    We may have lost the test, but check the lengths Mark Richardson goes to for his series sprint against the slowest in the opposition.

    Ok maybe he's an underdog in this aswell

    Rigor the roughie in slowcoach race

    Mark Richardson struggled for runs in the first cricket test and he is also struggling for support for his much-anticipated race with Darren Lehmann next week.


    The New Zealand opener, nicknamed Rigor (as in Rigor Mortis), was today rated a $2.30 outsider by bookmakers Centrebet.

    Australian batsman Lehmann, nicknamed Boof, was a $1.55 favourite in the 100m sprint between the slowest members of each side.

    "Richardson dresses like Cathy Freeman but runs like Gary Freeman," Centrebet's Gerard Daffy said in a statement.

    "No-one nicknamed Rigor could be the favourite for any athletics event, could they?"

    Richardson began the tradition against the slowest opposition player last year when he beat Pakistan's Danish Kaneria, but was just pipped by England's Ashley Giles in his latest contest in June.

    He sported a beige figure-hugging bodysuit for the occasion.

    Not only is Lehmann expected to outsprint Richardson, he is also expected to outscore him on the field when the second test starts in Adelaide on Friday.

    Centrebet had Lehmann at $1.80, with Richardson at $1.90 in the head to head contest to score the most runs.

    Australia, after their innings and 156 run victory in the first test, are $1.45 favourites to sweep the series 2-0 while Centrebet is offering $10 for a New Zealand win.
