    CW Home Grounds

    The CW XI Home Grounds are the CW Oval and Death Valley Park.

    The Cricket Web 'A' team will now be playing all their home games at the Oval, which is a massive facility. The 'B' team will be playing at the Park, but I think that the name should be changed to something with more class.

    As such, I'm open to suggestions for the name change.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    The only retirees are Tamara and Bronocoman. Broncoman retired from ODI cricket and Tamara retired from all forms.

    Neil, what has Wilkinson done for cricket?

    Then we might as well shoot ourselves considering the bowling attack that will remain.

    ???

    Why did Broncoman retire?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Broncoman retired from ODI cricket due to frustration (or just for a publicity stunt :P).

    I suggest the ground names remain as they are a historical symbol to CWBCC culture.. it all originated from the past between games between 2 rival teams CW XI captained by Langeveldt and CW Premiers captained by lord of darkness
    the oval is the original ground of the CW XI's and Death Valley was the home ground of the Prems, named because the Prems would slaughter the XI's at that park.. after the end of the series.. all rivalry laid to rest.. the 2 teams drank and partied hard.. and the next morning langeveldt and lord signed a joint agreement to make one united team the CW (Prem) XI..

    so let the history remain !

    I disagree. Yes it may be history, but I wouldn't want to play in a ground called Death Valley. Perhaps we can shorten it to DV Park.

    The Devil Ducky Park

    And

    The Nixon Oval

    Named after the most important man and most important duck in CW
    Or something.

    Actually I like the Nixon Oval idea. Except it would have to be Nixon Stadium or Park as we already have CW Oval
