Dear Gawd how can anyone get excited about a game that actually is more boring than watching paint dry. :p

Probably enjoyed by the same crowd that sit at the edge of a canal looking at their float bob up and down for hours on end.

Yeah but that's not real fishing. Fly fishing, now there's a proper sport.

I second that. 20/20 bought me back to watching cricket. Also the T20 cup was the first time Cricket was shown here in Poland. Quite an achievement for Cricket. :)

I think you have to be from Yorkshire or somewhere like that to enjoy cricket.

I lived, for a short time, directly opposite the Hampshire county Cricket ground, just a few hundred yards away was the Dell ... not recommended on a weekend and the planners really didn't think it through. Both have moved now, well been re-sited not jumped up and walked off.

Many villages have their own Cricket Greens and it can be a pleasant afternoon sat with a picnic on a summer afternoon

Hello Everyone,

I didn't like cricket so much.. I have to pass one whole day to see the match and in day that's not possible to see it.

Now a days there is 20-20 matches which are too interesting and very exciting.It just takes 3-4 hours and mostly in the night.So i can watch it with a great relax.

So Now I love the game and often watch 20-20. Loving it..

huh ,cricket is the best game ever ,it takes real skill to play the game and the action can arrive at any second and playing for 5 days is awesome but my favourite has to be the 50 overs .Also helps having the best team in the world :ccol: SOUTH AFRICA :ccol:

Err... are you sure SA is the best?
Am not gonna be convinced till I see them play India.
Am talking about the 50 overs format, so will let you know after the Champions Trophy.

I neither like nor am I interested in cricket but one thing puzzles me, how can teams play each other for days on end and still end up in a draw?

Cant they have some sort of cricket equivalent of a penalty shoot out to settle it? Like putting an unpadded wicket keeper in front of the stumps then getting bowlers to try and take out the stumps while the poor keeper has to somehow stop them. I'd watch that! :D

Oh boy.. would I like to watch the Indians and Pakistanis have a go at each other's unpadded WKs :) Specially since the Indian WK is also their captain! LOL.. that'd be fun to say the least.

But I'd like to see you try to sell this idea to the old f@rts at the MCC tho. :)

I think they should increase their prices so that they don't have to resort to paying SEO spammers from Belarus to try and improve their rankings. :)

Shall I ban you now, or would you be wanting to spam elsewhere in the forum?

I am a big fan of cricket. Having said that I can understand why people can find Test cricket boring. I was horrified by England's useless performance in their last Test match again New Zealand, a team quite low down in the world rankings.

We need to make up for this by beating the Aussies this summer. :laugh:
