    That's why he's always talking about baseball.

    Actually, as someone who can actually read a bit of Japanese, I probably should have checked before making that comment.

    Now that I have done so I can confirm that these Japanese "rules" do in fact say what he claims they do. Blimey.

    Hat eating time.

    Just now I contacted the Japan Cricket Association, and they confirmed that the Japanese translation on their website is an old version, and they are now preparing new translation of the current laws.
    Sorry for making confusion.

    It does say an over is 6 (or 8) balls. (Depending on what was agreed upon before the match)

    E: And now I see it has already been pointed out..........

    Lokomotiv, can you please confirm if the famous 4 balls in baseball was correct too or was that an error in a Japanese book too? If correct, do you have any video footage of it?

    Do you mean this batter?

    Yes, I can confirm this is a real one, taken from the High School Baseball national competition this year.
    And I want to see an exhibition Cricket game in which Baseball bats are used.
    And as for balls, I think that the Japan-born gum-ball would be good for amateurs and children, because there would be no necessity for guards .
