What's baseball doing there? In that case, cricket is much more demanding than BBall. A test match lasts for five days. When you are batting -- it is just you against bowlers with no one to help you. On the top of it you have to hit a ball travelling around 100mph which also bounces off the ground and swings and spins in all directions. And you might need to do so for 1, 2, 8 hours, or even a couple of days in a row untill you make that one mistake.
Also rugby is more demanding than football. No pads or helmets, almost non-stop game for 80 mins with being hit all over the field.
And of course hockey should have been there.
Rugby > Football
Cricket > Baseball
Soccer > Basketball
