What would seem sensible now if it doesn't break any hidden CfD protocols and technicalities is that now the issue has been raised, we have a discussion here at WT:CRIC about whether categories for domestic club captains are worthwhile and necessary, and if so, do we standardise them across the project rather than just the English clubs, or if we should just delete the English ones and be done with it. If the latter is the case, surely nothing would stop us all giving our individual support in any CfD that arose having previously agreed that was what was necessary?
Thanks G O'F - I was thinking about the length of the thread really - going nowhere - rather than you're latest reply anyway. Seriously people. I'm glad I'm a member of this WikiProject, because from what I have seen here on more than one occasion, anyone that does something we don't like slightly gets lambasted and made to feel like they shouldn't exist on Wikipedia. I'm ashamed of the insults and complete lack of courtesy offered by the vast majority of members, and sincerely hope that they don't act like this in real life.
Just because we don't like what he is doing, doesn't mean we should dislike him, or have a right to insult him. Harrias talk , 18 June UTC. If anyone can spare some time to make sure there are no errors and correct any there are. Is this something that the project would like to see created? I don't have any sources, or any real knowledge of the subject to do it justice as I am a very part time contributor to this project occasional clean up only , so I'm just posting here in case any one is keen to create it. No pressure, of course. It's a great idea.
I'll add to it gradually but any help will be welcome. Just a heads-up to say that these lists should be at List of England Test wicketkeepers etc for reasons we keep going over keepers for England, not from England. If nobody objects, I'll get these ones moved now while you're starting on them. Fooian cricketers Foo cricketers There are a couple of sections for further discussion. I have included a list of the domestic captains Lists alluded to in the previous withdrawn CfD.
Are these necessary? Please check through, make corrections, add things. Probably best if any discussion is here though. I was just thinking of ways to keep track of wholesale changes Category discussions for example by using the Related Changes tool. This can probably be done via use of the Project talk-page banners. Basically the text is the same without the class assessment material.
Is this necessary, or can we convert them all to the more comprehensive banner? I've prodded it, but had to bring it to people's attention. Hey, what happens to the ball overnight during a test match? Always wondered, does the umpire or referee have it? Locked in umpires' room whenever they are not with it, I understand.
That includes lunch and tea. I wonder how often a ball gets lost while it is in the umpires' care? I noticed that the flags used in many cricketing articles are the current flags for the country concerned, something which, strictly speaking, is in violation of Wikipedia's policy. Flags that spring to mind are the unoffical Australian per flag, the two South African flags: and and so on.
It is also suggested that for purposes of cricket, the West Indies Cricket Board's flag be deemed a "national" flag. This is in line with Wikipedia policies. Any comments, or would this be stirring up a hornets nest?
Martinvl talk , 25 June UTC. I was giving this problem some more thought, and I've come up with another possible solution. I can predict that possibly this one won't get much support, but I think it's better to put it out there anyway!
A Seasonal Beast
So far, we've been trying to cram more and more information into these infoboxes, so we can fit Test, ODI, T20I, First-class, List A and Twenty20, and anything else we can think of into the box, with all kinds of statistics. Which is all well and good, except that already we have pages like Jahid Ahmed where the box is a lot bigger than the content itself. Obviously a fair counter argument is that pages shouldn't be that short and as a WikiProject our goal is to eliminate all suck articles by expanding them. But that simply isn't all that realistic.
So, I controversially wondered what would happen if we shortened the infobox instead. Now, I've rather gone for it with this, and I suspect even if this gains support we'll add some stuff back in batting and bowling averages for example! However, I've come up with a few mock ups.
Now, I hear you all yelling "But all those statistics that we love! Although not currently part of my mock-up articles it's 1am, gimme a break! This is the larger of the snags, as a number of members of this project don't seem keen on any such tables at the bottoms of pages. It would prevent the infobox getting huge and unruly. Although I came up with an infobox with dropdowns and the such, I don't really like the idea of them; especially for page and image formatting! Right, so On baseball: it's interesting how batting stats are not listed for pitchers.
I know in the American league the pitchers don't usually bat. But the National league pitcher Tim Lincecum bats and his stats are not shown. Apples talk , 30 June UTC. I've always thought that having the squad numbers next to a player's teams was a bit pointless.
