Its been a long time coming folks but heres the latest member interview! Its a good-un  8)

What standard of cricket do you play?
Not very high, don't take cricket especially that seriously. Football's always been my first sport, cricket equipment is sometimes more fun than the actual game! I don't bother with training, just play the game for fun and if I score a few runs then great. I pride myself on quality fielding though.

Best Cricketing moment?

Taking a diving catch off my brothers bowling in his first Snr game.

Best bat ever owned? How Many bats have you owned/used/experienced?
Fusion Superbest or Impala Redback probably used 40+ but owned and used for more than a game probably no more than 10. Often just buy bats as they're cheap, use them once and if they're not amazing I'll sell on for a profit.

Ever been scammed when buying/selling cricket gear?
Nah, had some stuff nicked from my bag. Someone took a fancy to the set of Fusion gloves I had, managed to steal two LH ones so now I'm stuck with 2 RH Fusion gloves!

Funniest on field moment?
Managing to take a wicket more than likely, very rarely bowl and when I do it's often embarassing.

Tell us something we dont know about Fusion?   Grin
There's going to be big changes for next year.

Best Sledge/ sledging moment?
Never have sledged, tend to stay quite quiet on the field. Occasionally make a few quips, but that's usually about our own players.

Cricket Role model?
KP probably.

Cricket goods buying tip for everyone lol?
Choose a bat on feel rather than stickers or endorsements.

KP may be a strange choice but he's really gained my respect for a few bits he's done to help out friends. He's been given the label of cocky and disliked by the media but from friends who have dealt with him and people I know well in the England set up they've all said he's completely different.

When he's on form there's also few like him, I think he's a great choice of captain for England.

Through Ebay really, mainly just bought bats to use but when I didn't like them I ended up selling. Made a good profit on a few and began to realise what was valuable in a bat. So imported a few bits from India and built up a few good contacts via that and the forums.
