On the face of it, the sport is a simple one and one that remains consistent as it is a sport that featured 2 teams of 11 players with one side trying to outscore the other. Each team has a go at batting and trying to score runs whilst their opponents field and try to stop them from scoring.
The 2 teams then swap and the team with the most runs at the end of the match are declared the winners.

Unfortunately with so many matches happening in so many competitions around the world, often at the same time, even the biggest games, featuring the worlds biggest stars can be overlooked by television companies.
Arguably the worst aspect for fans is that the coverage of Cricket is split across a number of pay to watch television services which means that if you are an ardent fan of the sport, you will not only have to take out 1 expensive and ongoing subscription but numerous and concurrently to where it gets to the point that it is simply unfeasible for the vast majority of us to take out the subscriptions and to watch the action.

The history of the sport is a long and fascinating one for people interested in that sort of things but it is difficult to state exactly when the sport we now know as Cricket actually began.
That is because the sport grew out of simply bat and ball games of the early 1300’s with other sports including the likes of golf, hockey, tennis, squash, badminton and table tennis all tracing their own roots back to that period.
The sport started to move away from the others as farmers and farming communities started to play the sport where it is thought that batsmen would defend the wicket gate (where sheep were herded), hence were we get wicked from to this very day.
It is believed that the sport actually started life more as a children’s game in the south-east of England during the Medieval period with the first recorded match been dated to January 1597 when court testimony mentioned the playing of a game of ‘Creckett’.
The modern style of the game started to be developed in the 1600’s but it was the 1700’s when the sport really started to take off and much of that was down the game becoming hugely popular with gamblers as vast sums were bet on the action.
The Hambledon Club, the first modern day style club was formed in the 1760’saroudn 20 years before the formation of the Marylebone Crocket Club (MCC) which remains such an important part of the sport to today.
The MCC developed the sports laws to create an unformal sport that was played around the country and from their it has spread across the world. This was especially true during the Victorian era as the British Empire exported the sport to all of the countries that is conquered and controlled.
Nowadays, the biggest names of the sport are household names but the first plyer to make the breakthrough into a mainstream star was W. G. Grace who during the era of amateurism, he become incredibly rich playing the sport and helped develop Cricket into a professional sport played by dedicated sportsmen.
