    Am I too old to play Kallisball?

    Am I too old to play the Kallisball? I played as a child, but as an older man (mid-30s) I am wondering whether it is still possible? I am a middle order bat and spin bowler. I am being very attacking, and wonder whether Afridi/Afridi would be more suitable to my game style than Kallisball or Limited Overs Bevan.

    Please respond, or I will post pics of my stomach.

    No you can never be too old to play. A couple of years ago I played a game of kallisball against an 80 year old who sachined without gloves and steyned second change. He was a walking wicket and a chucker who got carted but he loved every second of it.

    Notice you went with Bird and not someone else - very politically correct.

    Come on guys. Stay on the topic. To answer your question. My dad is nearly 50 and he still plays cricket with us. And not just the usual mug around in the backyard!! He can bowl some decent off-spinners and can frustrate you with the bat. Anyway to get back to the topic, if my dad could do it you could do it.
