    You know what really grinds my cricketing gears?

    To follow on from the legendary Thomas thread in OT.

    When commentators see two players talking on the field and they say "He's telling him...", no he's not you ****. You have no idea what they're saying, stfu.

    Disappointed, TBH, wanted to start it. And thought "breaks my bats" or summat'd be better.

    So, in summary, Gelman's leaping in there and getting in 1st does it for me.

    EDIT: and so does Perm getting the 2nd post when I wanted the 1st reply!

    Nah, I'm only joking, anyhoo.

    Y'all know what pisses me off more than anything in cricket. No-balls, dropped catches and bad Umpiring decisions.

    I hate seeing rubbish balls get wickets, too. And even not going for lots of runs. And edged boundaries. And slogging tailenders scoring runs.

    And...

    TBC, TBH.

    Well, Greg's was. And no - I'm more of a Futurama \ South Park type.

    People correcting others about cricket names. Who the **** cares if it is Ranit or Ranith for instance.

    Bill Lawry seeing a big bloke and going "This guy's a big hitter" regardless of the fact that he's probably never seen him bat before.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    The person concerned?

    I'd not want someone going around calling people Partush Kytn, for instance.

    Nopes. He can't bother regarding what each of the millions of cricket fans spell his name as. My example you gave is different. Also, it is not the same in another way as Ranjith and Ranjit is different compared to Partush Kytn and my proper name. I would correct some one who called him Renju for instance.
