Based on the number of fans, cricket is the second most popular sport in the world, trailing only soccer. Basketball is third, with hockey (ice and field) and tennis rounding out the top 5. Baseball is nine. American football doesn't even crack the top 10.While there is not so much interest in sumo (I happen to love it) around here. Although there do seem to be quite a lot of people in training to get bulked up !
But you might be surprised at how much interest there is in Cricket in the Richmond area.
Its wildly popular in southern asia and the west indies and South Africa. Quite a lot of those folks came here for Y2K.
