I stayed up into the early mornings in 2015 to watch India/Pakistan, which was the only WC match on free TV (on OMNI iirc). I loved watching that game and trying to learn the rules on the go.

Man I still don't understand Cricket. It seems similar to baseball instead of running 4 bases you just run back and forth?

Running back and forth gets you runs, but both players need to do it (1 run for each time the 2 batters run and "switch ends"). The other way to get runs is to hit a "boundary" which is hitting a ball past the boundary of the field (the line around the playing field that indicates whats in play). A ball that goes past that boundary but has hit the ground inside the boundary first is worth 4 runs, a ball that goes past the boundary still in the air (like a homerun) is worth 6 runs.

It can be really weird watching cricket because there are a lot of weird terms that get used. Most of those though are describing more in depth things like fielding positions, where the batter is hitting etc. The actual rules aren't that bad to figure out.

Baseball and cricket are similar in complexities and nuances.
They are similar in how the runs are scored over the allotted period, 18 innings and 54 outs for baseball (unless you got extra innings) and two innings/20 outs over an 8 hours game or 4 innings/40 outs over a 5 day game in cricket. Cricket does allow draws, no extra innings

The key difference between the two game is,
In Cricket - Just one good ball is needed to get an out - Everything else can be scored or played for no runs.
In Baseball - One good ball/pitch is needed to score a run - Everything else is a ball/strike/out

But besides that scoring runs and getting outs are almost similar.

world cup is in England so around 50% of the matches are going to be washed out by Rain.

T20 WC then Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

Maybe thats the reason why ECB keeps shortening the format. They were the ones that invented T20. Now they are proposing the 100.
