Why do you guys like cricket?

It’s our passion, it’s really big in our country back home. It’s like religion in our country.

Which country?

India, and Pakistan. (And Australia). It’s easy to play, actually. You can make a stump-like structure on a wall, and it’s easy to fix and easy to play. That’s why everyone loves cricket, you can play anywhere.

So you can just play anywhere?

Yeah, and it’s a very safe game.

Unlike baseball?

Yeah, unless the ball hits your face. The ball is quite a bit harder than a baseball.

Really?

Yeah, you can feel it. This is a real cricket ball.
