Perhaps they already have, but aren't fit to be played at international first class level. Reduced to the same level and Thailand or Singapore. ;)

Eng, 224/8. Another reason to hate Welshmen. :D

235/8. I have the hideous feeling that we are heading for defeat. Again. Perhaps Wales should become a test playing nation. :confused:

Isnt Kasprowicz an Australian? Or has he immigrated to Wales? 180 runs to win and 8 wickets in hand. This must be one of the rare occasions when England loses to Wales. If the Welshmen win that is. Just goes to show what one is capable of once one stops shagging sheep. :D :D

He might be an Aussie. Not sure really. But we seem to have a chap named Kabir Ali who is probably not English so it is quite possible. :confused:

Hey, this thread is still going strong.

There was a queensland bowler called Kasprowicz who played for australia I think his first name was Michael.

Gee If the Welsh win they consider England their bunny.

The Irish beat Zimbabwe and the Scots are doing alright in that one day series thing. A celtic cricket team would rule.



Caught my first twenty20 game on tv today, quite enjoyed it, what do yous make of it I think its good for (english) cricket.

Hi Ted, where have you been? :)

I do approve of the 20twenty version if it brings more interest into english cricket. More interest could mean more, and higher quality players in the future.

Nice to see you back Ted. We hope to keep this thread going till the next world cup or till the moderators ban it, whichever is earlier.:D
First I am hearing about 20twenty. Is it 20 overs a side? That would make the game so much more exciting. A kind of slam bang affair. May be even the Yanks would join in.

Yep. 'Tis 20 over for each sides. A fun way of spending an evening I imagine, without spending a whole day as a test match might.

Trav,
Does he say 'bore da' instead of 'good morning?' I tried learning Welsh once but gave up after I bit my tongue.:)

Exciting match that. Imagine Wales coming within an inch of victory! Losing by 8 runs is not bad at all.

BTW, Kabir Ali was born on 24 November 1980, at Moseley, Birmingham according to his homepage. I thought he was an immigrant from the subcontinent.

Who knows? :)

Unless Zimbabwe lose 8 wickts for about 50 runs, the're home and dry, so it rests of the 3rd match.

I hope not! Personally I don't mind if Zimbabwe win this match. I think their team needs a big morale boost after the thrashing they recived in the Tests, and perhaps in the impending ODI series.
