By Jimminy... Cricket!

Got into the Cricket World Cup because of lack of interest in the sports. 50 days till Baseball so why the hell not?

I've watched about 12 hrs of it combined from yesterday and today. I keep thinking what would make the game more exciting to American people.

The speed. Cricket is slow. It take roughly 4 hours to complete one half of the game. Why not speed that up? Baseball did it. I say cut the field in half and pitch 5 balls to each of the 10 players. I know there is an 11th person so in case of a tie they come and get pitched 5 extra. Keep the points the same.

The fielders have one handed gloves (just like baseball). too many times balls dropped out of bare hands and the game could have been won (or lost) because they couldn't catch the ball. If not gloves the mitt that the keeper (catcher) wears on one hand.

There should also be more introductions of players. I don't know how however it was cool when they started counting down for the matches however for some one who has no clue who these people are and who they play for in the rest of the cricket world. Hell I didn't know we Americans had a cricket team until today!
