Lyon to Rudolph, OUT, lbw! Asad Rauf takes an age to raise his finger, but Rudolph has reviewed the decision. Lyon pitches outside off and angles the ball into the left-hander, Rudolph comes forward to defend but plays outside the line of the ball and is hit on the back pad. That hit the pad just in line and would have gone on to hit the sumps. That will stay out. Rudolph has to go
JA Rudolph lbw b Lyon 11 (36b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.55
Into the bowlers now, we have a chance...slim though it may be...

I think Clarke has indicated that he wants to continue trying to get South Africa out. So we'll enter the final hour. The umpires call for drinks.

Four now and only 20 mins
I think with the extra time allowed for the lost day, the final hour commenced at 4:30pm local time, so play should end around 5:30pm if they go that far before agreeing to a draw.

After 68 overs:
4.55 pm The Test has come to an end. Clarke has agreed to call it off with 11 overs remaining. It's been drawn and you'd have to say Australia had the better of it ever since the second day was washed out completely.
Hmmm, thought that wasn't how it was meant to finish (the number of overs to bowl to them). NM is correct, they have agreed that a result would not be possible in the next 30 mins and normal stumps have been drawn.

Probably the right result, but good effort by Clarke and the Aussies for giving it a go at obtaining a win.

Yes, 9.30am starts each day...and longer finishes (6pm) apart from today (slated to finish at 6pm, but agreement to finish early by gentlemans agreement).

Pity the crowd was only 50k for the match, might have to pencil in next years dates to see if I can contribute to an improvement.

Next year is an Ashes series, so you'd better get in early. No guests in the QCC for the first 2 days, members only!

Yep. Of course the big problem there was losing the second day, a Saturday, where the crowd probably would have normally been at its peak for the match ... and after that the draw was the most likely result.
