it's pretty ironic that your icon says liverpool
cricket isn't that confusing, the only thing that makes it confusing is all the stupid ass words they use for the positions and batters and runs and stuff. I still don't know half the rules yet though, theres way too many
frosted flakes are necessary
More like, baseball is similar to cricket, with half the size of the field... 4 times as many wicket zones or whatever the fuck you want to call them, almost as many players, way shorter games, more racous fans (i've watched a good bit of it on espn360 to try to understand it and it's basically like tennis), you actually know who won after the game is over, Oh, and when we hit a home run... shit hit's the fan.
Basically I hate on cricket the same way as other people hate on US football... Baseball is way more badass. You dont dress up like a hockey goalie to bat... you take it like a man and fuckin kill it.
oh, and in baseball, you dont run up and throw the ball like a monkey to pitch, or 'BOWL' as cricketeers call it.
I know I'm hating hardcore, but one last thing - cricket is a retarded name for a sport.
