    I agree cricketplayer was such a legend, sadly he is no longer with us. Pretty sad turn of events.

    Thats shocking. Terrible for the family and I really hope they are not saddled with massive medical expenses in addition to their loss and heartache.

    I am an ex-member of the Northen California cricketing community it is obvious that he was well respected and liked by an impressive number of people which makes his passing at a young age even more upsetting.

    Thoughts and regards to the family

    Could we have this sad news moved somewhere else?

    It seems inappropiate to have this terrible news in a thread titled like this one.

    Please

    This is horrible news. Even in the other thread, when someone mentioned Fardin wasn't with us, I thought he meant it with respect to CW. May his soul rest in everlasting peace. And really, it won't be such a bad idea for us to carry that in our sigs. The posts in that link show how highly regarded he was. And to me, he always came across as some one with a great amount of genuine enthusiasm for the game. The fact that he still always posted and tried to improve himself here at CW inspite of so many posters picking on him showed that.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    It's my opinion that this thread should be closed, as some of the stuff I said to cricket player doesn't really bear reading with hindsight.
    Still mean every word I said about the idiot Camel56 types, mind.

    When I hear the word "plodder" at cricket,I think of batsmen who are painfully slow at scoring runs,and who have only a small range of strokes,and to me, the worst two I have seen in my lifetime are unquestionably,...Bill Lawry & Trevor Bailly,..they bored me to tears.
    Australians all let us rejoice,for we are 1-2-3.

    I'm not young enough to know everything.

    How about Mark Greatbatch playing against Australia in Perth taking 462 minutes to score 146*.This was in 1989-90 series and I was there and it WAS Boring
