What I enjoy about cricket (and baseball) is that it is so relaxing. Sit back, pop open a good brew and enjoy being out-of-doors. Have a hot-dog (do you have hot-dogs at a cricket match?) or two. While away an afternoon chatting with your neighbors. All this and it is hard to miss the action, as there generally isn't all that much. Not like footsball(s) (of all ilks), or, especially like basketball or hockey, where you blink and you've missed it.

Cricket is here in US, but it is like a . (dot) in comparison to all the other sports.

Then you should play Croquet, and not the back yard stuff. Croquet is like playing chess on a pool table. I have been playing for 20 years in tournaments.

I was first introduced to serious croquet in Zambia by Brits who took the game quite seriously. I was used to back yard beer style stuff, but realized when one of them knocked my ball literally into the Zambezi that this was an entirely different thing.

There is a league that plays at our local park, but I can't get a handle as to what is going on. Is there an instructional video that I can watch? I watch many British shows and there are cricket matches in the shows occasionally and I'd like to be able to understand the game.

Check me as well. The basic premise is to score as many runs as you can. If it is hit by the bat along the floor to the boundary it is four runs. If the batter scores 50 runs it is an achievement and he gets a round of applause. A 100 runs is very special. The fielders are there as in Baseball. They can catch the ball, or throw it to the stumps either end to the wicket keeper or the bowler. If either of the two batters ( one receiving the 'pitcher', the other at the other end) fail to make their ground before either the keeper or the bowler uses the return ball to smash the stumps at either end, he is out. A fast bowler with have a couple or more men alongside the keeper to catch a ball that may be nicked by the edge of the bat when the batsman plays the ball. There are about seven or eight different strokes the batsman can play to score runs dependant where the ball is delivered. It is very difficult to master and time more then two or three strokes if you are an amateur player. There is some movement in the air by the bowlers and movement off the pitch too before it comes to the batsman. A pitcher in BB relies entirely on movement through the air, not so much in cricket. The ball normally swings either away or in to the batsman through the air. A Base Ball pitch is considered a 'full toss' and is normally hit to the boundary for four runs or over the boundary for a 'home run', six runs. There are ten innings to each side. Ten batsmen have to be out in other words. Most of the action happens after the ball strikes the ground in front of the batsman. A fast ball from a pitcher is done six times per over by a fast bowler, who also tries to defeat the batsman's reaction by speed.

More to follow.
