    SPORTS-crazy Americans are being bowled over by the fastest-growing game in New York — CRICKET.

    Baseball gloves are being swapped for pads as city sports chiefs launch a youth league with a dozen teams.

    Interest soared after the opening of a 17-acre state-of-the-art cricket centre in Spring Creek Park, Brooklyn.

    The area is traditionally a breeding ground for basketball, American football and baseball.

    A second pitch overlooking the famous Manhattan skyline is already being built.

    Parks boss Julius Spiegel said the craze is being fuelled by Asian and Caribbean immigrants. He added: “Cricket is the fastest-growing sport in Brooklyn.”

    Yepp its about time and its a classy game. The rules shouldnt be too hard for them to understand either:

    Every now and then you stop the game for a chat, a cup of tea, change tactics etc.
    One team throws a hard ball at the other team member who has to hit it as hard as possible to run and score points.
    The umpire is actualy listened to and is GOD&#33;

    So simple even the yanks should be able to master it

    And it still hasn&#39;t taken off in the states.
    Cricket will interest those who like golf but not much more than that.
    A guy that likes and plays American football or basketball will never catch on to cricket. It&#39;s not a "sporty" game. We might play it like we play miniature golf.
