Subject: BS: Anyone for cricket?

Date: 20 Jul 03 - 06:03 AM

Mike and I spent yesterday at the finals of the new Twenty 20 cricket competition at Trent Bridge. Not real cricket for the purists but lots of fun, over 800 runs in the day, (mostly in boundaries),plenty of wickets, superb fielding and generally very entertaining. The idea is to sell the game to young people. So, they had music in the interval. Half an hour of Atomic Kitten gyrating seductively as they sang along to a recorded backing track did nothing for me! (Mike couldn't get close enough to see - that was all he was interested in!) What a shame they couldn't have some quality live music. I'll be on to the ECB directly.

During trips to Britain and the Continent, I have watched Cricket matches on the tube whilst my wife was doing womanly things in preparation for the day or evening. For the life of me I cannot yet figure out the rules to the game. I have even read the basic rules, but it didn't help. No wonder Abner Doubleday invented baseball (if he really did)! Scores of 800 are nearly impossible in baseball. BG.

John, does this help?

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he is out. When they are all out, the side that's been out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out, he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who are all out all the time, and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game.

Soccer, typically you get games without any score at all, or with just one or two goals. Cricket you get scores in the hundreds.

Just goes to show that high scores don't necessarily mean a livelier kind of game.

I must admit to having my doubts about the 20 over game as it seems to me that our players need more practice at staying in the crease rather than at taking risks and possibly throwing away wickets.

On the other hand, I can imagine it could be exciting to watch and if it really does attract youngsters to the game, that has to be a good thing.

I followed the score cards from time to time during the day of the semis and the final. I don't know what it was like watching it but from my "view", it seemed like the final was a bit of an anti-climax with Surrey winning far too easily.

A cricket will eat holes in your clothes and can tell you the temperature by the number of chirps it makes (up to a point).

Wicket is what a bad person is: Hitler was really wicket.

Over is what is best about cricket matches.

I have watched a few games with great interest since I got a new sports channel a couple of months ago. I've got the scoring of runs down and I think I know how a batsman can be relieved. Other than that, I am at a loss. However, I must say that the Fox Sports World channel doesn't "do" anything for the game... at the end of the matches I watched I learned that I was watching taped games, from 1998 !

Jon,Surrey won the final because they bowled Warwickshire out and kept the runs down with great fielding. It feels odd for me, a Notts supporter (somebody has to be) standing up for a southern team!
Gnu, I think a batsman would be relieved if he saw me preparing to bowl at him but I'm sure that there are many other reasons!

Most complete game ever devised by man.

With regard to Test Matches it calls on the greatest variety of skills from agronomy, through meteorology to athleticism in terms of endurance and stamina, excellent hand-eye co-ordination and the required turn of speed of an olympic sprinter.

Tests are incredibly difficult to win - the number of ways in which a match that appears to be a foregone conclusion can be played to a draw is astounding.

I'm a bit of a traditionalist as far as cricket is concerned as well.

I did go to a couple of the Twenty 20 group games at Old Trafford, and have to say I enjoyed myself a lot.

Due to work and other commitments, I don't get a chance to go to many games, so being able to finish work, watch some exciting play, have a couple of beers and still be home for 9pm was a hit with me. (Seeing Shoaib Akhtar square cut for six was worth the entry price of one game alone)

Jon, you'll be pleased to know that during the (albeit short) innings break kids played on the outfield, a great many of them at that. I do wish they'd lose "Another one bites the dust" whenever a wicket falls, though.

Cricket Lovers by Bernard Carney

Be my cricket momma I'll be your cricket bloke
Drive me hard through the covers with a well timed stroke
I don't want no leg glance or no short pitched chat
To show me how you swing your bat

We'd be some partnership no one-day match
You my wicket maiden I your easy catch
Your leather on my willow would be my reward
I need to get some runs on your board

Lets not talk of sundries
Cos when they total up our score
I'll be your easy single
If you'll be my leg before

We'd know no boundaries we'd have wickets in hand
I'll even introduce you to the members stand
Don't want no Test Match or no Sheffield Shield
Just show me how you place your field

With your deep fine leg and your extra point
Our runs will never cease
I won't   be daring to think about declaring
Til I've got you in my crease

So when the light is fading or the rain stops play
I'll be your night watchmen any old day
So let's be cricket lovers now the seasons here
We'll maybe make it last all year
Come on and make it last all year

Lack of detailed data in English historical records have led to two theories as to why the English decided to colonise Australia.
One is that it was to establish a military base as a check to French expansionism in the Pacific and the other is that it was a dumping ground for convicts.
Well, neither is right, and the lack of records is because the Lords of the Admiralty could only give the real reason verbally to Cook. "Look, James old boy, get yourself down into that southern ocean, where its summer in our winter, and find somewhere to lay out decent cricket pitch so we've got somewhere to send our team in our off season. Take Joseph Banks with you to get some soil samples so we can come up with a wicket that has got a green top, on the first few days, so the fast bowlers can make merry, cracking up on the last couple of days to assist the spinners. And do it before those blasted Frogs get down there and turn everything into a vineyard."
Cook carried out his orders and discovered the cricket Mecca of the world. Then they had to ship down oodles of convicts ( well noted bonkers ) to breed like buggery to build up an "audience" for the English team to perform before.
So there you have it, our nation was created for the love of cricket!

