    Left out of Cricket?

    Left hander's are on the verge of being banned from International cricket:

    New proposals mean lefties are in danger of missing the World Cup | Mike Selvey | Sport | The Guardian
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Damn you, it took me a while of reading the article before realising, but my excuse is was it was only just after midnight - was hoping it'd catch a few people out on here though.

    There was a great one in Cricinfo around a decade back which IIRC claimed that statisticians had found a way to adjust Bradman's average to 100 after all. Got me quite excited for a few moments.

    In March 2010, the band announced plans to launch a re-working of MmmBop - entitled 'RavBop' in tribute to Indian Premier League star Ravi Bopara.
    Come on now, who's responsible for that?

    Although actually it's more like or
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
