, though! With one ball to spare, SA hit 438 / 9.

Unfortunately I didn't get to watch this match, although it looks like they'l be making a DVD of it. IOL have a nice summary of the match here.
