Quote of the Day: On test cricket


"Cricket, especially in Test form, is a conceptual sport... it is the great game of the mind."
~ from the Guardian Sportsblog post 'How to make cricket commentary more compelling: through good storytelling'

  1. Is that the same for Aussie Rules? It doesn't seem to have much skill factor to qualify as [quality] sport.
    And 90,000 Australians turning up to watch test cricket - can't see them saying to each other, "this is such a great conceptual experience"; "my mind is really being expanded here"
