There's a tennis group - is there anyone interested in a cricket group?

Personally, I am interested in the international games (posting as I listening to coverage of the Australia vs England One Day International) but I see no reason why it shouldn't be all cricket.

I am listening to Test Match Special via the InterWeb - I have no access to television "as it is broadcast"

The Australian coverage is...different....
Possibly lacking cake.

We're having a pretty good cricket summer here in NZ - watched the end of the NZ/Sri Lanka ODI today. Good some good matches coming up, and we're playing well (hope that continues)!

I'm not a big cricket fan but I did notice the clock in Civic Square was down to 21 days and 15 hours (about 2 hours ago) before the World Cup starts.

Being a Yorkshire lass, cricket is in my blood, though I don't watch it much these days.

My great grandfather played for Yorkshire and my great-great uncle (his brother) played for Yorkshire and England in the late 1890s/early 1900s. These days they probably wouldn't have got into the team, as they were wicket-keepers, who batted at number 10 or 11. Modern wicket-keepers need to be able to bat a bit as well.

Since those heady days, no one in my family, to my knowledge, has risen above local club level cricket.

I'm another cricket fan - listened this morning to most of the England innings in bed but had to go out and missed the rest, shame England lost by just one ball.

I'm a Gloucestershire supporter - any more out there?

I'm a Hampshire member, though haven't managed to get to a match for a couple of years. Now we're back in Div 1, we'll get Yorks coming down again :D

I'm a Lancastrian. One minute you're county champions, the next you're getting relegated ... then you're coming back up, then you're going down again ...

& I finally made it to an Ashes Test match in 2013 - a job ticked off my life's to-do list :lol: .

After last night's results, I'd have liked to see the England middle order stand up the same way as New Zealand's did.

Warwickshire, of course, though only from a distance ATM. I will get to Edgbaston some day.

I'm an England fan (albeit a disgruntled one, given the way the side has imploded over the past couple of years). My county is Worcestershire, but because I live in Australia, I also barrack for Victoria (in the inter-state Sheffield Shield comp) and the Melbourne Stars (in the Big Bash League).

I got sunburnt at Edgbaston (watching a one-dayer between Lancashire and Warwickshire when I was a student at Birmingham). I think I may be one of very few people to have had this experience :roll: .

In my previous post, I forgot to say that my maternal grandfather was an avid cricket follower. As a teenager, I used to go with him to Yorkshire matches sometimes, and occasionally to the Saturday of the Headingley test match.

That was in Boycott's heyday, though he used to drive the spectators mad with his slow batting sometimes.

Interestingly, my more illustrious cricketing ancestors were on my paternal grandmother's side.

I do have an England cricketer as a sideshoot on my family tree - AE Dipper played for Gloucestershire and once for England, at Lord's, in 1921 against Australia
He's something like 3rd cousin twice removed or thereabouts.

Warks here. Got to my first match last year and saw the Bears beat Leicestershire in the final group game of the T20, during the course of which we heard that Yorkshire had lost to Notts (I think that was the result we needed to go through). Had an invite to finals day from a lovely old gent I met on the train back from Uni, but I was rather hungover and couldn't make it...

Not really a cricket fan, but I did once have a letter published in the Wisden magazine!

Joining slightly late! I'm a keen New Zealand supporter and sort of following Lancashire as my family come from up there. :)
