Hockey is no where near cricket now. Only thing that keeps hockey afloat is the label that it is our national game.

Hockey is a better game than cricket. What with personal records and agrandisement allowed in cricket, people (specially Indians) tend to play cricket like a self promoting exercise. Hockey is a team sport in the real sense and 'personal' records if any, lie in number of goals one scores which is ultimately depends on good passes and dribbling. Besides where as cricket consumes the whole day and even five whole days, hockey is a 90 minute sport extended for not more than half an hour if at all required to do so. Cricket is popular in India because of media hype which leads to ads and ultimately huge sums of money get involved. One can never be sure whether a particular match is not fixed! Cricket is a business and NOT a sport any more.
Besides, cricket is played in a handful of countries. Hockey has a world wide representation, thus involves more people on the ground.
