    Cricket?
    Is that this sport that looks like baseball, but with the bat upside down? :wink:

    If you didn't say that FVO, I'd still be thinking it's the game where you're supposed to kick a ball through gates with some kind of golf club...

    @tslas: Nice of you to come here to the Dutch subforum and congratulate the fans :)

    FVO, Yes it does look like Baseball.

    However, sorry to Dutch fans..
    Today, Netherlands played the worst game in the history of T20 cricket, got bowled out for 39 and Srilanka won it in 5 overs..

    Thanks for the compliment I guess ;). But here in Holland *nobody* watches cricket. It's just not popular, at all. Let alone people know the rules ;). I myself have no idea.. it looks like baseball wearing silly dressed up clothes and a lot slower... with a bat that looks like a cutting board... So no, I guess it's just not our sport, although there seems to be a national team ;).
