    Advice Needed, where to begin knowing about cricket again

    If you were once interested in cricket, cricketweb and all this stuff, but then you forgot it, and didn't play cricket for a long time, then what is the best way of getting used to cricket again?

    I want to get in touch with this game once again.

    Following this forum is a good start and might help you to re-remember stuff you'd forgotten about whilst giving you knowledge you never had. Simply watching cricket would also help given the match you'd be watching but also commentators talking about the players. 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).

    I too fell out with cricket briefly. What got me back into it was reading on Cricinfo, stalking the ATG thread and getting familiar with the cricketers who came to the fore whilst I wasn't paying attention eg the **** leg spinner who bowled a long hop and 2 full tosses each over suddenly transforming into Bradman lite.

    Is it true that you read the whole ATG thread?

    From start to end. All of it. I had a whole month off from school before my finals. Filled me in on a lot of stuff. It was actually very insightful and the drama kept me hooked.

    As a toddler, I got to cricket by watching Chanderpaul's debut at Bourda...so many year ago.
