How/Why did you start?

Post by Slogga on Fri Feb 22, 2008 1:30 am

How or why did you start playing cricket?
I started after watching the 2005 Ashes! Really got me excited and interested in cricket...I called up my local club and then went to a training session and now they cant get rid of me!

used to hate it, bowling hurt my back, and used to live in scoytland so just got put at 3rd man freezing my balls off. Then i moved to england and there was a keeper spot at my school, and i found out how fun keeping was!
