    This is actually a brilliant move on their part. There is a thriving cricket community in Houston thanks to our huge number of South Asian immigrants. This will likely bring them a ton of revenue as they are filling a much needed void.

    Prairie View, TX not Prairie View A&M.

    It is 50 miles from downtown, and most South Asian (Pakistani and Indian) Houstonians live on the west side, so it is even shorter for them. People commute all over Houston for sports complexes, if you play major outdoor sports, it is pretty common in Houston. The complexes are so large, they have to be in the suburbs to cut costs.

    Mixed feelings about this. I'm all for diversity, but America should be about baseball, hot dog eating contests and players respecting our troops. These things are what make America great.

    Don't forget apple pie, seed spitting contests, and cracker jacks.


    Kids these days are just a bunch of pansies. Rub some dirt on it and move on.

    Cricket? GTFO of here, this is baseball country... assimilate or go back to your caste system country.

    Not looking forward to the stories on Fox News by Hannity concerned about saving our culture.

    Don’t the matches last like 5 days? That’s a lot of driving to BFE
