Last time we played you at Headingley I was pretty atrocious. Went there praying for a miracle England performance...you cleaned us up before Lunch..

Pretty sure the last time I was at Old Trafford as well an Aussie was drinking beer out of an inflatable Kangaroo. Loved that guy.

it's fantastic up on the hill here. so many people dressed up as kangaroos, koala's, a few emu's and usually someone with a carboard bus . doing shots with a kangaroo who smuggled in scotch in his pouch was absolutely priceless

I'm pretty sure a lot of people in the UK are finally copping on to how underrated a day out at the cricket can be for a good laugh and getting drunk. Compared to football for example its amazing how much we can get away with in the stands. You can't have a can of beer near the stairs entering a stand at football, but in cricket you can get 10 cups of beer at a time and drink them in plain sight.

Cricket fans are also great at making a day entertaining even when the game is going away from you, pretty sure it was day 3 at Headingley and you Aussies were looking stronger and on top of the game (you'd go on to win before lunch the next day) so 10 guys around us started ripping the piss out of their mate, telling him to stand up and get some chants going only to sit down when he began and then jump up and carry on the song the minute he gave up and sat down. He was that pissed it went on for a good 30 minutes before he just called them a bunch of cunts and fell asleep.

security has like 3 rules, 1) don't fight. 2) don't come onto the ground, 3) don't let a beach ball get onto the field.

Apart from that, fill your boots with as much heckling and abuse as you like. Was at a game a few years back against India. Their man on the boundary got a beach ball and instead of doing the fun thing and chucking it back over the fence gave it to the security guard who popped it. Poor bloke got abused so much in the next 2 overs he asked his captain to be moved in the field .

edit: former prime minister of australia...



like a boss.

Yes.

Instead of taking all the three forms as "forms of cricket" deluded fans are now defining cricket to something related to their personal opinions.

Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of 11 players on a field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard long pitch. One team bats, trying to score as many runs as possible while the other team bowls and fields, trying to dismiss the batsmen and thus limit the runs scored by the batting team. A run is scored by the striking batsman hitting the ball with his bat, running to the opposite end of the pitch and touching the crease there without being dismissed. The teams switch between batting and fielding at the end of an innings.

heyyoooooo

Personal opinions.

I have never seen any celebrations or excitement in India as was witnessed when they won the ODI World Cup last year. Or when the whole city of Kolkatta went into a 3-day celebrations for winning IPL.




No, that is not Eden Gardens during a match. It was a full crowd for celebrating the IPL win 2 days after the final of the IPL.

It's because India and Indians have nothing better to celebrate other than meaningless crash and bash tournaments.

I'm sure I could sift through the archives and get a huge collection of pics from epic Ashes victories and epic Ashes moments, such as Freddy Flintoff consoling Brett Lee after getting the last wicket and reclaiming the Ashes for England. Test cricket emodies sportsmanship, a gentleman's manor, and exhibits the true skills of the great game. T20 is just a bang for your buck revenue raising shamble that diminishes quality cricket. Cling to whatever remnants of success you have, DarthSimian, for I would rather be #10 in the T20 rankings than being incapable of winning a test series away from home. 4-0, 4-0, 4-0!
