Sit On It!

It is only fitting that in the land that gave the world bungy jumping we should witness the first Xtreme cricket test.

A whole new cricketing genre can be developed around playing in extreme conditions. Yesterday it was 130 km/hr winds but think how interesting it could be in a snow storm or perhaps a thunderstorm while playing with aluminium bats?

The spectator numbers will be low but the TV ratings could be huge.

Close observers will not that the hardy Kiwi groundstaff, seen here preventing the covers from crossing Cook Strait, remain stoically in their shorts - more a reflection of their pay rates than their toughness?
