thanks for this new thread, Shankar, but sadly i know nothing about cricket, seems an interesting sport, i tried it for a few minutes many years ago during a gathering with friends but i knew that your country is the best for this sports  :)

i hope some other posters know about cricket and can talk with you :)

i think they conduct a tournament in hong kong which is called "the hing kong sixes"........yeah you need some large free space to play the game........however we used to play even on the streets as well when we were kids and couldn't go to the grounds on our own........

Great start to the Cricket Thread General Shankar!  Thanks for starting it.  I have a couple of requests if you don't mind. :)

Since you are very knowledgeable about the sport could you please recommend an excellent youtube video on the basics of playing Cricket for those of us that are unfamiliar to the game?  Maybe you could also find a link or two to some excellent full matches so we can watch once we understand the basics.

If you can find these, I think it would be best if you would put the links to it in your original post so it can be found easier.

Thanks again!

Respectfully,
masterclass

i have no clue about baseball........yeah it looks somewhat similar to cricket but i just don't get the sport........most of the times the hitter misses a lot of deliveries from the thrower, gets frustrated and walks away after 3 consecutive misses........
