A Brief History of Cricket
Cricket is the dominant "bat-and-ball" sport played by former countries and colonies of the British Commonwealth. An early ancestor of baseball, the first recorded cricket match occurred in Kent, England in 1646. Cricket was a popular sport in the early American colonies, favored by early Presidents such as John Adams. The first International cricket match was played in New York in 1844 between the United States and Canada (won by Canada) and has seen widespread international competition ever since. As a 21st Century sport, cricket is played in every country, on every continent, and its websites are second only to Major League Baseball in total number of visitors.
