Cricket and Baseball: statistics, bowlers, and pitchers


One of the things I enjoy about Cricket is the incredible number of statistics that are compiled; sometimes it seems that more statistics are compiled about Cricket than Baseball. Baseball fans would feel right at home in the maze of Cricket statistics.

Baseball fans should feel right at home when they consider the skill levels required by a pitcher vs. a bowler (the bowler is the player who sends that hard cricket ball towards the batsman.) The great bowlers and great pitchers should, and probably have, compared notes.

To learn about the differences between Cricket and Baseball, try “Baseball vs. Cricket“.

  1. Prajwol Bhattarai (PJ) says:

    I haven’t played baseball but I would love to play it someday. Somehow I feel that baseball limits the players in the physical side as I have noticed that all major baseball stars are big men. Cricket is hence, more technical and can be equally played and remain competitive by men/women of all sizes. Cricket is not just about your muscle, but its more about your skills.
