« on: March 02, 2009, 03:32:05 PM »
There is an interesting post http://ibuzz.nitinh.com/2009/02/cricket/ban-cricket-in-india-for-next-10-year/.

What is your stand on it? Should cricket be banned?

I somewhat agree with the author.

Here: This will save a click or two for members.
http://ibuzz.nitinh.com/2009/02/cricket/ban-cricket-in-india-for-next-10-year/

I am writing this post after a disastrous performance of indian cricket team at wellington(NewZealand) in 2nd T20 Match. So i may be a little biased, but overall if you think, you will find these reason/points genuine.

Cricket has became a religion in India, its reach is very deep rooted in our lives.
So here we.

A lot of time is wasted in watching live cricket.
Some Electricity can also be saved if cricket is banned.
On a average cricketing day, highest traffic query on google trends is around cricket match. So banning cricket will save a lot of bandwidth.
If India wins than an average indian wastes about 1hr in discussing that match
If India looses we(atleast me) feel very low, like i have lost a lot. This results in hampered productivity
These reasons are more like personal, on a larger front cricket is simply eating other sports. Somewhere cricket is also responsible for our bad performance in other sports. For gods sake just one individual gold in olympics.
With cricket only large companies are getting profit, not a average indian. So, for a INDIAs betterment please ban cricket for atleast next 10 yrs
May be i am not fully correct, but indian team deserves such article after such a bad performance..Do write your comments.

you said it. *****!
the poster does not understand the secondary and tertiary positive effects that cricket has on the economy. electricity consumption is a good thing. and as far as him feeling low goes, dude ever heard of xanax? that too will help the economy as yo BUY it. and for large companies growing rich, doesnt it mean that they employ MORE people?? this is such a retarded argument I cannot believe i am partaking in it. guess I am retarded too.

Ps India won one gold medal and cricket is to blame how? I for one am not terribly excited about going and watching rifle shooting. make it exciting and people will go watch and then the money wil come in.

I think the title and the conclusion of this article is wrong. A real good debate could have been on : What are the positive and negative aspects of the popularity of Cricket in India : On Economy, on the development of other sports, on overall past-time of people, on the youth etc,etc).

lay off guys..rishabsharma has a good point but probably the reasons cited are not correct.

my chief complaint with cricket is that it is not athletic. Indians will be much better served by a sport like football..it is more athletic and will help in fitter young blokes if it is as popular as cricket.

India's traditional sports like kabbaddi,hocket, koko, wrestling are all much better for mind and body compared to cricket.

as for banning cricket, well we all know it is not practical and nobody can do it in India, not even a military dictator..so chill and hope that eventually cricket fades a bit and concedes space to more athletic sports in India, ours is a young nation, we need to have fit, strong and well built young people ( both mentally and physically).

Why would cricket suffer because other sports can't evolve themselves in country ?
As per athleticism, Please try bowling fast for 10 overs with one over break and give everything in every ball. Try playing an innigns of 50 + runs Where you can hit sixes and sprint running between wickets at the same time.Being a fileder, Make sure to take start on every ball and follow(run) towards ball direction.
One can be an Aalu or Bhalu within the limtations of sport.Yes the required agility is not of basketball. But
every sport has its own merits. The traditional sports has its limitations how far you an excel in them.

exactly. The how many games go on for 7-8 hours a day?

I have played soccer in my time too ... and despite the quick bursts needed .... the energy and fitness needed in a cricket game (played properly) cant be matched.

If you are a lazy bum who just wants to stay in the slips then yes you may not find enough exercise ... but if you play hard and walk in with the bowler and bowl 6-10 overs a game or as our friend 12th man says ... score a 50 ... u know you have worked hard.

Yes, I agree. Physical excercise is not the issue. The key question I always have - despite being a great fan of Cricket - is how can the rural and the poor people practice the game, the real game that is and not rbber ball and a wooden stick. Football is not the same. Any street kid or a village boy can practice with a ball just as kids in the US can practice with a Basket ball.

AGREED this is athleticism for sure..my point was not that athleticism is totally absent in cricket but how much? how many cricketers really bowl fast and of them how many really bowl 10 overs at a stretch?

:)sorry you are confusing physical activity with athleticism

 :)sorry again but you are confusing physical activity with athleticism

as you said, every sport has its own merits, but my point was, from the POV of physical athleticism, others sports including india's traditional sports serve our young better compared to 7-8 lazy boys standing around on cricket field mostly while the batsman and bowlers go at each other. if you disagree, you will have to come at me with more than lil examples of athleticism in cricket because that is not my main point..my point was in comparative terms .

Flute, Vincent:

It is fine if you guys prefer football (a game I also enjoyed playing myself). It is also fine (in fact I think it would be very much appreciated by most cricket loving folks) if you guys want to promote these sports and make them as popular as cricket. But saying that cricket should be banned for any of this is ridiculous. I am sure you did not want to say this, but if you look at the context in the thread, it almost sounds that way.

Also, do notice that the banning of cricket was due to the defeats in 2 2020s in NZ  :o :o

while a debate is not aboue winning or losing, changing ones view is not losing, mind you.

a debate can also be used to modify or adjust ones views based on new analysis..it surely is not losing if one modifies his/her opinion..not indulging in long posts can also be because of mental laziness and inability to clearly articulate one's view point. Now, I am not saying these apply to you, but simply putting the possibilities on the table  :)

as for throwing di*t, maaan you are so proper, do not even want to spell out dirt completely..I guess you are the european sort who doesn't mind carrying dirt
handkerchief in the pocket, while I am the indian type who hates those handkerchiefs and doesn't mind pointing out the unclean ways of handkerchiefs ( some people think pointing that out is actually thorwing dirty handkerchiefs) :)

I hope this post is long enough  ???

;D Look at the part of my post with bold fonts.

I have nothing for or against the points you want to make ... if they are to promote other games. I am just saying that it is a different topic, and should not  start by saying

Did you just call RD names?  ;D

On unrelated note, isn't sport a personal choice? Why everyone should follow or not one sport or other. If you like soccer follow it, if you don't, follow whatever you like. What is this about banning a sport?

And those who want to ban cricket should be compared to Muthalik and Renuka aunty should call it Talibanisation of India.  ::Whip::  ::Whip::

If cricket has become a religion and therefore needs to be banned, what about actual religions. Cricket is far less destructive than most religions, even when Sehwag is in full flow.

Lack of productivity when India loses  ;D ?

Shouldn't it work the other way though? Once the team consistently loses, The interest in watching games dissipates and one produces more(what ? ).  ;D
