Yes, and the pakistanis are usually of lower class economically, so more inclined to push their kids to cricket .   Sikhs in England more likely in future to emerge from private school system a

Only slightly. Football is king, can be played in all weather conditions, is a simple game and much more 'trendy' Cricket is even behind rugby in popularity in the upper-middle class typess

How come all Singh's are spinners.

I have never seen a Singh who is a fast bowler. 

They're sensible and know it is less strain on the body.

Also, Virdi, Panesar and Harbhajan Singh are all from Ramgharia background, so maybe it's because they're 'good with their hands'

Yes, all fingers and wrists but no shoulders. 

I think fast bowlers develop back problems.

Less strain on the body? This is baaniya talk!

Jasprit Bumrah is also Ramgarhia but bowls very quick.

Are you saying putting total force of your body vs more controlled slower force is less strain? 
 

why damage yourself physically if you can achieve similar outcomes with a different approach? 
 

a lot of fast bowlers get many chronic injuries. Not saying spin bowlers don’t but I know which option I would choose

I have yet to see a Singh who is a super fielder like Jonty Rhodes.

One is quick and gets the run outs and does all the diving catches. 

Maybe one day.

Any idea why that is? 
 

youvraj Singh was a good fielder

In England spinners are not guaranteed a spot in the team, the conditions are more suited to fast bowlers, especially those who can swing the ball.

Cricket is already considered quite unathletic to most sports and the fact that not many Indians or Sikhs have not done well in fast bowling just makes us look weak.
