Video of the Day: An American explains cricket

If you’ve traveled to any of the Commonwealth nations, you’ve likely encountered cricket on television or in the newspapers. You may have even gotten stuck in a conversation about it while having no clue what anyone is saying. Heck, you might have even played it…poorly. Americans don’t understand cricket. Is it like baseball? What’s a wicket? Why does a match take so many days? Thankfully, one America has taken it upon himself to help us all learn about the game. Sit back, relax and let comedian Reginald D. Hunter explain the ins and outs of cricket. I think you’ll see that it’s a lot simpler than you feared.
