    Everybody played cricket a few times a year in PE. It was the only thing in PE I liked because I was actually good at it.

    Cricket is dull. Americans: it`s essentially baseball, but you have to hit the wicket behind the batter (and you hold the bat in a funny way), and instead of running in a diamond, you just run back and forth in a line between bowler and batter. Dull.

    @Mister_C: don`t forget that most americans find baseball boring and the games last 2 1/2 - 3 hours standard, while Cricket games (known as tests) can last for days

    Cricket is the second most popular sport in the world and has two to three billion fans according to some sources. I guess not everybody thinks it`s boring or confusing.

    Baseball is cricket for retards who couldn`t understand the concept of bowling instead of throwing the ball.

    "It`s british and that is all the evidence I need to know it sucks."

    By which logic, Baseball must also suck as it too is British

    I just don`t care about sports in general. `cept perhaps Pro-Bending, but, well, unfortunately I live in reality where there aren`t any games dedicated to spewing fire at your opponents. (And if there are, please feel free to enlighten me.)

    This prompted me to watch a video about the basics of cricket. Honestly? I thought it would be more interesting what with how hugely popular it is around the world, but it looks...well, kind of dumb. I`m sorry! If it makes you feel better, I don`t like baseball either, it`s dull as hell, but I now find it more interesting than cricket.

    Cricket is amazing. The way a five day test can come down to the final few overs. The strategy, field placements. Watching a batsman spend two days at the crease while he is pummelled by fast bowlers just to draw the match. Seeing a fast bowler shatter the stumps or a spinner completely bamboozle the batsman. It`s something you get or you don`t though and it takes a lot of watching to see what is really going on.

    I understand most of those words. Just not in the order you`re using them.

    I tend to view cricket in the same light as fishing:
    Get comfortable, open beer and picnic, relax, chill and de-stress. Who cares who wins? who cares if you catch a fish? Just watch the game/float. Applaud when something happens. Listen to the birds singing. Think deep thoughts. Share another beer and a chat with your fellow relaxees.
