Okay.

In all honesty, both are incredibly boring to watch. Only a die-hard fan can appreciate the game on TV. Even in stadiums, live, they're boring, but the crowd atmosphere negates that.

I've played baseball, and I play cricket to this day. I know for a fact that cricket has a much, much larger following than baseball at any rate. Whilst the game has really only been adopted in the Commonwealth states and previously-occupied British territories like Canada, India and what's now known as Pakistan. Yet its following is tremendous - ranging well into the 1 billion mark for sure.

I can't prove that, but I know the subcontinent is pretty much cricket-crazy. And that represents roughly 2 billion people.

To my knowledge, baseball has only been adopted in Japan, Korea and America. Not impressive compared to cricket's following.

Aside from comparing the followings of the two sports, the sport themselves. Baseball does seem to have a very sloggish attitude - just hit and run. Not an intelligent or physically demanding sport to a great extent.

Cricket is more strategic, especially the 5-day format of Test Cricket. You have to endure at the crease (batting point), and you have to have a strong mental aptitude to succeed. Bowlers have to constantly find a right pitch, spin and length, so it's as hard on them to bowl out a batter as it is for the batter to hit a great shot and score runs.

Cricket is by far a much more technical and strategic sport than baseball, and more physically and mentally demanding. Which is why you'll see virtually zero cricketers are overweight compared to baseball's giants. No pun intended.

Done'd.

Argumentum ad populum. Because all these people like it, it must be good. Because all these people think this, then it must be right.

Also, you don't seem to know much about baseball. It's cerebral--it's entirely strategy. Which makes it ridiculously boring.

Nice to see you're putting on a similar show of intelligence and coherence here...

If so many people like it, there's a reason why.

I'd like to hear these "strategies" in baseball. On the surface it just looks like a lot of big men hitting a ball blindly and running. But you could use that against cricket too I suppose...
