Cricket and baseball have some similarities, including their terminology, rules, and strategies. Which is more challenging between those two? Do you think top cricket players like Dhoni would play baseball as well as they play cricket if they had to?
Although the rules and terminologies have something in common in the games of cricket and baseball, I don't think that the game itself will be played the same. The style of hitting and pitching the ball is already different.
I think I agree with Sonny as well. I think the small technical differences in hitting would make it very strange for a player of one sport to switch to the other. I do think that had Dhoni lived somewhere that baseball was the prominent sport he would be a standout in that sport as well.
You know, with all the reality shows they have now, this idea would be an interesting concept to base one on. Take the top players from different sports and see how well they play other sports. Maybe even make it a competition with a broad range of different sports they must compete in. I think I would watch it.
That's a great idea Sully. It would be exciting to watch a top player playing games he is not skilled to play. I can wait to see Dhoni playing soccer and Raul Gonzales driving for Ferrari in a F1 race.
I think Dhoni won't be that good when playing baseball. Look at the Michael Jordan, he is really good in basketball but never became that good in baseball. I know it is a bad comparison but I think that changing to another sport is not that easy.
