    I heartily concur with that idea. I also believe patience and timing are key. Treat it like a test match and be prepared to bat out the day. If you want to become one of the best you have to eliminate any early movements.

    If only Skyman knew the ****s who frequent CW, he would not have posted this game.

    It seems Coco and Benchy like playing the game with each other.

    Nah mate, we can't play together. We tried it once, but while I'm a test match guy Benchy could only last long enough for a Twenty20 game.

    Poor Benchy. There's no fun in getting out prematurely.

    Here is the method to play:
    (x) You need a healthy hand and some friends to play.Here I will explain about a match between two players.
    (x) First, the players have to toss a coin and the toss winner should decide whether to bat or bowl.
    (x)Then, Both the players should use a single hand and show a number using their fingers, both at the same moment.
    [ show one finger for one run
    2 fing - 2 runs
    3 fing - 3 runs
    4 fing four runs
    5 fing. - 5 runs
    thumb finger - 6 runs ]
    (x)If both the players show the same number of runs using their hands, the batting person is declared out.
    (x)If both of them show different numbers, then the runs are counted for the batsman.
    (x)This continues until the batsman loses three(or four or five) wickets or the number of overs is finished.(eg, keep 5 overs)
    (x) Then the person who bowled early will bat. If the batter loses all his wickets before reaching the target, the person who batted earlier wins. If he reaches the target, the second person wins!
    If you have doubts regarding it, post it.
    Hope everyone enjoys playing it

    Actually I do remember playing this on several occasions over the years now I've had a think about it. The game inevitably ended with me pulling it straight into my girlfriend's hands.

    It weighs 4 pounds though. It's all about the width, I find myself hitting the sweet spot far more often.

    You can play with it in the cover. Wont feel quite as good when you hit it, but will prevent those hard to remove red spots from appearing on the blade.
