i think cricket is a sport that is ruling more of the subcontinent than ruling globally....... here in the USA, ppl dont evn know wat cricket is, its more of football, basketball or baseball ... but im sure if cricket was to be brought here to the states, it wudnt take ppl any time 2 love it! Wink.....

i really enjoy watching cricket and really consider it as my fav sport even though its not a common play in the US as i consider it very entertaining and enjoying.... in india and pakistan, where cricket is big and ppl r very much in luv wid the sport, its more entertaining as compared to subcontinet's hockey, football or any other sport there is.... due to more entertainment, cricket is more popular in pak and india..... i dont know about other nations and their concern wid cricket, but for sure in the subcontinet cricket is very much overtaking every sport there is, and if one really understands this sport then that person will also understand that its a unqiue game for a lot of ppl which makes it a big craze!

It depends on where you're living. Anon, as you mentioned there's a big hype for football/soccer here much like in Brazil. When you have someone representing your country so well, then they make good role models and people want to be like them so they thrive to be the best in that sport.
I remember when i was in college and the WC was on, everyone came in wearing India/Pakistan shirts. We had friendly discussions on who was going to win it was very fun - ah the memories Smile
