Country cricket popularity back?


Cricket is a popular sport and maybe even on the way to be the most popular one with its rising popularity of players and new tournaments emerging to give the sport a boost in its popularity.

Cricket fans from around the world tuned in to watch the Bulls Masters Country Challenge in Bundaberg, hitting new records for the Queensland regional competition. Bulls Masters media manager Matt Hogan said the community support had been amazing with lots of people turning out to watch the games and record numbers viewing the games online. He deemed the challenge of great success. Before the finals took place, Matt said 21,000 people had tuned in to watch the live stream, up 1000 from last year, and he expected viewer numbers to reach 30,000 during the decider. “We have had a lot of interest with people locally and internationally watching the game,” he said. Matt said the Bulls Masters Country Challenge was just the start of great things to come for the Bundaberg Region in the way of cricket.

“Cricket has become fairly focused in Bundaberg in the last couple of years, now it’s entrenched in the community,” he said. With the rise in country cricket popularity, we sure know that the commercial cricket tournaments are only aiding the growth of the sport and thus reviving the conventional cricket. Soon cricket will become a bigger phenomenon than it is today and maybe even leave football behind in this race of the most famous sport. Let’s see where the sport goes from here.
