Post gifs that make cricket bowling actually look impressive
>>107343630That's a .jpg my phone posting friend.
What a mess m8
>>107344370Dont understand what's impressive about this other than "throw fast"
>>107344386It dips down at exactly the right time; prior to that, it looks like a perfect ball to swing at.
>>107345731It's a perfectly hittable full toss. Why are your batsmen so shit?
>>107345731wait, that webm was supposed to be a baseball highlight?
>>107344370reckon I could hit that
>>107345757Lol your batsmen couldn't hit that using a baseball bat. Wouldn't come close. Imagine using a LITERAL PADDLE and acting superior lmao SO INACCURATE YOU HAVE TO USE A PADDLE
>>107345810You couldn't. Your tard ass would assume it's coming in the middle before it dips down low, swing for a meatball and then stroke out swinging.
>>107344370It feels like it's not really that impressive but then again that's probably deceiving in real life like >>107345731 said.Still a pretty fucking boring sport, boreball or *crickets*
>>107344360I still get shivers lads, the Batsmans little shrug look after was great too
>>107344370Any cricket fan who cannot see the obvious skill in this needs to get their eyes checked
>>107345823Nah I'd swing low
>>107345819I understand your sport better than you could ever understand cricket
>>107345883>Using a paddle because your batsmen are inaccurate and couldn't hit with a bat

>>107345819Baseball is a British invented sport, so, like... come on man.
>>107346012>missed 4honestly pathetic considering the circumstances
>>107345972>LOL THIS ISNT EVEN A COMPETITIONIt's not, you literal retard, since there isnt even a pitch
>>107346044How come no cricketer who stands to make infinitely more $$$$ being a professional MLB player has ever swapped sports? Not even as a designated hitter? OH WAIT BECAUSE THEY LITERALLY COULDNT L M A O
Howling at this fatNot surprising that nobody respect fatland anymore. Go China!
>>107346085>No argumentA top cricket player stands to earn more in the MLB if they could be top MLB talent but they can't so they never will LOL
>>107346092Have you ever thought that people might play something for the love of the sport; not the money?
>>107345914>put players in mid on, mid off, long on and long off>catch or run out team for less than 50 runs each inningsCongratulations, America can get BTFO'd by Afghanistan or worse, Ireland now every single time
>>107346092Oh is this the salary thread? I thought this was a cricket thread. So why are you here?
>*bounces the american*hit this
>>107344370does the batter gets an extra attempt if the guy catching the ball doesn't catch it?
>>107344370I remember baseball being the first sport I wanted to practice in a club when I was little. there were no baseball clubs. maybe I would have been the goat.
>>107346041>that dude at the top celebrating the exact same way pleases my autism
>>107346894You're French so you're only purpose in life is to service brown cock
>>107346894goat fucker maybehaha GOTTEM
>>107343630Aussies cheated and still lost. Bit embarrassing
>>107344198Very poor sportsmanship
I could heem every non-Commonwealth shitter ITT
unironically imagine if they played cricketthey could literally smash every single ball out of the stadium with pure strength and athleticism alone
>>107347114Just like the windies golden age
>>107344370I'd heem that into the stands
>>107346085got a:chinese gfchinese phone chinese landlord what use do I have for America in 2021?
>>107344370>boreball's pitches aka a full toss in cricket is literally the easiest ball to hit and any self respecting batsman would kick themselves for not smashing for sixAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAA
>>107348275I enjoyed pre-moustache Mitchell Johnson
>>107348442more of a post moustache man mehttps://youtu.be/EdGAgjKNSwg
>>107348383A professional baseball player could be a decent cricket batsman. A cricket player would have zero chance of touching a baseball pitched by a professional. Simple as.
reckon it's possible they're different sports mate?
>>107348442HE BOWLS TO THE LEFTHE BOWLS TO THE RIGHT
>>107348922No it's impossible lebron james would be an elite TE, I mean UFC, I mean fast bowler. Goddamn american slave children would be elite could you imagine lebron james playing baseball against Australia! cricket btfo.
jesus i didnt realize you bogans got so salty lmao
>a baseball weighs the same as a women and children's cricket ballAHAHAHAHAAAAAAHAAAA
>>107348622No point arguing with poos and descendants of criminals. It's been tried before. Let them enjoy in their faggot sport while we, the proud minority, judge them silently from the contrarian position of truth.
