    Cricket

    The thread for all things cricket.

    Full Toss? Inside Spin? LBW?
    Most of it is a foriegn language to me but this game has a big following, and England have recently became quite good at it after a barren spell

    I do watch the T20 and Pro40 versions of the game, quicker pace and interesting final overs when the scores are close!

    I love cricket myself!
    Play a bit as well.
    I'm a mean cover fielder! Or at point. Places where you get a bit of action and sometimes get the spectacular catch.
    Usually bat around 6 or lower. I have no orthodox technique but decent hand/eye co-ordination and can hit it hard. The typical pinch hitter type

    I like cricket, but personally T20 is a pile of rubbish. A big slogfest. Generally just play with friends, bowl any which way and seem to have a Jonathan Trott style batting. Which is basicly defending or leaving it.

    Hello Paul Collingwood

    Massive cricket fan me, avid Glamorgan and England fan, however I hate the fact so many non English men play the game. I enjoy all forms of the game as they each offer something different, bring on the new season!

    England win, and Glamorgan still suck with the bat, so new season, same issues! Roll on when North and Hogan get into the team!

    Lancashire doing well against Cambridge University. Not exactly a challenge for them like, but it's good to see them putting on some good partnerships. Procter is looking good so far, 3 wickets, and 83 in the first innings.

    When I like the set up of the IPL (Where they need to play so many youngsters) it'll set India in good stead for the future.

    Plan to go on Tuesday if it lasts that long as might be too busy over weekend and Monday as bank holiday here
    Windies 60-1 at lunch so not a bad start
    Glammy are my team but TBH I don't follow cricket that much these days

    We currently are sucking with the bat, and the momentum we gained with Maynard in charge and Dalrymple as captain was all lost after Maynard, Darlrymple and Maynard Jnr left. Mott is slowly improving us, and with Marcus North due in soon our batting should start picking up. Mark Wallace is now our captain, and we have re-signed Simon Jones, but not sure how many games he'll end up playing. Also Crofty is still going

    Went to the game for a few hours today (just over 6 a ticket!) and was a tiny crowd
    Plenty of Aussies there giving it some and looks like Windies have bottled it!

    Good work Redknapp, wish I was there sinking a few Red Stripes with you.

    Our tail got us out of trouble again, bloody top order letting us down again.

    Could still go either way, or it could be a nail biting draw.

    Love a good Test Match, stick your IPL up your arse .

    So Lancashire got absolutely stuffed in their opening County game against Sussex. Lancs ended up losing by ten wickets. Not a good omen considering we are the defending champions.

    Yardy hit a tonne for Sussex and Magoffin managed to nab SEVEN wickets in the second innings. Ridiculous. Prince and Procter did show some promise in the second innings though.

    IPL is getting good at the moment! Pune played Bangalore on Tuesday and it is one of the best IPL game I've watched. Pune set a target of 182. Chris Gayle hit a mammoth 81 off 48 balls which included FIVE 6s in one over, one of them went 106m and broke a childs nose in the process. The match went all the way to the wire, last ball and AB de Villiers and Tiwary at the crease needing 3 runs to secure a win.. And Tiwary smashed a six to end the game and give Bangalore the win.

    There is a new forum/game that has just been created based around cricket simulation. I'm not going to explain it, here's what the boss says.

    I've signed up to it, and it seems rather promising.
    The actual forum is now here: http://w11.zetaboards.com/thegameofc...forum/3270990/

    Chris Gayle is just simply immense in IPL. His bat must weigh a ton!
    Watching now on ITV4. It's an all dayer today.
    Started at 11am. Delhi (including Pietersen) are playing Dekken Chargers, Chennai play Pune later.
