History of Cricket
Since 500 years England has been playing cricket. It evolved as a distinct game around the 17th century. Initially, up till the mid 18th century, the bat employed in cricket was like the hockey stick. It used to be curved outwards. The test matches are the only format of any game played for five days, and after these five days, they can still end in a draw. Another interesting rule of cricket is that the pitch's length is 22 yards, but the size of the ground does not have any specifications.

Rules of Cricket
They first wrote rules about cricket around 1744. The rules gave the umpires the ultimate power to resolve any dispute. The rules mandated that the stumps would be 22 inches high and the bails across them would be six inches. The ball weighs about five or six ounces, and the distance between the two sets of stumps in the rules was 22 yards. The first leg-before rule was published in 1744, and it was during the same time that the third stump became popular.

Cricket Equipment
The bats are made of cork, leather, and twine. Synthetic materials like vulcanised rubber are used only in making protective equipment like pads, gloves, helmets, etc. Cricket in India was first played in Bombay by the Zoroastrian or Parsi community. The first Indian cricket club 'The Oriental Cricket Club', was founded in Bombay in 1848.

Modern Cricket and Use of Technology
Some of the great players we all fondly remember are those who have played in Test cricket. CK Nayudu, the first Test captain of India, is one such great player. He led the side when India became a Test-playing nation in 1932, many years before its independence. Test cricket initially was played among various parts of the British Empire and not between sovereign states. Television coverage has brought cricket to every household. With satellite television, it is now possible to catch live updates of matches played anywhere across the world. India has the largest viewership of the game and is the largest market for cricket. Indian cricket players are the best- paid and the most famous in the world.
