Q.

Any possibility of cricket spreading to gulf countries, China, etc? If that happen, then will it not threaten Indias present dominant position in this game, as playing as well as controlling country (presently ICC is virtually controlled by India)? Your views?

1) Do not worry. Middle East countries and China are not simply interested in Cricket.
2) They are really wiser people to understand that the Cricket is the lazy game for the lazy people.
3) Despite many years of efforts by some business tycoons in Dubai, the locals have not shown any interest in Cricket.
4) I think that China would rather ban Cricket than encourage it. So far, nobody has shown any interest in this game there. Good for them.

Let us hope that countries like China or Korea or Japan doesn't take up cricket. Look at any sports. Whenever they have taken it up, they have learnt to master it in no time just like they do with duplication of technologies. Let us enjoy our present sun shine. Look at the way countries like Argentina which didn't know what a hockey stick is meant for defeating us within years of their learning the game or even Chinese women hockey, how fast they are catching up.

Gulf cricket ground is used as a neutral venue for other countries to play cricket.This shows that they r interested in cricket.If Afghanistan could ,why can't they.China with their concentration on other athletics ,I do not think any possibility of their team opting for cricket. India will continue to keep its dominance because of huge patronage.
