    Thought I could watch the Scunthorpe match on SS1 next week but there's some shitty cricket match. England vs Pakistan who seemed to have been playing each other for ever.

    Cricket for me, is one of the worst sports I've ever seen, they play over days, and play the same team too often, and it's just boring. Neutral

    Cricket shouldn't be a tv sport, should be for people who go to the matches, because I don't see how they could get any fun out of it.

    I have every channel on SKY, and I think if you took Cricket out you could put much more football on there, because sometimes there just isn't enough channels.

    Cricket in HD, what a waste of time.

    But others will see if differently.

    It's an awful sport, boring to watch and play, especially when you happen to be a fielder, you just stand there for hours and the ball may never come to you.

    I have NEVER watched a single game of cricket. The most I have seen of the sport is highlights on Sky Sports News. From the highlights, the game seems really boring which begs to question, "who much more boring is it when watching the full match"?

    I don't even understand the rules of the game or even the point of it, so I guess it's not fair to judge it yet. I should give it one chance.

    Even when you're playing it it's fairly boring...........

    It has to be Twenty20.......anything longer is boring.

    I like it, played it for 10 years until injury got the better of me. If you're not brought up surrounded by cricket, chances are you'll hate it. I love everything about it. The pressure of walking out onto the pitch to bat. The pressure of bowling consistancy and putting pressure on the batsman. Fielding is the funnest part. Sliding around, taking catches. When you're under a high ball and your team really needs a wicket, that's when you need your metal.

    I agree. My family originates from the subcontinent, so they grew up watching cricket. I don't follow it very often and they never show it in the US. Sad

    I kinda feel the same way but with baseball, interesting. Laughing

    But yeah, cricket is pretty poor. 20/20 is not too bad but tests are boring.

    I watched it for about 5 minutes when i was incredibly bored one day, about as entertaining as watching paint dry.

    I hate it when they start talking about cricket on SSN, thats when i usually turn over.

    Shit to watch, shit to play but good to attend for a bender.

    I've been to two games at Lords and I completely forgot there was a game going on both times. Neutral

    and in Australia it's also a good time to get a tan Wink

    20/20 cricket is for all those non-tradionalists who think test cricket is boring.
    For me, an Ashes test is WAY more exciting than a 20/20 match.
