This statistic shows the results of a survey on the number of people who play cricket at least once a month at any intensity for any duration in England between 2007 and 2016. The survey was conducted via telephone interviews and the latest update on it was conducted for the time period between October 2015 and September 2016 with a total of 163,108 respondents. The data collected resulted with the conclusion that as of September 2016 approximately 278,600 adults in England play cricket on a monthly basis. As of 2015 there were approximately 292,600 cricket players participating on a monthly basis in England. Since 2008 the number of cricket players has thus been decreasing from 428,000 players.
