Cricket should be the National Game of India

Cricket should be the National Game of India


IPL has started and along with it the people have changed their work schedules to watch the IPL matches. Cricket fever is one people’s mind and it is not for the first time. Indians are die hard fan of cricket. Whenever there is a series, they forget all their tasks just to watch cricket. Does this means that Cricket should be the national game of India?

Yes

• Change is the law of nature. If it is what the local citizens of India demands, then the change should be welcomed.

• People feel much more connected with the cricket and find it more entertaining than hockey.

• If you look for overall craze of Indian citizens for any sport then it is for cricket only. Cricketers are treated like God in Indian.

• People often blame that government don’t make any efforts to encourage other supports. But if the local people don’t support it then no efforts are useful.

• Cricketers are rich and famous, and pay a large sum of money in taxes. It all comes from the game of cricket.

No

• If cricket is made as national game of India then it will directly discourage the inclination towards other game.

• It will greatly hurt the sentiments of the hockey players. It will give a wrong message to the other sports too.

• Future can never be known by anyone. Today cricket is famous but if tomorrow some other sport will be famous then again people can demand to change the national game.

• It is the media, government and people who are responsible to make other games popular. It is not that hockey and football have no fans, they do have, but there is no proper source to encourage the other games.

• Cricket is the national game of England. So in one way are we making ourselves the complete slaves of British culture?

Conclusion

If cricket is made the national game of India then there will be no additional benefit that cricket will get. Also, it will not have any impact on the cricket fans. But definitely making cricket as a national game will attract a lot of criticism from many other areas. It will give a wrong message to the youngsters and will hurt the spirit of game. Therefore, it makes no sense in making Cricket as our national game.

  • Hockey had been tagged as the National Game of India due to its appealing performance for years, attracting a lot many fans and followers for the sport. This game had lived the era of fame and the players have enjoyed much fame throughout. Though it has lost its popularity today, still we have people today welcoming the sport with great spirit.

    If we opt to change the National sport as per the majority interest and the number of the followers for the game, then this amendment will carry on endlessly. We understand Cricket to the most popular game today in India, IPL adding the charm to it. Still we cannot predict the same level of zeal and enthusiasm among the masses after few decades. Then the shift of interest would call up for another amendment.

    National game carries some historic importance and we definitely had a glorious performance history for the Hockey in comparison to the rest of the world. It is still doubtful in case of cricket, with regard to our performance level in comparison to the rest of the world, whether we have placed our milestone anywhere near to the leading point in world of Cricket.

    Looking at our status in the international tournament, we definitely have our never ending charm for hockey, which we lack for the Cricket. Hence, it is be apt to have Hockey as the National Game.
