So how much mid-week cricket do you actually play in Cambridge? Not much, by the sounds of it.
...
 I'm trying to ascertain the extent to which you are trolling.
...
Anyone who has played cricket in Cambridge would know the answer to all of those questions,


not as much cricket as you clearly, but I have played every weds for the past 3 years and perhaps seen one player in shorts in that time. (except perhaps for juniors just getting into the game.

not trolling at all - whats to troll? I just wanted to know what club/league you had experienced this lack of whites as it is such a different experience to my own. Seem a bit defensive!

As to the questions -
The reason I have not tried to answer them is that they are either so specific as to make no sense to most people (including me) or so unclear that they could mean anything. You are aware I assume that there is cricket going on other than your specific league in the cambridge area? Perhaps you play in a microenvironment of the city itself where people might know who plays at fitzwilliam on a monday night but none of the teams I play against do. We do have games at robinson, clare, and (I think) jesus on saturdays but that does not help me answer your question does it?
I could very easily ask you a bunch of odd questions about my league that you would not be able to answer - I would not assume this meant you are not local, just that you are unfamiliar with some extremely specific facts regarding a league you do not play in.

anyhow - if you dont want to share thats fine - no skin off my nose. Good luck for the rest of your season.

I was trying to figure out what league you were talking about. As such, the first two questions were about the CCA. You say you play in the that league, but you don't know what the AP list is and you don't know who Martyn is?

Are you sure you play in the CCA? In Cambridge, England? The CCA I am talking about is a Saturday league, not a Wednesday league.

@SLA , would it not just be easier to name what team you play for?

I've played for nine different teams in four different regions of the UK over the course of ~15 years since leaving school at everything from County Prem/ University 1sts down to the lowest levels of filthy amateur cricket, but I'm not really sure why the names of any of them are particularly relevant to this discussion.

Not sure why I am persisting with this but here goes... - perhaps AP stands for available players? the loan of players system? - If this is correct I am not a captain so does not concern me. Ive never looked at it and probably never will.

Martin is not martin livermore then? - thought Id already answered that one. again as non-captain I dont need to deal with admin issues such as sending in the scorecards/results.

Ive already explained that I play in the CCA junior leagues - Junior 1. 

So, at the risk of repeating myself - are you willing to share which midweek league regularly has large numbers of players turning up in casual kit? ......  In fact - never mind. I don't actually care that much. life is too short.

CCA J1 is a Saturday league, not a midweek league.

Let's be clear, you're the one that started this, by expressing profound disbelief at the veracity of my statement, as it couldn't possibly be true as you played cricket somewhere in the region of Cambridge and had never personally witnessed this in the league you play in which you don't seem to be able to think of the name of. This was a little childish, seeing as you clearly don't play much midweek stuff in Cambridge at all, so its quite likely that there could be a whole lot of cricket going on that you were completely unaware of.

Pet hate - two people who continue a pointless argument over a forum. Private message eachother or knock it on the head. It really doesn’t matter

Becoming even more of a farce than Shaun Udal's Mum forgetting to wash his whites again before that big game for the Dog and Duck.

Tell you what, this is a great advert for the CCA.

I just need to get on the blower to Martyn, head down the Fitz on Tuesday night and make sure my name's not on the AP first.

and remember to watch out for the Crocodiles mind, I hear they've been causing chaos amongst the punters on the Cam.
