    Us proper English Love this game we also love this game as well of a few in are Commonwealth.

    My daughter went to this match and said it was the start of the English summer and we kicked arse

    The catch at 4.33 is awesome.

    I love cricket. Nothing nicer and more relaxing than sitting watching the local cricket team on the village green on a Sunny Sunday afternoon....

    I understood that baseball developed from a combination of cricket and rounders. It is different from both, but similar in some ways supposedly. American football developed from Rugby. One of my grandfathers was a big rugby player here and in Scotland supposedly.
