The ICC, the international cricketing governing body had moved quickly to defend its latest initiative to raise the profile of women's cricket- the Womens ICC Naked 20 - Twenty series.
In a statement issued last night the ICC stated that, "This is an innovative approach to raising the profile of women's cricket. It will bring in huge crowds who will want to look and the talent on display."
However, womens' groups including 'PMT and Proud' have condemned the new series as 'sexist extortion'.
"If any woman signs up for this they are little more than a stripper or a whore," Kate Hartley, a spokeswoman for the group screamed. "We need to stand up to these arseholes and show them who is the bitch!" she added.
All nine one day naked female internationals were sold out within four minutes of tickets going on sale and it is rumored that the new format will be extended to One Hundred - 100 in the near future, with team of over one hundred naked women on the field at any one time.
Players will be selected by a group of unnamed men who will interview each player in a darkened room featuring a pole and spotlights, with loud music to assist their deliberations. The pole said is to assist the selectors' judgment with regard to footwork.
The first game will begin at Edgbaston on 23rd April 2010 when it is hope that the players nipples will be especially hard, due to the expected low temperature.
