I am an Indian, but I am not a big fan of cricket.

But I am proud to be an Indian(as the saying goes), and so amposting this. I know of a couple of more guys here who are Indian.

I watched a cricket game on TV today for about 5 minutes, does that count?

Oh, and I watched American Pie which has the 2 dudes playing Cricket (I think?) so maybe combined with the above, that counts?

its not the matter of whether u play or love to play or watch the cricket... it is the matter, how you love the game....... if you really love the game & play it, then it counts....

cheers

As an English lad Football is my game - but cricket officilally germanated in England and has since been exported to several countries including India and Pakistan - If I had one ounce the talent of the great Sachin Tendulkar - then maybe I'd like cricket more - still, respect to those who like cricket - it gets knocked to often.

Look, it doesn't matter whether you are white, black or orange with purple spots, english, indian, pakistani, caribbean or even south african, australian or new zealander

Test cricket is just sooooooooooooooo bloody boring.

BUT,

that's not a total criticism. Because, I can just about manage a 1 day match. Just.

Now I dunno about stonegold84, cos he's in Singapore, but this season, because the ECB/MCC would do anything to get more "bums on seats". Result = the 20/20 competition. The other result has been not being able to get a F*****g ticket, because it's too popular.

In cricket terms - it's just an absolutely brilliant "smashfest". the way that cricket should be played, not all this "poncing around" tamping divot's into the wicket with the bat end or rubbing pinches of dirt into the seem of the ball. The bowler bowls, and the batsman does what he should be doing all the time - he beats 10 bells of s**t out of the ball and run's like buggery.

regards

John

Hey I'm not Indian either but my brother in law Satwant was chucked out of Uganda by Idi Amin - does that count?

Cricket - yeah, love it. Agree with bigjohn as well - 20-20 could be the salvation of the game, let's have more, lots more. Plenty of room for cricket of all types from sit back and bore to slug it out...

One of the best things about the 20-20 tournament was how there were guys from Minor Counties and even Village teams being invited to play for the Counties and slugging the ball with the best of 'em! How cool is that?

Mind you the current test series hasn't exactly been a bore a minute has it - mucho action there indeed. Bring it on!

It is not excatly as like this...... It is correct that he runs for the score.. But it is the matter how he runs & how the fielder chases the ball & throws back to the stumps. If you see all those stuffs, it is really good..

"Cricket is a gentleman game" said by an famous Crickter from australia..... (Though i dun know the name of the crickter who told this)....

Point made. Interesting things about cricket have mostly been said by cricketers - i.e. vested interests!
