Cricket sucks unless it's in the park with your mates and only takes an hour or so.

No sport should take more than a few hours per game. Some of the one day or limited overs games aren't too bad' date=' but otherwise :sleeping:[/quote']

that says more about you, and your levels of concentration, than anything.

horses for courses though.

me, I hated cricket when I was a nipper, my grandad always watched it in the summer hols, and we wanted to watch "Why don't you..." or something...

but now, because I undestand the rules, I love it...

it's a better sport than football...cos you have to think.

and, as you see from the TV, you can still dress up like a moron, and get pissed, but still have fun. everyone wins.

That's quite true with me aswell, although as I said I don't love it. But I stopped really hating it once I realised what was actually going on. It seems to be the case for many sports that people right it off before understanding it.

It's really not hard, y'know...

Explanation of how to play Cricket

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in.

Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes

in and the next man goes in until he's out.

When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been

in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out.

Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and

when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in.

There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they

decide when the men who are in are out.

When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have

been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not

out, that is the end of the game.
