    How should India and BCCI help to GLOBALIZE CRICKET ?

    Cricket is a game that needs globalization.

    Cricket is played and followed very seriously in just 9 Nations.


    How can India help to take this number to 30 say in the next four years before the 2015 WORLD CUP ????

    These are my suggestions.

    1.Gather funds of around $500 million (Its nothing to them after the 3 IPLs).

    2.Select the 20 countries to help(continent wise) :

    My list is :

    Holland
    Scotland
    Ireland
    Denmark
    Belgium
    Israel

    Namibia
    Kenya
    Zimbabwe
    Uganda

    Argentina
    Chile
    Belize

    Canada
    USA

    China
    Honk Kong
    Malaysia
    Afghanistan
    Kuwait

    Papua New Guinea


    List may change according to needs.

    I have selected these nations as they already have quite good teams and cricket history and development is more feasible bcoz of large area & population(esp.China,Canada,USA & Argentina)

    3.Set up a cricket league in these countries.

    A league for each format
    1.FC
    2.Pro40
    3.T20


    with 6 proper clubs and full time contracted players.

    It will require funds of around $20 million $1 million each nation may vary on profit basis.

    Funds will be used to give the players full time contracts and marketing the leagues and help get franchise owners for the clubs.

    4.Set up a few international competitions like WORLD SERIES for their national teams.

    Funds around $15 million for WORLD SERIES.

    5.Recruit a few talented players in IPL teams.

    This will help to make cricket popular in these nations and encourage the youth.

    6.Help these nations to build proper infrastructure and coaching facilities.

    Funds around $300 million will be kept for this.

    7.Give their players exposure by letting a few of our players play in their domestic leagues.

    And also regular exposure at international level.



    After these 7 steps are implemented we can have ICC WORLD CUP 2015 with 24-30 teams.

    Traffic clearly an issue in this country...

    This whole "spreading the game" idea does some familiar, I wonder where I've read it before.

    Oh come on Teja, cricket's a game in dying need of globalisation, it would be selfish for India to, gasp, spend that money on its own players and the development of its cricket.

    You're exactly right. It would be far better to be placed, say third in the world, out of those 30 countries competing at the 2015 World Cup. You beat 27 teams, not just 8. Excellent logic.
