Cricket is an open irritation when played out in the open. It isn't reasonable for a horribly populated nation like india. I despise cricket. I lament my past, shen I cherished or played this present *****'s criminals' game. I never watch or read things about criket. I will never do it in my life ever.

I don't what number of individuals watch cricket outside the Indian subcontinent. Around 90% of the world don't have a clue about what's cricket is that a game or a creepy crawly? On the off chance that football is an immense goliath, at that point cricket alongside football will resemble a little feline. What's more, in the event that you leave India, at that point cricket will resemble a small scale living being close to soccer. I state you a few games stars outside Indian subcontinent won't realize any Indian cricket stars. So it's declining in India as well. It is smarter to have a game the most famous in a nation which the entire world preferences like football. In the event that once India comes in top 30 in football rankings. Cricket isn't in Olympics, and in the event that India once get in Olympics to play football, at that point cricket will end there as it were. At that point a short time later India will be alluded as a football insane nation. The day isn't excessively far.

Yes it is. Here's why :
There's just too much cricket these days. In the early 2000s, when cricket was an appetite, there used to be 3–4 series a year and a World Cup every 4 years. However, now, there's a whole new format of the game - T20. IPL every year, champions trophy, Asia cup, World cup in two formats, and then the regular series. This makes it very ordinary and easy to get.

Retirement of Sachin Tendulkar. A lot of people in India started watching cricket because of the consistency and the class of Sachin Tendulkar. His retirement was immediately followed by the decline in cricket followers.

The Fab 5. With the taste of Sachin, people also loved Virendra Sehwag, VVS Laxman, Rahul Dravid, Saurav Ganguly. These were some really good players. You could visualize them as the Pandavs, keeping Indian’s back in every battle. They all had different playing styles, different shots and everyone had a specific role in the team. Retirement of these players is another big reason.

Yeah surely. I am a 90’s kid and was used to watch each ball of an ODI and pray for India to win . But now i don’t even follow cricket news .I think the major reasons are
High scoring matches .Cricket moved to dead pitches , smaller boundaries , rules bent in favored of batsman resulting in pure domination of batsmen . Score of 300 became normal and were easily chased by teams . Every score became reachable .Things became predictable .This led to loss of interest in matches .

Decline of teams like Australia . Now its like only India is playing cricket ,other countries have stopped producing quality cricketers . Competitive cricket is on decline .

Lack of good bowlers . Now we don’t see charismatic bowlers like shane warne , Shaun pollack , Mcgrath ,shoiab akhtar .It was exciting to watch them bowl .

Well, As we do see crowd for cricket fans in India then we cant say its losing its popularity but who knows about future.

Even 20-20 made it more popular and its bad impact got on test cricket as there are only few lovers on compare of odi and t20.....
