The Australian Cricket Board today announced that the side currently leading India two nil in a best of four test series will next play Channel 9’s Spider Camera in a six test series, following the World Cup.

A Cricket Australia spokesperson told The (un) Australian: “Spider cam will be a worthy adversary for the boys I mean yesterday it got the best of Steve Smith on the field and look at the summer he’s having.”

The details of how a side of 11 cricketers will play against a camera that is wired to the roofs of stadiums have yet to be made clear, however the move has already got a lot of former players talking.

Former Australian player and celebrated Tupperware salesman Neil Harvey said: “Cricketers today are soft, taking on a spider camera, in my day we didn’t have spider cameras we used to have to play a game then go knock on everybody in Australia’s doors to tell them how the game went.”

Channel 9 commentator and noted moustache enthusiast Ian Chappell was indifferent to the series telling The (un) Australian: “Cameras, let me tell you about cameras, one time Dennis Keith Lillee, Keith Raymond Stackpole and Douglas, oh what’s his middle name, hang on I can’t continue ‘til I know his middle name call me back in 20.”

The six test series will be shown on channel 9 and sporting bet are offering 2:1 odds in favour of Australia. They are also taking bets on how many people will tweet about Shane Watson.
