If only they had a 10-over format of the game, that'd suit me fine I reckon. Alas, I'll have to wait for a future generation to get bored with T20.

I remember my first game of cricket (I was a late bloomer at 13y.o.) and the the coach telling me I was opening the batting. Walking out to the middle, I realised I forgot the most important piece of equipment - the box.

Nervous as all hell, mainly because of the lack of protection for my nads, smash a 6 off the first ball. Broke a car window in the process. Next three balls went for 4, 4, and 6. With confidence up, the next ball I danced down the pitch, only to be clean bowled.

Needless to say, that turned out to be my batting career. 15-20 runs off the first 2 overs before getting out bowled or lbw. I also remembered to wear a box when batting.

I enjoyed the bowling aspect of cricket much more!

As r&b has said, fatigue would have set in.... Wink

I might have to elaborate on the 120 I made facing the Stringer brothers, Wayne and Allan, that was some fine form scrappy doodle doo.

did anyone see Tim Bresnans' delivery late in his spell when the game is all but over last night ?.....for those that didn't see it he ran in with the ball in his left hand & popped it in the air like a juggler to his right hand as he got into his delivery stride & bowled it, he did it in fun but i can't see a problem with it anyway especially considering batsmen switch hit......yet the umpires chatted him for it (not sure whether this was from a batsmens complaint or not)


does anyone see or have a problem with this ? because i don't

I didn't see it, and don't know the rule so I can't say for sure, but I would have thought so long as he nominated himself as a right arm bowler, and delivered the ball with his right arm, it would be okay. It must have been something to do with how he tossed the ball in the air. If he's nomiated as a left arm bowler, he must deliver with the left arm.

Early in my playing days, I used to run in with the ball in my right hand, then transfer to my left hand before entering the delivery stride. I felt better balanced that way, plus it would have made it harder for the batsman to focus on the ball out of the hand. Nobody ever complained, nor did umpires say anything, so I always assumed it was legal.

a lot of bowlers swap hands by placing it from one hand to the other, Bresnan 'looped it' in the air just like a juggler would from his left to right hand

Yuvraj Singh
In the 4 ODI games v England
61 Caught
32 LBW
30 Bowled
3 LBW

Yuvraj has got progressively worse with his scores
If I was the English Skipper I would bring on James Tredwell to bowl to him , if possible from the first ball in the 5th ODI
Tredwell has taken Yuvraj's wicket on all 4 occasions in the series

An interesting article in todays paper, duel Australian sportswoman Ellyse Perry has suggested there could be a women's big bash:

Ellyse Perry talks up women's big bash

I'll throw out this discussion point - do you ever think we'll see a mixed cricket competition?

Personally I think there is no reason why men and women couldn't play cricket side by side. The game doesn't involve any kind of body contact. Female bowlers might struggle to reach the speeds of their male counterparts, but I would wager that there would be a few very handy female batsmen and all-rounders that could easily hold their own against men.

I would love to see it personally.

It would have to start at Grade Cricket level IMO or lower.

It's all good coming from a sports professional, but it needs to happen at grassroots first.

I play lawn bowls competitively and it's been a mixed competition for around 5 years now.

A bit different I know because bowls doesn't really require strength, but the combination of sexes has been excellent for the sport overall.

Bringing mixed gender into lower grades of cricket would take a serious cultural change though I guess.

today at the S.A. v VIC shield match every Victorian player high fived the kids who participated in their respective 'organized lunch time matches', then Ferguson & Hughes came out, Ferguson was happy to high five all the kids & Hughes ignored & avoided them, so much so he started running, while he is entitled to do what he wants i think it is poor form from a player that kids look up too, i reckon about 30 to 40 kids went home disappointed after that.......young Raphael will be happy to sign autographs but only 2 kids have asked him so far & they were both in Melbourne

In contrast to Hughes, Punter and Hilfy managed to hang around after the Hurricanes last T20 home game and had a quick hello, shook hands and talked about the cricket and the Tas bushfires with the wife and I. They wouldn't have known us from a bar of soap, yet took the time to have a yarn. Most importantly, they signed things for any kid that came up and asked. Terrific professionalism IMO.

Redbacks win outright with 9 down, thanks to Ludemann and particularly Raphael at the end.

Sayers and Mennie have run through NSW for 155.

Klinger and Raphael have us 0/22 so far.

Sayers is a seriously good bowler and with Richardson and Putland, will give us a tidy attack for years to come.

And in the finest traditions of Redback history, they lose 5 wickets for 14 runs, crashing from 0/37 to 5/51. Some things never change.

Yep I got it!

It was operation Desert Storm on #2 ground today. Probably no grass left on it by Thursday - save for the wickets.

Will look like the desert for a while.

SA have taken 1st Innings points, with Brown and Ludemann still there.

Ludemann is a big improver this year.
