Do as I say...

For your collection of 'Do as we say, not as we do' stories, this one contributed by Saurabh Wahi:
The Australians finished 86 runs short of the target of 443, and Waugh said that it had always been an improbable task, terming Sourav Ganguly's declaration "reasonably sporting" - "It gave us about a two percent chance of winning," he said to loud guffaws. "We were behind the eight-ball all day," said Waugh. "Simon Katich threatened for a while, and we were always debating whether or not to go for it. I thought it was a brave effort to get so close."

Ahem -- Australia have declared their second innings closed at 490, as Saurabh points out. Giving South Africa a reasonable half of one per cent chance of winning.
