After India wining1983 worldcup more audience were attracted towards crickets, from these on cricket become popular sport in India. If other sportsman would have won more international titles in games such as football, tennis and other, those sports would have been popular in India.

Cricket is probably the second most popular sport in the world after football. With 2.5 billion fans, cricket is one of the most cherished sports among its many fans. Sport is the easiest and probably the best way to manage that energy. Cricket is played in the open air under the open sky of nature. Cricket is a popular sport, it is a ball game. As a result, blood circulation in the body becomes normal. Your post is very important and informative. I hope you will share more articles with us. Thank you.

Cricket is a national obsession to other sports because cricket is deeply rooted in family heritage and also there are more role models in cricket compared to other sports. Moreover, the lack of investment in Oympic sports kills the desire in a child to take up that sport. Parents encourage cricket more than other sports.

Hey guys!

In my point of view, cricket is widely taking place in India compared to other sports because of facilities and amenities provided by the BCCI. India is one of the countries which has more youths compared to other countries but unfortunately, they have been immersing themselves in the cricket. What I suggest is instead of having too much interest in the cricket they should also support other games equivalently and as a youth, it is our responsibility to give attention to other problems that have been facing in India.

India has been performing outstandingly well in cricket from the past 20 years or so. It is the most popular sport in India. Children are madly passionate about it, people are deeply involved in the game, there is a cricket critic in every Indian house. The BCCI has been successful in brilliantly marketing and encouraging the game as well. BCCI is the richest cricket board in the world and the richest sports controlling authority in India. No sports authority has managed their game so well in India as compared to BCCI. We have won 3 World Cups, 2 Champion Trophies and many more prestigious tournaments.

Apart from the raw passion, the money and fame that follows are blinding. Unlike other players of other sports, the cricketers even at the junior levels earn handsomely, which is also a motivating factor that this game ensures financial security provided you play well.

Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a field at the centre of which is a 22-yard (20-metre) pitch with a wicket at each end, each comprising two bails balanced on three stumps. The earliest reference to cricket is in South East England in the mid-16th century. It is a very popular game in the world. In India, whenever a cricket match is there, the people become mad to see that match.

In India, BCCI is the company, which provides Indian players to the matches.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is the governing body for cricket in India. The board was formed in December 1928 as a society, registered under the Tamil Nadu Societies Registration Act. The president of BCCI is Sourav Ganguly.

Hi everyone,

I feel that its a bit of overstatement that, cricket as a national obsession is a detriment to other sports.

We support many other games like tennis, badminton, shooting, etc. These games also have their own sheen and fame. We have sports stars like Sania Mirza, Saina Nehwal, Bopppana, Mahesh Bhupati, Leander Paes, Rajwardhan Singh Rathore, Abhinav Bindra other than our cricketers.

So many sports are also popular in India other than cricket also.

Good morning everyone.

There are different types of sports found in India but as we all know cricket has been the most liked sports for decades. Cricket is deep rooted in Indian hearts and almost more than half the population run after cricket. Cricket is the national obsession in India because the facilities like infrastructure and other amenities provided to cricketers are far more than compared to other sports let it be football kabaddi or even hockey which is our national sport. Cricketers are paid more and are recognized as famous celebrities which is not in the case of other games. I think that the other sports should be equally treated nad respected as every game has its own importance and benefits.

Thankyou.
