I beg to disagree. What about motor racing, when a slight error of judgement can result in someone's death? A batsman only has to make one lapse and he could be out. This compares with a bowler who can be hit for six one ball, and take a wicket the next, pleased to get the second chance maybe denied to his opponent.
Remember that even in boxing it isn't just a case of you making a mistake - someone has to take advantage of it.
