    This Pakistani Cricket Fan Has Some Smooth Dance Moves (Video)

      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 Player Loses Three Teeth When Ball Hits Him In The Face (Video)

    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 […]

    9 Obscure Sports Museums

    In the past seven weeks, the sporting press has spilled a lot of ink (both real ink and, in the case of sports websites like this one, virtual ink) covering the 2011 inductions to both the baseball and football halls of fame. It makes sense, of course, since these are some of the most popular […]

    11 Things Worth Knowing About Cricket

    Here in North American, cricket is a mysterious sport. We recognize that it is a little bit like baseball, but when people talk about it they use all kinds of funny words we don’t understand. Then, if we ever see it on TV—and we rarely do—it’s so confusing because it just looks like a whole […]

    Apparently This Is An Amazing Cricket Catch (Video)

    I am not all that familiar with the game of cricket.  Therefore, I am not quite sure what would constitute “one of the most amazing catches you’ll ever see on a green field,” but apparently it involves making a barehanded overhead catch at the edge of the midwicket boundary and throwing the ball back into […]

    Creepy Cricket Fan Performs Voodoo On Baby (Video)

    Exactly two weeks ago we claimed that the Bangladeshi man with the evil stare was the creepiest cricket fan ever.  Well it appears as though his reign was a short one as we were recently treated to the sight of this freak during the Cricket World Cup, who may not only be the creepiest cricket […]

    The Creepiest Cricket Fan Ever! (Video)

    I always thought that fans performing some stupid act while the camera is one them was more of a Western thing.  I Guess not. This clip comes to us via the 2011 Cricket World Cup in Bangladesh, where a fan of the host country found himself face-to-face with a cameraman from Sky Sports, and made […]

    Actor Hugh Jackman recently had himself a Brett Favre moment when he stepped up to the plate against cricket great, Shane Warne.  I am not entirely sure if jockstraps are mandatory in the game of cricket, or if Jackman felt the need to put one on during this friendly talk show skit, but regardless of […]

    This Cricket Fan Had One Too Many (Video)

    After doing some research, we have learned that some variations of the game of cricket can take up to five days.  We are assuming that this match was one of those long ones, and this heavily intoxicated male was drinking right from the start. This guy was likely attempting to get up for the first […]
