England is well known for its sporting traditions. When you say Cricket, the first thing that comes to mind is definitely England. Cricket is world’s third largest and most viewed sporting event and it’s an honour that England is the founder behind all forms of crickets including test matches, one day internationals and the various T20 matches played all over the world. Documentaries and predictions say cricket originated from different games like Kreckett, Stoolball, baseball and some other ball games. Some say 13th, some 15th, while others say it has grown from the 15th century and was successful as a complete game only in the eighteenth century.

England being the home to Cricket plays its part in different cricket tournaments played all over the world.
