Definitely cheating. Cricket is not popular on N4G especially considering most users are from the US.

Greatest game of all.

If youve never watched Cricket, you should educate yourself.

I come from a country that plays cricket...let me tell you this game is lame. Most times you are fielding[lofting] just like baseball. Batting style is better than baseball but I think baseball rotates batting/fielding which is good whereas with cricket you are fielding for like 3 hours which is dumb IMO. Basically if you like baseball you MAY like cricket.

I don't agree with you. This is the only cricket game with realistic fielding and catches. They have tried to bring more and more realism in the game and I also think they deserve the best.

Another good job was done by Cricket Revolution by Mindstorm Studios.

I can understand if some people dont "get" cricket.

You might find it boring. A one day match goes for 6 hours.
Test Cricket (the full, proper and still best version) goes for 5 days and often ends in a draw.

The beauty of the game is the display of skills on display. You need mental toughness as well as physical. When you bat, you might be out there for hours and hours. You need to concentrate like a surgeon, every ball. That takes disipline.

When you bowl, you might bowl 100 balls in a day, and they have to be in the zone. Again, it takes incredible concentration.

In baseball youre out after 3 strikes. Youre only there for a couple minutes at a time. And the ball doesnt bounce, it can only swing in the air, so theres no chance of moving off the pitch. A cricket ball can move side to side, or bounce sharply, or stay down with little bounce. The batter has a fraction of a second to react to this.

In cricket they catch the ball with their hands, not with huge gloves. Wheres the skill in that? When fielding, you could be in the field all day, yet you must be sharp, every ball. You never know when a ball going 100mph will streak past your nose.

Cricket is as much a test of charactor as skill, and thats why its the best sport of all.

Cricket is also extremely tactical. Alot can happen over 5 days, or even one. Field positions, bowling changes, reading the changing pitch conditions and observing any technical faults in the batters technique are crucial. A 5 day game can turn on its head in a matter of minutes. A Captain really needs to think on his toes.

And not to be insulting, I'm not knocking baseball, or those who like it, but comparing baseball to cricket is like comparing checkers to chess.
