Tragically, I think Ez along with most of the rest of the Portugese are destined to live out their sad little lives in degredation, misery and squalor, with no hope of any improvement in their quality of life. :(

Cricket could have changed all that. :D

Bangas win by 40 odd runs!!! :):):)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
One-day cricket is popular with spectators, as it can encourage aggressive, risky and entertaining batting,which often results in cliffhanger endings. It also ensures a spectator can go and see an entire match without committing to five days of continuous attendence, which is often subject to adverse weather conditions. There is no doubt that one day cricket often appeals to those who would normally find five days of test match cricket very boring. Since its inception, one day cricket has attracted a huge following.

One day cricket is often called limited-over or limited-over international cricket.

One day cricket is often refered to by cricket purists (those who follow test match cricket) as

The game changes according to the age in which it is played. In earlier times, a bowler who was hit for a six would applaud and say "Well played, mate"; nowadays, it is more likely to be "I'm gonna knock yer head off, you @$$%&*!"

Once you get the hang of it, you will find that cricket is a game played by sportsmen--in every sense of the term.

It does not matter where you are from. It is an English game and the English have never won a World Cup.

That should make you think.

I like the fact that many people watch a game which many turns are taken to get the three outs. These games last about a full couple days sometimes and provide plenty excitement.:)

Do you know that Portugal was the European Cricket Cup champions in 2001 and that you beat Sweden, Spain, Finland, Malta, and Belgium to win the trophy?:D

You have a 6-a-side game played indoors in Europe and Portugal won almost all the matches.

I think you could beat the Yanks if you practised hard enough.:D

Say if you buy a ticket for a cricket match, and the game runs a few days, is the initial ticket good for the next day or do you have to buy a new ticket?

What's a good sized crowd for a cricket match?

What are the festivities in the stands like?

Traditionalyy, if you are a member of the Club or Ground, you can attend as many or as few days of any match at that venue. If you are not, you must buy tickets for each day you want to go.

You can buy a one-day ticket or a five-day ticket.

If you are in Eden Gardens or Gaddafi Stadium a good-sized crowd is 100,000.

If you are in Lords, the festivities are a bit different from the rest of the world. You behave like you are in church,