>>107348257That's not cricket. But if we're doing GOAT moments...
>>107349921>>107348257all other sports and sportsman and fans, especially you fans, are shit
hilarious that people think hitting a 78MPH curveball would be easy
>78 mph full tossEven the women would slog that yank pie chucker shite. Have some real MEN'S reverse swing at 90mph insteadhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ue0ghB6Z_C4
Why do people compare the two? It's obvious cricket has a higher hit and run rate than baseball, it's meant to be that way.
The worst part of that American propaganda video was that they claimed 90 mph as the speed of cricket deliveries........then had a spinner chuck leisurely on astroturf Such blatant manipulation but it worked anyway because Americans are just that dumb and desperate to believe USA BEST SPORT IN DA WORLD!
>>107357301DO NOT REDEEM SIR BITCH BASTARD BLOODY BASTARD kwab didn't read
>>107346840Imagine getting done by the Paki Martin Saggers.
Cricket is far more cruel than BaseballBaseball>Ball comes at you through the air, aimed away from the man>Ball hits you it's not your fault>Miss the ball up to 3 times then you're out, stand a bit in the field then the bench>Get another go a little bit laterCricket:>Ball fucking bounces across the ground, swinging, spinning sometimes just chucked at you out of spite>Hits you, tough shit should have moved cunt>Miss the ball once and you're out, spend the rest of the afternoon stood in a field or on the bench>You get another go next week
>>107346867If it's the last strike he gets a chance to run for 1rst before the catcher can throw him out.
>>107356623There's just something about the 2005 Ashes
>>107348622Name one that has done it
>>107357626Let's not forget the pitchers have to throw it into the batters little hitting zone. Imagine requiring bowlers to bowl into the slot - six sixes every over.
>>107347114that west indians m8 and they mog african americans
antipodeans are not welcome on this board
imagine the pitches he could throw
>>107346930I was retarded and thought it was the same bowl. Impressive
>>107348275>cuts out the part where kp does the wanker sign with the ball
>>107359357They don't have to throw it in the strike zone. Did you not watch the first baseball webm in this thread?
>>107344370Baseball is good.
>>107358457why would we play an inferior sport
What's up with the seething yank?
>>107381123You, my dear, have just been BLOWN THE FUCK OUT
>>107345914God this is so retarded. I know you're an idiot cunt and won't listen, but in case anyone else is not a knower: The bat is bigger in cricket because you are supposed to be able to hit most of the balls, in cricket it's meant to be easy to hit runs and difficult to get wickets, in baseball it's meant to be easy to strike out and difficult to hit runs. Also as mentioned he's a spin bowling allrounder on artificial turf (aka not a specialist bowler and the ball won't spin, the whole point of his bowling style), put him up against a decent specialist fast bowler and he wouldn't get half as many. And aside from all this, cricket is a tactical game about how you place the ball and how you respond to the other team's tactics, baseball is pretty much just swing hard and try to hit.
>>107346162It's like that retard 7 year old at school who never had a dad to tell him to shut the fuck up so he thinks he has an answer to everything>nah dats easy as I'll'd just smash it hard as over topping of everyone No amount of logic or reasoning will ever get through.

>>107348622Imagine being this confident and being this wrong. America.
>>107381704Based retard: the country
>>107344370how often do they snick it through to the keeper?
>>107382303ive always wondered this. Can you be caught off a snick in baseball?
>>107345914is this the equivalent of taking the goalkeeper from a 5th division amateur team and making haaland take shots at him?
