What exactly is cricket's 'white ball' game?

Red ball, used for 3 day and 5 day traditional matches i.e. county games and test matches played in daylight. White ball used for day/evening 20 over/50 over one day matches. I think!

White ball cricket is generally the one-day game - but don't ask me about the pink ball Tom.

Absolutely great win. On to the next one which should be on to savour. Hopefully plenty of fans will salivate enough at the thought of the away clash to Crewe to see us travel in big numbers to support the lads.

What a refreshing interview by Harry Kewell, no berating of the officials, no criticism of the playing conditions, no blaming his players for the defeat, just an honest assessment that his team was beaten fairly and squarely by a better side. This interview should be shown to all Football League managers who moan and groan when their teams lose.

Pink ball is day/night, longer form.

I know who it was ChrisG, it's the conversation that's a bit of a blur!

We all have our favourite players and I've wanted to say hello to mine and get his autograph for the past six months.
So you can imagine how I felt when we turned the corner and almost bumped right into him!

Like I said, starstruck by our star player.

I didn't even see the player behind him!

Sorry Ossie.

They were wrong.

It was easy!
:D


I going to sound stupid here but it was because of the goals. Crawley were giving as good as they got for quite a while but we took our early chances and that knocked the stuffing out of them. As TimB and I and others have said over several months, it’s fine margins between success and failure.

Crewe is another important one. A must not lose.


We had exactly the same amount of chances on and off target and conceded a lot more corners so to say it was easy is simplistic and disrespectful to both teams imo, we worked hard for it and they had their chances, we took ours and they didn't, that was the difference.


Exactly. There have been plenty of games this season when the reverse has been true

Hmm not sure of that, until new year there weren't many games I felt we were unlucky to lose and looking at the stats it was lucky that doidge was so prolific with the chances he got or we could be well down there, I remember plenty of games where we struggled to get any shots on target.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
