Boyhood days. We play cricket without shoes with an orange or paper rolled up. The Bat would be the limb from a coconut tree and the wicket is sticks cut from the bushes.
Who invented cricket?
Origin. Cricket was probably created during Saxon or Norman times by children living in the Weald, an area of dense woodlands and clearings in south-east England that lies across Kent and Sussex.
In 1623, the first British colony in the Caribbean itself was established at St Kitts in the Leeward Islands. ... We do not know when or where cricket was first played in the West Indies but it is reasonable to assume that it was introduced by these early colonist.
