They already wanna cut down on the duration of baseball games. For it to spread, they have to do what soccer and lacrosse is doing: get the game in the schools.

And possibly make a stadium in the greater metropolitan region (BosNyWash Megapolis).

Stage international games every summer. I wouldn't mind going.

But it all sounds like a pipe-dream at this time,.

The Philadelphian cricket team, shown here on an 1884 tour of England, were the premier American cricket team for several decades after the US Civil War

The Belmont Cricket Club team of 1905, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


The Belmont Cricket Club was a casualty of cricket's decline in Philadelphia. It was disbanded in 1914.

American-born Test Cricketers
Although the United States is only an associate member of the ICC and has never played a Test match, two Test cricketers have been born in the USA. Ken Weekes was born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1912 and played in two of the Tests on the West Indies' tour of England in 1939. Weekes scored 137 at The Oval in the last Test match before the Second World War. Weekes eventually returned to the United States from Jamaica, and died in Brooklyn in 1998.[51]

Later, the Washington-born Jehan Mubarak became an international Test player. He has played 8 Tests and 20 One Day Internationals for Sri Lanka.

A Very Critical Piece in the History of Cricket

Quote:
The Canadian cricket team in the United States in 1844 was both the first official international cricket match and the first official international game of any sport. The match between the two national teams was billed as "United States of America versus the British Empire's Canadian Province".[1] The match took place between 24 and 26 September 1844 at the St George's Cricket Club's ground at what is now 30th Street and Broadway (then Bloomingdales) in Manhattan.

Canada won by 23 runs. The game was watched by between 10,000 and 20,000 spectators and around $120,000 worth of bets were placed.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadi...States_in_1844




International cricket begins. The first ever international cricket game was between the USA and Canada in 1844. The match was played at the grounds of the St George's Cricket Club in New York.

When NCAA has cricket, it's over for all other nations. It would be the greatest cricket domestic league in the world, better than Ranji Trophy, better than County Cricket.

Cricket in the USA will never ever happen. I can guarantee it. Baseball is part of the cultural fabric of the sport, and even then some are questioning how to shorten the 3 hour game time.

Cricket's only avenue for growth is to follow the subcontinent template. Zero in on third world countries with very little sporting success and global influence, where cricket can act as a vehicle through which the country's population can unleash their nationalism.

Instead of western countries, the focus should be South East Asia. Thailand, Myanmar, Indonesia, Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia, Philippines. These are emerging countries with very little sports success. One "World Cup" participation would be enough to get the population excited about the sport.
