    Icon3 Please add a new thread for newcomers' questions

    I am new to Cricket and have many stupid questions.
    For example, why Batsman does not use elbow protection while using leg protection, is there any nonslip for Bowlers, etc.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    The acceptance that the questions he wants to ask are stupid tends to invite a particular answer to the request, imo

    Loko is the collective consciousness of a group of aliens whose spacecraft plunged to the bottom of Loch Lomond about twenty years ago
    Hurricane and Howe_zat like this.

    A sub-forum for stupid questions is why Cricket Chat was created in the first place.

    If you want one thread for all your stupid questions, why not ask new stupid questions in the same thread you've got going rather than keep on starting new threads?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
