Nibble nibble nom!!
In the audio interview below Callum Ferguson talks about the preparation matches and his expectations from today's first battle. Facing the Highveld Lions will be a stiff task right at the start. The Lions, who had been equally labelled as underdogs, comprehensively beat the Mumbai Indians, a motley, yet favoured, pile of mercenaries, in a rousing cricket fest on Friday, and won't be afraid of the no-names from Adelaide. However, the guy from cricketbetlive.com tips the spider boys as winners of the trophy (not at least because they call Shaun Tait their own), I thought my ears fall off, especially after witnessing the ice cold fashion in which Rusty Theron -select him already!!!-, pardon, the Warriors, dissected Wayamba last night, which cost me a large part of my sanity; I'm still grinning like a monkey on fermented fruit. However, this clash today is sure going to be one of the more interesting encounters of the "small but nice" kind: Hampshire I v Hampshire II, a tasty treat for every county cricket connoisseur.
