MY highest score...

Going back to Stickcricket.com for a second, I have the pleasure of announcing that I finally managed to cross the 200-run barrier AND get my highest score. Before I continue basking in my apparent glory, I'd like to draw your attention to the highest scores page on the site...and now that you've looked at it you will see that I'm nowhere close to being among the 'cool guys' of Stick Cricket. Here's proof of my meager score, in case you were wondering...

It's the best I've done so far dammit!!I'm not a 'registered member' because I have neither the patience, nor the inclination to register. It's more of a timepass for me, and I find that a quick 10 overs between whatever is happening is a good way to freshen up and start thinking about something else. Sure the game has plenty of limitations, like it's got all right-handed players, and the graphics aren't much to write home, or anywhere else about, for that matter. But if these are your reasons for not liking it then you've missed what I had to say about the 'timepass' aspect of it. Well, that's all I have to say about that...site...that site...sheesh! Oh here are a couple of screen shots to entice you...or at least to work up your curiosity.


Welcome to Stick Cricket!Here's the screen you're greeted with when you click Play in the top left-hand corner of the screen...right below Home. Notice that I chose the World Champion side to take screen shots of...so I'm not loyal to my country...sue me!

Wishing thee well before the onslaught, brief though it may be, begins.And here's the intro. I was kind of tickled with the commentary/advice screen that comes up. It also comes up between overs. At the start of the match, we have Andy Roberts, an ex-Windies player who was a veritable terror during his time...much like most of the West Indian team...back then. The rest of the Stick Allstars team has a few names that will bring back fond memories...the bigger the buff, the more fond the memories, of course.

Ouch! Not a good time to use one's head.

And here's Simon Katich taking a bouncer to the head from none other than Waqar Younis. When this happens, and by that I mean when you've used your head to your disadvantage, you're automatically out...and as any smart person would tell you, having used your head to play the leather ball, please don't stand up and ask for some more. Well, maybe the smart person is a wuss, but isn't it funny how wusses have a habit of surviving a lot longer?

Well, try it out and let me know what you think.

Here's an addition to this post. I finally got a screen shot of a player turning to face the "human player" and give him the thumbs up. This happens when someone scores a century. The player in this case is Gautam Gambhir. See Gautam smile!
Gautam Gambhir scores a ton...of runs, that is.
