    For me, the best feeling in cricket is to fool a batsman for his wicket.

    We have metal advertising hoardings around the deep cover boundary.. Lovely to shimmy down the pitch to the quick and send the ball scooting along the ground, and the clatter against the boards is so satisfying..

    For me the best feeling is defeating a batsman in flight and clean bowling him while bowling a classical leg spin bowl pitched just between middle and off at a good length with a good purchase off the track.

    Hit a good defensive stroke with the action like that of dravid with the loop he has is also highly satisfying.

    Also hittin the ball just below the manufacturer's sticker for a powerful straight drive.

    Also watching cricket on a cold winter evening in a near empty cricket stadium with a good cup of tea in hand. I thought of doing that tomorrow for the final day of the England-India under 19 test but with just 4 wickets to go for an Indian victory, I have dropped the plan of going and chances of watching good cricket is fairly minimum now.

    You won't be testing them out Neil because

    1) They are at my club
    2) You can't bat, remember?

    However, a big enough hit over mid wicket can put the ball through some girls bedroom windows..

    The best felling for me would be at the end of the day finishing my ten overs(off spin) taking atleast 2 wickets maximum.Doing a good job while fielding and batting well at number 4.

    I dont know if alot of you do this but i put alot of effort in every thing while i am in that ground.
    Bob is very insane stay away from him

    Nah, I've been so laissez faire with my life.. its a wonder I can even get out of my own bed any more..

    I have only missed one cricket practice, for junior school, secondary school, college and three different clubs, in my entire lifetime.. And that was because I was in Germany.. As fate would have it, one of the guys waiting to bowl on that occasion ended up in the back of an Ambulance after being hit in the side of the head
