    Icon9 Gone..!

    I'll be gone for about around 2 months to Kuwait.. as my grandad is in a very very serious condition an all (seems like a very tragic month in my real life).. and it looks to be his last days.. its sad nonetheless and im the closest grandson to him.. so rather than ballin my eyes out.. im going to try and make the most of the time i have with him.. He's made his condition worse by not eating anything for the past few days and not taking medicines and making a fuss by not going by the doctors advice.. he is of age (79) but its mainly become so bad because his 2 elder brothers passed away in a short space of time a few weeks ago.
    My flight is for tonight along with my lil brah.. and i should be back in 2 months around.. ill try and keep a check once a while if its possible. Im sure cricketweb would be a whole new world again when im back.
    Unfortunate that i cant treat this trip anything like a holiday..
    And if anyone wants to mail me regarding general stuff / cw cricket (cwxi) etc.. you know where to catch me.. reuben at globe dot net dot nz

    Btw Somerset.. if you have the time could you please carry on the Super 12 Tipping comp ..

    Best of Luck to everyone with their exams and whatever y'all upto.

    Really nice that you want to be with and take care of your grandad - hope you two will have a good last time together. I won't say hurry back because I know you've got more important things than CW at the moment.

    Terrible news - at times like this family is the only thing that matters.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.
