Cricket is a gentlemen game than why women's cricket?

So the least anticipated women cricket starts today with India taking on West Indies at Brabourne Stadium where Sehwag made a majestic 292 against Sri lanka which helped India rose to pinnacle of Test cricket. As I have said there is a saying that cricket is a gentlemen game but still we have women cricket. All round the globe this is the game that arouse no excitement. See women's tennis creates so much noise, women's badminton creates all brouhaha and even women's hockey takes pride of place but cricket, no where close to men's cricket. Hello my lotters till when you agree with the above statement? When women themselves are not interested in seeing cricket women's cricket will fall to grab any eyeball. Cheers and happy mylotting

Except tennis, no other sports is famous for women. The energy, the magic and style is missing from women's cricket. I don't think that women's cricket is going to grab some eyeballs in near future. When girls themselves are not interested in seeing their match, why men will show interest? Cheers and happy mylotting.

It can, but LFL is new. It's too early to say about it's success. Apart from glamor, other things are too important in sports. If those things are there, than only that sport will be famous. Tennis has all those things and that's why it's so famous for the last 50 years. Cheers and happy mylotting

Well you should think again. Have you heard of LFL. Its called Lingerie Football League and is new in the Calender and is fast catching other sports. I think once you watch that game you will reconsider tennis to LFL. Its fast growing and interesting to watch babes.

Thanks a ton for sharing this discussion. Yes u are absolutely right, women's cricket also deserves equal attention like men so that many talented players can come up. it was disappointing to see how the stands were empty today and that speaks about the viewership of women's cricket. It is high time that we all give due respect to women's cricket as well. What say?

Hi anilhclites, I fully agree with you that the every other sport and players should be equally respected. The all are playing for country's pride. However, it is not specifically neccessary to stop watching men's cricket, it is about "also" following other sports with equal interest.

That's the problem. I have tried to watch hockey but didn't find it interesting. Like me there may be many others, so I thought how hockey will get crowds. Hockey team has to perform well in international arena, than only people would watch hockey. If some Indian male or female wins men's/women's single tennis grand slam tournament, tennis would be watched with great interest. Results have to come first, than public will follow. The same thing has happened to cricket. India won a world cup in 1983, from there people have started watching cricket. Cheers and happy my lotting.
