    Beach cricket

    Great thing to do while on holiday, I reconmend it. Use a chair for wickets, and a tennis ball and bowl full tosses. Let me tell you, running through sand with a bat in your hand at full pelt is bloody hard. Anyone else played it?

    Yeah, Theres no greater feeling than sweeping it into the sea and watching your mates having to splash around in ice cold water trying to get it.

    Absolutely. Although when my fat arse would play, only boundries counted. No running for me.

    Beach cricket with a BC ball is just awesome. We had all these randoms playing, and one of them top-scored with 49, before being caught in the ocean with an insane diving catch by another random. Being able to bounce the ball = better BC game.

    ...no. He was a tank, and just threw it back and continued to swim.

    Beamers are always a good one to put in though.... Try hitting that one!

    I bowled the perfect one, it was like chris cairns "Doodlebug" (Is it called that?) which got Chris read out. and the ball just plummeted back down and whipped a bail off.
