  1. If you don't know what I'm on about, stay clear. It may stop you posting about kittens or boyfriends or lack of boyfriends or hormones and other lady malarkey. :¬))

    What's the Overseas Development Institute got to do with cricket?

  3. Test

    I am a traditionalist
     
  4. Thank you. I'm watching the t20 but it is just slog and hope. I,like you, RF like the cut and thrust and snooze appeal of a 5 day test.

    I think you is being silly, cinnenannamon.

    I believe in Obssessive drunken incompetence.
     
  9. For me, Geoff Boycott and a serious Forward Defence ... that is cricket

    Imagine GB taking a swing and a hope

    That's a bit of a tongue-twister of a nickname, but I like it.

    And I agree, Test all the way.
     
  12. Jeez it would have taken at least 30 overs for GB to get round to undoing his top button.
     
  13. Come on Eoin.
     
  14. You are not a Yorkshireman then Baubs?

    There's flawed logic there. How can not being a techhie so not posting on here stopsomeone from posting about that other stuff?
     
  16. No but I loved Boycs as a batsmen in his earlier years....he became a bit of *** in his later years and as a commentator.
     
  17. I can't understand a word of your post, inky but I value your comments on the 3 cricket formats.

    There's a serialisation of John Major reading from his book More Than a Game on the iplayer at the moment. Excellent stuff describing the history of cricket, and excellently written too. Tells you quite a lot more about John Major as a person.
    A memorable line when he was describing how test cricket was halted as players rushed off to join "the war that would be over by Christmas. They needn't have hurried..."

    uuurrrggghhh!
    Why did I read page two first? Sorry sorry sorry...

    Tests
    are my favourite. I used to enjoy the old Sunday league when I was a
    WCCC member - a great Sunday out with lots of banter and good pavilion
    privileges for visiting members - but there's nothing to compare with
    the accumulating excitement of a proper five-day test.
