What You Don't Know About The Cricket Sporting


Many don't know the real reason behind the game of playing the cricket . The following point displayed the fact about playing the game.

(1)Cricket's origins are uncertain and the earliest definite reference is in south-east England in the middle of the 16th century. It spread globally with the expansion of the British Empire, leading to the first international matches in the second half of the 19th century. The game's governing body is the International Cricket Council (ICC), which has over 100 members, twelve of which are full members who play Test matches.Cricket ball, cricket bat,wicket (Stumps,bails ), various protective equipment.

(2)Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a field at the centre of which is a 20-metre (22-yard) pitch with a wicket at each end, each comprising two bails balanced on three stumps.The game is adjudicated by two umpires , aided by a third umpire and match referee in international matches. They communicate with two off-field
scorers who record the match's
statistical information.There are various formats ranging from
Twenty , played over a few hours with each team batting for a single innings of 20 overs, to Test matches , played over five days with unlimited overs and the teams each batting for two innings of unlimited length.

(3)Although the main object of the game has always been to score the most
runs , the early form of cricket differed from the modern game in certain key technical aspects. The ball was bowled underarm by the bowler and all along the ground towards a batsman armed with a bat that, in shape, resembled a
hockey stick ; the batsman defended a low, two-stump wicket; and runs were called "notches" because the scorers recorded them by notching tally sticks.

(4)The most famous player of the 19th century was W. G. Grace , who started his long and influential career in 1865. It was especially during the career of Grace that the distinction between amateurs and professionals became blurred by the existence of players like him who were nominally amateur but, in terms of their financial gain, de facto professional. Grace himself was said to have been paid more money for playing cricket than any professional.
