Cricket or Baseball ???.....Which is more fun !!!!!!!!


hmmm...Well i have been to a cricket match as well as a baseball match. Still find cricket matches more fun and lively than baesball matches. Though cricket grounds are very big and tough to get those first row tickets, the people around and the sound and the mexican waves and the bottle bangings....they r just sooo good.....Dint find all tht much in baseball matches. Atleast we get those kinda passes for cricket matches so v can sit in the pavillion or special boxes but for baseball matches the tickets are so expensive that you cannot afford to sit in the first few rows at all. But in baseball matches, they give loadsa freebies to people. That was really fun and nice when they throw the shirts or any stuff by shooting it with a gun . Very funny !!!!....

The relation between cricket and baseball goes back to the 17th century. The English who migrated to the United States brought along the earliest form of cricket called ‘rounders’. ‘Rounders’ was played in the cricket mould, with a pair of stumps and two bases. The bowler used to bowl under arm and the batsman used cricket bats to protect their stumps. However, with the advent of time, more Americans took to the game and it was changed to suit the increasing participation. This is how Baseball originated in its earliest form.

Who earns the most?? ....Well a tough argument i guess ..!!!!....But Baseball players really earn a lot in millions...esp the big players like Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter. Its just not the Americans only but they also have players esp. from Japan who are hired on contract basis like Matsui, Matsuzaka, Ichiro.....

Atleast something in common.....bat... ball ...hit... run ...out........

Of course cricket.. no doubts about it. Maybe because it's part of our DNA.. It's like a life blood of our nation and so finds a special place in our heart ;)
