ICC Cricket World Cup 2019
Cricket is played in every corner of India, on city streets, in villages, and among maidans – open playgrounds, including the biggest (such as Azad, Cross and Oval Maidans in South Mumbai) can accommodate dozens of overlapping games. Historically, Indian cricketers have shown a good eye and powerful wrists, and Indian drummers, including Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar, have been among the most productive and stylish in cricket history. The flat and dry lands of the subcontinent have also traditionally produced high class bowlers.
The origins of the game in India date back to the 18th century. Lord Hawke, an English cricket player on tour, played a match against the All India team in January 1893. India made its first test in 1932 and waited 20 years for its first win against England in Madras (now Chennai). . The game developed so quickly in India that at the end of the 20th century, India was one of the most striking countries in the world. With the growth of the Indian Premier League in the early 21st century, it has become the undisputed home of Twenty20 cricket and the financial center of international gaming, although the popularity of cricket testing has dropped dramatically in India. India’s importance in cricket for a day was confirmed when she won the Cricket World Cup in 2011.
Cricket has always ranked rugby second among the sporting priorities of New Zealanders, but, like Australia, football has a strong national structure in New Zealand. The long history of domestic cricket in the country often dates back to the first representative interprovincial match between Auckland and Wellington in 1860, although it is proved that unofficial matches between provinces had been disputed in New Zealand decades earlier. The New Zealand Cricket Council was established in 1894 and was admitted to full membership of the ICC in 1926. New Zealand, which has a small number of players to draw on, has always had struggling to compete with England and Australia in cricket. As in most cricket countries, the game of a day has proved more popular in New Zealand. In Richard Hadlee, who was knighted in 1990, the country produced one of the greatest cricketers of all time.
“In the game of cricket, a hero is a person who respects the game and does not corrupt it.The one who does not corrupts or corrupts him is the bad guy.They must be punished, and they have been punished the past”. Virat Kohli
