Love hearing stories of players playing at Park/Village/Club level; I've got plenty of mates who play cricket at various levels; many of whom I've played with at various times who have since gone on to bigger things or down to lesser things but regardless when we catch up during the season (or on the emails on a Monday) the conversation inevitably turns to our respective exploits over the weekends.
The narrative nature of cricket at any level makes always makes for compelling conversation and discussion as against; for example; football where I describe the weekends game as "we lost 3-1; they score first, we equalised then they scored 2 more times. i kicked the ball a few times and made a few tackles."
Would love to see more threads like this (or this thread more active) given the number of regular contributers here who play at some level. For me I'll keep following this thread as a way of getting my amateur cricket fix while I wait for spring to roll back around.
I may even indulge myself and provide a couple of reports of games from last season, time and work permitting.
