Alright, while attempting to play Cricket 07 on my computer, I realized, it is the most completely stupid sports I have ever come across.

Can anybody enlighten me as to the appeal.

It is quite a specialised thing to like.. I love it. but i love playing it more than on a poxy game.. get out there and play it, before you make judgement.. you need to master technique more so than some sports so be patient if u do want to get into it.

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

blasphemy!!

cricket 07 is a jokeeee. even on teh highest difficulty level its **** easy to hit at least 20 runs an over.

ive played/watched cricket ever since i was 4 years old and i love it with a passion., many people run into the "cricket is boring" rant, when in actual fact i find baseball the most tedious sport. The pitcher gets punished for hitting the batsman, where as in cricket they are allowed to, and in the past often aimed to hit the batsman. 20/20 is probably gonna invigorate teh game. But im watching the NZ vs WI test at teh moment and i dare say i do enjoy the 5 day game

i just wish we would get gayle out already !!!

It's just so damned confusing.



It's really not.

Bowl, hit, run.

That's it in a nutshell.


It's only confusing when you start talking about positions, but that's confusing in every sport when you first start watching/playing.

Whats confusing you?



Everything, How can baseball possibly make less sense, you hit it and you run.
Cricket as far as I can see is throwing a ball at a wooden stick.

Isn't that like baseball then? Throw ball, hit with bat, run?

cricket was invented centuries before baseball came into play

I detected no running.
I mean the three wooden sticks behind the guy with the bat.

Those are the stumps, the batsman has to protect them - if you will - from the bowler by hitting the ball away. If they're hi,t then he's out. That always seemed so simple.

in my opinion, nascar has no appeal, except the stupid commentators.


but i love cricket

Got to agree with you there, my uncle went to a NASCAR race and said it was basically an excuse for people to be publicly drunk and stupid for a weekend. And it's a bunch of cars going in circles, what the eff.

It's quite strategic, with all of the different spins and positionings.

I like it - though I get bored of it after a while.

Americans + cricket =

Oh boy.

Anyway cricket PC games tend to be awful.

I remember trying to tell a couple of girls the rules of cricket:

'OK, so the two batsmen out there have to get as many runs as possible without getting themselves out.'
'But there's like, 2 guys against 11, isn't that like, a bit unfair?'

The only people that like Nascar are the people that watch it/participate.

Most people HATE Nascar, myself included.

It's unique in the sense that I don't watch, or participate in baseball, but I love the sport. If I ever do find myself watching it, it's wonderful. The same can not be said for nascar.

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

There is no appeal. It's a boring, stupidly long, overly complicated game of nothing.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.
