Cricket is suppressing other sports as people are creating a lot of useless hype about the game.Which is affecting the others sports as well as the cricketer's performance.The cricketers are being pressurised for no rime or reason.Whenever there is a cricket match lets say the twenty20 final which happened recently...there were hardly any people on the roads.people took a leave from offices,children from their classes.Why?to watch the final.don't u think that's a bit too much.i mean..its fine if u give cricket importance but not so much that it becomes a matter of life n death for the cricketers.Besides,Indian team wins a cricket match and the whole of India comes to know about it.But if an Indian team wins a Football or Hockey match no one will even come to know about it..There are so many such incidents that have occur ed.But there's one good side to it.Filmmakers have identified this problem and a bringing different games in the limelight...Hope there will be some improvement in the mind set of the people.


I know cricket isnt as popular as basketball or baseball but still doesn't everyone act this way about sports.
