    Top cricket things not at a cricket ground

    A CW Staff Member and I thought this would make a good thread

    What are your favourite cricket things not at a cricket ground?

    One that comes to mind for me is the clock at the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney that has a great cricket component to it. On the hour/every hour, out comes a collection of cricket models and a ball is bowled to the batsman which clean bowls him. It's all very nicely put together.

    I really like the Bradman Museum and the Bradman walk - both in Bowral. A really good cricket museum with interactive exhibits and films. A really enjoyable cricket day out.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    I don't know if it's my favourite thing, but I do like the language cricket has given us. It's used by non-cricket fans all the time without them realising its origins which always makes me smile.

    I suppose the obvious examples are "caught out" when someone's been naughty & "hit for six" or alternatively "bowled over" when one is shocked.

    A personal favourite of mine is "he/she had a good innings" when someone of ripe old years passes away.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Anyone else thinks the thread title sounds like a question Bert would pop out on Bert's Family Feud?
