Pakistan will cease to exist as a country, and cricket will be a near dead sport played inl between India and Bangladesh.

 

Arjun Tendulkar's son will be making his India debut, and Dhoni will still be captain.

Such level of hatred against any country isnt pretty healthy dude

Apart from the Pakistan comment, everything is pretty accurate in your comment.

How popular do you think cricket will be in the world after approximately 30 yrs?

Good thread.

 

By 2050 the population will be obviously more, so broadcasting channels  will have a better target audience to capture. Whoever will tie up with boards for rights will be hugely profitable imo. Zee Entertainment has to make a comeback into sports. Think they lost the plot but they do have the potential to make a strong comeback.

 

Imo it will be T20 ruling the viewership for reasons that working people cannot watch broadcasted ODI and tests. Whereas T20i can be squeezed between 8 to 12 pm. It will be most watched format on television due to this. 

 

Fielding under lights is different ball game, so quality fielders will be distinctly separated from the normal ones.

Test will be finished maybe Aussies/Brits. People will have no time watch old man's cricket and T20 will survive. India if becomes more prosperous will go to football (fingers crossed).

 

It will be prominently an Asian sport. People who think that cricket can spread to US and Canada are the biggest fools I have ever come across.

only club cricket will remain.. IPL might have 2 or 3 tiers with promotion and relegation 

 

probably CSK and MI will end up like the current  real madrid and Barcelona ..

delhi will be still hunting for their matching winning combo .. punjab and rcb will be in and out of relegation zone ..

Rahul's son will be topping Ranji charts only to be ignored by Kohli's son.

 

Rahul will try singing praises of Kohli but still his son wont get selected. He will then try getting angry and channeling his inner Jograj Singh in abusing Kohli but it will only get his poor son banned from cricket. 

 

Meanwhile Ashwin's son would have become a cricket analyst trying to come with mathematical formulas to spin the ball square even on Aussies pattas (much to the exasperation of the fans).

 

Dhoni will be still playing T20 with his daughter in the playing xi. Hey its Dhoni, kuch bhi ho saktha hai. 

 

Pujara will still be trying to crack the overseas code. His son will be like "Dad... Give it up already dude... Jeeez"

 

Pappu will still be pappu showing his son how to drop catches to screw over his team at the most inopportune moments.

 

Shastri will have twin daughters who will go into the profession of surprise surprise... cheerleading... like a tracer bullet. 

 

And last but not the least, Pakistan will still be talking about owning India in CT finals 33 years back.

In 30 years time.....

  • Dhoni will be still playing in the team and he will be still captaining CSK :cantstop:
  • Most of the players will be Muslim since people embrace our culture all over the world. :cantstop:
  • We would have still widen the India vs Pakistan head to head gap in all formats where India can never think of achieving :cantstop:
  • Pakistan would be the no 1 team with all formats with maintaining the gaps of 20 points to the second on the table :cantstop:
  • Pakistan would have bagged lot of trophies in major ICC events. :cantstop:
  • PSL will be the most popular league tournament in the world than big bash. :cantstop:

Cricket will be going downhill in India atleast. Soccer will take its place. 

Keep dreaming, casual footy fans are dime a dozen. Casual cricket fans outnumber them at least 10:1 heck my grandmother and even "domestic help" follow cricket, whenever possible.

Most domestic helps don't follow Cricket in Bengal atleast.
They are too busy in their own life - and the only form of entertainment they consume is daily soaps.
Football is more big among lower and lower middle class nowadays.

IPL expansions had so much problems... I don't think IPL will expand beyond 8 teams.
And the current organizers don't even want to.
CSK vs MI rivalry began more for the cheating and match fixing allegations and power issue rather than regional separatism issue.

By 2025-2030,Cricket will get an olympics spot for 20 overs format.It will get reduced to 10 overs format by 2040.

T20s will become T10s.ODIs will become Half-Day Internationals with 25/20 overs each.Test cricket will have the most reform.

By 2025,tests will be 100 overs innings each played over 4-5 days.This will eliminate snoozefest boring draws.By 2035,it will be 50 overs per innings with matches being over within 2 days .By 2050,25/20 overs per innings.And test matches will be over within 1 day.

World Test Championships will happen after 2020.

3-4 substitutions will be allowed like football.That way the players on bench won't be drink servers.

Coaches & tech analysts will take over the captains in being the MVPs. They will be busy shouting at boundary lines like their football counterparts. Virtual reality will make the game more interesting.Not sure how though.Teams will be selected based on analysis by tech experts who use AI & Machine learning.It will be like the baseball movie Moneyball with Brad Pitt.

Bats,balls and cricket equipments might be made without animal products due to animal rights movement being strong in UK & Aus.

Murricaaaa,The Land of the Free will storm into Cricket by winning a WC in T20/T10.

No. of teams will increase a lot in WCs with each group having 4 teams & only 1 team going to next round.So 8 groups with 4 teams each & total of 32 teams will be possible.Knock out between 8 teams.

Champions Trophy will be gone.Meaningless Bilateral series will be gone.Ashes will be in shorter formats only.

Women's cricket will improve a lot.There might be a few friendly Intergender games with both men & women players playing in same XI.

Reserve teams of all top countries will be playing with minnows to help them improve their game.

Michael Holding will be rolling & crying in his grave. 

Overall interesting times ahead.ICC & other team boards will have to be on their toes to keep introducing new changes all the time to keep fans interested & money flowing into the game.

@Suhaan any thoughts? 

By 2050 Bcci will send Ind A,B along with senior team to compete in world cups,onedayers will be 35 overs affair

T20s will take major portion of calender,

Ipl will be played in other parts of the world other than Ind

Csk and MI will compete with their 4 teams,so precisely winner will be between these two ....

By 2050 icc will allow physical contact between players,just to allow them express their emotions, there by pouring in extra revenues

T20 world cup will be held in every six months

Most importantly Aus will have won 12 wcs by then

Some sane mind in icc will actually succeed in expanding the game to African countries

African countries will bring excitement to the game

Afghanistan will have won a t20wc but not BD
