    Icon3 People You Knew And Ended Up Being Really Good Players

    Is there anyone you knew (personally) who ended up playing first class cricket, or big bash, or even test cricket/one dayers/ twenty20.

    Or did you know a friend that had a connection with players.

    Just wanting to see if there are people out their who wanna share

    John Dyson attended my high school (many, many years before me, obviously).

    Stuart Clark has been spotted at our cricket club's in2cricket program; I've coached his son through it. Apparently Steven Smith's sister's child also attends, but, disappointingly, as yet there has been no sighting of the People's Champ.

    My girlfriend's best friend's cousin is currently playing First Grade and on the fringes of NSW selection. Went on tour to SL with Steve O'Keefe for a Cricket NSW spin program.

    A guy in my park team played First Grade and NSW U/17s when he was younger. Opened the bowling and pushed Wayne Holdsworth into the wind; he was quick. Maintains the most pointless thing he has ever done was to bowl at Stuart Law.

    One of the guys from my group of friends at school lost to Tassy in the shield final this year. One of my finest moments was bowling him behind his pads once, generally though he used to take my bowling apart.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    My coach as a kid turned out to be Greg Dyer. No idea what he was doing with the nerve of showing his face in this country.
