Cricketers are ALL slimline athletes!

Update: Stephen Fleming attacks Mark Richardson, or does he?! It was a joke apparently.

Update: click here to listen to the MP3 of the race.

I think you’ll agree that this shows the true fitness of cricketers; lean, mean, sporting machines. Or not, as Mark Richardson and Darren Lehmann perfectly demonstrate here! This is a bit of fun Mark Richardson has introduced over the past few years – donning a full-length (swimming?) costume, and challenging the least-athletic of the opposing team, at the end of a series! Great fun :)

Although one wonders if this isn’t just an opportunity for NZ to start winning something (sorry) :)
