I havent heard anything to be honest i was actually talking to a friend about this and it dosent look good. I thought that at least EA would bring out an update of their cricket game.

Id have thought that there would be a rugby game by now as well, but no signs of that, although they released it for the original xbox :(

Cricket is not similar to baseball. The only things that are similar is that you have a bat and a ball. Baseball is basically rounders with silly gloves.

Lol, yeah, they're not really alike at all. I used to watch baseball late at night on channel 5, it was great. Can get a bit boring at times of course, I guess for you Americans it's more of a day out thing?

Anyways, cricket (by the sounds of it many will disagree) is terribly boring. It gets thrown, then hit, then they try and run back and forth a lot. There's really nothing at all to it, not in terms of skill and techniques of course, just in terms of actual things happening to keep a viewer entertained.

I should point out I'm bias because I don't really like any sport, minus motor sports.

If your not into it then a 5 day test match can seem boring- but thats because its down to a battle of the minds.

If you ever get the chance to see 20-20 cricket, that is a great laugh and itsmore exciting as the play is more aggresive.

Theres no padding in tennis, so its probably a more macho game

The great "American" sport of baseball is an English game called rounders. Deal with it.

Its people being this ignorant to the UK that gets ignored on this site, but when its in reverse everyone takes offense.

1. Your in a post for the UK- the place that founded USA.
2. Dont even start about crime levels- especially gun crime. Think yours is around 9000 times higher than ours
3. This is spam- and offensive spam at that. Which you have been warned about
