So ... cricket?

Still no automatic for the average Yank.

The history between the two countries, in sport and otherwise, is the reason I never say  "Excuse me...are you Indian or Pakistani?"  It is much better to express interest in their country of origin and ask them to teach you how to say "Thank you" in their native tongue.

P.S.  If they speak Urdu...it's Shu-kree-ah...thereabouts.

All I hear "crickets".    Not even a blip on the radar in the US.    Sorry but it's not very popular, at least compared to other sports.

Cricket is only big in Britain and former British colonies.  Nobody else has really taken to or understood the game.  Yes, the India-Pakistan match is big, and in the current political climate, it will be a war/prestige thing in all but name.

For me India will probably win it, just because they have been the better team off late, and are one of the favourites to win the World Cup itself.

There is a huge cricket grounds going up just northwest of Houston. 86 acres, 10 to 12 fields supposedly. Hard to believe there is that much demand, even in a city with such a diverse population.

Interesting.  I wonder if it will genuinely be profitable without attracting some level of international matches there to help subsidise the cost.  Otherwise, it will most likely be a vanity project for somebody who has made money and can afford to build/invest in this.

Looking forward the world cup
