Cricket related stuff that doesn't really deserve a thread

32 year old former South African first class player dies after being hit by a bouncer. Awful news for all involved. I can't imagine how the bowler must feel.
When I played in Canada a youngster was killed by a bouncer in our league. The bowler was some Aussie who bowled a heavy ball but wasn't that quick. The bowler was freaked out I think but he insisted on carrying on bowling in that game and for the rest of the season. I don't really think he wanted to deal with the reality of it.

I played in the next game against the young man's team - they let his twin brother open the bowling against me - I dotted him out for two maidens then they took him off.

Got a charity cricket game next week with guys including Arul Suppaih and Arjuna Ranatunga. Now I'm a shadow of my former self and not as quick as I used to be. It is a charity game and all but I fancy digging one or two in short against Ranatunga. The question is, **** move or not?

I know some of the FB T20 matches are aired, hopefully there's footage out there.
