    The (other) things to bring

    Any one have any suggestions on what to bring to your match apart from bat and pads ect. Im asking for any suggestions that may make the day go past faster or make the game a little easier eg. chewing gum (makes the day fly buy) or to make the game that little bit easier my friend brings bottle caps (discretly roughs up the ball .

    I go for the watch and analyse approach with the occasional easy bowling to those next in.

    Making fun of the opposition's usually good for a laugh, especially any fat ones, or ones who are clearly up their own arse. Sometimes handy to have a little net as well, if you can.

    Newspaper is essential when batting in the lower order so a 2 hr relaxing dump can take place

    bit of contradiction there?

    making fun of the opposition makes YOU look like a wanker. To both your team and the opposition.

    Naah, you do it when they're all in the field and not so they can hear. Just the odd comment of '**** me, my dog could throw further than that guy' suffices.

    yea thats fine imo.

    But insulting a player when they can hear makes you look like an ass.

    For example in one of my teams theres this bowler who we think is pus and he regularly gets the most wickets in that grade, and we rag him all the time because we wonder how he gets all the wickets. Hes so slow but is accurate

    What if there's a terrible collapse while you're in the midst of that?

    Hope that the collapse is mid-order, and not mid-colon, I suppose.
