Default Will it be just deshis playing cricket in the future?

http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc-unde...ry/576439.html

Australia's star performer? Deshi
Scotlands? Deshi
South Africa's last over match turner? Deshi
New Zealand's leading bowler of the day? Deshi
England's 2nd best bowler? Deshi
Windies centurion? Half-Deshi

And of course you have India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Pakistan which are full deshi.

If U-19 are the future, are we at the cusp of cricket being marginalized as a sport played by people of South Asian ancestry?

to be honest ive gotta disagree with you. The people you are talking about are only a MINORITY.

Dale steyn, mokkel, cook, smith, ABCD, are these deshis? what about warner watson KP lee andersen broad, the list is endless.

Whatever you might say I think that an ASIA XI is still weaker than a NON-ASIAN XI.

No that won't be the case. England, Australia and South Africa will still be fielding white-majority teams with one or two SC descent players in the foreseeable future.

Since test cricket is real cricket, there yes, there will be no cricket in the future because Tests will die. And at the same time LOIs will dominate

I prefer not to group ourselves in 'deshis'; like to ID myself 'Bangali' better. I found 'desi' meaning more often as an Indians and less/none for others that op listed.

I beleive no bangali would ever choose other test nation over Bangladesh to play cricket. The amount of pride, passion, love, enthusiasm our fans share for their cricketers, you cant refuse/skip it. Whereas you will be allways called a 'deshi' in those squads as if a foreign eliment among those native players.

btw I guess using Black/Half-black or simple Indians would be more sensable use in the op.

How are you 'foreign', If you were born and raised in that country?

'Native' players? Oh please there is no such thing as native players nowadays. Players with all different kinds of roots play for other countries, as long as you qualify. How many of you know that Australian T20 captain George Bailey played for scotland? KP, Trott, Kieswetter, Eoin Morgan the list goes on and on. Are they 'native' as oppose to say Bopara because they are white and he is not?

cricheart you need to see more of the world I used deshis because like it or not, non-brown people tend to lump us together into one group.

Didn't know about George Bailey

I believe so. cricket is not the number one sport of any non-deshi country. We are stuck with cricket because we suck in every other sport due to lack of fitness.

I know alot of Asian friends who play cricket and are good at it as well. It might not sound believable to some people but alot of asians embrace cricket in Australia.

Cricket is the most popular sport in Australia and in the WI. In NZ, SA, England cricket is one of the most popular sports. So I dont see why Asians will dominate the sport.

We have seen dominance of non-Asian team in the past, we are seeing it in the present. And I dont see how things will change drastically in the future

I think neither for Australia nor for the West Indies is cricket the most popular sport.

Consider attendance stats for Australia. Cricket is #6 with 1/4 of the attendance for Aussie rules.

And in the West Indies, basketball has long surpassed cricket.

That's right. Cricket is way behind of Footy and NRL. Young generation don't like cricket. Cricket is only popular among deshis in Aus and older people (pensioners) And yes, when i said popular, its only when Australia play against Pommies (Yes, only Ashes matters for Aussies, for rest, they don't care)

This is my personal experience. Other may have other experiences.

Yup cricket is not that much popular in Australia but I think after the advent of T20. More people will come to watch cricket.
