    CW Cricketers

    So I was thinking about this. I nknow a lot of posters play club cricket and what will you, but I was wondering, how many really good Cricketers do we have here?

    There's three that spring to mind for me, who are all supposed to be rather good.

    Firstly, there's Jack (vic_orthdox). I don't know the ins and outs of his career like some do, but I do know he is supposedly rather good.

    Secondly, there's Goughy, who I believe was near to playing First Class, runs a coaching company and was a ****-hot fast bowler in his day. I think videos of him bowling may even have been posted on here (or a link to them) but I was in work at the time and could not view.

    Thirdly, I believe FRAZ has played First Class. or am I imagining this? I believe he's a really quick pace bowler.


    Any others who have played at a high level or are likely to?

    Yeah, Goughy has led me to believe that he used to be a pretty good quick bowler, who bowled at some top players in nets (Collingwood, Key and so on) and good club level.

    We do have Pickup here, but he's a league unto himself.

    SJS & Social have both played at a fairly high level too I think.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    SJS, how could I forget?

    I was unaware of social's past-exploits, however.

    Played Quaid-e-Azam U-19 trophy and from the seniors Gas company team played for one tournament and was fetching bottles of water and smelly towels inside the ground for most of the times . Played 1-2 matches and was bad honestly speaking but was a good player from my college side . Was admitted in FC college on sports basis . Played among the Punjab college of Commerce fellows and then finally for CBA fellows . Currently I am trying to play this season in Toronto (3rd division) and play in-door currently and I am a smoking hot looking bowler !!!!!

    I used to work with this fella:

    http://content-nz.cricinfo.com/austr...ayer/6688.html

    He is therefore only one degree of separation from this forum

    Nope. Not good enough. He's not on the forum, so he doesn't count. You're just trying to manufacture extra credit for yourself.

    Aren't you about five years older than him? Guess he was something of a prodigy.

    Are you being biased over here or you wanna make fun of Canadians . We have our divisions over here . Pretty decent cricket is over here . Although standard is not that high but still we have a good cricket scene over here !
