    I really dont think its much to expect somebody to spell words that are easy such as 'cricket'. Especially in thread titles, to make a mistake there is extremely careless.

    It's about cricket, however there is no need to use txt language, abbreviations and other *******isations of English here. Especially random apostrophes.

    There is no character limit, and also, if you write your posts accurately, they tend to *look* like they make more sense. Take Kenny for instance, first impressions are good.. then you actually read the content...

    It's also not to much to ask to correctly capitalise?

    I'm afraid I'm going to have to go along with Neil here. If you write correctly and concisely, there will be less misunderstandings.

    Grammar might not have anything to do with sports, but it has everything to do with discussion. And this, my friend, is a cricket discussion place.

    i don't agree with you sudeep.ALTHOUGH i understand it is a cricket discussion but the discussion has to be on the topic and the topic is about cricket not grammar.
