Cricket game

Recommended Posts

This game reminds me as a cross between Croquet & Baseball. Has wickets at each end where athletes use a bat that is flattened to hit the ball. It can be traced back to the 16th century in England.

I’m not athletic though I do pay some attention to sports. However, this game was one I couldn’t get into. Maybe because I’m in the USA & it doesn’t seem to be as common here.

Who plays Cricket? Do you do it for fun or been on a league?

I've never played and given my location might never.   However, as with Rugby, it would be cool to play some video game version.  In that case, I could explore it.

I don't know the game called Croquet, but I can see resemblance with baseball. I don't play cricket but I like watching this game. There are at least 5 different formats of this game.

Cricket might be one of the world most popular game, but it isn't the type I love. Played it too when I was in the university, which is six against six, with five reserve players apiece.

Some cricket matches are played all day long for 5 consecutive days, and some match can be finished in 3-4 hours. One of the reasons why cricket has failed to impress a lot of people is because of long format.

I can't sit for that long watching a single match or sports games, unless it a wrestling competition where you have several fighters compete against each other, asides this I would get tired watching it.
