Australians Falling Like Flies

Not the whole team yet, but to any Aussie it would seem that Indian chefs at the restaurants the Australian cricket team frequents are trying to achieve this end.

Cricinfo reports that Shane Watson has been "rushed" to hospital complaining of chest and stomach pains. Poor kid. He was probably out celebrating his fantastic performances thus far in the Champions Trophy and demolished one too many bowls of butter chicken.

John Buchanan is quoted as saying that there have been minor stomach related disturbances for the players on this trip. That is the first I've heard of any such discomfort. However, kudos must go Australian teams since Steve Waugh's days for shutting up about the food and the pollution and concentrating on enjoying their time in India and the sub-continent in general.

Coincidentally, I was just looking through the archives and pondering how tough the Australians are. After reading this news, I realised how mistaken I was. How can you call yourself tough when you can't handle a few extra bacteria in your food?

Be a man, Watto. Bite the bullet, son.
