    Aside from PF making a complete tit of himself, it's an interesting point. We can do meetups... next summer, let's try getting 11 of us together, finding a reasonable central venue, and having the Cricket Web XI for real.

    Worth setting up the CW UK 2007 Meetup Thread?

    I'm definitely in if it's Central (Worcester, Birmingham, Evesham, Banbury, Oxford areas).

    Closest we get to playing real cricket is at our annual(ish) meetups in the UK - eight or nine of us played Kwik Cricket at Edgbaston (okay, not at Edgbaston, outside Edgbaston) last summer. The strongest of us are fringe county players or overrated Dutch youth Internationals who get dismissed by girls and heaved through cow corner by tailenders.

    shush.

    This was kinda funny, but not nearly as funny as that Indian or Pakistani kid who applied for an off-season Club Cricket side in the US with a resume and so on.

    When I mention it to my wife, she just pats me on the head, smiles in a funny way and says "Its ok, I still love you"

    Its fun, but certainly not easy to justify and explain
