Rolling some Bloggers...

I had been meaning to do this for a long time but just had not found the time.

Today was one of those days when I just got down to it.

I have updated my blog roll and a number of old and new bloggers have made their entries.

Welcome on board everyone.

Some of them are really old champs, but for some reason or the other they were just not mentioned here on Well Pitched.

JRod's other one where he talks about Victoria has been rolled along with another two about balls - one without any and another with a pair of gold.

Surprisingly or not, they are all Australian!

Also Australian are the historical lessons from Stuart and the action caught from the stump camera by Stu. I wonder if they are the same person. Not sure. Nevertheless, welcome to Well Pitched Stu & Stuart.

I've added a whole new section for the cricket websites that you will see at the end of the blog roll on the right. Cricinfo, rightfully so, moves away from the blogs and into the websites.

How many of you desire to be in that section?

I have added a few to the general blogs as well. These are those that I could not relate to any one test playing nation because they write about everything, much like us. Or not really, we do claim to be a Pakistani blog.

So on the general ground we've got Brian Carpenter and his perfectly rolled pitch with different shades of green where Kartikeya is viewing Achettup keeping it short of a length to Dreamdancer who continues to play across the line.

Elsewhere on the general ground there is a mysterious person ducking some beamers.

Surprisingly I stumbled upon some cricket bloggers from Pakistan. For some time Wasim, Khansahab, and I thought we were the only ones. There are quite a few of them over at CBP. Welcome on board boys.

We can never have enough of the Indians and as always they continue to dominate our blog roll.

Here we have Sam bowling his arm balls to a 12th man who keeps playing chinese cuts to them. They are joined by Sumith who defines a new position in the field - the cricket keeper.

There is also Kaushik updating us with his daily stuff and Jagadish who goes a step ahead with updates 24x7.

Another Indian on board is Angshu, who prefers to catch the action from the pavilion, quite the opposite of Megha who rather stares right into the action from silly mid on. We have yet another maiden from India joining Leela.

I finally created a separate categry for our very own Damith. I couldn't leave him in the general blogs. Not after his appearance in Sri Lankan newspapers.

After wondering why there were no South Africans writing about the new number 1 team in the world, I finally managed to find Leo Townsend! He may be off the mark but the South Africans haven't been off it lately.

The Kiwis have been growing in numbers as well and one of them happens to be a test cricketer.

Iain O'brien's blog was heavily advertised by Jrod recently and it turned up on Cricinfo as well. Welcome to Well Pitched's roll O'brien.

He's not alone as The Rave's Beige Brigade joins him as does a very interestingly named blog - Crucket. I'd heard of Kricket with a K, but cricket with a U? Thats new!

I had ignored the English for a long time but with subcontinental type controversies hitting them, I could no longer.

Hence I brought together an Old Batsman, a Village Cricketer, and a Night Watch Girl, to study the Reverse Swing Manifesto so they could enjoy the last wines of the summer and play some reverse sweeps with Nigel Hendersen.

Elsewhere I found A Bisht drawing some cricket cartoons. Sorry for the delay fellow Bored Member!

Many of these new additions may be old for my readers, while some of them may find this to be a rather belated action by myself, but its always better late than never.

If I have missed any of you out, please notify me so that I can add you on to the roll on the right.

And if I have placed you in the wrong category then correct me.

Welcome to this ever growing blogging community.

    It's just the way we speak down here, eh.

    Excellent blogroll. I've have to take the time to explore it.

    Pity you haven't found any West Indian blogs though.

    "It's just the way we speak down here, eh."

    Can't say I don't like the accent Ben. Only don't when Danny Morrison gets behing the mike.

    I don't think there are many wh write on West Indies cricket.

    TCWJ used to and still pops an article here and there in between, but if u come across one dedicated to the Windies, let me know.

  7. Q said...

    Will check those out Moses.

    And Beer & Sport has been on my roll for quite some time ;-)
