    Kippax's Firebirds and Wellington Club Cricket Thread

    Contributing four players to the latest New Zealand U19 squad suggests I should really start overseeing an earnest little ****er of a thread like this. That lengthy period of adopting an 'everything's a big self-sabotaging, self-parodying joke' mentality with Wellington is potentially over.

    All the stuff that I occasionally refrain from posting in the NZ domestic thread (due to it being of localised and niche interest), I'll post in here.
    Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

    I should do this for NSW. But I also should have done this for Zimbabwe for several years and haven't, so there's that. Maybe Brockley should do this for NSW.

    More on topic: I didn't know Peter Connell was back/still playing NZ club cricket. Looks like he did well too.

    Current scorecard from the T20 final, taking place at the Basin Reserve right now. You'll see Lance Dry, if you can get there.

    Jamie Gibson looks to be a proper all-rounder!

    CW needs more threads dedicated to cricket that no one would care about if not for said thread.

    Is Hamish Bennett still alive?

    Sad to see the mighty Taita not featuring at the Basin in the final this year.

    Club cricket equivalent of a test. First innings used to be restricted to 55 overs when I played, not sure if that’s still the case (I was a few grades down also).

    Sounds weird but I actually totally agree. You copped a lot of **** for the amount of posts you made in the Blitz thread, and I copped some **** for stickying it too, but it looks such it brought a potentially awesome asset (Cutler) to the forum.

    "If you build it, they will come", as they say.

    Not to mention its great when people who are bored and free are browsing the forum, stumble in, and suddenly find themselves watch/following a game they would never have even heard of otherwise.
