SECTION - A 1. Read the following passage carefully: 1 2 3 4 5 1.1 (Reading) Cricket is a global passion, played everywhere from Test match arenas to village greens, tropical beaches, dusty back lots. Cricket is the world s second most popular sport after Football. The origin of Cricket is somewhere in Dark Ages. All research concedes that the game is derived from a very old, widespread and uncomplicated pastime by which one player served an object, be it a small piece of wood or a ball, and another hit it with a suitably fashioned club. Cricket was first recorded in 16th-century England, and it was played in the grammar schools, farm communities and everywhere in between. But things really took off when 18th-century nobles realized, it was a great sport. The oldest surviving set of Cricket laws date from 1744 printed on a handkerchief. It s now in MCC Museum at Lord s in London. The oldest permanent fixture is the annual Eton vs Harrow match, played since 1805. A young Lord Byron turned out for Harrow in the first match, though history doesn t record how poetic or mad, bad and dangerous his bowling was. The first international match was in 1877 when Australia beat England in Melbourne. The match was dubbed as Test , since the gruelling nature of playing over five days was deemed the ultimate test for any side. But it was Australia s first win on English soil in 1882 at The Oval in London that led to matches between the two nations being christened as Ashes. Following the defeat, newspapers published an obituary mourning the death of English cricket , adding that the body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia . The One Day International (ODI) is a form of limited overs cricket, played between two teams with international status, in which each team faces a fixed number of overs, usually 50. The Cricket World Cup is played in this format. The international one-day game is a late 20th Century development. The first ODI was played on 5th January 1971 between Australia and England. Attempt any eight of the following questions : a) b) c) d) e) f) g) h) i) How did the game of Cricket originate? Where can we find the oldest set of Cricket laws? Which match did Lord Byron play? When was the first international match played? Which countries played the first international match? Why were the matches between Australia and England titled The Ashes ?
