Re: Cricket World Cup 2015

Like I previousely stated.



Australia blew New Zealand away in the final.

Best captain.

Best batsmen.

Best bowlers.

Bit of a anti climax for some but not me.



New Zealand beat Australia 1 time in the world cup and they are the master team in a weak pool?

True. Usualy New Zealand players play very well under pressure.

Re: Cricket World Cup 2015

It's a shame that I really don't know more about the sport of cricket. Despite the similar names, association and American football are completely different sports requiring different skill sets. (No wonder fans growing up watching one sport think the other is unwatchable!) This isn't true for cricket and baseball. In both sports, a player throws a ball towards a player on the other team, and must throw the ball in a position where the other player has the chance to hit it. The other player uses a wicket or bat to try to hit the ball in play or (better yet) OUT of play to score runs. If the ball is in play but not a home run (that term is used in both sports, I believe), the other team has to run down, field, and throw the ball back to stop or limit the number of scoring that takes place.

I'm not saying that baseball fans should "see the light", abandon their sport, and play cricket instead---or vice versa for that matter. But if you're a baseball fan, you should be able to appreciate cricket.

With that in mind, congratulations to Australia for winning the world championship. I'm sure this victory will cheer all Aussie's hearts the rest of the fall and winter Down Under.

Re: Cricket World Cup 2015

The Rules of cricket are so easy- here goes:

(as explained to a foreign visitor)

You have 2 sides, one out and one in.
Each man that is 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 both sides have been in and out
including the not outs
That's the end of the game!

Klar oder? It must be correct because it is written on my tea-towel.

I thought I understood cricket until eddiejc1 explained it to me.

Re: Cricket World Cup 2015

The world cup has ended yet the pain lingers on. I think England are trying a new strategy: lose early wickets to take the shine off the ball
