    After years of trying

    Last night at Indoor Cricket I had a game off so I decided to bowl in one of the courts for about 40 minutes, anyway I decided to bowl some leggies and for the first time in years I was actually able to land the ball on the pitch and was able to hit the stumps and able to turn the ball quite a lot. In fact I did it left and right handed (I am right handed though).

    Still I felt rather proud of myself :biggrin:

    About four years ago I went onto the hills and had exactly the same experience bowling on a cut wicket in the middle of nowhere...

    Ive now all but been chucked out of the first team at college and am bowling medium pace at rugby players as a break from going to the gym with them...

    Best of luck with your newfound discovery, but its very hard to crack...

    i think hes already told you what happened when he said
    "Ive now all but been CHUCKED out of the first team at college"

    you need to take little cues like these.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Thought this was the cricket humour thread? Well anyway good stuff. Are you ambidextrous?

    Tell me about it!
    Yesterday I was on the verge of giving the leggies up for a while. I changed my grip and bowled the best I ever have!

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.
