Tour articles[edit]

Earlier on, I updated Wikipedia:WikiProject Cricket/summary of international tour articles as I was doing some offsite work on tours and I'll leave the list for anyone who wants to take it further. Bye now. HCCC14 (talk) 10:26, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Lists of county players[edit]

Forgive me if this has been discussed before, but today I noticed a discrepancy in the way some of our English county cricket articles are titled. For example, we have Yorkshire County Cricket Club but List of Yorkshire CCC players. There are many dozen such CCC list articles. In football, we have Ipswich Town F.C. and List of Ipswich Town F.C. players, for example. Is there a good reason why we abbreviate the title of County Cricket Club to CCC for these lists other than simply to shorten the title? If not, would the project members be amenable to a mass move from "...CCC..." to "County Cricket Club"? Cheers all. The Rambling Man (talk) 14:05, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

I think just to shorten the title. No problem at all with moving them all to the full title. Harrias talk 15:48, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Proposed New Article - Australian Cricket (Rebel) Tour of North America in 1913 -[edit]

Gentles, perhaps you might advise me in what might be a wiki Maiden Over !

I am considering drafting a new Article related to the 1913 "Rebel Tour" by the Australian Team of North American cities.

Any suggestions welcome - especially relating to best-practice content and format ?

That Team's Captain was Austin Diamond, who as well as playing NSW Sheffield Shield (and Club) Cricket, was also a Baseball player.

Among various anecdotes, I read that the Team visited a famous Baseball Stadium, and while the Baseball players had great difficulty dealing with balls delivered by Australian bowlers, perhaps not surprisingly Diamond could hit an American Pitcher's.

As an example of this, have a look at -

if you are interested in both Baseball and Cricket from an Australian's perspective in 1913. (talk) 22:37, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Homeworkgate is at AfD[edit]

I'd welcome some cricket experts' perspectives. --Dweller (talk) 10:07, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Internal template or external stats-scraper?[edit]

Hello WikiProject Cricket people.
Prompted by the Stars' T20 three-peat, I'm gnome-ing away with a view to create List of Australia women ODI cricketers modeled on List of England women ODI cricketers. I've written a few articles to this end, but I'm terrible at adding {{Infobox cricketer}}-s. Is there an internal template or external app that can scape Cricinfo stats up for this?

Not that I know of. Sorry. Johnlp (talk) 14:48, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Player of the Match[edit]

Hi all. Does anyone know of an article or source on the history of Test MotM awards? I need a citation for Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of international cricket five-wicket hauls by Fred Trueman/archive1. S.G.(GH) ping! 13:45, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure that the idea for Test MotM awards was inspired by the awards in ODIs (of which the first was in 1971), and that there weren't any MotM awards when Trueman was playing Test cricket. JH (talk page) 17:14, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
...and I think ODI awards were themselves inspired by the MotMs in Gillette Cup matches from 1963. Johnlp (talk) 22:59, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
I think it should go through FLC now, and I'm planning to put List of international cricket five-wicket hauls by Daniel Vettori up next. S.G.(GH) ping! 15:04, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Flag usage on sports articles[edit]

A discussion has begun to outline usage of flags on sports articles and to review their usage. Sports articles have long diverged from what is stated in the manual of style. Please comment on the proposals and add suggestions by contributing at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Icons. Thanks. SFB 13:59, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
