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).
"O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant." (49:13)
