Like Sean I come from Yorkshire, and, just like him I am proud of our summer game of cricket. Both of us support one of the most successful first class county club in the world of cricket.
The current captain of England, Michael Vaughan was raised in the city of Sheffield and plays for Yorkshire along with one of the world's leading fast bowlers, Matthew Hoggard.
If it is a game which puzzles you and you would like to know more.Just leave me a message.

I'm a cricket fan also - love one day matches AND tests. (Perhaps I shouldn't admit to the fact that as an Australian I support Australia - so that's definitely not something I'd have in common with Sean!)
Do you ever get to see cricket live, Anne?

Yes Ankadel I do watch as much live cricket as I can. I am a member of the Yorkshire County Cricket Club and attend one day and county games as often as possible. Usually, in this part of the world the problem is weather interrupted games. Until a 2006 your Darren Lehman played for us. His brother -in-law Craig White, former England all-rounder, still does.

HI Anne...

I live in Massachusetts, USA and needless to say we don't get alot of televised Cricket Test and/or IDO matches here. I do keep an eye out for the ones that are and always watch. I'm a fan of England and watch Sky Sports on FSC and do my best to keep up with England and Yorkshire Cricket. Maybe you could give us a short match update for those of use less fortunate not to be able to watch the matches live.

Congratulations to Paul Collingwood and the England team for winning their one day series against Sri Lanka.
The full tour is yet to come......

Picture the scene.. eleven white clad men on one team.. the fielding side.
The men of Nottinghamshire.. the ground Headingley in Yorkshire.. two Yorkshiremen batting in poor light.. when play is brought to a halt! Not for bad light, rain or even a naked streaker, but because an urban fox, decides to take a shortcut through the outfield of the cricket ground!
Yes it did really happen.. today at about 3.15pm BST.
I know because I was there!

Congratulations to England for retaining 'The Ashes' so convincingly in Australia.
But I am sad to see that Paul Collingwood has retired from the Test Match arena.
