Default Anyone for Cricket? Nows your chance.

The cricket World cup is currently taking place in blighty. Each side has 50 overs (six balls in each over) to outscore the other. If you can stomach the five mins highlights of each game on the 'tube, you might find some enjoyment in our summer sport. A 'home run' is worth six, the 'at bat' can be caught as in Baseball, and if the 'pitcher' or bowler beats the bat and hits the stumps he's out, LBW is if the 'at bat' misses the ball with his bat and it hits his pads and was going to hit the stumps anyway he's out, and if either the batsman is attempting a run and doesn't reach the batting line and a fielder throws the ball and hits the stumps before he gets there, he's out as well. The basic rules.

We've barely warmed up to the whole brooms and ice in Curling that is on tv once every four years... Cricket is probably still decades away from capturing our attention.

I see our cherished game has failed to make it over the Atlantic. Just give it a bash chaps, the games are only five mins of yer time, I have to plough through over 10 mins of your NFL/Baseball 'lights. Mind you, I like a spot of NFL in the cold winter months.

I'd love to watch a good game of Rugby but alas it is not an easy task on this side of the pond.

Now here is a sport that will slap the boredom right out, quite literally. Seems to be gaining steam over in Russia.... https://youtu.be/NTng7F_fRbA

It's a bit like the NFL without helmets and armour. The Internationals can get a bit frisky.

I enjoy cricket but it’s hard to catch much live here. I had a buddy of mine from India teach me about cricket so I got the hang of four and six and hitting the century mark. In return I taught him golf! He wanted to learn the game and I got to learn about fast bowlers and spinners! Good times!

Watching it every night, lost lots of sleep- we had a tight win over the Bangers this morning! Heart in mouth stuff for a while there. Bangladesh will tip over a few sides, I was very impressed by their spinners- very talented.
