Does this sentence need the 'er'?

I second the question. How about "Hij houdt echt van cricket te spelen"?

Is this a proper sentence: "Hij speelt echt graag cricket"?

I ask, because "Hij speelt erg graag cricket" is accepted as an answer. I've reported it, but since I'm ultimately not sure one way or the other, I'd love to know here!

It's fine. Keep in mind that in your sentence there will almost always be quite a lot of emphasis on echt (unlike the sentence using erg which can be without emphasis). I guess the difference between erg graag and echt graag is similar to very much and really a lot.
