Cricket India:The Game Then And Now.

The game of cricket has been played in India for many years, it is a very famous and exciting game. This game is very much liked by the children, generally they have the habit of playing cricket in any small open places like small grounds, roads etc. Children are fond of knowing about cricket and its rules and regulations. Cricket is the most famous of the sports played in India at national and international level. The popularity of cricket among the people is so high that the crowd of spectators who go to the stadium to watch this game is hardly more than that for any other sport. 


Cricket is a professional level outdoor sport played by many countries at national and international level. In this outdoor game there are two teams of 11 players each. Cricket is played until 50 overs are completed. The rules and regulations related to this are governed and regulated by the International Cricket Council and Melbourne Cricket Club. This game is played in the form of test matches and one day and T20 international matches. This game was first played in southern England in the 16th century. However, it developed into the national game of England during the 18th century. 


History of Cricket


During the expansion of the British Empire, this game started being played in outside countries and in the 19th century, the first international match was organized by the ICC in two teams of 10 members each. Cricket is a very famous game which is played in many countries of the world like England, India, Australia, South Africa etc. 


In India, small children are crazy about this game and they play it in small open spaces, especially on roads and parks. If it is played and practiced daily then it is a very easy game. Cricket players need daily practice to improve their game so that they can remove small mistakes and play it with full flow. 


Not only cricket but any kind of sport not only increases health and enthusiasm but also develops a sense of healthy competition. Along with this, the game of cricket also develops mutual unity and brotherhood. At the time of the World Cup cricket tournament, the entire world becomes like one family and this is a great achievement for the game of cricket. 


With the changing times, a lot of changes have been made in the game of cricket. There was a time when ODI matches were also of 60 overs, but then a big decision was taken by ICC to settle them in 50 overs only, keeping in mind the vision of making the game more entertaining. 


Along with the changing times, many such players also emerged in the history of this game, due to which the perspective of watching and playing the game also changed. Names ranging from Don Bradman, Ian Botham, Malcolm Marshall, Vivian Richards, Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, Imran Khan, Wasim Akram to Sachin Tendulkar are included in this list, who changed the perspective of playing and watching the game. 


While on one hand people see a bright future in cricket, on the other hand its dark truth is also not hidden from anyone. That controversial statement of former South African captain Hansie Cronje is no less than a nightmare for cricket lovers even today, when one of the most successful captains of the South African team himself had confessed to the allegations of match fixing, in which the entire world was shocked. Names of many well-known personalities were revealed. In which question marks were raised on the inclusion of Indian team captain Mohammad Azharuddin, Ajay Jadeja, Manoj Prabhakar etc. The news of the involvement of many Bollywood celebrities in this also caught hold and after the murder of T-Series company owner Mr. Gulshan Kumar, this case cooled down, but the name of Mr. Krishna Kumar, younger brother of Gulshan Kumar, was named in the match fixing case. The matter was raised the most and this discussion raised such importanceIt got so bad that everyone started considering the younger brother responsible for the murder of the elder brother.


But time slowly takes every deep wound and dark truth in its embrace and covers it with the dust of the sands of its time…In today's era, match fixing is given a lot of respect and Dream 11 teams are prepared in every house, so that it becomes easier for the bookie to assess which player is of which level or which team needs to make changes. But it proves to be strong. 


My father was also a cricketer and used to make a lot of predictions about cricket, I still remember that after watching some of Sachin Tendulkar's early matches, he used to say, "You see, now whenever this boy During his retirement, such rules will be implemented in the history of cricket which willThis game will become very easy for the batsmen, " ... Although Sachin Tendulkar closed his eyes before his retirement, his prediction proved to be true, because by then the ICC had revised the rules of Power Play. Was implemented in cricket. Due to which this game became very easy for the batsmen, because field restrictions were implemented in it. According to which most of the fielders can be deployed around the boundary line only after the limitation of a few overs and not before that. Due to which this game became more simple from the batting point of view. This is the reason that today even Virat Kohli has easily broken Sachin Tendulkar's record, otherwise no one would have been able to break such a big record so soon.  


Now ICC may have implemented these rules with a view to make the game more entertaining, but the reality is that now the game has become easier for the batsmen rather than the bowlers. Similarly, in view of the continuous changes, today the infiltration of Bollywood is increasing in this game and the bookies are getting free allowances through IPL, at the same time, due to the infiltration of Bollywood, it is directly affecting the players and their performance. Is. Recently, the rising star of the Indian cricket team, Rishabh Pant, was found to be growing close to Bollywood actress Urvashi Rautela and was so deeply in love with her that he met with an accident. Due to which he missed playing the 2023 World Cup, it is going to have a direct impact on his career and looking at this sequence of events, it would not be wrong to say that the day is not far when the players of our own Indian cricket team will be affected by drugs. will also be found guilty in the case of, because the effect of bad company is often bad andBollywood is infamous for drug addiction.     


Now good and evil are two aspects of human life, their struggle will continue throughout life and will stop as soon as man dies... but if something is not going to end, then it is human's love for this game and Passion that knows no bounds or limits.
