    Pietersen had a great quote in one of the papers yesterday. I don't have it on me, but the interviewer said something along the lines of 'oh, you must owe Shane Warne one [for dropping him on 15] to which KP said 'Nah, I don't think so, I dropped 6 catches this series and nobody bought me a beer!'
    Haha, I can just imagine him saying that....

    my first memory is of mushtaq ahmed bowling against i-don't-know-cos-i-was-too-young, but i got into cricket more after 1999. went to watch pakistan v sri lanka test match, didn't get to meet anyone though BUT the closest player i got to was waqar younis who was fielding near my seat. hi, i'm a deprived geek.

    anyway...

    I was probably better at kayaking than any of you on here, but I haven't done it for a long time.
    What did you used to do, racing? i just prefer mucking about in my playboat, scpecially impressing the new people whit my hand rolls. I mainly do flat water so its hard to do any of the really impressive stuff like cartwheels. Man i hope whereever i go for uni has a Kayak club

    I'm a 1st dan in Hanmudo, which is similar to TKD. I think (not sure) TKD is very much focussed on kicking, with fairly narrow stances

    When Lashings toured to the cricket club nearest to me I got within an inch of Wasim Akram (whose run up was from behind the boundary) and got a signature off Brian Lara, all of those great players in my (well practically mine) back yard!

    I'm not surprised, I mean, he had been in the hotel bar for 17 hours...

    I've practised taekwondo and it's great. Better than karate in my opinion.

    if you wanna do the "really impressive" stuff, then just off the coast of anglesey in late august is normally pretty cool for it. cartwheeling, surfing backwards, somersaulting...

    I wish I was, unfortunately it's true.
    i'll second that. i think they're trying to keep it fairly quiet though, letting him live his life out in peace and allowing his fans to remember the racer he was. which lets face it, he was.

    Has anyone actually bought anything cricket-orientated since the Ashes? They say this may bring up to 100 extra million in revenue.

    I've bought Cricket 2005 (during the 3rd test at old trafford), Cricket Captain 2005 yesturday, and some plastic cricket balls a week ago. Thinking about getting the England test top, anyone else?

    There's shit loads of signed merchandise going on ebay at the moment as well, cashing in on the success of obviously.

    BLESS YOU. Lol.

    All this cricket fever is reminding me of when we won the rugby world cup last year...suddenly all these little kids are claiming to have been playing it forever :p: I admit I only started watching it halfway through the Ashes this year but it still makes me laugh.

    I don't get some of the hysteria to be honest. Yes Australia are/were an awesome team and got outplayed this summer but England came 1st in a two horse race that takes place every 2 years (often less). Vaughan, Flintoff, Pietersen et al. have great careers ahead of them and I'm sure will win the ashes again, probably on more than one occasion. People are going on as if it's a once in a lifetime opportunity like a world cup and I've even heard it being suggested it was england's greatest sporting triumph?!
