    I need help...

    I don’t know if this belongs in OT or N&P (mods feel free to move if appropriate) but I’ve got a situation I’m struggling with. I’ve got a very close friend who has stood by me and been tremendously selfless at times where I’ve needed his support and I’m aware of the best bits of his character...

    When I played as sledger in CWMaf, I'm pretty sure he was described as an 'anti-hero'.... do it Sledger... do it....

    How many consecutive centuries are you away from Test selection?

    A question borne of a disussion with Cribb about his objection to Joe Burns' coverblocks. I am quite the purveyor of the gulleyblock myself; which apparently is fine as I'm not trying to play Test cricket with them... or aren't I? Ultimately, we all try and score as many runs as we can, each...

    So, register your interest here.... For those who played last time, it'll follow a similar format to the first edition. For those who did not... all will become clear soon enough.

    Oft Forgotten Player Comparison Thread

    Like it or not, player comparisons are basically oxygen to CW and I think its getting perilously close to the stage where the air is getting a bit stale. While there has been some rather interesting discussion in the Sangakkara thread on a conceptual level, it has still somewhat boiled down to...

    CW's Yearbook

    Okay, somewhat lame idea for a thread but IDGAF. Rather than focus on how grey CW is these days I thought it might be an idea to acknowledge the broad range of characters we have on these boards and throw out some categories to discuss. Who is: - most likely to appear on reality TV? (See...

    Cricket Budget Draft

    A random idea I had: Basically, it's a standard all-time draft but each team has a budget of : 500 Test caps 30000 Test runs 1000 Test wickets. To allow some flexibilityy and variation between teams in any round of the draft, prior to making your pick, you may elect to 'exchange' 100 wickets...

    England performance squad tour.

    Ge got it up to 95mph on Sky this summer. Hit Graeme Swann on the hand in the Essex v England game and then while out in Aus this winter he's hit Cook twice, badged Root, hit Carberry in the gut and cleaned up Bell who apparently said "Why the **** isn't this guy in the Essex side every week?"

    Batting Outside of The Crease

    What are the disadvantages to it? Currently watching the ENG/NZ Test and both Williamson and Brownlie are well back in their crease to the English seam bowlers. Now I appreciate that Anderson, Broad and Finn are a little bit quicker than the stuff I face on a Saturday but are there any...
