More Cricket Countries
Cricket is undoubtedly one of the most popular sports, all across the entire world, with popularity that may only be rivalled world wide by that of soccer. The following countries largely dominate the 'world' of Cricket, and tend to beat up on other countries they may play.
In South Africa, considered the leading cricket nation of the world, cricket is considered the second most popular sport. South Africa has three major domestic competitions, including the SuperSport Series, the MTN Domestic Championship and the Standard Bank Pro 20 Series. South Africa's national cricket team is known as the Proteas, and are widely considered to be chokers, while having fantastic records and being winners, never being able to win a cricket World Cup.
Finally we have Pakistan, whose country wasn't created until 1947, but had seen cricket played there long before with the first international match having been played in what would become Karachi, Pakistan in 1935. Of the many domestic tournaments in Pakistan, the most important are the Pentangular Trophy, the National One-Day Championship, and the Faysal Bank T20 cup. On the international stage Pakistan has won the World Cup and been runner up, so they've had their fair share of success. So despite field hockey being their national sport, cricket is by far their most popular sport!
Now you now know a little bit more about some the very best teams across the world playing the game of cricket!
