Cricket isn't a widely known sport here. It may exist, but it's not very well-known here. We're not self-absorbed or ignorant. Its not widely known, therefore we don't focus much on it. Very few of you know anything about American football, but that doesn't mean you're self-absorbed. It just means that football isn't very widely known outside of America. We have different popular sports, such as baseball, football, basketball, etc. None of us understand it because it's not a widely played sport here. We're not self-absorbed and ignorant because we don't understand it; we simply don't understand it because very few of us know such a sport even exists. And that's because once again, it's not a popular sport here.
