London Wannabe Cricketers

Are you a cricket fan, but never really play the game? Know your Welegedera from your Kulasekera but hardly know which end of the bat to hold? Join this tribe to discover whether you bowl a heavy ball or extract steepling bounce; find nets in London where the bounce is true and the sledging at a minimum; and maybe get a call-up for Australia, who knows.

Andrew M London Wannabe Cricketers Tribe

Contributorgold Andrew M Played in cricket nets today for the first time in my life (with @david, @simon and @joe). Hadn't really played cricket before, other than with my Dad in the back garden as a kid and a few PE sessions at age 11. It was great fun, and much more physically exerting than I expected. I was ok with the bat but terrible with the ball. It was great to have @david there to give some good tips (and bring all the equipment).

Agreed, this was great fun! I somehow managed to strain my buttock.

Plenty of immaculate straight drives unfurled by yours truly; some of them even quite near the ball. Looking forward to next time, will try hitting one, see how that works out...

Alex K With different formats of the game in, the game demands more skills from players as this is difficult to achieve. Being technically sound is what is required.
