Cricket?   
Test Cricket?......

It just shows you do not understand the game.

This is excellent!! I love it. It's great to see people try out something different from what they are used to and enjoy it. Its good to know Guangzhou has a cricket pitch. My son and I enjoyed visiting Guangzhou and would love to do it again. Maybe visit this place and organise a game? My son plays cricket and loves it here in Australia.

As you say it is always good to try something different but sadly I feel cricket will never catch on in China with no media coverage there.

They are talking about trying to split the Barmy Army up at future tests, sad.

I am appalled to hear this, just goes to show, The Australian Cricket Board, are running cricket into the ground. Fluck me, time to hit the emails to stop this crap from happening. Congrats for the second medal

Listen here you POMMY B#S#%@D!
I played when younger, being competent enough bowling but REALLY did not like being hit by hard red cricket balls bowled at high velocity from a distance that seemed all too close whilst batting!
Standing under a BLAZING Sun, waiting for somebody to hit the same hard red cricket ball at me in the middle of an Australian Summer is something i don't particularly enjoy either.
Haven't played since i was a teenager though i do still play Indoor Cricket on the odd occaison.
The ball used in Indoor Cricket is much softer than a real cricket ball.
Test Cricket is the traditional form but can be as boring as all F$#% sometimes. However a close finish after 5 days of play can be one of the most awesome things to experience in the world of sports.
1 day cricket can be exciting and i watch sometimes if there is a day /night match on Television.
I've never watched a 20/20 game although i do see highlights on Sports reports sometimes.
In my family, it is my older sister that is the cricket tragic.
She has been complaining today about the Bloody POMS winning the Ashes after the bad light BULLSH%T!

I understand the game.

BTW I'm an Aussie.


Don't argue with idiots! They will always win. First they drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience!
When the power of love, overtakes the love of power,  the world will have peace.
