Million Dollar Shots

Shortly before presumably considering filing for bankruptcy, the whisky company, Johnnie Walker, announced it was "absolutely delighted by the inspirational and pioneering feat that was today realized by Herschelle Gibbs". Apparently they "couldn't be more thrilled with donating US$1 million to Habitat for Humanity in our efforts to enrich the Caribbean community", and offered their "sincere congratulations for this amazing accomplishment".

Here's a video of the feat that indicates that Gibbs certainly "knows his boundaries"

Here's another piece of information to understand the nature of SA's victory. The eight-page print-out detailing every ball of Holland's Duckworth-Lewis requirements. To have won the game in the event of rain, the Dutch would need to have made their final total of 132 for 9 in less than a single delivery.
