I notice that both you and JR have studiously avoided answering my previous comment Also JR, one would have to ask whether the Oz captain would have chosen to have adopted the same tactics as Fleming did if he were in the same position - funny that !!

Personally I am 99.9% sure that Steve Waugh would not have done what Fleming did. He would have had the confidence in his team to play whoever else qualified.

Let's face it. As far as Fleming was concerned it was either payback or a lack of confidence in his team to be able to beat Oz in the finals.
Can you venture any other possible reason for what he did?

There is something I said that you studiously avoided.It is a totally different matter playing in a way to make sure your own team makes the finals, than it is playing in a way that makes sure team B (SA)makes the final instead of team A (Oz).
