The main reason behind this are the low class infrastructure, investment and also the climate. When it comes to climate it is one of the biggest hindrance where a game like football demands more of a physical involvement. Where players need to play for 90 minutes, when compare to cricket. It is called as a gentlemen game where no physical involvement is demanded in this game.
And one big reason is that people thinks that there is no future for football in India. Some people thinks that their life might get ruin if they play football for life. But cricket has a future.IT is also clearly seen that majority of people follows cricket in our country.
Another reason is that there are no proper coach and the facility to players is lacking. This is one reason that players did not give important to it. But in cricket the players get the best facilities and proper future. Indian consider the game of cricket as their own game. From winning the world cup people tent to play more cricket when compare to football. For this reason, one must try to understand the important of this game.
