This CBS feature on cricket in the USA is well worth a look as it also includes a TV news report on the game being played among the young (admittedly ex-pat) community. There are the standard comments:

"There is wicket keeping – it's kind of like catching like a catcher and then there is bowling which is like a pitcher and then there's fielding which is, you know, fielding."

But there are also interesting comments about the profile of the game among the next generation and some great clips of the youngsters in action.
