    Anyone in Brisbane?

    Anyone in Brisbane keen for a couple of games of cricket this week (Tuesday/Wednesday). I'm over for a cricket tour, but a couple of guys have pulled out. There'll be some beers in it for you if you can help out. It's at Toombul District Cricket Club, Nundah. Any standard welcome.

    Daniel Vettori Retires from Internationals

    BBC Sport - New Zealand's Daniel Vettori retires from international cricket Not a surprise in any way, but it's time to pay tribute to this legend of the New Zealand game. Much maligned in his latter years for his supposed inability to spin the ball, but what he lacked in turn he made up for in...

    Best XI with no century or 5w haul to their name

    If this is Misbah-ul-Haq's last ODI, then he'll finish with a pretty decent record without ever scoring a ton. So, what's the best Test and ODI line up where none of the players has scored a ton and for the bowlers, none of them have taken a 5 wicket haul? I'll have a play around and see what...

    The joys of non-cricketers doing cricket marketing

    Number One Where to start with this monstrosity Perhaps with where the artist should have started. Probably should have started by looking at a photo of a game of cricket with a silly mid on in action. That is an insanely silly mid on that they've drawn there. In fact, in this post-Phil...

    Heef Channels the Likely Lads (aka NZ vs. Aus replay)

    For those who've never seen the classic British sitcom, Whatever happened to the Likely Lads?, there's a wonderful episode where the two main characters are trying to avoid finding out the score in a football match so they can watch the full replay in the evening Today, I suffer the same. I've...

    Associate Performances Analysis

    Typing from an iPad, so keeping this short. For now: Ireland vs. WI: batting was the highlight. Great contributions from the top order - power from Stirling provided impetus up top to mean the chase was easy when the pressure came on. Bowling was subpar from the seamers, but reasonable from the...

    CricketWeb Commentary

    Get the techies on this one. I have no idea how it'd work from a technical point of view, but given I'd rather listen to a horde of flatulence afflicted hippopotami than the Channel 9 krew, is there a way to set up a kind of Skype/Radio thing where approved CricketWeb members could step in and...

    ***Official*** Intercontinental Cup Thread

    The ICC World Cricket League (WCL) Division 2 has just finished - with the qualifiers to the Intercontinental Cup 2015-17 being Namibia and Netherlands. Nepal missed out after being thumped by Kenya and with the Dutch tearing Uganda a new one on the last day. Namibia were clear winners. So...

    Having a strange issue at the moment where I can't see a new post to a thread unless I post in it at which point all missing posts are revealed. Most peculiar. Anyone else having this?

    *Official* Emerging Nations Cricket Thread

    I had a look to see if there was an existing thread, so if there is please merge... Anyway - a great article on Cricinfo about PNG cricket here: Tim Wigmore on Papua New Guinea's rise | Cricinfo Magazine | ESPN Cricinfo They're about to make their official ODI debut - taking on Hong Kong in...

    The Sol Bar: New Zealand Cricket Randomness

    You know, some place to talk about the cricket without having to slap your dick on the table and have a measuring contest. Ho hypotheticals about past situations that have already happened and passed us all by.

    Associate Draft - Voting Thread

    They said it couldn't be done. They said we would never have heard of all the players. But it went swimmingly. There were a couple of early casualties, but the draft was completed with the minimum of fuss. So, do you prefer the legend of the Gentlemen of Philadelphia, or do you think they were...

    Associate Draft

    I'd quite like to do an associates draft. Not sure what current protocol is regarding running drafts as I haven't taken part in one for ages, but I'll sure Watson can steer me along the right path. Basically, anyone who has ever played international cricket as an associate is eligible, but only...

    CW Meetup at the Basin Reserve (NZ vs. India Test)

    So, this was alluded to a while back in the relevant series thread. Dan is heading over, I'm there, Hurricane's going. On the Friday, I'll try and get there early to grab some prime real estate at the top of the bank under one of the Pohutakawas with some deckchairs, picnic etc. Anyone keen to...

    Guptill Trash Talk Thread

    A thread for Blocky. Is Guptill good enough to play ODIs? Should he give up the game entirely due to his well publicised (by Blocky) mental health issues? Should he just become a professional 12th man? Should he stick to bowling his slow dobbers? What do you think? If we get enough ideas...

    Annoying Danny Morrison-isms

    There are so many, aren't there? Do people in the sub-continent like him because I honestly can't fathom how he keeps getting commentary gigs. Still reeling over his use of "Devich", today he seems to have taken to calling Dilshan, "Dillers" It is surely only a matter of time before the next...

    Nice Running, ****!

    With the help of the latest Wisden (see page 318), I have assembled this list of *potentially* the worst runners to play a reasonable amount of Test cricket. Wisden provided the total run-outs that each player was involved in and then split them in to run-outs where the player themself was...

    Americas Cup

    Is there a ****ter contest in World sport? 1. You need tons and tons and tons of money to compete. Plus a bit more. 2. If you win, you get to change the rules to suit you. 3. Constant last minute rule changes further undermine the chances of the challengers. 4. Which leads to non-contests on...

    *Official* Lower Hutt Indoor Cricket Premier League 2013

    Expecting this to be stickied. A good chance it may get as many posts as the Caribbean equivalent if we go for it. Here's the league table as things stand: Cricket - Autumn League 2013 - A Grade - Current Standings I used to play in the same team as some guys from the "Ozzy" team, I think...
