    Hi all,

    I've checked out this forum over the last couple days, and other than a few negative comments about Our Jimmy (personal God) and Unkie Bumble (I just love his mad ravings) I think I've stumbled across a decent bunch of cricket fans. I look forward to sharing my utterly unqualified opinions with you all.

    Cricket background - played through school as a seamer, and batted at 11. In fact, I would say I made Chris Martin look like an all-rounder. As I moved in to club cricket, my shoulder didn't seem to enjoy me bowling at full tilt, so I gave leg-spin a whirl, with mixed success. Stopped playing at 24, when a combination of a) marriage, child, work got in the way and b) I suddenly stopped being able to complete an over in less than seven balls. Now 29, and ALMOST considering a second go at it all, but I can't see myself being much use!

    Anyhooo... Long intro over. Ciao

    Haha other than a strong tendency to look thoroughly pissed off with the world at all times, I can assure you we are quite different people.

    Evening all.

    I've just signed up as I was on the look out for a fairly active cricket forum to discuss county cricket as well as the internationals.

    I'm from England and old enough to drink in the US. I don't live in a county that has a major cricket team but my allegiance has tended to be towards Essex.

    Hey all, been lurking here for a few months and finally decided to sign up. My interest in cricket really started in around 1995-96 when Tendulkar and Lara were reigning supreme. Tried to become a batsman, but kept getting bowled more frequently than Dravid on his last tour to Australia, switched to leg spin, lets just say it was ugly on many levels....then tried to become a fast bowling six hitting all rounder ala Kapil, Botham etc.
    Finally realised I wasnt any good at playing cricket at all and decided to focus my efforts elsewhere. Nonetheless, I retain my love for the sport and still make time to sit down and watch a whole session of play from time to time. Hopefully will be a regular poster in the near future

    Hi all,

    I've been a lurker on here for a while, and thought I should register. I have played cricket for a number of years, even in winter I used to play 'World Cup Cricket' board game with my father.

    Now I'm involved with Sports Insurance and the ECB Insurance in the UK. I won't be selling the insurance, but if you do have any questions on it please drop me a message.
