    Body-ma-line.

    Keeping up with my insanely high number of recent Off-topic threads...

    For my major history assessment this year, I`m doing stuff on the History of Cricket and Bodyline. This includes a video that I`m making on Sunday. In the video, my friends and I describe the basic rules of cricket, different bowling styles and Bodyline bowling.

    1) Is there anything in particular you think should be included?

    2) Help me with my assignment by posting helpful bits of information below. Ta.


    All help much appreciated, thanks.

    Wikipedia is excellent for cricket rules. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cricket

    There is the MCC laws which may be referred to if you want to go into the specifics..

    Regarding types of bowling styles :

    Fast (categorised into different degrees like fast, fast medium ,medium fast etc)
    Swing
    Leg Spin
    Off spin
    Wrist spin
    Chinaman

    What I can think for the moment

    Spot on.

    I`ve got my fast, fast-medium, medium-fast, medium, leg-spin and off-spin bowlers. Good variety of friends eh?
    Yeah, no left-armers, but my right-handed chums will suffice.

    Websites like that please me mucho. Thanks a lot. Much of the same would be awesome.

    I think this is the best site for Bodyline info:

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    If there aren't flesh wounds and broken facial bones you haven't demonstrated bodyline well enough tbh.

    Well, it`s pretty much done. The filming that is.

    And it`s AWESOME!

    Some very funny stuff, I consider myself a 'Videoing Expert' but I`m slightly biased, eh?

    Still got some stuff to film on thursday (during the Athletics Carny ) but it`s all good. Prison Song never sounded so cool.
