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

Yep, I work in IT and even most middle class English men I've worked with prefer football.

Rugby is also seen as a cool sport, you have to be very strong, fast and fit to play it. It's also fast paced.

I do like cricket but I can see why many don't.

How popular are kabaddi and hockey in the pind these days? 

In last 10 years or so , cricket has gained popularity in rural punjab.

kabaddi was always popular in pinds but in last 7-8 years has become popular in cities too due to the kabaddi world cup started by punjab govt.

hockey has always had a strong base in rural punjab.

He’s not a ‘Singh’ that we mean here.

his Mum is Christian 

You're right, he and his siblings are Christians. I think his dad is a Sikh. It just goes to show the weakness of our religion when even the man can't make his own kids Sikh.
