Food poison scare for Tasmanian cricketersMarch 7th, 2012 - 9:17 pm ICT by IANS
Sydney, March 7 (IANS) Ahead of the final round of Sheffield Shield games, some of the Tasmanian cricketers were down with food poisoning and had to be put on intravenous drips.
Batsman Alex Doolan, all-rounders Jeremy Smith and Matt Johnston and spinner Jason Krejza were the worst affected.
Tasmanian captain Ricky Ponting said he was not among the victims.
“So far, so good. I’ll be very careful what I eat today, though. I mightn’t eat anything tonight before the game,” Ponting Wednesday said.
With Western Australia four points clear on top, Queensland, Tasmania and Victoria are all within striking distance, all on 30 points.
