How hard is it to learn to play cricket?

By

I’ve played a little baseball, but never a real cricket game, but I’m thinking of starting a club at my school, do u think this is a good idea?

I played Cricket (in Japan of all places). It is a totally fun game and one that has been played for a very long time.

To get a really great overview go to the following link.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cricket

Plus, I can guarantee that you will get a lot of attention while playing and that is never bad.

Not hard. Just stand in a field and rub your legs together to make a little chirping noise.

Now playing mosquito is a little tougher, to be honest it kind of sucks.

dude, depends on your skills. If you're good at catching, throwing and hitting and running and aiming, you'll learn real quick

I think its better to stop thinking about cricket and concentrate on base ball, so that you can be a good player in atleast that.

If you think that "You can do it" and you can visualize yourself playing cricket then you can certainly do it. If you ever ever think that "you can't do it" then you will tend to make mistakes. That is why you should always be positive and try to get better at every second. If you are a beginner then you will tend to make mistakes but Remember "Where there is a will there is a way."
If you think positive then you can certainly make it.

Cricket rocks. Fantastic game.

It's easy to learn, and as long as you ahve a few kids at your school who are willing to have 6 hours of fun fun fun then it's a go.

Depending on what country you are in will determine how many other schools wil play you. But you'd be surprised how many countries have cricket associations.

We brits like you americans like our stats, in 1888 an american kid from philadelphia. Then aged 15 gave up baseball, and took up cricket a year later he played his first competitive match. He toured england three times 1897,1903 and 1908, in his final tour.

He topped the english bowling stats for that english season taking taking 87 wickets at 11.01. He is the father of swing bowling,(and not a musical note in site) he used to bowl what he called his angler.

It was a delivery that fooled batsmen he is now an honarary member of lords the home of cricket.

Can you play cricket only you can decide that don’t let the boring people tell you that you should stick to something, if you want to try cricket try it and if it is not for you then so be it but at least give it a go.
then maybe one day you could be playindg at the home of cricket here in england you ntryever know till you
