He won the innings due to this, with the worst bowler (Matt) still haveing 3 balls to go, off which I neede 1 run.

    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.
    Best double hundred in all of cricket.

    Sad to see a long term member's posting standard has declined the way Cribb's has.

    The reason I kept closing it was the fact that people kept actually joining here from other forums to bump it, which was a bit much. Then it just became a weekly habit. No reason to close or delete posts if it's just CW members having a laugh at me in TF though, really.

    I get the feeling I'll be apologizing similarly to how Cribb did in a few years.
