    Hi CW members,

    I am Raghav Suryadevara from Hyderabad in India. I am 25 yrs of age; work for a software firm in Hyderabad, India - a die hard fan of Black Caps Cricket. Love the place & atmosphere at CW. I joined CW in 2006.

    Started playing cricket when I was 10 yrs old, still play cricket during weekends. Supported Indian cricket team till 2000 (until the match fixing scandal broke out). Since 2000, it was great fun supporting Black Caps cricket & Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL...I am big fan of Dan Vettori, Cairns, Fleming, Dravid & Kumble. Check my signature for more

    Had been running a blackcaps fan blog for a while out of passion towards NZ cricket - it is blackcapsfan.blogspot.com . You can also follow me on twitter - twitter.com/BlackcapsFan

    My name is Tom. I live in London but am pining for the fjords - well, Hove actually. I have been a cricket fan my whole life (36 and accelerating), supporting Sussex and England.

    As a kid I bowled fast in my mind (ie loopy slow medium in reality). Aged 14 I switched to legspin. My trademark on the field is being irritating and over-aggressive, and have always taken particular pleasure in dismissing batsmen through putting them off and/or making them angry. My batting is based on firm foundations of agricultural swishing and cowardice. I have no talent. However I did once score 49, 78 and 33 in successive games and mentally relive those innings every day of my life.

    I spend far too much of my time on CW. It's high time I got a life, or at least got out more. But as Burgey has said the international perspective here is terrific. Lots of extraordinarily knowledgeable people here too.

    Hi,

    I am Pratyush, 27, from Kolkata, India. I absolutely love cricket. I watched my first match at the Eden Gardens in 1991. I have photographs holding a cricket bat from much earlier. Ever since I have been aware, I have known about cricket. Used to play loads and now I am playing again with my eight year old cousin.

    I love test cricket and first class cricket and am a huge supporter of cricket. Doesn't matter which team is playing. As long as there is cricket going on, whether T20 cricket, ODI Cricket, Gully Cricket, I'll watch it.

    This is a great forum with loads of excellent members. Newbies, feel your way in, feel comfortable and I am sure you will have a wonderful time. A big welcome to the newer guys like VCS and Spark.

    Well, I suppose it's worth adding my life story to the mix.

    The name is obvious, I'm 24 (which no one ever believes) and I will have been here for eight years when next Thursday rolls around, which is either a depressing indictment of my lack of social life, or a tribute to the quality of the forum and my addiction to this wonderful/stupid game.

    In those eight years I have (I think) progressed from a naive, idealistic socialist teenager into an sarcastic and cynical prep school teacher. Red flags are for matadors and that's that. I wasted my childhood and have very little to show for the years before 1999 beyond the ability to touchtype and a knowledge of more stats than is healthy (plus a memory of Gooch's 333 at Lord's) . As a result, I have been playing catch-up to real life since I averaged 0.80 with the bat in that summer of Sixpence None The Richer.

    I am now an occasionally serviceable batsman, capable of either looking solid and scoring no runs for extended periods of time, or looking horrific and fluking runs all around the ground except for the area I wanted to hit the ball in. I'm also keeping wicket having pretty much given away leg spin completely, and am similarly capable of moments of brilliance mixed with abject crap. I'm presently clubless as playing has taken rather a back seat in the last few years to coaching, where I'm now working with County squads in Oxfordshire.

    Hi all, I am Bharani from Chennai, India.. Work for a software firm here. Am hoping to be at Columbus, Indiana, US by the end of this month..


    I love cricket. The tied test in Chennai was the first one I watched and coming from a cricket crazy family, it was obviously the only sport I ever played with any degree of seriousness.. Been following cricket since that time when I was 5 or 6.. I am 26 now and I love CW.. Bar the occassional stupid comments, it is easily the best place to talk cricket on the internet for me... Really been a great time here and getting to know blokes like SJS, Jack, Pratyush, Sanz, Richard, Ikki and so many others (even if only through internet) was awesome... And I am sure any new guys here will enjoy the experience...
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    My Name is Gaz and I'm from Lancashire. I am 28 years young and started watching cricket around 92, however I do remember one or two cricket events before then as well.

    I play a bit of local and work league cricket, in which my prefered opponent is a 20 stone pensioner with failing eyesight and arthritis in both arms.

    I signed last month but first read the forum after a Botham v Imran Khan debate with a co-worker a year ago. I googled it and a very interesting thread from this site was the first hit.

    My wife and I plan to move to Australia in the next 2 years.
