Mumbai: NBA star Chris Bosh is confident that basketball will catch up with other sports in India in popularity but conceded that cricket will remain number one in fan following just like American football is in his home country.

"I don't think it (basketball) will be the most popular sport (in India). Even in America, it is not the most popular sport. American football will always be the king. But that does not mean a lot of people won't like it.

"I think cricket will always be the national sport but it is always great to love another sport and other people to see what else is out there," Bosh told PTI in an interaction here during his maiden visit to the country to promote basketball.
