    Quality user name. Having a pissed mate pass out on his own curry always a sophisticated moment in the evening.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Surrey is the finest County of all - and can boast the best all time County XI

    The name is in honour of someone who did it, I kid you not, without fail.

    Always paid though - never ate a mouthful

    Hello Everyone,
    I started watching cricket in 99 world cup mainly due to Shoaib Akhtar.I have been following this site for 5+ years, but just started posting. I support Pakistan and used to support Australia mostly because of Mark Waugh, Mcgrath and Ponting.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Hello

    I've just started playing cricket again at the age of 24 (I haven't played since I was 11). I don't think anyone was more disappointed than my Mum when I gave up the sport (my username isn't just a cricket reference - they're my initials).

    I'm finding this site a brilliant source of information being someone who knows very little about the sport, so cheers everyone.

    similar story to the guy before. I've found this site a great source for random opinions, will hopefully get to give my own 2 cents in the near future

    Hey people

    From Australia, new to this forum, but it seems like a good one to have stumbled in to.

    Love cricket, and love cricket history. I read a lot of books on cricket, and enjoy discussing/debating the merits of players!

    Favourite former players are Stan McCabe, Archie Jackson, Doug Walters, Keith Miller, Neil Harvey and Mark Waugh.

    Not a bad list that Monk - bit Aussie based but hey

    I actually had the pleasure of meeting Neil Harvey at the Kennington Oval c1980 (Old England v Old Aus match). he invited myself and a friend into the changing room to meet Ray Lindwall. Utter gents the pair of them.

    Wow, what an amazing experience. Did they tell you any tales? I really hope I run into Harvey, Morris or Davidson (they are only a few) before their times are up, but I have no idea how it would happen. It'd be great to interview them too (I am studying journalism).
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    We were just standing outside the Away dressing room when Neil came to the door. He gave us his autograph and we chatted for a couple of minutes and the he said "Ray's in here, d'you want to come in and meet Ray?"

    Silly question.

    Ray was just out of the shower but we sat there for about half an hour (before WE had to go) just chatting away like old pals. I gave Ray Lindwall some advice on bowling the outswinger() but I don't recall any stories (it was a long time ago) but just a great general cricket chat.

    The next year it was Old Rest of the World and Gary Sobers came to the door. Unfortunately, despite us being very polite he was very rude.

    A few years ago a friend of mine ran into Dennis Lillee and sat and chatted with him for a whiile. Said he was a really good bloke.