Does anyone else agree that they are not needed? Apples talk , 4 July UTC. A user called MusicMagic95 has moved a number of cricket ground articles so that they bear the "official" ground names including the sponsor name, even though cricket followers and scorecards in the media hardly ever use them. As well as the question of familiarity, some county clubs change their ground's sponsor very frequently, so that using the "official" name would mean we'd always be changing articles' names. He's made alterations to List of cricket grounds in England and Wales to reflect his changes, so that article gives an overview of what he has done.
I think Swalec should be reverted to Sophia Gardens on the same principle as above. Swalec is a limited term name to and they may well revert at the end of that time. What do others think? I remember we had a similar discussion somwhere about the Cardiff ground somewhere last year. I strongly support the re-naming the articles to their former non-sponsered names. I definitely agree with Johnlp that the title should include the town or city. I recently moved The Circle cricket ground to The Circle, Kingston-upon-Hull for the obvious reason that the former could be anywhere. Having said that, it is nowhere now because they built the KC stadium on top of it but never mind.
The English county clubs are, I suppose, more definite entities than the Aussie state associations and so we have Yorkshire County Cricket Club and not Yorkshire Whatevers. Any thoughts? Oxford piling on the runs in the University match - in the first innings, which I think is a record. Michael Taylor - "pick" of the bowlers with - is one of my colleagues at CricketEurope - one of our statisticians.
Andrew nixon talk , 7 July UTC. It is the centenary of the remarkable Eton v Harrow match held on 7 and 8 July The article is largely based on a couple of articles on Cricinfo and some contemporaneous newspaper reports, plus bits of biographies, but further contributions to this new article would be most welcome. A couple of people have added the following to Geoff Boycott.
Although the source does concur that the pub exists, it does not say it is the only one, it just does not mention any others named after living people:. Other pubs noted by Major Bible as being named after players include two Dr. Might not be a big deal, but I don't know whether the fact that there is such a pub is even notable anyway. I can't find a source that states that he has been recognised as the only living player with a pub named after him, and that this is thought significant.
Does anyone know who old the oldest living first-class cricketer is and whether that person has an article? I have just created a page for the Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire cricketer Adrian Cade. His Cricinfo page says he has played 4 List-A matches, while his CricketArchive page says he has played 3. I trust CA far more as a statistical source than CI, just a case of verifying which is correct.
Thought it may be about to end, is the Bangladesh v England record the longest time a team has gone unbeaten against another team in all formats? How did England play? For all this talk I see about Bangladesh improving, every time I've followed CI text or had TV coverage of some game, the other teams appear to be pretty lethargic and lazy with a lot of lazy fielding, and often in a Test the bigger team wakes up after a day of rank complacency and disrespect and rolls back the Bangla gains in a session.
I wonder if as they creep up to NZ level whether the others will simply start being switched on. I have been having a play around with the last on my sandbox and included all grounds which have hosted major cricket matches, apart from the Welsh counties - I'm getting there! I think there are some things I could do to improve it, such as subdividing the counties into first-class, Minor and others. Other improvements would be to make collapsible boxes, which I can't do for the life of me!
I would also list all of the major teams that have used that ground and period for which they used it: County Ground Southampton Hampshire Any suggestions and reviews of what I've got so are would be most welcome! There's an interesting piece by Scyld Berry in today's Telegraph on the relationship between cricket and baseball. Apparently the earliest known mention of baseball comes from Shere in Surrey, less than ten miles from Guildford, from where we have the first definite mention of cricket and both places are less than ten miles from my home. Please add comments here.
Lugnuts talk , 22 July UTC. I was tidying up a stub article on a Conservative MP, Arthur Heath , and he turns out to have also been a cricketer. Cricket isn't my thing, so I'm not sure if the very brief mention I've made there of his cricketing career fits the bill. Maybe someone with more knowledge of cricket could take a look at the article and tweak as appropriate. If Sri Lanka win or more, they become World 1.
So he might as well stay on for another two matches! I've requested pending. I wonder how many players have played for the team of their surname. Need more eyes on this as there have been plenty of vandalism edits lasting the best part of a day or more YellowMonkey vote in the Southern Stars and White Ferns supermodel photo poll , 26 July UTC.
Jardine on the main page as TFA. YellowMonkey bananabucket! See Template:CricketRecentChanges. I have a faint recollection only. Seems it was a rival to Hong Kong International Cricket Sixes which didn't get off the ground in Needs some referencing and background from someone who knows a bit more about it.
