    I aint got a lot of sporting posts in me , so you might not see me much, but I'll be having a good lurk .

    I'm an England fan but a cricket lover first . I'd rather lose a great game than win a bad one . I follow a bit of County , a bit of 20/20 foreign and domestic , but really it's the International stuff that moves me , especially the Test Cricket . I have a very soft spot for the World Cup , even though England are so damn bad at it .
    Excellent. You'll fit right in.

    Joined today. I am probably older than most of you. Some of my earliest cricketing memories are of Gavaskar trying to win the 1979 Oval test for India. That should date me pretty well. A die hard fan of test cricket who laments the declining popularity of the format. Currently live in the US. Other preoccupations besides cricket include Jazz and recreational biking and recreational mathematics.

    Good morning everyone,

    My name is Nick (if you couldn't guess) and I've been a huge cricket lover since 1973, when I witnessed a young, dashing batsman from my own County, called Frank Hayes, make a century on debut for England. The next day, my Dad bought me a little set of bat,ball and stumps, and a lifelong passion was born (sadly, as a schoolboy and local club player, I was very, very average). I support 4 teams, Lancashire, England, and whoever's playing Yorkshire and Australia.

    My preference is first class cricket whether it be Test matches, or the 4 day County Championship games. I don't mind the 50-over Tip N Run form of the game, and enjoyed the recent World Cup; but I have to admit to having little interest in the Crash and Bash format. Although I understand the financial and promotional advantages of it, for me, the twenty over game lacks the subtlety and complexity of the longer formats, and just reduces cricket to its base level.

    I look forward to debating this great game with you all.

    Welcome to the forum, Nick.

    What are your thoughts on the Hundred?
    Symmetry is beauty, beauty is truth. Breaking symmetry means breaking truth.

    I don't see the point of it ...... The current 3 formats of the game are quite different from each other, and will appeal to different people for different reasons. If the idea of the Hundred is to attract new fans to the game, I don't see what it offers that a further 20 deliveries per team doesn't.

    The Hundred appears to be inventing a "new" format, just for the sake of it.

    How can you support England and Australia at the same time?

    Hi, I'm from Italy, not a cricket nation at all.
    My first memories of this sport go back to when some Pakistani and Indian lads rented our local Baseball field to play cricket.
    I never heard of it before.
    After 2 decades, I started occasionaly watching IPL and T20 WC, some ODIs.
    This summer I watched the ODI WC and I found it amazing, I was hooked, the final was jawdropping
    Then I watched all of the Ashes, that 3rd test, that last wicket pair, that tension...wow, one of the best moment of sport I have ever watched.

    Still have to figure out all those names (gully, third man, silly point...etc etc...).

    Yes, it's simpler than test, not only a lot shorter, lot of boundaries and wickets falling etc etc...
    For a complete newcomer like me, it was instrumental to learn the basics without getting bored and go on.

    I suspect I would have never ever watched cricket again if I had started with a test like the 2nd India-SA, 2 months ago.
