Nearly, 90% of Indians think CRICKET is dangerous for India. But I don't think so. They think our national sports Hockey is being overshadowed by Cricket. But I want to say, there is no national sports in India. So, we are free to choose any sports. Cricket also promotes employment to many people, not just cricket players, but also many staffs. So, I don't think Cricket is dangerous for India.
What do you say about this?

I'm sorry but get better at grammar. India has no problem with crickets, I haven't heard any complaints about noise at night or crop damage. If your talking about the sport, doesn't India have bigger problems? Like hunger or that whole caste system thing.

My counter part,
It is not the matter of grammar. I know there are mistakes. But this was a debate topic given in our institution. So, I wanted to know about the people's view. Also, I am new to debate.org. So, I think U understand. and please specify why is it dangerous.

Most Indians watch cricket over football (soccer) so it is therefore, a threat to the popularity of other Indian sports.

But they don't lose their life by watching cricket.
But while watching football, they lose their lives.
This is a fact, you can check the news.

I don't feel at all that Cricket is dangerous for India. It's a gentleman sport which supports team spirit and enthusiasm. It's a passion for numerous Indians. Except for the fact that some players are mentally weak and indulge into scams and corruption, which definitely weakens the quality and nature of the sport. But ,anyways Cricket is like a religion for the people of India and brings various people together from different castes and backgrounds.
So, I even request all of you to support the amazing sport of Cricket !

Scrumptious crickets are always a plus for any country with hunger.
