Star-Telegram: Could Cricket Come to Texas?

“It would be one game, to introduce it to the United States,” [Texas Secretary of State Carlos] Cascos told a crowd of hundreds gathered for a Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce luncheon Tuesday at the Petroleum Club.

The game would take as long as two years to plan, Cascos said, but if it does happen, it could draw more viewers than a Super Bowl traditionally does.

“It opens up a whole new market,” Cascos said during the chamber’s Leaders in Government Series. “We could have billions of people watching this match coming out of Texas.”

Billions of people to watch a friendly one-day international cricket match!  Yes, I mean, probably not … I also like the impression that this would be the first time cricket has ever been played in Texas … there’s weekly intramural cricket a couple of blocks from my house, and our university is in the process of building a regulation pitch.  But what the heck, I’d probably try to get tickets for India vs. Pakistan at the Cotton Bowl.
