Cricket....What's the point? 15:12 - May 19 with 1516 viewsymaohyd

Don't get me wrong I think cricket is a lovely sport. If I could turn the clock back wish I'd got into it more and joined a club etc for the socialising and all that.

But test match cricket as a professional sport, just don't get it. Surfing the net just now, looking at BBC Sport web site and the main headline is England v Sri Lanka 1st test the score etc and I realise it's that time of year of massive headlines for a game where in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter one jot who wins.

What I love about following the Swans and football in general is that every point matters. The stresses of a dodgy season, that win against Norwich which for me was arguably the biggest of the season, the relief afterwards, exhalation, brilliant.

Then along comes cricket and for me the sense of so fu cking what. County cricket!!! ???Nobody watches it. England win or Sri Lanka win and.....?

Surely a professional sport with the big headlines has to mean something? Any other sport in the world and it usually does. Every game lost in NFL and you don't get through to the play offs, same for baseball and all American sports.

Even rugby and the much maligned Pro 12 league, there's something on it.

Surely the future of cricket in the professional world has to be 20twenty?

I can definitely see the attraction of sitting in the sun watching it with your mates with ice cold beers for five hot summer days but I've tried to watch it on the telly and it sends me into a swift coma.

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

Yes, there's definitely something charming about cricket.

I've been to one day tests in Australia and the Caribbean, only as I was back packing and on holiday and had a brilliant time.

If there was some kind of league table, over a two year period for test matches then perhaps I could understand the massive media coverage and excitement.
