Cricket is all about the British Commonwealth ghetto and will never catch on in the US beyond the Desi community. In fact, I see it catching on more in China if it becomes an Olympic sport before it becomes a part of the popular physical culture in the US of A. Minor sports likely to be more popular than cricket in the US forever:
1. Women and Men's Soccer.
3. Roller Hockey.
4. Arena Football.
5. The trampoline basketball thang.
6. Water Polo.
7. Beach Volleyball.
8. Ultimate Frisbee.
9. Women's Softball.
10. Roller Derby.
11. Bowling (some call this game a sport).
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
