Default Newest team's interesting path

South Korean team trade home runs for sixes

South Korean baseball players are trading diamonds for ovals ahead of September’s Asian Games, with the country’s recently established national T20 side gearing up to take on the likes of India, Pakistan and world champions Sri Lanka in cricket’s shortest form.
Unlike the majority of developing cricket nations in the region that rely heavily on first or second-generation immigrants from the sub-continent, South Korea has built their side entirely from local baseball talent, raising the question of cricket’s viability in baseball-centric markets – namely the USA and Japan.
For the players, the transition has been an up and down affair, with varied degrees of difficulty associated with each discipline.
"When making the switch from baseball, batting was quite tricky,” 23-year-old allrounder Choi Jiwon told Al Jazeera.
“Bowling was trickier. But fielding was easy.”
"What I like about cricket is there is more at stake when you bat. You only get one chance, unlike baseball where you may bat four or five times in a game.
"I really enjoy the fact that you have to focus so hard to achieve success."
