I  agree. You "should" ask, Has cricket overtaken other sports in India? not whether it is overtaking other sports in India??

Yes Cricket has already overtaken other sportsOuch.In india the most effect sport is its national sport -Hockey.How many ppl even know that hockey is India's national game?Confused

Cricketers always remain in news & addvertisements whether they r palying worstConfused, on the other hand, even when players win gold or silver in Olympicsor asian games or win any match in other sports like tennis, polo, swimming etc.they get space only in the small news in the corner of newspaper and few lines on the TVnews sometimes not even thatOuch.

hardly 13-14 countries play cricket ( mostly teams r just kid like bangladesh)and participate in the world cup.but when Indian or pakistani team win just a normal match in any championship ppl react like they have win World cup of Football by beating 34-35 powerful teamsConfusedOuch

It may be correct for the sport of cricket taking over other sports more specifically in India and Pakistan, however, looking from a much bigger global perspective, football/soccer still dominates the world of sport. Football is played in all continents of the world including India as i can recall a recent visit by Indian national soccer team to my country. There is also a growing prominance of the sport of Rugby with growing number of countries introducing the sport in their respectiv countries.

Nevertheless, with growing emphasis of cricket together with the huge buzz of cricet world cup, it wont take much time before cricket becomes one of the top sports if not  "the" top sport.Clap
