i played cricket all the way through school, was dependable with the bat and could bowl a fast ball which cricket coaches would encourage, but as touch rugby grew in popularity in NZ and my natural love for rugby, i commited more to touch rugby and cricket became nothing more then a memory, i honestly think that if my close friends never played cricket, i never would have bothered trying it out in the first place.
i had a similar attitude towards cricket on TV, i thought it was so borrrrrrrring and couldnt understand why playing it and watching were so different, as one i didnt mind, while the other made me want to bash my head in.
even now with the SA vs OZ test in brisbane, this is what i have gathered from the news, they played a 5 day test series, one day was completly washed out leaving them with 4 days of play and the final result was a freaking DRAW??? o_O
and then the commentators try to spin it like it was such a good series, o_O
each to their own, but IMO, theres nothing good about watching something like cricket for four days only for no one to win the game.
