Why cricket is popular than baseball in the world?
I think baseball is much fun.
Cricket and baseball are pretty similar from an outsider's perspective desu. Slow, "boring" bat-and-ball games with weird rules that only a certain segment of the global population cares about. We just like baseball because it's part of our culture, I'm sure if I grew up in Australia I'd think that cricket was great and that baseball was boring as hell.
>Why cricket is popular than baseball in the world?
Cricket was spread by the largest empire in human history. So everywhere the British went (Africa, South Asia, Australia), cricket got some kind of foothold. Baseball was spread by the US, so it's limited to North America, East Asia, Central America, and the Caribbean.
>Because cricket was spread by Britain to her colonies whereas America had none
Not really true, it's just that by the time the US really got interested in the empire business all the good colonial territory was already taken. The US did have Puerto Rico, Cuba, and the Philippines as colonies, and baseball is still popular in all 3 countries. It's also the most popular sport in Japan, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, South Korea and Taiwan, and the #2 sport in most of Central America.
>Good banter as well as cricket never reached America.
Cricket was fairly popular in the US in the early 19th century. The first cricket match was actually played here all the way back in 1840, Canada brought all of its best players and beat some guys from local clubs in Philly in Boston. Baseball overtook it after the Civil War and cricket gradually faded into irrelevance (partially because cricket was seen as overly aristocratic back then).
Cricket is such a shitty sport that even Poo in Loos can play competitively. There are no Poo in Loos in any major US sport and they are fucking terrible at soccer. They are the worst athletes in the world yet are good at cricket.
Why the fuck would we give a single fuck about your sports or soccer when it's not played here traditionally? Only games kids grow up playing are cricket, chess and real hockey (not the skating on ice bullshit).
>According to the Laws of Cricket, an appeal is a verbal query, usually in the form of, "How's that?" to an umpire. Since the taking of a wicket is an important event in the game, members of the fielding team often shout this phrase with great enthusiasm, and it has transmuted into the slightly abbreviated form, "Howzat?", often with a greatly extended final syllable. Sometimes the second syllable is omitted entirely, the player emitting an elongated cry of simply "How?"

Considering your massive:

One would think you would try some better bantz, m8.
