READING COMPREHENSION : READ THE PASSAGE
No one knows exactly where or when cricket began, but it is most likely that it began as a children’s game in England, and was played only by children for many countries. It is believed that the game was invented by Children who belonged to the farming families of south-east England. They would play in grass cleaning or areas grazed by sheep. A matted lump of sheep’s wool, or even a stone or lump of wood, would be used as ball, a stick or some other farm tool would serve as the bat, and a gate or tree stump would be used for the Wicket. The earliest written reference to the game was in 1598, where it was called ‘Creekett’. In the 17th century, it slowly became a village game and adults began to take part in it. Today cricket is one of the most popular sports of the world and is played and watched by millions.
