Agree, if you have to take everything that competitively it's a little bit embarrassing, no?

Being competitive and being a (No Swearing Please) loser are very different things, don't let anyone try and trot that out as an excuse! Being competitive is about competition, not winning - I'd much rather play a close loss than a facile win. If you can't deal with losing then sport is not for you, let's be honest.

And its about being competitive with yourself more than anything too, inner competitiveness. Always makes me laugh when people say they have to act a #-=-+ to get up for a game.. no, youre just being a tool fella.. thats not competitive at all.. Just being a tool

Imagine a team chasing 120 being 30-9 inside 15 overs and being the no11 that takes an off stump guard amd squares himself up, and just stands there and doesnt even attempt to hit the ball for 30 overs. Not only does no LBWs make zero sense it also rules out bowled for 95% of batsman. I bet if you total up the wickets are taken by lbw and bowled they would outweigh caught, 43 to 40% the other 7% being run out/stumped. Given the circumstance above i would be 100% certain i wasnt getting out. Rule out bowled and lbw plus not even attempting to hit the ball i would never get caught. If i dont hit the ball i wont be running and if i dont move i cant be stumped... Easy game.

Ridiculous proposal. (All figures are inaccurate to prove a point.)
