The game in itself is nothing spectacular. There are more beautiful sports out there which, in today’s fast paced world, are more entertaining and worth spending money on. But what defines a sport in this case is not just its marketability on a global scale. It is a matter of history. Blame it on the English for colonising the country and introducing the game to us. It would’ve been a different scenario if say, Portugal were to be the master of the Indian subcontinent for hundreds of years.
