    Why do America not prefer to play Cricket ?

    Cricket is not prevalent in America as in India or Australia, I wonder why its happening

    Because baseball and not cricket was invented in the United States.

    As JimTxMiller said, baseball was invented in America, and cricket was not.  Baseball, in my opinion, is a better game.  I once had an indian friend (when I was very young), and we used to play together a mix between the two games.  I don't know much about cricket, but I am pretty sure that I know more than the regular American does, and that is why we play baseball here.

    Maybe Americans don't have the patience for a game that lasts as long as cricket does. It can be difficult to comprehend how a test match can last five days and (sometimes) still not have a winner.
    Even a fifty over match lasts nearly eight hours if you include the dinner break, which is more than twice as long as a game of baseball. That's why attempts to get Americans interested in cricket are based on the T20 format of the game.
    As a proud supporter of the South African cricket team I don't know anything about baseball, so I can't comment on which is the better game.

      Wow, I didn't know that about cricket.  I still like baseball better, and also understand why other Americans would like it better too.

      That's fine. It would be a pretty dull world if everyone liked the same things.

      You're right about that.
