Am I the only person here who's interested?

The whole 'super 8' stage would seem to be a mistake, but getting home from work and hearing Aggers talking to Sir IVA Richards (A complete hero of mine)whilst describing cricket is a delight to me.

Every day for the next month too!

Unfortunately (or fortunately) it's not being telecast on free-to-air here in Oz, and it's on during my hours of rest, so I didn't listen to it on the radio either, but I see this morning on Cricinfo that the English support for Scotland didn't seem to do the trick.

I have to say though, I am impressed that a Scottish team took six wickets and kept Australia's score in the low 3oo's.

Spaw.....Who thankfully has no idea what a wicket is outside of Croquet and even less idea what it means to take one. Please don't explain.

I agree with John O'L.

I love cricket and can watch it till the cows come home. Howveer freindly banter helps jolly up the thread.

I watched the Irish match and it was very enjoyable.

I love football and cricket, but I love cricket more than football.

So yes Ed there are some serious cricket fans here, but we like a laugh and a joke as well.

Come on England go beat then Kiwi's.

Ireland now 63 for 2, needing 133 for a win, can they once again confound everyone and beat Pakistan, the odds would favour Pakistan, but unlike our Rugby team who presented the Championship to France, lets hope they be a bit more subtle.

Now - I'm British -- my dad was an army officer and cricket was HUGE for him -- I remember having a small black and white tv when I was about 8 and my dad pinning blankets up at the window to make the room dark enough to see the images.........he was NOT to be disturbed during test matches.

I remember taking a cricket ball in the eye when I was about 4 - can still feel it - ouch.......

After years of living in the US my (American) husband and I returned to England for five years -- he felt that he really ought to understand the game and really tried. He took books out of the library that assumed you understood the basic rules....he didn't. Unfortunately, neither did I - some problem with genetics perhaps?????

McGrath it won`t be the first time we used Hurling sticks as Cricket bats,when young, our version of Cricket didn`t comply with MCC rules, it is still well down the order as a popular sport in Ireland.
The cheek of the Independent newspaper to headline the fact that one of the Irish heroes was an Aussie,and no mention of South African Kevin Pieterson as he comes out as Englands best batsman against New Zealand, Picking holes can lead to, egg on the face.

When you go back to the early cricket bats, some of them looked more like hurling sticks anyway - see here. I'm sure if the GAA put their thinking caps on they could come up with authentic Irish version of cricket that Finn MacCool used to play.

The death of Bob Woolmer was a real shock, the pressure the managers in all sports are under is brought home by Bob Woolmer`s death, Jock Stein the great Celtic Manager died in similar circumstances. This tragic event has surely left the Irish Cricket team and their supporters in a sad and chastened mood, sport is insignificant when compared to this.

McGrath,

The GAA include rounders as one of thier games. You could stretch a point and say they were claiming the original from of both Cricket and Baseball.

In Irish mythology Setanta (who later became CúChulainn was a renouned hurler. I don't think that was a game palyed by oposing teams of 15 a side in those days. Just a man hitting a ball (or maybe a stone) with a stick, probably one of the first sports that was ever developed.
