Cricketer Of The Year
stupid bloody score bars getting in the way of the action. They should piss that **** off while the ball is in play. great catch though.
Totally worthy of a thread. It's funny as ****, if you don't think too much about the people who got ripped off.
I saw a full on punch up between two teams at Te Whiti Park once. I think it was a lower grade T20 game and someone threw a bat.
My favourite part of this is it showing how poorly people from non-cricketing countries rate cricket. Like these Russians saw these dudes on a terrible pitch in mis-matched clothes playing this quality of cricket and thought "yeah seems about right, this would be the best they have to offer"
Still, some nice red ink for you!I saw a full on punch up between two teams at Te Whiti Park once. I think it was a lower grade T20 game and someone threw a bat.
Also had a game abandoned this season because a player objected to his brother, who was drunk, being asked to leave our clubrooms. It was 35 degrees and he'd been sitting on the sidelines making his way through a 12 pack of Jim Beam. The brother kicked up the stumps, threatened to kill our captain and "put every one of youse in the ground", stormed off the pitch and wrecked the away changing room. The opposition had to physically hold him and his brother back from attacking us while they bundled him into a car. We refused to go back on the pitch. I was the only person who wanted to carry on because I was 40* and am a selfish jerk.
