I find cricket really boring.
But my youngest son loves playing it - I must admit that playing IS more fun than watching, especially of you are good at it, which I never was. I mean, that ball is damn hard and it goes really fast! If you can't hit the ball (which I never could) it will hit you and hurt bad. If you can't catch it (which I never could) it will also hit you hard and hurt bad. My favourite position when playing cricket? A long way out on the batter's right, i.e. the place where the ball never goes.
But anyway, as I was saying. My youngest likes playing cricket and is pretty good at it. He actually joined the school team recently and now this week he has 2 matches against other schools. He is really looking forward to it, shame I can't get there to watch. Maybe next time.
Hm, wonder if we should get some cricket stuff for when we go camping? That might be really good fun! Unless Custard eats the ball, of course...
