Most other forums (infact, all) I've visited before have this marked with a small dot or arrow to the left of the thread title...

    With Hughes recent success in the Test against New Zealand, are you in favour of him opening with either Katich or Watson, with the other slipping down the order, or keeping the winning combination? Seeing as a lot of people have recently been wanting North dropped after his poor Australian...

    Weights exercises for batsman

    Seeing as now I've stopped bowling, what are the best weights exercises to do for batting to improve strength specific to batting? Like, the power through the shots, running between the wickets, etc. I had this when I was bowling: Upper: Push ups Bench press Deadlifts Shoulder Press Chest...

    Yes, another captaincy thread. Well, now, I'm having massive second thoughts about captaining my school side. I don't know whether to do it or just be a player. I don't really know much about setting fields, but the rest I know what's going on. So, should I captain, and how can I set fields...

    Classifying pace bowling

    How would I classify my pace, at 13? For example: Fast bowling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Is for full grown men, how would you rank for a player of my age? On that scale, I'm not even medium, but I'm not exactly a slow bowler, for my age.

    It's just not cricket

    If Test cricket died

    Would you still watch cricket? Personally, I would watch the occasional game of One Day cricket, but then I would probably end up getting desperate and start watch lots more OD.
