The World Is A Big Blue Marble When You See It From Above Review with images

AdvantagesT20 cricket is exciting

DisadvantagesTest cricket can be boring

"...I have been a cricket fan most of my life. Nowadays cricket is my most favourite sport. It used to be football but I got fed up of the huge salaries earned by players. I even don't watch 'Match of the Day' every week. Having Sky Sports has really helped my cricket knowledge. Most recently I have been watching the New Zealand v Pakistan series on Zee TV and India v Sri Lanka and South Africa v England on Sky Sports 1. The purpose of this op is to give ..." Read review

AdvantagesIndia to win with style

cricket is 2 interesting

AdvantagesRare intellectual sport

DisadvantagesLonger than other sports

"Cricket is interesting.I think it is the only sport where you actually have to think about what you are doing and what you are going to do unlike 'sports' like darts and walking. The recent ICC knockout trophey has shown that unlike most other sports each team has a chance of winning despite of an inferior team as it is one the few sports that actually is determined by the team that actually wants to win more rather than having a team full of superstars ..."

Cricket has got to be the most boring thing ever created

AdvantagesOther Sports

DisadvantagesIt's cricket

"Why, oh why, oh why. It's just an exercise in pointlessness. I remember standing in the field at school bored out my skull, waiting, waiting, just in case the heavy red ball happened to come my way and when it did I had to throw it back. What fun. In an hour it might have come my way, ooh, at least twice. My brain was starting to rot away. Boring. On television it's even more boring, droning commentators, horrible white clothes, green, green ..." Read review
