Surprised that a norvernah like you don't care.
Seeing as cricket plays a very big part in Northern sporting heritage.
Having said that, you're a Wigan fan so what the f**k would a fat c**t like you know about anything sport?


Cricket isn't a big part of northern sporting heritage, that is Football and Rugby League.

I do like cricket though and enjoy watching it, just don't follow it or anything. Same with snooker really, I think they are both great sports to watch and play, but I'm not a big fan or owt.

Yeh we produce a shitload of sportsmen in every sport! We're just better than you southern fairies and we actually have green parks and fields to play on.

You've never been to Kent, have you, Crispy?

It probably helps living on the coast, but there are loads of playing fields around where I live. There's 4, free to use, outdoor tennis courts about a 5 minute walk from me. There's other free courts dotted around the coastline.

Of course it couldn't hurt to have even more playing fields, most definitely. I do love big cities, but I could never see myself moving away from the coast now - I love it too much. When I go for my runs, there's loads of routes to take and lovely fresh sea air. Same if you want to go for a kickabout, there's plenty of options available.

Hovis and rickets. :lol:

Didn't watch the Lords match as I hate the place, worst Test ground in England. Just a place for all the rich b******s to sit in silence with those stupid coloured ties and suits.

Anyway today was quite unexpected, thought the West Indies would slump to a low score but Samuels and Sammy took them to a rather respectable score by the end of the days play. Hoping to get down for Sunday or Monday.

Know what you're saying but it's tradition, innit?
The Windies certainly have fought back.
And about f**king time too!
As great a batsman as Chanderpaul is, he is the Windies equivalent of Boycott.....great batsman, no team player and as interesting as watching paint dry.
And as a painter then I can tell you that it ain't very interesting.
I stood there once just to watch eggshell dry for the duration.
18 hours of Chanderpaul is what it felt like!

Agreed. I didn't even know he was the number 1 ranked batsmen in the world, I've rarely heard him mentioned in the past year. Shame most of the other WI team aren't really good enough to pose a major challenge. Don't think they'll ever be a really great side again what with basketball becoming more popular/lucrative over there.

Good to see Strauss getting back into form, greatly needed for his confidence. Fully expect England to go on and win now. Cook was lucky with the two no balls earlier on. 8 wickets in hand and trailing by 111 is a great position, unless they collapse can't see any other result.

Edit: What a fantastic IPL finale, so close, was wanting Chennai to but credit to Kolkata, they played really well. Great match, makes me regret not watching more of the IPL.

Haven't been watching the IPL mate but sounds good.
Only allowed to watch the test matches if I'm honest.

I usually only watch Test and T20's but the IPL was on during the day for the most part so I wasn't able to watch a lot of it.

Still number one in the world rankings.

Fully expected a series win and now for the whitewash, South Africa will provide a much sterner test later on in the year though.

Comprehensively thrashed though, weren't they mate.
We will see with the South Africans.
Looking forward to it.
