This might seem like a bit of a biased and illogical arguement but just an observation. I have been playing cricket for all my life now. I learnt how to play baseball a while ago aroun 6 years ago and have watched baseball occassionally. Frankly if any American calls test cricket boring, they have GUTS because baseball is ten times worse (I told you this is a biased opinion). Baseball is just a weird form of cricket and rounders combined. Quite frankly I do not know what the Americans see in baseball. It is too one-dimensional a sport and has absolutely no strategy as compared to cricket. The beauty of cricket lies in the strategy and the battle and face it - no sport can be discussed for so long and in as many details and aspects of it than cricket (As you all know!!)
My point being is it really fair?
MLB (Major League Baseball) players get more than 20 times the amount international cricketers get.
Cricket is probably twice as popular in terms of fan following yet Baseball & Softball are Olympic sports??
Wherever I go in the world, everyone has heard of baseball but in many countries cricket is unheard of amongst the locals??
Any comments people.
