Well as I'm typing this we've survived the first over so my heart beat has settled down a little! If you're not a cricket fan then I know this is probably a bit hard to understand but there's nothing like cricket to build and sustain the tension of a sporting event. All of you football fans, you know the knot in your stomach you feel before, and sometimes during, a tight football match? Well imagine that for 5 days; 6 hours play each day! When you get into it each ball is a crescendo of tension and action. Everything can happen each ball - a crushing disappointment (if it's your team!) of a wicket; the anti-climax of a testing dot-ball (where something has actually happened - usually a good piece of judgement by the batsmen to leave a ball moving at 90mph past him and his wicket) or the joy of a beautifully struck 4 to the boundary. And that's only 3 options - lots more can happen with each ball. Once you get hooked by cricket it's addictive, you just need to learn enough to get into it! If you want to try and get addicted then simply have the BBC's Test Match Special playing on your computer while you're online (if you're allowed!) and you might get hooked!
