Stiff Asking Rate

I note that in the NZ domestic first-class competition Auckland has just set
Otago a victory target of one run in a minimum of 175 overs.  Apparently
this is a required rate of 0.0057 runs per over, which even Jamie How could
probably chase with confidence.

As I write, the target has been narrowly achieved with only 174.2 overs to
spare.

Speaking of How, what is he doing in the odo side? At the rate he's
(not) going, we may have to change the term from "Hot Water" to "How
Water".

How? is an excellent specialist fieldsman.  Incidentally also the team's
reserve wicket-keeper.

The New Delhi Times has picked up the story and called for an
investigation into possible corrupt spot-betting on the first three
balls of that innings.
