Greatness CC Rocked by Withdrawl
It seems that the Greatness CC have issued a press statement this morning via their marketing manager Mervyn Hughes.It read as follows:
"We have had some rather unfortunate news this morning. This came in the form of the withdrawl of the Spin Lizzard from the Nadoes 7's on Sunday. He tendered his resignation with a tear in his eye, citing an overwhelming workload as the reason for his actions.
The cricketing public were keen to see the spin lizzard perform in the shortened form of the game as he has been a prolific wicket taker of late for the Nadoes franchise in both the 1-day and 2-day series'.
We have called an emergency meeting of the board to discuss a replacement for the Spin Lizzard. We have decided on SA Cricket Captain Graeme Smith. On hearing the news of his selection, he was whisked from his hotel in Bangladesh and is on a plane as we speak. He will be joing the players at their training camp early tommorrow morning.
Although our line-up has been dented slightly, we still believe that we have what it takes to bring the cup home."
The Greatness CC remain as the bookies favouites at 2-1, closely followed by the Debutants, the Cobras at 5-2.
It remains to be seen whether they will crumble under the pressure or they will live up to their full potential and win the Cup for a record breaking 2nd time.
