CHOSEN SPORTS CRICKET Cricket is a fantastic sport that appeals to every individual whether you enjoy playing slow or explosive games. Cricket is one of the oldest established games and is thought to be invented by the English, although the orgins of cricket are obscured, unrecorded, and the source of much speculation. There are several references concerning the origination of cricket. One reference is that a game similar to cricket was played in the 13th century called 'club-ball'. It is certain that the game was played with a ball and a crooked stick. The game through is centuries evolved and expanded. In the 19th century, cricket was played in many countries and public schools. Both upper and lower social classes played together, although they had particular roles within the game to signify their status. From these games clubs developed and county cricket was introduced. The suburban middle class began to take out county memberships and the large grounds began to take over the smaller, more portable fixtures. As cricket expanded, there was a need for rules; therefore, the MCC (Middlesex Cricket County) emerged as an organisation feature to be responsible for any problems or in any development.

Conclusion

shows a recent article on the controversial Pakistani bowler Shoiab Akhar. In 1998, during a tour of Australia, the umpire reported Shoaib as he was alleged to have an illegal action.

The ICC will now circulate the UWA report to all International Panel Umpires and Referees, asking them to pay particular attention to the report. In case Shoaib is called again, Stage 3 will be invoked and the full medical evidence placed before the ICC Bowling Review Group, for its final decision. Shoaib will be free to play International cricket unless banned by the ICC Bowling Review Group. Khalid Butt Media Manager PCB 24 December 2001 (c) PCB ...read more.
