Our British "mates" (as they would say) taught us how to play cricket.
I don't remember all the rules, I'm not very good at sports and all they entail, but I do remember that under NO CIRCUMSTANCE WHATSOEVER am I to compare the sport to baseball.
Because if you do compare the sport to baseball, your British friend may or may not threaten to throw you out of his house. (And he has a pool, so you really want to stay.)
The sport that is NOT like baseball.
