English ruled us. they made this game popular here. it is easy to play. comparatively cheaper. it can be viewed by thousands of people in stadium & crores out of the court unlike some other sports. also, the game itself is catchy unlike golf, polo, fencing, yauchting which cannot attract common man.

We are giving other sports a back seat. If the viewership of cricket is decreased, it will automatically go to the back seat but we dont want to do it