Or is just non-notable? Since attendance figures are rarely released for cricket matches, I think this is a dangerous can of worms to open just for one series. Furthermore, since the matches are played across five days, with separate tickets for each day, it is entirely likely that numbers will be duplicated, and the figures given would not be an accurate reflection of the number of people who actually watched each match. Therefore, I would like to ask for others' opinions regarding the addition of attendance figures to cricket match summaries.
Members of this project are invited to address the requests for images listed. Please note that some articles may now have an appropriate photograph and that the need-image flag has simply not been removed, this can also be checked using the Image Existence Checker link on the category page. If a page has been incorrectly moved please inform me on my talk page. If someone would like to add one of those mini scoreboard thingies to it, it would enhance it. True -- S. I'm glad people like it. I think the sources demonstrate its notability. I also suspect the older cricket writers - Neville Cardus , perhaps - will have more to say on the subject.
There is an interesting although reversed prefiguring of the match in Chapter 12 of Horace Annesley Vachell 's book The Hill. Anyway, I have now returned to my hobby horse from about a year ago link , link of Test umpires. Kantilal Kanjee was apparently the first non-white umpire in first-class cricket in South Africa. Arani Jayaprakash stood at the bowler's end when Anil Kumble took his for.
Krishna Hariharan umpired just two Test matches, in which Bangladesh was beaten within 3 and 4 days respectively. Gamini Silva was a policeman. Evan Watkin Cooray , Kevan Barbour Eric Tindill has died about days short of his th birthday, which still makes him the oldest Test cricketer of all time. He's certainly now the oldest, and due to be 99 later this week.
Johnlp talk , 2 August UTC. There's quite a long obituary in today's Daily Telegraph , which should be available on the paper's web site. I had a crack at him, and Eric Hill fascinating war record; and interesting parallels between parts of the Daily Telegraph's obituary and our article written by Johnlp last October. Sam Loxton seems to be the oldest living Australian Test cricketer seemingly not mentioned in the featured article on him , Reg Simpson is the oldest Englishman, and Andy Ganteaume the second oldest West Indian.
I have nominated List of One Day International cricket records for featured list removal here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets the featured list criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks; editors may declare to "Keep" or "Remove" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. Here I am checking my watchlist and I discover that several first-class cricketer articles have been deleted. Could someone please cast an eye over these? I think part of the problem is, because they are players for Kandy Youth Cricket Club, it looked to the PROD-der that they were youth fixtures, whereas they were actually first-class cricketers.
If anyone could cast an eye and see that it would be okay for me to reinstall them, that would be awesome. I know they do pass guidelines, but as long as someone else has seen this before I do anything silly Thank you in advance, everyone. I will attempt to poke my head in occasionally. Slightly off piste here, but I was surprised to see that at least three of the players in this match were also first-class cricketers - Ken Taylor Huddersfield Town; and Yorkshire and England , and Stuart Leary and Derek Ufton both Charlton and Kent.
It seems slightly less remarkable for people like Eric Tindill , where there is a shallower pool of talent. I suppose someone like Ian Botham is a recent example of a good all-round sportsman, although he obviously concentrated on the cricket rather than the football. I should have known there would be an article listing these multi-talented sportspeople - List of English cricket and football players.
Presumably the list of double professionals in football and cricket is rather long? List of multi-sport athletes is dominated by American football and baseball.
Anyone interested in helping to convert them. Don't forget all of the others using standard but deprecated templates! Plenty of work to be done! I think I agree that Gentlemen v Players match is not notable - not at all in the same category as the Gentlemen v Players matches of old.
His article on Chance to Shine was speedily deleted without much ado.
I was on the cusp of improving the very stubby article when it disappeared, but I saved my version anyway. I am not entirely sure if there are any specific notability guidelines for charities or charitable appeals, but I think it is notable on general principles, and there are decent sources. Any comments before my version gets swept away too? The proposed speedy deletion of the match article failed on a technicality so I've moved it to the full AfD which you can find here.
We don't seem to have an article on this, and it isn't covered adequately in the biographical artle on Basil D'Oliveira himself, which is pretty short even if you consider him purely as a player. I guess that most of us prefer to write about cricket rather than politics, but the lack of an article seems a serious omission. Unfortunately I don't feel that I have the time to write a substantial article from scratch myself. Obviously it is an article where one would have to be very careful not to let POV intrude. Here's Arthur Gilligan and two others I can't identify.
They played in three matches at the W.
