Hmm... Whilst India's bowling is undoubtedly useless, and their fielding terrible, their batting seems to be ticking along rather nicely.  Kohli going along very nicely indeed...

    Kohli is playing an absolute stunner.  Goes past 150 with three 4's in a row. 

    In contrast, Riaz has gone for 50 runs in just 4 overs   :fp

    Winning? Hope it isn't an almighty woof.

    That said, I'd rather not hear Sunil Gavaskar's wet dreams about Kohli.

    Good win by the WI, this a team with not the best possible batting lineup for them. No warm up matches for Australia though.

    No Gayle and no Simmons. At least the bowling's in good form.

    So Ram, got some mates I'm competing with in an IPL fantasy sportal competition so any tips or news about the teams would be much appreciated. Especially any young guns who will have secure spots on their respective teams, or players who did sh*t last year but should bounce back. :D

    No rush and its not like its a demand just I know you keep up with the news, you'd have a fair idea about the strengths of all the sides. :D

    What's the deal with the dirty Foreigners - limit per team, are they all allowed to play?

    No worries, I'll scour out some. There will be some unheard of player who'll succeed, that I can guarantee.

    Why question rules? It's pyjama cricket after all. Seriously though, it's something practised all over the world. County cricket has one international player per side rule (of course Kolpak is different), most countries have two as their limit.

    They should make it to play against Ireland. Can't see Eire losing to Canada and unfortunately can't see them losing to Netherlands either. They have some very good players and were expected to top their group, they lost one match to Namibia.

    I'm questioning them so I know how likely it is that the Aussies I know will get a game. :D So is it 2 per squad? Are squads allowed to have more but say only 1-2 playing in a match?

    42 in 3.2 overs now. Stirling's gone berserk. Robin Jackman came up with an unbelievably insightful line, "The way Stirling's batting, I suppose we may be up for an early lunch"
    Well I never.

    That was a slight bit too quick.

    Netherlands need to score quickly now, all the better that Tom Cooper's in the middle. He's a dubber in sozzie land.

    Tendo's not playing this tournament. He's a Saffie too.
    Borren falls, 4/130, 5 overs to go, 37 to win.

    Wowzers, got too involved with the Netherlands match and forgot about the Bangles.

    Dinzy, is Hampshire your team? Considering Southampton is your club.

    I did go to Hampshire matches when i lived there. as a student it was great to go to some of the mid week matches, things like pakistan A v Hampshire. buy some beer, get in for free and watch the game with 6 other people

    however my first team was Kent. I grew up in Kent and used to go to games as kids. was a member when in my teens and tried to get to as many games as possible. all my best mates at the time hat i rode with also played cricket so was always going to games

    Noice, if only watching cricket in India didn't involve sitting in a baking sun for hours. Still gone to a few Ranji matches, with possibly the same six peole that you watched Hampshire with.
    21 to win 16 balls 5 wickets and Cooper still in.
    England 1/100
