It would be easy to be surprised by the fact that besides the UK, the most visitors to my cricket based website have come from the United States. USA is not perceived to be a hub of cricket activity and interest but of course USA is such a large and diversely populated country. The nation is home to many expatriates from cricket obsessed countries such as India, Pakistan and West Indies as well as hopefully, a developing interest amongst the local community. Proportionally then, with a population of in excess of 325 million people, it makes perfect sense that so many visitors have discovered Silly Point. Compared with some nations across the globe, quite simply, access to the internet is another crucial factor in receiving visits from the United States.
Congratulations and many thanks to the people of America for accumulating 1000 career runs. India on 804 and Australia with 683 are comfortably placed in third and fourth on my list and nearing 1000 runs. Good luck to them both but where are you Central African Republic?
