why cricket becomes most popular.most of the people in different countries are saying they only watch cricket than any other game .
is it good for other sports
because it is game of uncertainities in the history of cricket many incidents happened recently Netherlands beat the england in opening ceremony match of T20 world cup in its own country. in 1999 world cup semifinal strong contender of world cup south africa tied their match against australia and australia won the world cup. You can't say that this team will win or this team will loose the match. Very interesting game........
Although isn't the football world cup officially the most watched sporting event in the world (easily beating the Olympics, Twenty20, the Superbowl etc etc)?
The guy must be from India or around, and never bothered to check what is going on outside his neck of woods
I find cricket utterly boring....zzzzzz, all that fuss for hitting a ball around that could decapitate someone cos it's quite a hard ball them cricket balls, replace it with a tennis ball and now you are talking...I have a couple of tennis balls....
Considering that India has the largest sports viewing population, and Cricket is the biggest craze that would account for its popularity.
2011 Rugby World Cup...yayyyyyyy
p.s Does anyone know where online , I can watch rugby ,pleeeeease, I know England are due to play New Zealand soon, should be a brilliant game !!!
Superbowl ,well I gotta give a awesome hip hip horray for the Pittsburgh Steelers!!!...they rock ,if we just could get them signed up for the AB's lol
Cricket um like watching paint dry , the one day series not so bad...and yea India does well
Im sorry but that is rubbish.
Cricket has to be one of the most overrated sports of all time.
It is boring to watch and there are much more exciting sports out there for example soccer!!
Soccer is the best sport in the World today!!
Probably just depends on what your own country promotes most of.
If you grow up being taught the sport your parents learned or
communities play/learn the most ,then chances are thats what
Judging by the Olympics from an International Perspective ,
Maybe its "Athletics"
However some countries do excell in Team Sports
Ice-Hockey?..Sweden ,Finland ,Canada , Russia, Pittsburg Penguins ( not sure
I just know everyone will agree with my list
The Czech Republic obviously has the world's best hockey team. Okay, maybe not as recently, but that's only because the U.S. has been stealing all of their greatest players and keeping them for ourselves.
Eaglekiwi, just wrote a hub about rugby today as I am a rugby nut! Have a cool pic of Daniel carter. I watch rugby online, watched all the super 14 games. hey France thrashed the All Blacks last week. I seriously think the Springboks will thrash the lions tomorrow. Okay, to watch online, go to www.myp2p.eu and then look at the toolbar at the top, go to live sports, then click other and ALL the rugby games come up. I watch on media player!
Awesome thanks Cindy!!!...Ha France, no matter should have given the AB's a good boil up with real meat in it..

criket beating the olympics?...at what? there's nothing that can match the olympics. Barrack Obama, the president of brazil, the crown prince of japan, the PM of spain are all going to copehagen norway to bid for thier respective country's chances of hosting the 2016 summer olympics.
the olympics cost upward of $ 20 billions US to host. The beijing olympics has been the most watch live event in history.
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/sport/ … 256063.ece
the most watched event in American history are all olympics.
the olympics is in a league of its own. and soccer is next.
the head of criket is begging the olympics to include it as an olympic sport.
