5 REASONS WHY CRICKET IS ONE
OF THE BEST SPORTS EVER
Here at Team Colours we’re huge cricket fans. With the T20 cricket World Cup about to get
underway, a lot of people are wondering about the sport. Perhaps you’re from a country where
cricket isn’t popular. Perhaps you’re a Brit who has simply never understood the sport.
Either way, as expert manufacturers of custom cricket clothing, we think cricket is one of the best
sports we ever exported to the rest of the world, and here’s why:

IT’S A MENTAL GAME
Cricket is a game of patience and composure. There is a lot of physical movement in cricket and
it takes a lot of skill to bowl a ball that fast and that accurately. Likewise it takes a lot of skill to hit
a ball that hard, travelling that fast. Unlike its cousin, baseball, cricket can be drawn out over a
matter of days. You need a lot of patience when a test match lasts for 30 hours of play spread
over 5 days. In order to play at your peak for that length of time without faltering takes an
incredible level of mental strength which you simply don’t see in anything outside of competitive
IT’S A HIGHLY SOCIAL GAME
When a single game takes as long as a game of cricket does, you find yourself spending a lot of
time with your team mates. Team cohesion is incredibly important in cricket, as if you don’t like
someone you spend 30 hours playing with per match, you have a problem. In cricket you cheer
when your team mates get runs, and when your team mates cheer for you, it’s your mates who
are cheering for you.
It’s not just the players who are sociable though, as is evidenced by the infamous cricket beer
snake of ’01. The cricket fans of the world are a unique breed who love their sport fiercely.
IT’S BEAUTIFULLY SIMPLE
Unlike football (American or otherwise), baseball or rugby where the rules are quite complicated
and can vary depending on the league or tournament, cricket is incredibly simple. All you need to
play it is a bat, a ball and a second player to join in the fun.
Also, unlike football or rugby where trying to explain the game mid-match can be a tense and
frustrating experience, you will have no shortage of time to explain the game to friends who
haven’t yet grasped what an ‘over’ is.
THE PLAYERS HAVE AMAZING HAIR
Cricket is home to some of the most incredible beards, moustaches and hairdos ever seen in
professional sports. Contrary to popular belief, cricket isn’t a game of boring old men in white
jerseys – modern cricket clothing is bright, fun and colourful. Quite often the same goes for the
players’ hair. Case in point, Colin Miller, WG Grace, Mushtaq Ahmed and Doctor Who.
IT NEVER TAKES ITSELF TOO SERIOUSLY
Cricket is about as laid-back as competitive sports get. Fans can enjoy crosswords and tea
breaks as you play, nobody is afraid to show up in weird and bizarre costumes, and if the
weather is looking a bit rubbish and rainy we can all just pop inside for a bit. Cricket is a game
which brings people together, often for a cup of tea.
