I have watched the first 15 mins of the game & its too boring for me. Ill watch something else on tv like a movie or baseball game (later today).

No but try as I might I've also never even been able to play or watch a cricket game. It's a hard sport to get into here in the US. Although a few colleges have club and intramural teams and the first high school teams were started a few years back so its getting more popular.

DirecTV had a few games on their Channel 101 as a sort of advertising for their premium Cricket Package. I watched for about 25 minutes and I don't think I picked up even one rule. Not having some basis really put me at a disadvantage.

Cricket is an absorbing game rather than an exciting one. It takes time to get into but once hooked ......

It's fairly hard to get into it if you live in a place like the USA but as stated above, its an absorbing game once you get to know it.

According to what I've read on wikipedia it really is a fair bit like baseball except there is only one "base" aside from "home plate," the batter can elect not to run on a hit, and the batter stays at bat if he hits a "home run." Things in quotes denote that while the concept as I understand it is similar in cricket the actual thing is different.
