It can be simplified to:

- One team hits the ball while the other throws or catches it
- The team with the bats try and run back and forth as much as possible without letting the other team catch the ball on the full/knock over the wicket.
- After one team gets all out the roles swap and the process repeats itself


At least that is how I watch cricket. I also watch it by leaving the room for the majority of the match and coming back to it every now and then to see how the numbers have changed. It goes much quicker that way because you're actually doing something you want to do.

Maybe I'm stupid when it comes to sports in general, but even that explanation, est, went waaaaay over my head.

Honestly this is the best way to watch cricket, particularly in a Test Match (5 days, unlimited overs, very sloooow pace).

Hey also, cos I came across it in a Wiki-ramble last week:

Quote from: Wikipedia article on the "v" sign
During the 1972 Winter Olympics in Sapporo, figure skater Janet Lynn stumbled into Japanese pop culture when she fell during a free-skate periodóbut continued to smile even as she sat on the ice. Though she placed only third in the actual competition, her cheerful diligence and indefatigability resonated with many Japanese viewers, making her an overnight celebrity in Japan. Afterwards, Lynn (a peace activist) was repeatedly seen flashing the V sign in the Japanese media. Though the V sign was known of in Japan prior to Lynn's use of it there (from the post-WWII Allied occupation of Japan), she is credited by some Japanese for having popularized its use in amateur photographs.[23] According to the other theory (actually present in the Japanese version of this entry), the V sign was popularized by the actor and singer Jun Inoue, who showed it in the Conica photo camera commercial in 1972.

No, this is how you watch cricket the real way:

- Step 1, get a job where you work from home (optional).
- Step 2, set up your computer in front of the T.V.
- Step 3, turn the T.V. on, but with the sound turned all the way down.
- Step 4, tune into the commentary on the radio.

You'll find that the radio is slightly ahead of the T.V., so on those rare occasions when something exciting happens you'll hear it happen on the radio first, and then you can look up just in time to see it happen on the T.V.

I do that with nationally televised baseball games. The guys who do most nationally televised games drive me slightly more nuts than the guy who does the radio broadcasts for the Red Sox. It makes for a good time when I'm in a chat with others watching the game and yelling "SPOILER ALERT!"

This is also how I watch cricket, only usually it is on and someone else is watching it, or maybe no-one is sitting there "watching" it.  It is just on, and people walk through the room occasionally and look at the numbers in one corner of the screen.  Sometimes they don't constantly show the numbers so I'll loiter about to see what is up, but then once I know what the numbers are I'll go do something else.

Tommy.

I do not care about sports but I love you. In a very tremendous way.

Good work.

Inlander has the right idea.  I mean, I don't know what the hell cricket is, but the same idea can be used for baseball, especially when you have Bob Uecker on the mic everyday.

Inlander has the right idea. Few things beat the pleasure of getting incredibly stoned, having some beer and watching a 5 day test match.

Also, Obama's throwing action is pretty awful  :-(

Yeah, that made me cringe real hard. Although to be a bit fair to li'l John, the dude is pretty damn old. Having said that my grandfather's 84 and can bowl a lot better then John.
