    Wouldn't fit for different reasons I expect, being able to post is one.

    Hi, I am G.I.Joe. I'm a real hero, and I love nothing more than thwarting yet another evil Cobra scheme. When everybody else fails, I don't.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    May as well join the spirit... I'm Rich, I signed-up for CW in 2003 aged just about 18, when I still used my full name, which I now don't really like at all as it sounds hopelessly over-formal; as of this post I'm (sadly) 24.

    I've been playing with cricket-bats (of increasing size) and balls (initially tennis-balls, then orange KwikCricket windballs, then hardballs) since I could stand, have never been all that good but am able to hold my own in a serious game of organised eleven-a-side cricket, for which I'm grateful. My Dad's a huge fan of the game as well, and was always a better player than me - in fact was right up to the 2009 season after which he's finally retired at the age of 56. My first memories are of watching the 1991/92 World Cup with him, as England were beaten in the final by Pakistan, and I watched on and off, more and more, until 1998 when England played South Africa and I was completely captivated, and also came to love those two teams. I've followed both of them avidly since then, and since 2000 I've also followed just about all Test teams to some degree, as well as domestic cricket in England and to some small degree Australia and South Africa.

    CricketWeb forum is easily the best online cricket-discussing community around in my experience - well ahead of the pack.

    I'm Martyn, but you can call me GIMH. I'm not as old as I look but older than I act. Hi.

    Some things that will help you understand my posts - I am unashamedly biased to the England cricket team, Andrew Flintoff walks on water and I love world-class all-rounders hence the Broad/Swann love in my signature who are unmatched amongst their peers. Aside from cricket I enjoy football, you'll also catch me stalking the wrestling thread if you venture outside of CC.

    I'm four_or_six, I've always been surrounded by cricket as long as I can remember, TV, radio, watching and playing club cricket. I used to play a bit but stopped when I was at uni, and I wasn't really that good. I just liked keeping wicket. So now I just watch and bore people to death waffling on about it.

    And I'm a girl, but don't hold it against me.

    I'm sure you're not really, but I guess you have good reason for not wanting to tell us your real name.

    HI.

    I am Swaranjeet.

    I wish i could say like Richard, "I'm (sadly) 24" but even my sons haven't been able to say that for a decade

    I am going to be grandfather this September (high time I would say)

    Cricket (except for T-20 which I enjoy as i do cartoon movies) and my dogs are the two loves of my life.

    Oh fair enough, didn't pick up on her misspelling, Just saw you ask the question with the correct spelling and took it to be a question about deed poll, rather than questioning over the spelling of deed pole. Apologies.
