Cricket, being the most popular sport in the countries like India, England, Australia, South Africa, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, and West Indies, now certainly enjoys thousands of fans and followers in the United States.

Cricket has been one of the most popular games at the University of Houston as well. Continuously, for more than 12 years, graduate students at this university have shown a dedicated passion and love for the game, which motivated the inception of Cougars Cricket Club at the University of Houston in August 2009.
