    I'm Jake, I'm 14, been into Cricket since 2004. The 2005 Ashes is my earliest memory of cricket, possibly my worst, to go with 2009. I love Cricket, especially the Ashes. I've been into rugby league for around the same time as Cricket, but recently, this year, I've extended my sports to Golf, Soccer and AFL.

    I am Shri from Chennai, India. Got into cricket even before I properly learned to run as a kid. Grew up in a joint family for my first few years. Had a lot of elder cousin brothers who started using me as the designated ball boy right from when I was around 5 years old.

    Couldn't bowl or bat with them till I was around 9 as I had apparently not 'graduated' to that level. Quickly went on to become the best offie in my family in another 6 years. Couldn't bat if my life depended on it when I was around 12. Chris Martin was Bradman compared to me at that stage with the bat. That was when I went out with my brothers to play a 'real' game that actually involved a cricket ball(used to play using tennis and rubber balls before that) as the spinner in the side wasn't available - was a bet match btw.

    Couldn't bowl well in that game and kept moving away when the ball came my way when fielding. The opposition started treating me as a joke and started bowling very very slow while mocking me. Scored fifteen runs in that game but batted for 5 hours. Made them bowl fast at me in frustration and made them tire out. The batsmen at the other end scored well and we won in the end(with me still unbeaten on 15!). Started attending cricket camps from then on and became a decent all round spin bowler when I was about 15. Became the main all rounder(i.e 12th man ) in the school side when I finished high school. That innings of 15 was what got me into cricket seriously. Still have the best defense in the place where I live.

    There, the end of a totally unimportant story. Every one has wrote something, I will do it too, what the hell?
    I am proud of this post.

    That sounds an epic 15no, Shri. If you've since become an all rounder I imagine your highest score has since improved?

    Great story, Shri.

    I was shoehorned into a wicket-keeper/opening batsman role in my school team because I lacked the skills to be a specialist batsman or a bowler, and my mates didn't have the heart not to pick me. In the nets, I was a real stonewaller and used to be referred to as a "Strokeless Wonder". Unfortunately, I was given out LBW on the first ball when I went out to open in an actual inter-school match. After that, I was demoted down the order. I took a couple of good catches and made a stumping though, and we won that match, so all was forgiven.

    yeah, I actually have met him on a couple of occassions. So was wondering if I had stumbled on to him on a cricket forum..



    Honestly though, couldn't imagine him making those great posts on all the greats, for some reason.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    ha ha. will tell him the next time i run into him. i dont think he is into cricket history even if he follows the game like most.

    actually, i have worked under only two guys in movies - one is a famous director and he is cricket diehard. in fact he was caught on tv watching last weekend's CSK home game in IPL; the other one is the most acclaimed actor we have and he hates cricket. i was his exec producer when sachin overtook lara's aggregate two years ago. i quickly organized a party in his office to mark the occasion. but he barely stayed for a few minutes before leaving us cricket nuts to continue with the celebrations. will write in detail sometime later in OT about movie guys and their cricket connection.

    Hmm.....Based on that evidence and some investigation: Did you recently direct a telugu movie?

    mate.. u gotta understand what you are committing. Quite a few here seem to be from Chennai..


    And quite frankly, I have no clue as to the first one coz I haven't seen any game live recently. And for the second one, I have a guess that it is a certain guy from Alwarpet..

    actually both are from alwarpet. and both are equally big. so not too difficult to guess for real chennaiites.
