So the ICC World Twenty20 comp has started. Just as well too, it has been far too long since the last Twenty20 competition. Other people have reviewed the tournament way better than I could, so I don’t really need to add anything. Plus, I really don’t have the energy.
I do, however, have the inside scoop on some of the odds being offered on the tournament.
The chance of England will suffer an ‘unexpected‘ loss to a minnow – against Ireland $2.50 – in the semi finals $75
Chance of Graeme Smith breaking a finger – $1.50
Chance of lil davy warner proving Darwin’s theory of Natural Selection $1.80
Chance of me getting out of bed at 3am to watch games $30
Chance of an Australian not saying “Aw look” during a prematch and/or postmatch interview $1.20
Chance of Pakistan feeding Shahid Afridi 7 large Hawaiian pizzas, 5 chicken kebabs, 19 litres of peppermint choc chip icecream, 23 granny smith apples, 12 raspberry lollipops and 8 footlong pepperoni subs before every match, just in case $2.30
Chance of Australia being knocked out in the first round $3.60
Chance of me caring about the tournament should Australia be knocked out in the first round $780
Chance of Dirty Dirk being absolutely awesome $1.01
