Mugabe Launches Zim Bid to Host 2015 Cricket World Cup

Editor's Note: With a by-line like Wiseman Nogothere, it's fairly clear this is an April Fool's article, but hey - it raised a giggle with me...
You can't blame him for optimism. Potentially outgoing Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe appeared in public yesterday, in the midst of the ongoing furore over the election counts & results, to launch Zimbabwe's bit to host the 2015 Cricket World Cup. The centrepiece of the bid is a redeveloped Harare Sports Club ground, capable of holding 50,000 spectators, that is to be built at a cost of around US$50million. Mugabe was bullish about Zim's cricket future:

“The great cricketing countries will come and we will welcome them and we will beat them.”

Ah, the possibilities...
