    The "Also Rans" Poster Draft

    The following are obviously exempt from this draft as they are ATGs of the forum whose contributions and consistent excellence make them beyond reproach. Keep in mind that at th ATG level there is very little between these posters, each of whom are rightly rated enormously highly. CW ATG 1st XI...

    Vale Rod Marsh

    Most CWers would be aware Rod Marsh had a heart attack last week. This morning it's confirmed the great man has passed away at 74. If you grew up watching and loving cricket in the 70s and 80s, Marsh was a massive part of the Chappell era and was quintessentially a 70s Aus cricketer. 355 test...

    Vale John Cornell

    At 80. Normally wouldn't post about the death of an old comedian in CC, but his role in making WSC happen was ground breaking. Albeit more famous as Strop, Paul Hogan's offsider, he was instrumental in WSC happening. Also responsible for generations of ear worms by telling Kerry Packer he...

    40 years since Botham’s Ashes

    The Times has a great article by Mike Atherton in which he talks with Mike Brearley about the 81 Ashes. Well worth a read. Link here: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/heroes-of-81-the-ashes-series-where-legends-were-made-vcqnmnfrg

    Stuart MacGill kidnapped

    Not something you expect to read happening on the mean streets of Cremorne. Glad he’s apparently safe and well. https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/amp.smh.com.au/national/nsw/former-australian-cricketer-stuart-macgill-allegedly-kidnapped-and-threatened-at-gunpoint-20210505-p57ozz.html

    Slow clap....

    To the mods for closing the offending thread in CC after a ****ing day of piling on. You blokes are completely ****ed in the head and have not a sliver of common sense, character or perspective about you. Not one. Too busy pandering to the brain dead cabal to do your ****ing jobs Honestly...

    Australian intra-squad warm up game 23-26 August, The rose Bowl, Southampton

    Ridiculously titled the "Haddin XI v Hick XI", presumably one side will try to bomb someone over long off with the score at 5/18 while the other will never reach its potential, but look a million bucks doing so.
