Re: what makes cricket a good spectator sport
I find it enjoyable because you always have something going on, there's strategy involved that requires thinking (certain batsmen have certain weaknesses, plus your bowlers have strengths, both of which you have to play to + you also have to worry about whether you should be trying to restrict runs or take wickets if you're the fielding team and making runs/not losing wickets if you're the batting team) and (most of the time) it's competitive. There's always a chance that the batsman could make runs or that the bowler could take a wicket.
Plus when you go, it's just good fun. Probably the most enjoyable sport to be apart of the crowd (though I would like to go to an English soccer game).
