    Why do you love the game?

    Personally I love it because of the tactics, and the beauty of a batsman scoring runs, or a bowler peeling the ball away from a wayward stroke. The moments when time stands still and an impossible catch is taken.

    The way this game is so incredibly physical and dangerous despite the players never coming into contact. Yet I guess most of all I love the sounds, the crowd roaring, the bat hitting the ball and perhaps best of all the bat hitting the stumps followed by a triumphant roar.

    Bowlers. Nothing more beautiful than watching a bowler on fire repeatedly beating the bat in a Test match.

    Exactly fast bowlers ,i just love them ,the reason i started watching cricket was the most beautiful fast bowler ever called Michael Holding ,continued watching because of an ethereal artist called Wasim Akram ,still watching because of the talent called Dale steyn.

    I don't need a reason. I've loved it since I was 3 years old hitting a plastic ball around in my front yard with my plastic cricket bat, and I'll never stop.

    Not sure why. I mean no one in my family likes cricket at all, in fact after 9 news during a Perth Test it is a race to change the channel straight away so how I suddenly came to love it, is weird.

    I guess I knew a lot of people who did like cricket and it got me started, and that a lot of people kept making references from my surname to a certain West Indian fast bowler who took 519 Test wickets so I was forced to learn about to have an idea what they are talking about. Started in 95/96, was a bit casual until until the 1999 WC and have been hooked since.

    Of course I love the tatical side of things, when I'm watching and a team is on top I just can't help to think what I would do if I were the opposing captain and some of the feats that have happened over the years have astounded me. And then there are people like Steve Waugh who changed how I think from watching him play and reading his books.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    I've had it up to here with All Blacks losing at the world cups, and sick of rugby's disenchantment of their fans.

    Pah, couldn't care less about rugby.

    And yes I hate it because I feel the teenage need to rebel against the norm.

    Nah, I loved it since long before then TBH. 1992 WC. Same as, you know, that tooextracool fellow.

    I'd not imagine many people can put their finger on just why - the best I can do is "because I do".

    A bit like Smith I've hit a ball around with bat as long as I can remember, always played, and have followed the international game (rather than just England) since 2000/01 too.
