    I just thought of something, NZ is GMT+12, I'm in Calgary - Canada, GMT-7. So that is a difference of 19 hours, HAWK, collision and Fisher will only share the same day with me from midnight to 5am in my time zone. I want to lose my cricket virginity in the light of day (it's a special moment that happens only once)
    Hi

    I run the simulation cricket games, and the website is http://www.simulationcricket.com/

    To sum it up in a few lines, Mike Empuria (Sitepoint.com captain) submits a lineup to me ahead of each match (July 24th [1st ODI], July 26th [2nd ODI] and July 30th [3rd ODI], August 1 - August 5 [Only Test]).

    I input the names into the simulator program, and the results are in turn posted on this website, simulationcricket.com and hawkheadquarters.com (the opposition team for this series).

    jake, if you post the hours in GMT that are best for you, I'll see what I can do.

    You're welcome. Don't forget though, we need you for your bowling. It's Nicky we're looking to for the runs - no pressure Nicky!

    Can I wear my heels? I have some great green ones which are so fashionable, they just go with everything! White is not really my colour.

    Good point. All the cricket teams have a special strip for the one day matches. We will only wear white for the test matches.

    How does everyone else feel about green heels? What colour should the rest of the kit be?

    I have green heels too. That works for me.

    Will it be hot on the pitch?

    We are playing in Australia so I suppose it will be winter. Anything to get out of the heat of Spain at the moment is good.

    Indeed
    The first two games will be in Telstra Dome with the roof closed, so it might be humid

    Yes, this could be very special if bikinis are involved. I've never worn one before ( ) and I find the proposition strangely exciting too. Heels too? I feel pretty, oh so pretty. (I'm gonna be humming that at work all day, I can see it)

    I don't like bikinis, I have a few fat rolls. I do wear tankinis though!

    We still need a couple of openers, a fast bowler and someone to carry on the drinks. Anyone else in?

    They won't be as fast as me though. I'm the fastest in the world, remember? Especially in a bikini and heels.

    Jake, you should start wearing one to work, just to get the feel of it. Heels can take a bit of practice too.

    HAWK, you're encouraging this sort of behaviour from Jake? I'm guessing these are urges he's been suppressing for some time.

    Woohooo to moving up the batting order. Yay!

    I'll drink the drinks! And I'll have a bat if you want.

    It was a good day. I busted out the "I feel pretty" song a couple of times. I avoided the "witty and gay" verse though. The vultures at work would have jumped on that and I've got a rep to protect. Problem is, I'm not really sure what it is. Got some really weird looks, but nothing really more than the usual.

    Maybe if crossdressing leads to promotions, I will start crossdressing at work. Thanks Mike.

    Edit:

    GMT huh? I think in GMT 7am-9am on the 22nd or 6pm on the 22nd to about 7am on the 23rd. If these times will not work, I will be working Saturday the 22nd until probably 11 or 11:30pm GMT.

    I've found that wearing heels to work definitely helps with promotion. I think I'd be CEO if I wore a bikini, esp because the air con makes things a bit chilly, if you get my drift.

    Edit: I think I've sunk to a new low. If only cootie was here, he'd be proud.

    Well, I'm swelling with pride.
    Oh, maybe my pride is swelling. I get confused sometimes.

    The confusion is what makes me nervous. Grade 7 was hellish.
