    GJ, that’s something I’d like to get back into although I’ve struck a bit of a deal at work to keep me out of boredom for the summer and beat the Students to it.

    I still like the 5 day Test Matches when England play at home. Like seeing all the different grounds too.

    As it’s an unpopular opinion thread, I going to suggest cricket is highly overrated… 5 days and it’s a draw?? Hmm…..

    Yeah Chuckster I’m with you, a few of my rugby league mates chop into me about football 0-0 draws yet they watch test match cricket for 5 pain staking days & they get a draw. Standard test match cricket over – Block, block, block, block, play & miss, block, Over. Yet another thrilling maiden.

    There’s a lot of tactics and strategy in Test Match Cricket.

    I love it particularly the Ashes Series even if you just get there for a day last Ashes Series over here I was at Cardiff next to the Aussie fans brilliant banter and not an inkling of trouble.

    But we all like a thrilling maiden, don’t we? 😉

    Puppy, there’s a lot of tactics and strategy in chess, and I don’t like watching that either…

    I spend a lot of time watching cricket, both kids play, one at county level. 4&5 day cricket can be a bit boring, however sitting in the sun drinking beer all day does compensate for that.

    One day cricket and T20 are far more entertaining and you also get to have a beer whilst watching.

    Chucky, ha,ha, that’s true mate. I guess if you’ve grown up playing Cricket and I played all through school and then played Club Cricket afterwards you’ve grown up to love the game.

    As Pagan says if you want excitement then it’s the T20 and the One dayers that give you that.

    Aus-Eng test matches were one of my faves in the 90s. Miss the ashes England team of 2005, Flintoff and Ghilcrist 🏏
