    Your point being, you wouldn't pay for someone who ends up unconscious, suffering a fractured skull go in an ambulance to hospital?

    hahaha, brilliant I guess that would be as a result of being from the South of England and paying for his education, right?

    If it's a classic leg spinner, surely it'll miss the stumps if pitched there?
    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.

    That would mean that you have to bowl one to be hit along the ground rather than your usual "hit me for 6" pies though.

    The only way Pickup will be testing the ad boards out is when he bowls...

    One must wonder why you would dig this up after 3 months to compliment a remark made by Rich that was already implied by Marc.

    Although bowling a batsman and middling a coverdrive are great feelings nothing beats the feeling of pulling off a very close victory from nowhere.

    Depends how wide on the crease he bowled. But even then, it wouldn't turn much if it still hit after pitching on middle and off - probably little more than straightened.
