Cricket is by far the most popular sport in India, by a massive margin, as noted. Field hockey is also pretty big, and India fields competitive teams. Football is making in-roads.

If Indians are so smart then why are they so poor?

It's not like they haven't been around for a while. It's not like their country has zero resources.

Why can't they do both sports and education?

Sports makes money. Sales of tickets, television, equipment and tons of other shit. Sports creates jobs of all kinds from being an athlete to coding a sports video game or being a statistician.

Or maybe Indians are too naan violent for sports?

I hope that's international football/soccer/calcio, and not fucking American football.
