    There are several different formats - the Test matches are the ones that last for 5 days (England are currently playing The Convicts in The Ashes series right now) but there are ones that are much shorter (one day - each side gets 50 overs and 20/20) which are more dynamic. The shorter formats are more akin to baseball.

    Yes, but only covers the front of your body and doesn’t really help when you are being forced into a wall by a 220lb player going 20mph. Concussions are common, not from impact to the head, but from the jolt the brain takes from impact. It’s the fastest team sport in the world and the puck is frozen solid. Top shooters in the nhl have slapshots in the 90-100mph. Seriously, players regularly play with broken bones in there feet and hands and face. Broken noses are very common and so are broken teeth. It’s a tough sport and injuries are more common than we know. I’m not saying it’s the toughest championship to win, but it’s damn close. My son just finished his minor hockey career and thankfully only broke one finger blocking a snapshot, chipped a bone in his ankle from blocking a shot and bruised his spine from getting hit from behind into the boards.
