Cricket is simply a game which requires more skill..
Test cricket is the only sport in the world with real class..
I dont know..its a different kind of skill..pitchers have to throw the ball from 90 ft (???) into an imaginary area about the size of an average TV screen,and not use the ground to extract any movement from,and also not use intimidation as a weapon either (in that the ball must not be thrown at the batter)..pretty tough if you ask me.
I agree though about the game of baseball...I grew up in a time when the following of American sports were de rigueur
(hope I have used that one correctly!!!!) ..American football has stayed with me, and is still a passion of mine..baseball really just didnt interest me
