    “I too fell out with cricket”, says the world-weary and life-fatigued 16 year old, as he pens volume three of his autobiography.

    I was willing to write it, but as it was interesting to everyone in the beginning, but later the repititon in my poems made them boring for most of the users. I fear if they will dislike them again.

I'm trying to think of the biggest events in recent years so as you could form a mental timeline. Maybe the Australian ball tampering saga, the rise England in limited overs cricket, test status being given to Ireland and Afghanistan and the general rise of Afghanistan (think their Asia Cup performances, performances at international tournaments, leg spinner Rashid Khan being so good).
    All this is new to me, thankyou for sharing.

    Even the most casual of cricket fans should know that South Africa never actually win anything

    It's time for an honest opinion Dawood.

    In the beginning nobody in CW found your poems interesting, rather they were making fun of you, a classic case of online ragging. Later they were not bored of your poems, instead they ran out of options to derive entertainment from you and found your poems annoying.

    I neither hate nor like your poems Dawood, but it's my advice that you share such things with people who genuinely love you in the real world and not internet strangers. And since you live in Pakistan, I'm pretty sure you have a strong social support in families and friends, share it with them.

    Speak for yourself, I think Dawood's poems were quite good and the effort he put into them was impressive and definitely worth it

    Kirkut, I appreciate that you're trying to give some guidance to Dawood here, and that your sentiment is well natured. Nevertheless, you shouldn't purport to speak for CW and its members.

    That's my job.

    I believe Red Hill is referring to this

    Of all the posts I've seen on this forum, I think that poem might actually have received the most likes
