If the USA or Russia could play cricket we might know who is the best at sport.

America has its sports , NBA ,NFA etc to which it excels and is indeed the World Champions of itself. Russia is good at shooting events.
Im not suggesting that cricket is a global game . What it is , is a team game and character building. If anyone of these two ageing superpowers could adopt cricket as the "litmus paper" of global sporting prowess we might be Inclined to judge them properly.

What is cricket. Cricket is one of those unknown sports that no one cares about.

Thank you for responding.
I am saying that cricket mirrors the character of its participants. If any of the major players in International affairs adopted cricket as a national sport it would bring into sharp scrutiny the nature of their people.
In England we have a sense of fair play that cricket embodies. I suggest that other pretenders to World sports and Indeed World Dominance should look at cricket to express themselves. Karl Marx never played the game and look what a mess he left behind.

Reasons for voting decision: Counter Elis. PM if vote is withheld. How is carpathia related to the discussion at hand? . That source is out of topic. Awarding 7 points to an argument that consists of personal attacks only is a VOTE BOMB

Reasons for voting decision: Con used a source. This is a pointless debate because if the USA played Russia in cricket it is obvious we would know who is the best. Thank you con for making this a pointless debate.
