This site has people from many different places right. Australia and England for example. So yeah I was just wondering if anyone on KHI is familiar with the 'gentlemen's' sport of cricket?

Somewhat corny vid showing cricket in a nutshell:

It's 'similar' for sure but when you get down to it they're very different.

Cricket has two 'bases'. A 'pitcher' bowls not throws. You aren't allowed to miss three times (if the ball hits your wicket you're out). There aren't 'foul balls' etc. etc. etc.

Interesting fact, in baseball you end up with like 7 runs right? In cricket you end up with about 300 XD

Beach Cricket was pretty good until they stopped televising it.

Anyway, I used to play pretty madly when I could.

I've never played myself, i'm a football guy myself (soccer), but I've seen others play before and i wouldn't get it. that vid you posted made it look pretty intense.

Yep!

Anyone know who Brian Lara is by chance?

The only connection I have with Brian Lara is the cricket game series that my friend from India wanted me to get for him. He is a college foreign exchange student. Apparently cricket is big in India and Europe. We stupid Americans don't appreciate it. But my friend and all the Indians around here travel and play cricket at different schools. Pretty awesome.
