There are other sports like soccer, hockey, basketball, wrestling, Tennis, and so on but it seem that no other sport is as popular than cricket where cricket is played. With so much technical stuff, interference of the climate, time consuming and not cheap either. So why so many people are just crazy about cricket? Your take? Cricket was originated in England and if you look around you can clearly notice the fact that cricket is only famous in the countries which were under British rule. That is Australia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and South Africa. But....that is not the only reason why cricket is so popular in these countries. The game of cricket had all the ingredients in it to become a excellent sport to play. 1. It requires skill and it's a enjoyable process to acquire those skills. --------------------------------------... 2. It teaches patience and composure. --------------------------------------... 3. Cricket is a good game to improve your social skills because when you are getting runs, your team mates cheer for you so that you feel like you belong. --------------------------------------... 4. Cricket keeps your mind alert with deciding how you're going to bowl, where you're going to hit the ball, if you have time for another run and whether you can get there in time to catch the ball In the end........we all know how fun it is to smash the ball down the ground or to rip off the middle stump of the batsman. Cheers to cricket.

You are forgetting South Africa. With a population of over 50 million. Rugby is definately in the top 3 if not number 1 in RSA

If gymnastics is a sport than so is cheerleading and cheerleading is more competitive and more dangerous so I think cheerleading should be a sport

Why make your leaderboard from the most viewed world competitions such as the football world cup or rugby union world cup PS. Cricket is not a version of softball it is an ancient English sport. Softball and baseball are varients of the original sport rounders.

I'm Italian and to say that basketball is more popular than football (soccer) in my country is ridiculous. I know for a fact that football is the most popular sport also in France Argentina and Spain. But is the second one in Japan which baseball is the first


Thank you

Lacrosse is my favorite sport because its a all around gam. In this sport you can hit like hockey and football (But the only thing is yoy can't grab), you run like football and American football , and the plays are just like basketball.

Wow, has no body ever looked at how many registered netball players there are? It would beat most if not all the sports listed here but does not get a mention? Obviously this is written by an American male.

Obviously this website is done my an American male. Can't believe they don't even mention or list the most popular women's sport in commonwealth countries. In fact in many commonwealth counties like Australia, South Africa, New Zealand & England there are more registered players than rugby. I'm talking about the game "Netball". For the American male that wrote this, it's like basketball but you can't dribble.

I just want to say that horse back riding should be in here. It is a sport. We do more than just sit there and the horse doesn't do all the work. It is in the Olympics. It is done all over the world. We work our butts off. When football players fall they fall like 2inches, we fall more than 5feet. Yeah. They get tackled but we jump fences and can be stepped on by a 1000 pound animal. Their teammate speaks their language when ours can't even speak. Every time we practice we do all the talking. We do know the risks at hand when riding but we do it anyway. When we mess up or fall off we get back on and start again until we get it right. Who's the athlete now?

In my decisions the top 5 sports are (1)Softball (2)hockey (3)basketball (4)snowboarding

cricket is most popular than basketball

Yea where is motocross.

Soccer sucks Football the greatest sport
-Nicolas Williams

Cricket has been around since before baseball and softball. Please do not reference cricket in the same sentence as those two sports. There are significant difference. It is like calling American Football similar to Soccer.

Failure to approve this resolution would weaken our country’s credibility to prevent the use and proliferation of unconventional weapons and thereby greatly endanger our country’s security and interests and those of our regional allies. AIPAC maintains that it is imperative to adopt the resolution to authorize the use of force and take a firm stand that the world’s most dangerous regimes cannot obtain and use the most dangerous weaponsLikewise the Republican Jewish Committee has sent out an “action alert” email that argued “There is much debate and discussion as to the merits of various strategies going forward as well as how the US got to this juncture However for Congress there is only one question that must be answered: Is it in our national interest to respond to the violation by Syria of the international norm against the use of chemical weapons” It called on pro-Israel Americans to overlook party affiliation (“The RJC believes that this not a Republican or Democrat issue We encouraged our members to reach out in a bipartisan fashion to Republican and Democrat officials to ask for their support of the resolution”) This is simply unprecedented for the RJC which is a Republican group exceptionally critical of President Obama to go to bat for him in this fashionWhat is going on here I spoke to a representative of a pro-Israel group who was authorized only to speak on background “There are two issues the moral dimension on a mass scale and the direct link to Iran” he said “Syria is a puppet for Iran They will conclude that if cannot in the case of WMD’s being used then we won’t ever act to prevent the obtaining of WMD’s” He stressed “We have no other option” If the Congress votes “no” he fears the US will be like Great Britain –irrelevant and powerlessIn short as much as observers bemoan how we got to where we are and the disagreeable choices in Syria this is not about Syria for pro-Israel groups “Assad and Syria are franchise of Tehran ” he said “You cannot be against this if you are concerned about Iran”The pro-Israeli official believes in the end Democrats will not abandon their president and essentially ruin his presidency (“His presidency is at stake”)Republicans he cautioned should remember an authorization for use of force has never been defeated and it should not happen on the GOP’s watch as it were He praised the House leadership’s action today and warned that if Republicans defeated the resolution it would haunt the country and the partyI was to be honest surprised at the intensity of the concern expressed From this I can only conclude that the White House is at real risk of losing this vote and that there is consensus in the mostly-Democratic pro-Israel community that the Syria vote and Iran are inextricably linked If so a “no” vote would be catastrophicThe question for Republicans is how to move beyond their disdain for Obama and use their voice and leverage to push for a viable foreign policy that for once has bipartisan support For the first time in my memory, $40)A thought-provoking and detailed exploration of photographys connection to the real world by the Academy Ward-winning filmmaker. kind and petulant, plus a few more on the tented-and-heated sidewalk patio.