>>107347114>Over the course of my five years at BYU, I have concrete proof of 13 to 15 guys (using steroids), and I would suspect five others...And BYU is more temperate than most programs. Being around NFL and NFL Europe players, they would tell me stuff that blew my mind. I know other schools are worse. I would bet my house you could find at least five guys on every Division I team in the country (using steroids).>My best friend was a steroid monster. I shot him up probably four times in the butt. He couldn’t do it himself. He was afraid of needles. He was naturally 245 or 250 pounds, but he got up to 312 with a 36-inch waist. He had stretch marks on his chest and shoulder and eventually blew out both of his knees. When I was with the Broncos, they brought him in for a workout. The offensive line coach came to me and said, ‘What’s your friend on?’ Another guy we played with, who is still in the NFL, would come back at the end of a season weighing 270. Three weeks into the offseason, he was 295 and buffed. It wasn’t a big mystery what he was doing. Three guys I played with in the NFL, I saw them use (steroids). The coaches knew the guys on the juice. To pretend it doesn’t go on would be a farce. It’s the big no-no nobody wants to talk about. And you don’t want to know what’s going on at the junior college level, where no testing is being done.
>>107382001>Australia lost a war against this
>>107344360i would have just swung the bat at it, but i'm glad you poor people have your own fun game you can all get excited about
>>107383175just admit you've been filtered by cricket and leave
>poos highly competative>sportkek
>>107345914>all the salty poo commentsLOL
>>107347079Play to win
>>107381704You don't understand how fast and with how much movement MLB pitchers throw. Hitting a baseball is the most difficult single act in sport.
The seething Aussies and Kiwis in this thread lolololol
i find both cricket and baseball comfy tbqh. yeah hitting a baseball one time is harder than hitting a cricket ball one time. it's really not a very insightful comparison since the constraints and aims are so different between the two sports.
>>107343630Was Muralitharan cheating or was his arm just fucked up?
>>107382869No it's much worse than that. First off it is supposed to be relatively easy to hit the ball in cricket, and difficult in baseball. A direct comparison like this is equivalent of getting a golfer to try and hit a free throw vs a basketball player trying to chip into the hole from 100 yards. >He got 6/10 shots in and the basketballer didn't get any of his golf shots in. That means all pro golfers are better than pro basketball players.Doesn't make sense at all. Second, cricket is a tactical game, you can't just hit the ball anywhere at random. Baseball is not, you just swing. So counting the number of hits is extremely misleading, where was he hitting it? He'd be caught out on most of them. Third is what you mentioned, it's one of the best baseball players vs a no-name amateur. Also there's the type of player he is, an 'all rounder' and particularly an amateur one is not that great at batting or bowling compared to a specialist in either discipline. He's a spin bowler, who bowls slowly and relies on the ball moving off the pitch to deceive the batter to make it harder to hit. The ball won't move off artificial turf in the same way it does off grass, so he is basically just putting up slow, easy to hit deliveries which even a complete beginner should be able to connect with most of the time. It would be a totally different story if he was even a low-level fast bowler. I could go on and on. It just has no relevance to anything. They might as well have showed a clown riding around on a unicycle and said >SEE? A SQUARE IS BIGGER THAN A SPOON. USA! USA! USA! BTFO PAJEET FAGS HAHAHA LMAO AMERICA WINS AGAINIt's literally one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.
>>107357737Only if first isn't occupied with less than two outs.
>>107383406>Say something stupid>"That's wrong, that's stupid">SEETHING XXXXDDDD TROLLED U!!!!
>>107384318>comes off the bat>gets caught>not outthis is retarded
>>107388312It's out if the batter has already had 2 strikes.
>>107356623Simon Jones and Matty Hoggard had bouts of absolutely criminal swing, should have been investigated by the authorities tbqh
Baseball>every ball is an easy full toss>aim at someone's head in baseball with a full toss, easy to see coming, easy to duck or move>everybody cries and wants to fight the bloke who threw it>walk out for 5 seconds, if lucky hit the ball out of the field for a homo run>everybody wears a gigantic glove to make catching very easy>half of the 'athletes' are morbidly obese>breaks every 10 minutes>9 livesCricket>ball deviates from surface>ball has a raised seam making bounce unpredictable>aiming for the head and body is a legitimate tactic>no giant catching glove except for the wicket keeper>bowler charges in from run off and doesn't just stand there being obese>spinners can turn the ball around a corner of a pitch>good batsmen can bat for 2 days, lose your wicket and you are out>fielding side stays out on the field until all batsmen are out, often 2 days>games go for 5 daysBaseball is fucking gay and another burger shit sport made for TV so advertisers can jam every break with the latest we love nogs ads.
>>107345757Cricket doesn't have foul balls though....
/cric/ is up lads.>>107392140
