Nice. You do realise that for 40k, you're probably gonna have to pull out notAxver for a while? (there's a 83.1435% chance that you will, anyway)

I can't bat or field, but I was the best bowler at my school. Shame that I couldn't participate competitively due to my albinism and eyesight.

I used to bowl some mean spin.

Yeah, I was a goodish allrounder by high school standards. Batted a bit, bowled a bit, fielded decently.

The only problem I had fielding was that my reflexes were too, uh, self-protective due to martial arts, and so every time the ball was hit my way I'd jump out of the way, stop myself halfway through and then try to catch it.

No, for 40,000, I want to waste it, just as a subtle way of saying I don't care about post counts that much. Despite the fact they're the meaning of life and so forth.

I was a magnificent slow-spin bowler. I wish i'd had more of a go when i was batting.

I once managed to save a game and salvage a tie on my birthday with my bowling.

That was a good day.

Nice! I remember my first wicket was off a medium-paced high full toss, bloke somehow hit it straight into the air and I C&B'd him.

Ok, my eyes are beginning to hurt. Methinks it's time I went and did something more productive now. Like attempting to sleep in this horrible heat, or taking a shower or something. I'm off, y'all, see ya later!

I was always terrified the ball would be hit at my face and I wouldn't see it until it was too late and had broken my glasses. Usually when I was fielding, the ball was going past me by the time I saw that I needed to field it. I bled runs.

But on the right pitch, I had this great spin delivery that I would bowl really high, but it would come down and not bounce at all and slide under the batsman's bat onto the stumps. I even bowled a former Queensland state cricketer with that.

I traditionally bowled guys, or irritated them into attempting really ill-advised runs.

Nice.

I never actually played competitively. Beyond casual games with my friends, I sometimes just practised with guys on the school team. I got to bowl and they got to practise their batting.

I started out as a medium pace bowler, leaning towards fast-medium, but then I developed an interest in spin. My best deliveries were a somewhat bizarre combination of both finger and wrist spin. Not sure if I can even do them any more.

Productivity? What a waste.

Have a good one!
