Wrestling with victory

Some believe the Blackcaps are in the best form ever and have the best chance of winning the World Cup. And, given it's taking place here, there are no shortage of supporters. Even the the World Wrestling Federation, which, as some have pointed out, are renowned match fixers, is backing us. 

The WWE posted an image to its Facebook page that said: “Best of luck to the BLACKCAPS as the cricket world cup kicks off in New Zealand this Saturday! Which WWE superstar do you think would make an excellent cricketer?”

The Bushwhackers, obviously. And, if switching the question, Jesse Ryder, who is set to fight Whale Oil in the fight for life, would be able to make the switch.
