    Which International Team Do You Support?

    Similar has been done before and we have looked at CW demographics in the past.

    I thought it may be interesting to see the breakdown of who supports who and in what numbers.

    An early prediction (given the info from site traffic) is that India will be the biggest group and given the origin of the site New Zealand should be disproportionally represented.

    If you support more than 1 team then grow some balls an pick a favourite.

    Since our resident Moderator has deleted the unneccessary thread without moving my post, I'll make it again.

    I've always supported England more than anyone else, and South Africa next, and only exceptionally rarely have I had good reason to question the status-quo. But the gap between second and third is considerably smaller than the gap between first and second. In fact, third and everything below is an ever-changing entity.

    Honourable mentions to England, Zimbabwe and Namibia, but you asked me to pick one

    Why South Africa second, Rich - is it a case of them just having players you particularly liked, or some other affinity?

    England. Then whoever's playing Australia. (With Scotland when they play quite high up too.)
    Or something.

    I would say:
    1. India
    2. England
    3. Sri Lanka
    4. New Zealand
    5. Pakistan
    6. West Indies
    7. South Africa
    8. Australia

    South Africa were the team playing England when I went from liking cricket as a background-ish thing that I loosely followed each summer to really, really liking and following religiously. The date being 1998, of course.

    It may be as simple as that they were the first team other than England who I really noticed the ups and downs of. Or it may be that I just gained affinity with the likes of Allan Donald and Gary Kirsten, then later many others.

    Fair enough mate, figured it would be something to do with the Donald-love.

    TBH I think my love of AAD is independent from SA. I've never, for instance, had any particular remarkable affinity with Sri Lanka (though they have far more often than not been 3rd on my list, for multiple reasons) despite my adoration for one PA de Silva, and I like Aravinda even more than Donald. Donald is merely my 2nd-favourite bowler ever, Aravinda is my favourite batsman bar none.

    I reckon the overwhelming majority of voters will vote consistently for where they were born or at least where their heritage is on this one. It will be very interesting to see who, if anyone, doesn't.

    What could also be interesting is who CWers would support last among international teams. I'd think Australia would surely romp away with that poll.

    1964? Not bad. Think the oldest England fans on here started following around about 1971 (the two Davids).

    Have a guess. No second favourites, I hate everyone else equally. Crush, kill, destroy!
