I think it's obvious when you watch cricket from India or Australia or really anywhere from the sub continents that its really popular there. Yet I'm not sure about South Africa. Some of the crowds in SA that watched the ODI's against Australia looked massive, yet the test crowds were terrible. Pity because SA has some beautiful stadiums.
My question to the South Africans who post here is:
How big is cricket in South Africa? It can't be more popular than Rugby I wouldn't think... or football. Yet is it important etc?
