    Good day everyone!
    My name is Steven. I'm studying electronics engineering in Australia and I just found this website. I must say the material on here, even though it is incomplete is quite good!

    I'm currently doing all the basic stuff (most i already know) but in time I will be able to answer a few questions and join in discussions....

    Cheers,
    Steve

    he was Australian cricket captain and a good one at that.
    its disheartening that only a few nation know abt the game.

    That explains it :D

    I don't follow cricket at all, although I live quite close to the Headingley stadium where they often play something like test match or one day test or whatever they are actually called :p

    The most capped international test cricketer in history and one of the greatest cricketers of all time (even if he spent a large portion of his career taunting English cricketers!) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Waugh

    He also had a test cricket playing brother called Mark Waugh, who wasn't a bad player himself.

    Edit: Didn't realise there was a second page!

    We're a cricketing nation as well, and frankly, I find the long games like watching paint dry.......

    Greetings to Steven from across the ditch... ;)

    Thats a curiosity, because amongst the hard-core Cricket fans in the UK the longer form of the game is the most popular. To really appreciate 5-day Cricket one must really embrace the tactics involved, which involve factors such as the complex rules of Cricket, the weather (one of the most important particularly here in the UK), and the strengths and weaknesses in your opponents team and how this affects the game at a particular point in the 5-days.

    One-day Cricket is good to get drunk to! :D
