About “Outside Cricket”

Welcome to Outside Cricket. Initially a working title to reflect the events of 9 February 2014, it evolved into “Being Outside Cricket” in no time. It is a joint effort by a small collection of cricket lovers with a passion for the game and putting their point across. The main authors are Lord Canis Lupus (also known as Dmitri Old),  The Leg Glance (or Chris), Sean and Danny, although Maxie has been known to chip in sometimes, and we keep working on him for more.

Of the team, you may remember Lord Canis Lupus/Dmitri Old from his previous incarnation with his How Did We Lose in Adelaide blog, that went viral, and first brought us all together.  If you want to go and visit that, and you should, since it got a mention in the 2015 Wisden, it’s now available at:

Since we launched in 2015, we’ve grown a fair bit.  First up was the arrival of TLG, formerly known as Vian on the Telegraph cricket comments pages, and now almost entirely here, given that work is too much, and life is too short to do anything more.

Then we had Sean, who first wrote a couple of guest posts, and then was invited on to the team one evening when the other two had had a few drinks.  Fortunately, it turned out to be a good decision.

Danny is the most recent full time contributor, bringing a different eye to subjects the rest of us have been remiss on.

 

Our Twitter handle for the site is @OutsideCricket . Our personal Twitter handles are @blueearthmngmnt  @DmitriOld @seanbcricket and @dannycricket

We don’t run formal policies, and the editorial judgement is for us. We mod incredibly rarely, and only when things are getting truly out of hand, or there may be a sensitive issue we need to think about. No real rules, although I’d rather all political and religious stuff was kept to a minimum. This is a cricket blog.

All comments welcome, including ones contrary to the authors. There’s a tendency for things to become like an echo chamber.

If you want to write a guest post, we’d be more than happy to consider it.  Pop over to the Contact Us page to get in touch.

    Interesting and fascinating site. Modern take on the game to entice new fans. New blogger to the cricket scene. Would you consider one of my articles as a guest post?
