    Icon5 Can Cricket Overtake Football?

    After the start of IPL, pakistan announcing their version of premier league to start next year & England on plans of EPL... With T20 gaining huge markets & popularity. Do u think cricket has enough power to overtake football in future?

    Only in one country is cricket less popular than football (that's football as in soccer), and it is never remotely likely to overtake it in popularity for more than a few months in this country.

    For it to do so would take something unforeseeable.

    I don't think it does, unfortunately.

    Depends in what sense to 'overtake'. In terms of sheer number of people it's possible if it happened to take off in China, but in a more general sense I can't see it happening.

    Yep

    As for the poll, no chance. Even if the World Health Organisation proved a link between following football and testicular cancer there would still be far more people interested in it.

    Football is so simple and accessable.
