I'm having no luck whatsoever convincing the wife that we need a TV in our shop.

FWIW, Chris Rogers opened the batting for Australia, and he is colour blind.
Yes, and Garry Ballance for England. Both struggled with the pink ball the most from what I've read.
Correct. Rodgers was pretty open about that during the initial planning phase of the night tests. He was getting old anyway, but he retired as soon as the night tests were confirmed.

The irony is that everyone seems to struggle with the pink ball. Not because of the colour, but because of the way it behaves, esp at dusk. More development required!

Great thinking! I would certainly flood in, although we don't talk about floods at this time.

No, don't! 5 days of virtually Zero revenue so far, and it's still raining :( But that's a whole other thread.

Back to the shop tv. She reckons I won't get any work done if there's a tv showing sports. And you know what, she might be right.

I'll just stick to the cricbuzz app and ABC Radio playing in the back room.

I've done a few gigs where I managed to watch the footy while playing a set, so I'm sure you can wield the scoop easily enough while the telly is on

I'm new to Cricket, so can ask some spectacularly dim questions of my cricketing mates. Secretly they love the opportunity to show off their vast knowledge which, as you know, for Aussies, is all-encompassing. I still haven't had an answer to this one, though:
We were discussing the pink ball and the sightscreens and "watching the ball come out of the hand" and my question was:
"Can the bowler wear a glove, the same colour as the ball?"
Apparently, no-one's ever asked that of them before and people looked at their feet and shuffled for a bit, before saying,. "How about Warnie, eh?!" and the conversation moved on....

Law 41 (The fielder)
Protective equipment
No member of the fielding side other than the wicket-keeper shall be permitted to wear gloves or external leg guards. In addition, protection for the hand or fingers may be worn only with the consent of the umpires.

Fielding the ball
A fielder may field the ball with any part of his person but if, while the ball is in play he wilfully fields it otherwise, (a) the ball shall become dead and 5 penalty runs shall be awarded to the batting side. See Law 42.17 (Penalty runs). The ball shall not count as one of the over.
It is not permissible to wear a glove while fielding except for the wicketkeeper. A fielder who does so (including using a hat in his/ her hand to field the ball) concedes 5 runs for each instance.
The bowler would be included as a member of the fielding side.

Also batsmen can ask bowlers to remove wrist bands etc that can distract them. Dean Jones did this on an occasion that he regretted.

no they can't Ox. Or even a wrist band.

I forget the names, I think Dean Jones asked Curtley Ambrose to remove his sweat band from his bowling arm wrist. Curtley got mad and took 7 wickets for next to nothing.

Pete, organise a group of ten blokes , that your wife doesn't know, to come in one day, and get one of them to ask if you have the cricket on tv. when you say no, they all get mad and storm out ! TEN BIG blokes. It's so crazy it just might work.....

Oh my, that spell of bowling Ambrose produced that day will stay in my mind forever! Absolutely Lethal! And the whole time I was thinking "but Dean Jones had every right to ask him to remove the sweat band". I did it myself as a young player many times, specifically to piss the opposition off. I found it made them play worse ....... Someone forgot to tell Ambrose that :)

I never called the wrist band, but if I was getting quietly sledged by slips or the keeper, I would stand up from my batting stance as a fast bowler got half way to the crease and look straight at the fieldsman. Do it a few times and you will get some short stuff- I was a good hooker and puller. Yes, the stuff that Ambrose unleashed was incredible.

Sledging between balls is perfectly fine (within limits). But if fielders are talking as the bowler is running in, that's poor sportsmanship. I wouldn't put up with that either, and neither would an umpire.

One venue we've played at a few times does the footy on a projector screen (as wide as the stage) behind/above the stage. One night they wanted us to start whilst the footy was still going. I was turning around a fair bit that night....

Yeah I'm guilty of lots of banter in the past - some stick in the mind tho.
One day a diminutive teenage opening batsmen came out to crease (I opened the bowling for my team back then) without gloves or pads. So I immediately asked him if he'd brought a condom etc etc. He hit me for 6 off the first ball, then followed it up with another 6. That shut me up.... He got 50-ish off about 15 balls before we got him out, including an ambitious reverse sweep off a brute-pace Yorker of mine. Freak! I've never seen that before!
After the game he comes up to me and says, "You're the first guy to hit in me a few seasons" (I'd collected him with a bouncer in the ribs, and a back-of-the-hand slower ball to the thigh). It didn't help the beers taste any better... Later we found out he played for the warriors development (youth) squad, and had been told he wasn't allowed to play in our division again. I didn't feel so bad about it after that! :lol:
