    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)?

      Olympic association is also considering to include T20 cricket as official game in near olympics. America is also thinking to start tournament like IPL and ICL in its own country.

    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.

      But football is by far and away the most watched sport in south and central America, Europe, eastern Asia, south-east Asia and Africa.  It is also a relatively popular sport in the rest of the world egg Middle East, north America, India etc.

    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

    becomes popular.

    Judging by the Olympics from an International Perspective ,

    Maybe its "Athletics" smile

    However some countries do excell in Team Sports

    Ice-Hockey?..Sweden ,Finland ,Canada , Russia, Pittsburg Penguins ( not sure
    Rugby-New Zealand

    I just know everyone will agree with my list lol

    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.  big_smile

    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.
