    Simple question

    Are you a batter a bowler or an all rounder?



    I'm a pretty dire allrounder but I'm a PE legend

    I'm a bowler who likes to think he can bat (and bowl ). I can hold up the middle-lower order (5-7) for my club U16 side, but that is about as high as I go.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Former opening batsman. Although I did bowl a few of by off-spinners in the friendly games and the nets.

    Bowling all rounder.

    I am a better bowler than batsman, but I am a good batsman too.

    The higher the level the more of a bowler, the lower the level the more a batsman.

    no WK option in the poll

    a batting all-rounder .... usually used to be the undisputed choice for captaincy

    haven't touched bat for sometime now but will probably get back to decent batting after a few hits, can't say the same for bowling

    As for me, who's read Harry Potter? Well if you have, you'll have heard the term "squib". I am the Cricketing equivalent of a squib.

    I've never read Harry Potter, but I know the term 'squib' in the context of 'a damp squib' being, in my understanding, something built up but ultimately wholly disappointing.

    I, of course, am primarily a bowler. Much slower now than I was thanks to a combination of age, beer and knees which are totally ****ed.
