I did enjoy that piece, however also did a little further digging into the etymology of that particular word...

@StaggerBreaths It's actually a box I believe, but also derogatory. Thingy Firdose wrote a rather amusing piece about Afrikaan cricketing vocabulary. Turns out the word for wicketkeeper translates to "little pole watcher" which works for me on many levels.

Root has 8 balls left, lot dismissals around this number balls faced
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 2:39:19 PM
I hope Stokes is celebrating wildly and ridiculously.
Also, is it okay for Cricinfo to print 'doos' in their text? I thought it was the South African equivalent of a Jeremy Hunt?
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 2:38:02 PM
Two Counties providing three players to the England side today, well played to Durham to manage to win without three of their stars
by nickcricket7/6/2017 2:37:59 PM
Here you go folks, this'll give you a laugh. If you think you're having a bad time on fantasy cricket, here are the scores made by my 'batsmen' this week: Sangakkara: DNP Ingram: 15 & 0 Handscomb: 2 & 0 Collingwood: 4 & 6 Wessels: 6. Given that a duck results in -20 points, that's a grand total of -7 for this week. Thank you, lads.

I feel sorry for bowlers playing at Beckenham

Root moves to 77, just a single to move to my #RootRaffle score

@JoeWilliams Yep, Brook also has a broken hand to add to the playing woes

Big developments today, Ben Stokes and leaped Bairstow to be England's third best batsmen
by nickcricket7/6/2017 2:31:25 PM
Been in back to back calls for 1 1/2 hours, popped back to find the inevitable crushing loss to 'set has occurred. All I can say is BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, that Yorkshire was bloody rubbish.

Denly passed 1000 runs for the season, almost half of which have come in the last 2 games - he's on form

The extra four was quite funny though.

by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 2:27:46 PM
I don't get people feeling sorry for bowlers that bowl someone off a no ball - if he'd released the ball 6 inches earlier it wouldn't have hit the stumps and Stokes wouldn't have been out anyway!
by dez dezzy7/6/2017 2:27:36 PM
Does he celebrate when he gets that single?
by nickcricket7/6/2017 2:26:52 PM
If you're a locker, SDHM, I think you're hoping he gets that single...
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 2:26:06 PM
Now we just need an out obstructing the field. Over to you, Sabina Park...
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 2:25:39 PM
Of course if Stokes has any sense of humour he'll now go and get out next ball.
by SDHoneymonster7/6/2017 2:25:37 PM
Ben Stokes celebrates half century when he only have 49, top banter at Lords
by nickcricket7/6/2017 2:24:54 PM
Stokes celebrating his 50 when he's actually only on 49. This day has had everything.

So we have gone beyond Dave Knibb on 65, baptrimble went for Root's current score of 71 then after that it is me on 78
by nickcricket7/6/2017 2:23:56 PM
Rather selfish from Pringle. Burnham needed 7 for his century, at which stage Durham required 16 - Pringle went and got the lot!
by dez dezzy7/6/2017 2:23:44 PM
Jon Culley at Warwickshire v Middlesex 210-8
Another twist. Higgins caught short leg by Hain off Patel with first ball of new spell. Still 24 needed.
