I would love to watch it, but cricket broadcasting is terrible in the US. A couple of years ago, I would try to watch every Big Bash League (Aussie T20) match they had on the basic cable channel, despite the odd timeslot (overnight here).

It's more of a geographic thing: the only team with some success in America.

Team Canada is not very promising, not until the World Cup is played on snow, and then we'll shine.

Not in snow , if we play cricket in snow , we will lose for sure . But most importantly there will riot in India for losing the World Cup .

Cricket is worshipped here .
Especially if u lose to Pakistan, damn don’t even mention that ......( will be disastrous here )

There is no clear analogy in North American sports for the rivalry between India and Pakistan. We don't have rivalries here that have quite the same religious component as that one. US–Mexico in soccer is no match for India–Pakistan in cricket.

I'm not sure there is a clear analogy anywhere in the world. Maybe a USA v USSR ice hockey game back then?

I was born after the breakup of the Soviet Union, but my understanding is that the Miracle on Ice was a major moment in American history. People still swear they saw it live (it was aired on tape-delay in the US, despite taking place in Lake Placid, New York).
