    Google for me too, I was looking up some obscure stat (that I don't recall) & I was directed here.

    Think my first post was something to do with Murali's action!
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    In 2002 I got an MSN message from a guy called Stanley (Orin) from Guyana I think.. He told me about this newish forum called Cricketweb.. Sod that I thought..

    Then I got myself banned from cricketgames.com, turns out that was a good thing!

    Search -> Advanced Search -> Sort by last posting date in Ascending Order, search for your own username.

    Can't quite remember tbh - think I was looking for a forum to ask questions about the game...