Howzat.

In 1937, the Reverend T. McVittie, Moderator of the Sydney Presbytery, said,

    "If Christ came to Sydney today He would be on 'the Hill' at cricket matches driving home the lessons of the game.

    "One can imagine Christ reminding the crowd that Satan was the deadliest and most determined googley bowler of all time."

Indeed one can, should one happen to know what a "googley bowler" is or was. I myself feel that it must be some sort of hat.

Going back to the transatlantic thing, Americans had to invent baseball because they have such a short attention span. They can't concentrate any longer than it takes some prat in badly-designed trousers to throw a large white ball at another prat in badly-designed trousers three times, and for him to miss the ball with his cudgel amost every time.

And even when the prat with the cudgel (they call him the batter and the chap chucking the ball the pitcher - I thought batter was what you make yorkshire puddin's from, and a pitcher's a water-jug?) does manage by some odd chance to make contact with the ball, it's a bloody great swipe and the ball flies off in any direction. Try a leg-glance or a reverse-sweep with a baseball bat - can't be done!

No, cricket's the thinking man's baseball, and there ain't many thinking Yanks - look at the President they managed to elect for themselves!

Okay.....Confession time.

I too got Cricket on a sports channel and started watching. I have never been able to figure it out but it seemed to me that if I found a few websites and watched a lot of games (no matter the age, I didn't have any favorites) I'd get the general idea and maybe learn why others enjoyed it....and maybe I would myself!

So I watched. And I learned. Well, sorta'.......I remember feeling sheer ecstasy when I figured out what the "crease" was. I relied a lot on the announcer to lead me and slowly some of it started to make sense. Then I was watching a match after a few weeks of tuning in several times a week, and at the beginning of the second, from the announcer's voice I sensed a moment of high drama. The moment passed and the poor guy sounded terribly sad that things hadn't gone as they might have and was seemingly berating the one team. The only problem here was that I had absolutely no idea what the moment was or why there was any drama in it. Now was the time to face some facts.

The Brits are quite obviously a people of high intelligence or at least of a higher order of intelligence than I can claim. I congratulate all of you who have mastered not just the intricacies of Cricket but even the basic idea of the game. You are all a special breed of humankind to be revered by one and all.

It's either that or Cricket is, beyond any shadow of a doubt and without qualification, the stupidest fucking game ever conceived and all of you who claim to enjoy it are actually clinically dead. This comes from a man who enjoys Yacht Racing, a sport once noted as akin to watching grass grow. Cricket is like watching dead grass even try to grow.....in a barren field......in August......during a drought.....with 100 degree temperatures.....underneath a layer of salt......

To all who like the game, good for you! Please have your Death Certificates validated at the courthouse.

It's not that hard spaw!

But cricket is a tactical game. You can have bowlers trying to outwit batsmen, batsmen trying to dominate a bowler. A captain with an armoury of bowlers, some who can bowl very fast, others who can spin the ball and make it turn very sharply, choices of where to put the fielders to get the best chance possibly to attack (ie take catches) or perhaps to defend (i.e. stop the other side scoring too quickly).

Think of a test match as a game of chess played out by skilled athletes.

Of course, one great advantage of cricket over baseball is the fact that it is played during the day, even on weekdays.
You can take your lunchbreak, walk to an in-city pitch, watch 3/4 hours of play while sitting in the sun with a beer in your hand, then return to work.
At 5pm you can leave work and go and watch another hour or two without having really missed any action in between.

I guess I'd part agree with that. It is rather nice that if you wish you can just sort of dip in and out of a game.

A ground I used to go to was Colwyn Bay when Glamorgan came up there. It's a small ground - having a beer is fine but I never liked to take my eye off where the ball was going!

I'm in Norfolk these days. My father and I sometimes debate about going down to Essex to see a first class county match.

Oh and while drifting, thinking of Colwyn Bay and SA, I'm pretty sure I still have Graham Pollock's autograph somewhere from some game (Cavaliers?) in the 60s there.
