Originating in England, the game of cricket spread throughout the British Empire and remains incredibly popular in England, South Africa, the Caribbean, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Australia and New Zealand.
Test cricket, the original form of cricket, is played over five days and can often end in a draw. The most famous and important Test series undoubtedly The Ashes, a five game series between England and Australia that began in 1882.
Limited overs cricket featuring 50 overs a side began in 1963 with the first international played in 1971 and the first Cricket World Cup taking place in England in 1975. A new limited overs form has made an immediate impact in recent years, with the rise of Twenty20 adding to the popularity and growth of cricket around the world.
Many famous cricket players have become part of a nations psyche. Australia’s Don Bradman is widely regarded as the best player of all time, but each cricketing nation has a host of heroes. Pakistan’s Wasim Akram, Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan, West Indies’ Brian Lara, England’s Ian Botham and the Little Master himself, India’s Sachin Tendulkar, just to name a few.
