Cricket is a gentleman’s game and it was a mystery until many were unknown to the game now men’s & women’s both are playing well. A game with a lot of opportunities and a lot of hard work and patience to learn and expertise in it. Nowadays as all, you know Ipl matches are going on in Dubai in which 8 teams are competing for each other to compete and win the title.

The game underwent major development in the 18th century to become England’s national sport. It’s successfully underwritten by the twin necessities of patronage and betting. Cricket was prominent in London as early as 1707 and, in the middle years of the century, large crowds flocked to match on the Artillery Ground in Finsbury. The single wicket form of the sport attracted huge crowds and wagers to match, its popularity peaking in the 1748 season. Bowling underwent an evolution around 1760 when bowlers began to pitch the ball instead of rolling or skimming it towards the batsman. This caused a revolution in bat design because, to deal with the bouncing ball, it was necessary to introduce the modern straight bat in place of the old “hockey stick” shape Cricket has had a broad impact on popular culture, both in the Commonwealth of Nations and elsewhere. It has, for example, influenced the lexicon of these nations, especially the English language, with various phrases such as “that’s not cricket” (that’s unfair), “had a good innings” (lived a long life) and “sticky wicket”. “On a sticky wicket” (aka “sticky dog” or “glue pot”) is a metaphor used to describe a difficult circumstance. It originated as a term for difficult batting conditions in cricket, caused by a damp and soft pitch.
