    Pratters infamously demanded that teenage forumer coverdriveman supply a picture. Went on for ages in one of the threads here; it was really creepy.

    How ironic that you post a picture of a bad-looking person up given you've admitted yourself that you're not a looker...

    He was actually taking the piss out of Daemon there, not you, because Finnigan got done for child porn. But it is indeed still ironic because Eloquentia asked you to post a video over on CS.

    Why would you stand there?

    If someone's bowling at 100-105, and you're not standing up, the ball will carry properly 7-8 metres through on English wickets - standing 2-3 metres back is still virtually on the cut strip, gives you no reaction times, and negates stumpings.

    A lot of the blokes I come up against are experience lads (35+) who like to stand out of their crease to seamers. Standing further back means by the time I flick it back at the stumps, they're back in. I'll get a stumping a fornight off seamers by standing closer than I should just to do that.

    Also, the ball doesn't carry that much - surprising given what you've said about English pitches and I'm in Australia. I don't struggling being that close... maybe it's just me, I guess. It's probably 4-5 metres back against the 105-110 lads, to be fair and 2-3 to the slightly slower ones.

    Maybe they're just even slower than you think.

    Haha, nah. One of the fellas I've been netting with for years & has been clocked at 120. He's not played for a coupla years and remodeled his action hence the conservative estimate of 105 but I reckon it could be higher.

    Unlike Prez - there is speed gun evidence here heh.
