    Cricket Player Pranks Teammate, Scares the Hell Out of Him (Video)

    Don’t know anything about cricket? Doesn’t matter. This post is funny even if you can’t tell a bowler from a sticky wicket. You see, during a recent cricket match involving the South African national team, a 21-year-old rookie wicket keeper named Quinton De Kock (seriously, real name) called off 31-year-old veteran bowler Dale Steyn and […]

    Not knowing the first thing about cricket, I’m confident I misused about seven different terms in that headline. I bet they don’t even call seagulls “seagulls” during cricket matches. They’re probably called “Rories” or something. Whatever. It’ll take more than a story of a (presumably) dead bird to make me learn about cricket. So a […]

    Cricket and baseball are a lot alike. They employ very different terminology, of course, but basically both sports have bats, batters, pitchers, infielders, outfielders, outs, home runs, and strikeouts. The fans can be kind of similar, too. Sometimes baseball fans are alert and make amazing catches when the ball comes flying into the stands. Sometimes […]

    Winter is a tough time for hardcore baseball fans. But here’s some good news for all you baseball-loving  folks out there: pitchers and catchers report in just four weeks.

    15 Hot Cricket WAGs

    Yesterday it was brought to my attention that a major cricket competition is going on right now in Sri Lanka: the Twenty20 World Cup. And while I myself am not a cricket fan, I do appreciate the fact that there are close to a billion people who are, and that this makes the Twenty20 World […]

      We already knew cricket and baseball have a lot in common. Both sports have bats, runs, pitchers, outs and, most importantly, home runs. Sure, the terminology differs a bit—in cricket, pitchers are called bowlers and home runs are called sixes—but you get what I’m trying to say. However, it turns out that it’s not […]

    “Oh that’s flush.” That was how the commentators of this cricket match between New Zealand and South Africa described the scene after watching replays of Kane Williamson taking an 86 m.p.h. pitch to the groin.  The impact was so hard that it was enough to break the protective cup (or as they call it in […]

    Bevan Small Gives Us One Of The Greatest Cricket Catches Ever! (Video)

    In August of last year, many credited Sri Lanka’s Angelo Mathews with making one of the greatest cricket catches we will ever see.  Five months later it appears as though he has been outdone by Central Stags twelfth man Bevan Small. During a Twenty20 match in New Zealand last week, Small tracked a ball hit […]

    Cricket and Ice Hockey have more in common than you would have thought. The Zimbabwean and Bangladeshi national cricket teams recently got together for a series of five One-Day International Matches in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. (Why were they playing five one-day matches instead of a single “test cricket” match that lasts five days? I have no […]
