yeah ... Billrrr ... not many people seem to know about cricket in america. It is played by a number of countries and there is a world cup in cricket which is quite huge. well known teams are - west indies, england, pakistan, india, bangladesh, sri-lanka, australia and south africa. there are a lot more countries which participate to qualify for the world cup which is held every 4 years.
the crowds are not as huge as football crowds but world cup matches or 20/20 tournaments fill the stadiums - about 45,000 people or so.
prasadjain - yes i think all sports should be encouraged.
