    Thread Opened.

    If you want your message read from Mathew, there's a way better chance by submitting it as a comment to the first article that has gone up. Feel free to do both (here and there)

    I really doubt that, but he's told me he's more than happy to answer visitors questions within the articles he'll be doing.

    Haha, just turned out that way actually.

    It's great to have someone involved with the site who wants to be involved and is a great bloke too, along with Mathew being someone with a lot of cricket experience.

    Haha, I actually had very little to do with it. I wrote his intro but James was the driving force behind contacting CD and organising it. Thanks must go to CD too for responding. The hardest thing I had to do was keep my mouth shut for a couple of days.

    Needless to say though, I do think this is particularly awesome. I can't wait until he starts blogging; so excited.

    James - I will e-mail you some questions for Sinclair. I'd like to pose him a few Daryls, but I don't want to upset the guy given that this is presumably a bit of a coup for you so its right that you have "editorial discretion".

    If only I knew...I would have lied in the ICC forum and said he'd scored three triple hundreds and once batted all five days or something.

    Can see PEWS attempting to murder you in the very near future.

    Why - its all well and good asking a guy pleasantries, but finding out something new about the guy; that's what probing questions are all about

    No naughties for that, thankyouverymuch.
