    Prince's transformation shows what we can come to expect from some of our younger posters. CDM's recent improvement means he's already come on leaps and bounds in the last 6 months, imagine what he could be like in 3-4 years (if he still posts here)

You still have a way to come though.
    You were 14/15 too!!!
    But i guess because you are so up urself you taugh you were a right tough guy.

    Haha. I cringe whenever I find my old posts. Not that the new ones are any better, mind you.

    Well one day, needing 4 runs to rake the lead (and virtaully win) and to reach my double century (dont ask, wierd scoring system), Nick got me out. I was so dissapointed, knowing I had lost.

    The next bastman in was David, whos average was only twenty and high score was 104. Yes we actually calculate this. He had no hope of reaching 200, so Nick (the one who got me out) was going to win.

    Sanka (the shoe guy) then decided he didnt want Nick to win and threw 4 gumnuts at me! results in 8 runs, winning me the match and giving me my first double centrury. Nick was so dissapointed and annoyed at Sanka that he began yelling and screaming at him.

    Since then the throwing rule has changed, as have the scoring system. Well, the thrpowing rule hasnt really cganged, just the scoring system making less attractive. Now bowling is included to your score, subtracting it from a HUGE batting total, sometimes over 300, but most scores end up at about 60. This meaning that if you throw something at someone, they get 10 runs and you have ten runs against your bowling, giving you a lower final score.
    And if the outcome of your score has already been decided, the runs go to the next innings.
    Great story Rob.

    I put forward a motion to have this thread removed, due to the complete rubbish it contains. Worst post ever.
    C'mon, Prince EWS - we can't delete this gold. That'd be like telling the voiceover guy on The Wonder Years he's fired.

    I really wish people would stop bumping it.

    I can delete it myself now if need be.

    Mine is an old piece of junk. Some random brand called double drive or something and is designed specifically for tapeball cricket.

    Oops, it appears that I have accidentally posted in the wrong thread.

    Anyway, the original post seems well interesting, and I think that such innovative rules should become a mainstay at all levels of the game.

    Have there been any rule updates to the rules to create a more exciting brand of cricket?

    Reckon PEWS tells all his mates about this and encourages them to dig it. Secretly loves the attention.
