    Hello everyone, My sister is really keen on scoring (she's even a ICC Europe tutor for scoring) she's been doing it for years.. She would like to learn how to use and master the linear method.. I've been looking for examples on google but had no luck.. Is there anyone who knows how it works or...

    **Official** ICC World T20 Qualifier Thread.

    Great game.. It could have gone both ways.. Italy would have deserved the win- but Ireland obviously wasn't 100% concentrated in the second innings.. But still well done Italy!! Proud to be Italian :D

    **Official** ICC World T20 Qualifier Thread.

    Nope.. I didn't make it in the final 14- but I'm still registered for the tournament and if any player gets injured I may be called up (I am one of the four reserve players)

    **Official** ICC World T20 Qualifier Thread.

    The eligibility rules for the t20wc are more flexible thus making it easier for Di Venuto to rappresent the Azzurri without spending an entire cricket season in Italy.. Which until he has a pro contract would be nearly impossible!! England play south African players with English backgrounds...

    How to popularize Cricket?

    I think there are two ways to get cricket more popular. First is showing the game on free tv in all coutries which arn't big on cricket and not only t20, but even 50 over games and test full highlights Second getting T20 cricket into the Olimpics, which would give lots more funds to the...

    "Australia's most talented athletes are wasted in a code that the world ignores."

    I think cricket must be considered a global sport- yes it's BIG only in 10-12 countries, but it's played in most of the countries in the world.. ICC has got 105 members (10 full, 35 Associate, 60 Affiliate) Rugby has 124 member countries, so it's probably more spread than cricket, but there's...

    The greatest tactician

    This article was taken from crickinfo's columm Ask Steven.. Great exaple of Brearley's pure "innovation" in captaincy! I heard that Mike Brearley, frustrated by Middlesex's inability to break a stubborn partnership, put the spare fielding helmet in front of the wicket to try to tempt the...

Plus six other players have an Italian mother or father, which makes them 100% italian ;) If KP, Morgan, Trott etc play for England, and how can all our players not...

    Should we promote Regional Tournaments

    They would surely raise the playing standards in the associate leves, but VERY few countries could afford a unit of 16 professional players.. O the Regional Tournamens topic, i think it would benifit mainly the associate, but not only tecnicly speaking.. in the sense of media coverage.. More...

    yes he first does the mea culpa with his arms across his chest with his hands ending up on the shoulders then does the dead ball signal. I new way could be introduced- just to hel the spectators.
