It was 60-40 to football until 1992. Cricket picked up big time in the sub continent after Pakistan won the '92 World Cup and Zimbabwe gained test status with everyone believing we now had a realistic chance of playing in the World Cup proper! I would say it reached its peak when we won the ICC Trophy in '97. Football died in Bangladesh once the likes of Shabbir and Kaiser Hamid retired - who were Asian class.
