    I'd retained it subconsciously I think. I remember finding it funny and Simpsonesque.

    I have memories of a interstate limited overs competition some years ago in Australia where the teams when fielding wore shorts. I think Merv Hughes was still running around at the time playing for the Canberra Comets, or whatever they were called?

    I have some questions.
    In bowling, is a ball more than 2 bounds legal or illegal?

    Balls are allowed to bounce twice, but are less obvious if you are wearing trousers.

    Quick answers to your questions are that willow is used. I don't know what you mean by condensed bats.

    As for baseball bats cbf answering.
    Condensed bats were used in Baseball several decades ago. At that time condensed bats (strongly pressured and harder than normal ones) were believed to have more repellent force.

    Well I preferred condensed milk, and I reckon along with irn bru, that is the greatest momentum your country possesses.

    If cricket bats were like baseball bats, every batsman would play like Matthew Wade

    In certain parts of the subcontinent they are made from fixed wood, and are highly corruptible.

    4 ply. Similar to a good skateboard in terms of grinding ability and flexion.

    Icon11 World Cricket League and World Test Championship

    I propose changes about the World Cricket League.
    Firstly, in the WCL, every team meets twice. So, the WCL should be done on the Home & Away basis (currently not).
    The toss must be abolished--the away side should have the right to choose batting first or fielding first.

    And I propose a new international comptetition--World Test Championship. Since 10 countries have Test status now, every team meets twice on the Home & Away basis in 2 years. So 18 games are played. The toss must be abolished--the away side should have the right to choose batting first or fielding first.
    By using DL Method Calculator, draw should be abolished.

    Any opinion?
