• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Anyone for Cricket?

.... there just seems to have been snippets about the old game of willow against leather. I'd like to see a revival of some cricket chat on here featuring anything from County to Test Matches and 20/20 stuff, maybe even some ladies cricket news would be OK too. I'll do my best to pop in here and drop an odd googly in, would be great if there were a few like minded individuals around to discuss the old stumps and bails. :eek:

... looks like this is on hold too due to no matches being played and obviously a lack of interest. Does not look to be too many cricket lovers around here. Really surprised at that, I thought that there would be a few supporters around. :)

..... Still no movement here, all the cricket lovers must be wrapped up on another site. Of course it does not help when the season is on hold due to this never ending virus. I pass my County Ground on a regular basis and it looks an absolute forlorn picture. Should have been bustling with activity at the height of the season, but only a few odd cars around the car park which are not officially open yet anyway. :eek:

..... some activity at last is due when Durham open the new season with a match against Yorkshire in the new Bob Willis Trophy series. Should attract a fair crowd and will be interesting to see what Durham can do since their demise a couple of seasons back when they were having financial problems.They are always well supported. ;)

Not a great fan of cricket myself - although I played a few games as a kid at school and I wasn't a bad bowler.
Last series I watched I think Beefy Botham was batting!!....lol
I see he has a peerage now - nice to see.

.... been a lot of stumps knocked down since those days. He is actually still connected to Durham County Cricket Club these days in some high ranking capacity and is a good ambassador for the sport up here. ;)

U excited for IPL as I think crowds will be allowed this season

..... I am not a strong follower of the IPL so not a lot of interest there. I prefer watching Test matches particularly when England are playing and it is over five days instead of the Mickey Mouse stuff which is being served up in 20/20 matches etc. ;)

owh, I am a supporter of England when it comes to International matches. I like 20-20 alot rather than test which is so boring honestly.

I know very little about cricket but the test matches between India v England seem to go in favour of whoever wins the toss, probably due to the wicket deterioting very quickly and the match ending early. 3rd test starts tomorrow and the the odds are 8/15 india... 11/4 england ...and 6/1 draw. The obvious conclusion is that the toss will be a big factor here and england at 11/4 could be value though i just worry that this game is under lights which might make a difference , i don't know.

Exactly, your absolutely correct. England won 1st because they batted first and India won second because of the same. Toss is key here.

In pitches like this, toss is the key. Even in Pakistan League as of the 4 matches played, all won by team batting second and whoever wins toss, they bat second
