    Recently faded-away players - from each nation - A collection

    Ricardo Powell was an awesome cricketer. Great fielder no matter where you put him but usually close in because his hand speed was second to none. He also ran like lightning between the wickets. His namesake Daren Powell didn't fare as well but you could count on him for one thing and one thing...

    Official, confirmed, verified "You are the umpire" thread

    1. There is no television referral system in place. A bowler has had a couple of appeals turned down. He asks you why you said not out. Can you tell him why you made your calls? 2. You are fielding at square leg, and the batsman absolutely smashes one into your body. In self defense you throw...

    Questions are open for Round 3 of this discussion. And I'll actually open the questions myself. Working. Covid is still around and although I'm not directly dealing with confirmed covid cases anymore, the variants are such that one might have had covid and not even know it. My boss says that...

    Batman, with all the new rules about concussions etc, you really expect a collapsed player to continue batting after he's revived? Joker does not agree. He's back in the hut almost immediately, even if in all the time it will take for a stretcher to come onto the field he recovers and says he's...

    Hmm. The rules have probably changed and I wasn't aware. I'd go with what Parth said about this. The fielding captain should ideally withdraw the appeal in the spirit of the game. But the batsman should also retire hurt to get properly treated in any case. I think in the circumstances it...

    Invalid. The par score is not one to be tied. You must be above that score for a victory. In the case of a team making the par score it's a win for the team bowling second. EDIT: as to the other issue, the ball is generally declared dead when it settles into the hands of the keeper or a...

    Poetry, i guess

    Thanks @Parth D and @CerealKiller . The first one was really written off of a pure word and thought association from me, nothing HAD to rhyme or even make sense so that's why it didn't. The second was, I sort of was in that stage between asleep and awake and I got the first few lines and I just...

    Update on the qpee...

    I will never sleep knowing you're out there. Lol. Yes The growl tags are meant to be there. EDIT: To those of you who are new, or who may not know, myself and Parth have had a sort of Batman/Joker relationship over the years. We compliment each other's personas in a way, but we don't take it...

    Just wanted to tell the guys and gals on here that I may be gone for months at a time, but never forgot you all. Trying to teach my wife cricket slowly but surely. She's getting the hang of it though. But more important things are at hand, namely our future successes as doctors and also our...

    Poetry, i guess

    Another one that I always freestyled after the first verse back in the day, titled, "Smile" Does he return his smile to her? Does he smile back undeterred? Is he a part of her life? Or does she try to screw his mind? Does it hurt to be insane? Or can he cope with all the pain? (freestyle from...
