SOUTH Africa has pulled off the second-biggest run-chase in its one-day international history to sink Australia in their tri-series clash in Harare.

    LLEYTON Hewitt has suffered a heavy first-round US Open defeat to complete the worst grand slam season of his celebrated 18-year career.

    TOMI Juric and Ante Covic proved the heroes as Western Sydney Wanderers moved into the ACL semi-finals despite losing to Guangzhou Evergrande.

    SENNA did it. So did Fangio, Brabham and Schumacher. A third F1 win on bounce at Monza would put Daniel Ricciardo in rare company.

    BERNARD Tomic is through to round 2 of the US Open after a straight sets victory over Dustin Brown while Marinko Matosevic was unable to topple five-time champion Roger Federer.

    The Official XXIX Club Song

    XXIX Club founding member Ian 'Doc' McDonald (left) with XXIX Club song author Doug ReidThere is a tavern at the ground, at the ground,
    Where XXIXers sit around, sit around,
    ‘Mid pints of beer and camaraderie,
    And talk about the MCC.

    Happy hours of reminiscing,
    Not a single stroke is missing,
    As the runs and wickets tumble from their memory,

    Good friends, the game will live for aye, live for aye,
    As long as XXIXers play, IXers play:
    So lift your glass and drink with throttle free,
    To Cricket and the MCC.

    Doug Reid – 1962
