    Icon12 Kilikiti (Samoan Cricket)

    My friend, who is a Samoan in Aotearoa (New Zealand), told me that there is Samoan Cricket called Kilikiti.
    My knowledge of Kilikiti is very limited; but there are 2 Wicket-Keepers on the both ends of the pitch. So my idea of 2 Wicket-Keepers is not ridiculous.
    Are there such reformed versions of Crickets in other countries?

    Americans have this awful convoluted version of Cricket. I think they call it Baseball? Not sure. Awful sport tho.

    There was a programme I saw about a year ago called [i]Last Man Standing[/i] which was about getting athletes from various disciplines playing local sports in LDCs. In one of the episodes they play island cricket - quite interesting. I'll see if it's on the net anywhere.

    I think the cricket they played was in Papua New Guinea - Trobriand Cricket. 50 or 60 players per side.

    Yes, it is.

    The origin of American Baseball is not Cricket; it's Rounders. Rounders has 2 codes--English and Irish. I do not know which one was the origin of American Baseball. I have never seen a Rounders game, either English or Irish.
