Bookies around the world have shortened the odds of Sri Lanka claiming the inaugural ICC One Bump Champions Trophy after witnessing the team’s performance at last night’s practice match against Pakistan.
One bookie said, “That was one of the best one bump performances we have seen in a long time by any team. So many times we thought they would actually make the catch on the full, but they somehow managed to make sure that they dropped it on the full. The Lankans are now the clear favourite to win the One Bump Championship ahead of last time’s winner, the one-armed team from Puerto Rico, despite the physical advantage.”
Lasith Malinga said, “Not one bump, we will win the Two Bump Championship as well. Unfortunately, or rather luckily, I would have retired by then. This will allow Thisara to have more overs to drop and bowl.”
