A Brief History & Rules of Cricket
The history of cricket can trace back to somewhere in England in the 17th century. It’s a simple pastime. One person lifts (throws) an object (a small piece of wood or a round object), and the other person hits it with a stick / shaped bat.
The earliest statute law (rules) dates back to 1744. The Hampton Club in Hampshire is the focal point of cricket, starting from 1768 to about 1788.
It attracts the main sponsors of the land and the best cricketers. It is a place where cricket has taken a big step forward from today’s rural entertainment methods.
In 1787, Thomas Lord of Yorkshire opened a cricket ground in London. In the same year, the Marylebone Cricket Club was established.
Today, the current Lord of St. John’s Wood is the most famous cricket venue in the world, and M. C. C. is the authority on all cricket legislation.
Today, in the 21st century, the history of cricket is going to touch its peak values, and cricket has closely followed the same and has become the most famous game in the world.
Currently, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has more approx. One hundred members: 12 full members who are eligible to participate in the test competition, and 92 members/associate members. Sri Lanka became a full member in the year 1981 after being proposed by India and Pakistan.
The process of becoming a full member will first be elected as a member, then as a member of the association, and finally as a full member eligible to participate in a cricket match. ICC is responsible for setting/update and the implementation of rules of cricket. To set up rules, ICC follows the interest of Cricket fans and with the suggestions of most famous cricket players/team captains.
