Thats surprising and fantastic. Hats off to you GR :thumbs_up: The one other person I mentioned had his Dad who is a cricket fanatic, and buys all games for big screen viewing at home. But yours is a fascinating narration. BTW you dont sound grim at all :D

Its a bit late to be introduced as I am sure many of you would have been familiar with my boring insights and unashamed passion for the game of cricket. My self Danesh Nambiar from kerala.Now working with Citi Bank in Dubai. In the late 20's I have started watching cricket in the early 90's..I can keep my head held high just for the simple reason that I followed entire Sachin's career:two_thumbs_up: I think there is no need to mention who my favourite cricketer is.. I came here through watching videos on youtube.. Thanx Rajeev:rose: As for my name here.. first three letters my name.. next three,ex girl friend's and the next three her son's...:haha: I am too late in ICF. Any way I have thoroughly started enjoying it !

Hi, as i had posted earlier in another thread just now, I am 38, from Chennai, but settled in Bangalore for the past 7 years. in to IT Recruitment field with a small team in Bangalore. I was introduced to ICF by Chandan a week back. I had been visiting as a guest and was really surprised by the superb stats by Doc and also the insight and knowledge of the game by many forummers. The only thing that was stopping me from registering earlier itself , was my addiction to Cricket. If i get pulled in, then I would lose sleeping time,the personal hours i spend with my wife and daughter and also a bit of my office work in the day time. I would be so hooked that i would need a de-addiction therapy, regularly given by Indian team, when they play atrociously on tours!

Welcome to ICF' date=' Rajan. Nice to see so many folks from India registering lately. We were starting to appear like a NRI mafia![/quote'] Dont worry, as long as you have committed founders like what u have here, this will be growing quite fast in to a very active site. if only the fans from rediff.com blogs, ndtv blogs, cricinfo blogs, expresscricket and so many other blogspots are informed about this site, then one visit would convince them that this is the place. who knows, 2 years down the line, we can be instrumental in changing the attitude of BCI or the Govt and contribute positively for the growth and quality of cricket in the country.!

bro, just tell your mates out there to wait for another 2 weeks! then they will realise the beauty and artistry of the oriental willow wizards. they will be drooling about Jaffer's languid on drives, Laxman's wristy flicks from the off stump to mid wicket, Ganguly's courage under fire,the power and glory of Yuvraj, not to mention the firewaorks from Dhoni and the reminders from Dravid and Sachin that they are still good in stitching crucial partnerships that help the team and blunt the bowling.

Sure, i became a convert after reading those great stats for the batsmen and bowlers by Boss. My respect for Nasser Husain went up by a few notches because of his analysis. also it was an eye opener for understanding the performances of bowlers gainst top order/middle order and tail. I do value those stats. spent hours in compiling all by myself . cutting down and pasting in word docs.now i understand where to look for! great work ICF ! way to Go!

>> How did you find us? Ironically by typing the wrong thing into google. Glad I stumbled on the site though - it's definitely one of the more informative and the forum is terrific too.

I am an advertising professional from Mumbai. My love for cricket is hereditary.....it was my father's passion that I picked up and then it kept on multiplying as I spent my student career adoring the cricket of the Tendulkars, Waughs, Warnes, Muralis and Gilchrists. I have played a lot of cricket and modeled myself on Tendulkar's style (wish I could get anywhere close to his ability). So I was a right hand batsman who could bowl occassional off spin as well as leg spin. Now that I am a professional (and the profession of advertising does not leave you with any time), I cant spend time playing the game. So I am living it through forums like these.

Wrong side of 30. Originally from Andhra, went to Karnantaka for dental school. After dentl school did my specialty training in Canada followed by USA. Currently have my own office, practice limited to Orthodontics (i.e. braces/clips) in sunny northern California. However still looking for baywatch babes. Missed cricket badly until I found this site through U tube.

Right place for a fan Came to know of this website through one of my friends ( Kabira here) with whom I played lot of cricket. I would say this is one of the right places to be for a cricket fan. Let me give little bit of introduction of me. Name, I am sure you guys can identify from my used id. I have played lot cricket and still continue doing the same. Infact cricket is something I love the most. I also like to watch, read and write on cricket. Hope to have great time on this forum.

So ... here I am! Hello there! So I'm here finally. How I got here? I was chasing a pair of fine legs that tried to give me a slip and ran into a gully. I asked the third man I ran past whether he had seen someone run up his direction. He point-ed at the car cover lying on the sidewalk and said: a lady with nice long legs just drove away in a red convertible. I ran hard and followed the tire marks all along the ground right outside a cybercafe. I had to meet her by hook or by crook, so I dropped all pretences and entered the room. She was at point blank range and I was totally stumped by her beauty and her dress. Low cut dress, pulled up by hooks on the shoulder had me by the edge. I thought 'nice catch', and was about to ask her out when cricketics got up and appealed "hey, you gotta take a look at the ICF site". And there ended my innings with a nice dame! So in short, cricketics told me about this site almost a year ago, I guess. Hey, better late than never. About myself: From Delhi, in the US since last 10 yrs. A cricket maniac at heart. That you are seeing me here and not playing in the Indian team may be attributed to my dad who thought I would end up sweeping the stadium floor instead! And so that I could afford a nice kit and play around, I turned out to become a s/w engr. and am into Proj. Mgmt. now. Cricket all through this time, though, was very much alive and kicking. I remember as a kid I used to compile/maintain scoresheets of every match India played at home or away. Match stats used to be (most still are) at my fingertips. I played at the school, and college level. I played at Nehru stadium in Delhi as a trainee before I was forced to pull out to concentrate on my studies. I am fortunate to start playing cricket again. Played the last couple of seasons in the Washington Cricket League with some very good players, cricketics being one of them. Glad to be here!
