The United States of America is the joint host of ICC T20 World Cup this year. While baseball traditionally has been among the most popular sports in the US, cricket is fast catching up. With the launch of Major League Cricket and the inclusion of Cricket in the Los Angeles 2028 Olympics, we're seeing a new generation in USA pick up the bat and ball.

To celebrate the first major world cricket championship hosted by the US, the Consulate General of India in New York has commissioned a very interesting animation video highlighting intriguing similarities between cricket and baseball.

The video can be accessed here:

This video, besides celebrating the historic moment in cricket’s global expansion, aims to quench the curiosity among Americans about the “Gentleman’s Game.”

Cricket is poised to become a major player in the American sporting landscape. 

Team India starts its campaign at the newly built Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York, facing Ireland (June 5), Pakistan (June 9), and the USA (June 12).

Let's get ready for some wickets, boundaries, and sixes in the USA!
