It's Friday again, AND April Fools' Day, and we thought we'd heard an AFD joke on the radio this morning; Michael Campbell was in a tie for sixth in the latest European Tour event after an opening round of 3-under par. But no; it's true; well done Cambo, and keep it going for 72 holes!
The ICC has got its dream World Cup final; India versus Sri Lanka at Mumbai. It's Murali's last international match, and it's at Sachin Tendulkar's home ground. The Little Master has a chance to create history tomorrow night; who would bet against him scoring his 100th international century in this match of matches? The pitch at Wankhede Stadium should be a belter, and the atmosphere will be electric. Much as it would be nice for New Zealand to be able to say that it was beaten by the World Cup winners, we reckon that India has too much all-round prowess.
We haven't even looked at what rugby and league awaits this weekend. We're yet to actually watch a full match live this season, and perhaps when Daylight Saving ends at the weekend, we'll feel a bit more enthusiastic about the winter codes. Feel free to fill in the gaps; James Stevenson promised a rant about the Hurricanes on Monday, but it hasn't eventuated, so he has his forum today. Rant away JS!!
That's about it from us today. Doubtless we've missed something significant, so feel free to fill in the gaps; the floor, as always, is yours....
