Yes five and one lane is fine. But at the moment we only have 3 confirmed including us...

Re: fenner's cambridge nets 29 march - more players please?

I still have this booked 2-4pm 29 march. As there are only 3-5 of us confirmed I've asked my local club if they would take 1 or 2 lanes of the 3. Hope this is OK. Will reduce the costs a bit as well I hope.

Anyone else want to join us?

Surely there must be some more people on this forum interested?

It's all still booked. I've got two lanes for us. I've invited along some local club cricketers who can bowl so the whole thing is still viable.

More players still welcomed though. I can probably still get the 3rd lane if we need it.

2-4pm, 29 march.

I now have 3 lanes booked and bowling machine. There will be 10 or so club players there as well. I'm going to charge everyone 5 a head,  as that is what I am asking the club players for, so *not*the 18 I originally advertised. More people means lower cost...

Let me know if you are coming and I'll provide directions and the door code to get in.

Re: East Anglia/ Herts/Essex nets? Canceled

I'm sure it won't be a surprise that we are cancelling the nets at Fenner's. They are not actually closed yet but I reckon they will be soon as other indoor facilities round here are closing quite rapidly.

Do people think that outdoor nets will be allowed going forward? I'm doubtful about this...

Outdoor net facilities, I don't see a need to close. Large, organised net sessions I would assume will be cancelled for at least a month or two.

I dont think its a matter of whether its indoors or out but rather the fact that exchanging saliva and sweat via the ball (especially within an actual match) is such an integral part of cricket.  Unless they can somehow strictly enforce players not putting saliva or any other bodily fluid on the ball I cant see how the game cannot be seen as a large risk.  Compare that to other ball sports such as golf or tennis

Just my thoughts...

It doesn't transmit via sweat. Saliva I agree with as a risk, especially compared to other ball sports.
