Cricketing it unreal 

Well, Sri Lanka just beat Zimbabwe by an innings and 254 runs, having knowcked up a handy 713/3 decl. in their only turn at bat. Cricinfo describes the Zimbabwe team as "second string" but even that is generous ... their normal first-choice test team is made up almost solely from the 15 sacked white players, but even they are just who is left after a string of early retirements and people having to leave the country to ... stay alive.

Anyhow, the prospect of every test cricketing record being obliterated when the shameless Australians take on the hapless Zimbabwe team (i.e., the 3rd XI) seems to have spurred the ICC into action, and there's talk that perhaps the series will be abandoned. Still, we shouldn't be complaining, perhaps the shame of having the lowest innings total in test match history - a stunning 26 runs - will finally be lost by NZ. God knows we've held onto it for 50 years.

I'm not sure if the TAB is taking bets on this farce, but if they are, you might want to consider putting a few dollars on Ricky Ponting to score a double-century (and possibly beat Brian Lara's new record of 400), and for Australia to become the first test team to score 1000 runs in an innings - the previous highest being 952/6 declared.
