Hello there humans! It’s Wanderfulsoul again writing her second blog about Cricket and Avatars. Now, I saw micky-the-slanted-salerno posted a new double rewards blog again— Blog about Cricket and Avatars and Earn Double Rewards in my home page of this site, — Bitlanders.com
To start off, I am a Filipina who grew up in the Philippines in which Cricket isn’t popular in the said country. So how can I freakin’ write something about this?! I don’t know anything about cricket! Why couldn’t it be Soccer / Association football instead?! Talk about soccer, players like David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo are so freakin’ HOT! Though Beckham already retired, he is still a 40 year old hottie! *drooling* But, he is already 40 so I’m switching to a younger one, Cristiano Ronaldo my baby! (HAHAHAHA! Oh! Come on! Don’t deny it ladies, I know you also want him. *wink * ) Good God! Why are you so hot and talented Cristiano? Ship! (HAHA yes I said ship, go with it. * tongue hanging out *) Marry me Ronaldo! (*Drooling to the Nth level* ROFL! HAHAHAH! )
But wait! Let’s back up, this blog isn’t about soccer or my dreams about Cristiano my love, it’s about cricket. So again, what the fudge is a cricket?! ‘coz the only cricket I know is this…

*HAHA!* Okay! Serious mode! I’m not going to tell you about the history of cricket and where it all began ‘cause, well, ughh.. this is a blog and not a freakin’ class report! (Though Hillary wants every single detail to be posted here. *sigh* HAHA! Hi Hillary! How are you? *wink* ) What am I talking about? I’m beating around the bush here. *Pfftt!* (Obviously!) Alright, fine! (You win this time Hillary!) I’m going to tell you guys a brief overview about cricket, and since I love you guys, you don’t need to google it. I’ll google it for you. *wink*
Below you'll find out the following subtopics on this blog:
- WHAT IS CRICKET?
- BITLANDERS: SUPPORTING CRICKET WORLD CUP 2016 THROUGH AVATARS
- HOW WANDERFULSOUL SUPPORT CRICKET WORLD CUP 2016
So, I'm going to try my best to explain everything to you (or just give you links *wink*).
WHAT IS CRICKET?
To start off, cricket is most popular in Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, Ireland, Kenya, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, Scotland, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies and Zimbabwe. Cricket is also popular in some other countries not mentioned above.
This national sport was first played in England during the 16th century and was later introduced during the time of the British Empire in the 19th and 20th century (so that explained why it’s not quite popular here in the Philippines, hmmm…).
Cricket is said to be just like baseball, you see a ball, you hit the ball — with a bat of course . *tongue’s out* This national sport is played between two teams which are composed of 11 members each who are required to score. It is played in a circular field which is called cricket field (well, duhh! Obviously.) This circular field has a strip of a less than an inch of a grass called the pitch. In a pitch there are three wooden sticks called the wicket which are placed in one of the ends of the pitch.
As I was researching more about cricket, I learned that there are different levels of cricket. To tell you frankly, I had a hard time understanding cricket that it came to a point that I asked Toshi and Aham - Aham to help me understand it. HAHA *facepalm*
Toshi then told me there are different levels of cricket such as:
- Club level cricket
- National Cricket
- International Cricket
Also, Toshi mentioned there are different formats of cricket, some of these formats are:
- Test match
- One Day International (ODI):
- Twenty 20
- Super 6
- Champions Trophy
I wanted to explain each of the following I listed above briefly to let you guys know what these things are. But seriously though, I just couldn’t. It is hard for me to explain what these different levels and different formats are all about. I’m sorry for that (boo!!), but — worry not, you can check out Harrrr’s blog about cricket. He explained there the different formats I listed above plus the teams that could play all international cricket formats.
