  • Cordner in the Baggy Green

    Well not quite, but I read a snippet of him apparently playing cricket for a firebirds team? Took 4 wickets apparently. Man of the match of course.

    Anyone know more about our illustrious captain donning the pads?

          I have friends who call one day cricket blasphemy, let alone that T-20 tripe.

            I find it hard to believe that you have friends.

              Will Pucovski has suffered something like 11 concussions. Maybe it would be safer for Cords to come back to league.

                I'm a one dayer kid. But am of an age now I can't get into the T20 at all. I find it a bit disrespectful to bowlers.

                    One reason I hate playing cricket is that the ball's really hard and it's getting thrown at you or belted around the whole time. I can't even catch a cricket ball because it stings so badly (and is likely to damage my hands). That and 'bowling' is just farking weird. Due to some loophole in the way the original rules were written, somebody figured that you can 'bowl' overarm and still meet the definition. This is now how everybody learns to 'bowl'...

                    I'm guessing concussions are less common at this kinda level? My thinking is that the majority of the nasty ones come from either pro grade bowlers being tricky/dodgy or complete un-co's doing stupid stuff because they've got no control. I feel this level probably meets a sweet spot where people aren't good enough to do all the nasty tech stuff, but are good enough to hit the ball instead of some random dude's head.

                      I think that game you are describing is called softball!

                        According to a friend of mine who was at Fox Studios, he was training with the lads. Hope springs eternal.

                          Nope...

                          > In the early days of cricket, underarm bowlingwas the only method employed. Many theories exist about the origins of cricket.

                          ...

                          > Bowling the ball is distinguished from simply throwing the ball by a strictly specified biomechanical definition.

                          > In 2005, this definition was deemed to be physically impossible by a scientific investigative commission. Biomechanical studies that showed that almost all bowlers extend their elbows somewhat throughout the bowling action, because the stress of swinging the arm around hyperextends the elbow joint.

                          ---

                          Cam Smith would love cricket bowling as it's the kinda rule change he woulda implemented. Once upon a time the action was called 'bowling' because that's the name for an underarm action (y'know... like that sport they call bowling). Then one day Cam Smith's great great great great grandpa (who's probably related to Anthony Mundine) came alone, threw the ball over-arm and said 'NUP!!! MY ELBOW WAS STRAIGHT!!!!'

                          Hundreds of years later, scientists did a study and proved that it's physically impossible to throw a ball overarm without bending your elbow at all. However by this stage, the farce that is 'overarm bowling' (I swear they should just let you chuck it rather than having this un-co looking, unnatural action that causes all sorts of spine fractures...etc) had already been normalised, so people just rolled with it.
