Welcome new people
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
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

Hmm, more or less
Proudly supporting the world's no 1 spin bowler Rangana Herath and the mighty Sri Lankans!
I even made a domestic thread
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.

Vimes tells it how it is:
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

Welcome mate. Like the user name and look forward to some posts of the same ilk.
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.
