Only the test form of cricket (5-day match) is that boring...

The one-dayers (day-nighters) actually are quite interesting to watch because the pace of the game is much faster and you get more reckless batting.
Test Match cricket is far better than One Day crciket. I enjoy both.

Cricket is two forms:

1) Test Matches - all the players wear white and they play for 5 days maxiumum, (match length depends on the quality of the teams).
The team that bats first has to score as many runs as they can, and if they get enough and bowl well, they can beat the other team without batting twice (while the other team bats twice) - i.e. the team that bats first has to get more than the other team gets in two innings (innings = batting session)

2) One dayers - these are played in two ways, as "dayers" or "day-nighters".. dayers are simply played during the day and both team bats and bowls just once.. day-nighters are the same but are started later in the day and are played into the evening, finishing around 10pm-ish.

gee... Cricket is really hard to explain.. maybe if your bored you can visit cricket.org, that'll explain the basics of the sport better than i can.

I never could understand what Cricket is about
I guess I'll have to go back to school and have a course on Cricket

BTW I think gardening is more interesting than cricket....Maybe Bobo should retire and start planting flowers

One day Cricket is great fun to watch, but I find the Tests to be really boring since we (Australia) seem to win in three days all the time.

And Cricket at Adelaide Oval is very, very cool.

Wow, there's a few Australians in this forum

There's a couple over at Juventuz too, but i've only been here for 20 minutes and it's pleasant to see a few Aussies watching the right type of football (not so sure about the team though :P)

One day matches are pretty fun to watch, but test matches are so damn boring, because the batsmen just wait for perfect balls, and nothing else

Thanks for the link. I didn't know that site existed .

I'd also recommend ABC of Cricket, whom I think explains this sport quite well for beginners.

So... any other Shane Warne mistresses came out lately?
