I'm Canadian, and I know how to play cricket. I'm pretty good to!

Might have something to do with the fact I live in Australia though.

I'm American, and I think cricket is fascinating. I've got the gameplay down, but the scoring still eludes me. Sometimes at night on campus there's a team of Indian guys who play it. I like to go watch.
Can't stop the signal.

Nah, cricket doesnt have much of a following here at all

One of my friends said to the principle once,

The principle eventually caught up to him and gave him a drug test.

scoring's pretty easy. running from wicket to wicket is one run (one point), over the boundary (usually a rope on the ground, or at a small oval the fence) is four runs, and over the boundary on the full is 6 runs.

I was invited to watch a cricket match with a British friend once. He very patiently explained the rules to me. When I found out that a match could easily last 2 days or more I opted for a root canal.

The only Canadians who I've ever seen play cricket were either born in Pakistan or where on a TV show and were trying to impress a British doctor who was moving into town.

I'm Canadian and I know how to play cricket, though I don't really play it much - too busy wth hockey and whatnot. Don't know anybody else that does.

I've played it a few times and I enjoyed it. Would I watch it? No, but that's how I am with most sports.

thats the crappy test cricket version, and for the record that lasts up to a maximum of 5 days. what you want are the 50 overs games or probably 2020. The indian premier league on at the moment would be a good demonstration of that, i'll try and find a youtube link or something

5 days is a test match
