We chose cricket because a member of our group is Indian and she knows how to play.

List the countries where it is played and its origin.

It is popular in a lot of British countries like England and Australia.   It is played all over the world. The game originated in India.

List the equipment needed.

Make recommendations for what type of athlete would enjoy playing this game. What skills does it demand?

Sara:  A baseball player would definitely enjoy playing cricket, because it uses a bat, a ball and you have to score runs.  You must be a good and fast runner just as in baseball. 

What are your feelings about this game? Did you enjoy playing it? Would you recommend it?

Sara:  Cricket is mostly played by boys but I think that I could learn it.   It would be good to play on a bright and sunny day.
