    You have to earn your stripes to make an ageist joke. It's nothing personal against Ganeshran who's a good fella.

    That and trhe bottle of Villa Maria at lunch has rendered me disinclined to do so! WAC.

    Guys, I've just liked the OP. It's a travesty that it previously had no likes, let's make it the most liked post in the history of CW

    In my youth, I regularly played backyard cricket with some of my neighbours who were roughly the same age as I. We developed some really unorthodox rules to counteract the environmental hazards at play.

    One such rule outlawed throwing anything at the other players, particularly while they were batting. Penalty runs would ensue if this rule was broken. The reason behind this was fairly simple; players used to throw all sorts of random objects that could found on the field at the batsman to distract him. Gumnuts, grass and eventually even shoes were thrown, which saw to the introduction of the eventual rule after a shoe cost me a match to the shoe-thrower.

    These penalty rules essentially got me a win one day. I was four runs short of victory when I was dismissed, before one of the fielders decided to throw gumnuts at me. It was a deliberate concession of penalty runs out of spite, to stop another player he was having a tiff with from finishing on top. The rules had to be tinkered again after that.

    Good times.

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

    Arjun Nageswaran: I am a 11 year-old boy who lives in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. This is a picture of me playing cricket with my two friends. I am the batsman. We played in the snow and the rule was that if it went past the snow, it would be a 4. Whenever the ball landed in the snow, we would pick it up and in the process create footprints in the snow that would last a long time. I hit the next ball past the snow and got a 4, but got my trousers wet from the snow.
    The Indian Cribb? Should get him here asap. Maybe he could run the CW Forumer World Cup better.
