    Whilst watching England v Pakistan today I realised two things:

    1. We need to get some fielding practice in before the series starts and
    2. Only six countries are represented in the team.

    1. SlitheryImp - Ireland
    2.
    3. Nicky - England
    4. Heman maximus - USA
    5. iTechno - England
    6. Mike Empuria - England
    7.
    8. Hawk - New Zealand
    9. fisherboy - New Zealand
    10. bcr - Australia
    11. jake4974 - Canada

    We still need an opener and a fast bowler so sign up now.

    To start the fielding practice off...

    HAWK...catch!

    That's what I like to hear! I'll keep wicket for you.

    We're playing at the Telstra Dome which

    "Generally, the pitch suits batsmen, as it is nice and bouncy. The ground is fairly large, but don't be fooled, boundaries will be scored easily. A good score at Telstra Dome, would be between 250 - 320, but this of course can differ depending on who is playing."
    Practice those hook and pull shots.

    Well, I was really looking forward to this, but unfortunately I am going to have to withdraw. I'm going to have to work that day.

    No
    Just support your team at all costs, and make sure you warm up and stretch

    Of course - I wouldn't consider going on field in a bikini and heels without the proper stretching. That would be disasterous.

    I'm pleading utter confusion at this point. If anything is required of me, none of those dates work, at essentially any time. If nothing is required of me, then it's all good. GO TEAM!

    Absolutely nothing is required of you.

    I put your name in the team sheet along with the style of batter/bowler that you are. Our team details and the opposition details get put into a computer and the simulation program runs.

    In the case of a one day match the results of the game get posted here along with each player's bowling/batting figures. In a 5 day test match, the results of each day's play are updated at the end of the day.

    So it's a case of GO TEAM!

    Where's the 12th person gone to?

    BTW, it might not be such a good idea to put me in as no. 1 batsman, I can only hit the ball when it is going down legside , and it never looks good when the team is at 1 down for no runs...

    12th Person.

    As to being No. 1 I have every confidence in your ability and you never know, their opening bowler might swing the ball down leg all the time.

    Batter, I'd say I'm a tempura kinda guy.

    Seriously though, my only batting has been in baseball and that was a long, long time ago (at that time slightly above average).
    Bowling; I don't think NA has anything really comparable to Cricket bowling AFAIK. At least nothing I've participated in.
    Hopefully bowling doesn't matter. Hopefully there isn't field position rotation. Man, I think I better learn something about criket.
