Maybe the US should try to find a few high school baseball players and put together a cricket team and call it the dream team.
Don't worry about all us old geezers on the list who were brought up on baseball and football and basketball. Besides half or more of the people on the list aren't old enough to remember real baseball, anyway, before baseball teams became playthings for bored billionaires, and when kids could play ball without fancy uniforms and pushy parents hollering at them and nagging the umpires. Kids today and their kids are soccer and lacrosse and tennis players (no cricket, though) who ski and shoot hoops because it's fun, not because dad needs to relive his childhood.
