    We provide a fresh, twisted take on the game we all love. If world cricket is what you love then come and pay us a visit this summer as we'll literally be LIVING every breath of the Ashes and Twenty20 World Cup..

    "Ricky Ponting, fact fans, is from Tasmania. It's like Australia's Isle of Man. Two weeks in Leicester is like a dream cultural break for the Aussie captain."

    I didn't see a link to a quote in the opening post - which is pretty much common CW currency - so I was rather baffled.

    Ah, don't have a link or anything, but he said something along the lines of, "I hope we don't go out because then we'll be stuck in Leicester for two weeks"

    O I C.

    Shouldn't this really be in the Twenty20 World Thingy forum, or the Ashes one?

    Or, possibly more appropriately, CH?

    Yeah, it does. Bloody wonderful city I have to say. Would move there tomroow tbh, especially with the Ashes just around the corner.

    It's awfully crowded though. Not very roomy.
