It's a predominantly girls sport, specially in places where they have actual hockey. But that's besides the point. Point is, Cricket IS India's game. Indians love to think so too.
You sound like you've been here for a long time, my friend. Is that how you conclude if a certain sport is girly or not?

True though, we are very passionate about cricket, which is also evident with the support Indian team enjoys wherever they go but it also depends on the city. Like in Bombay, its CRICKET everywhere barely any other sport played, I know because I was raised there but in Calcutta its a healthy mix of Football & Cricket. Chandigarh is actually pretty big on field hockey but overall agreed Cricket is the rockstar sport back home.
