Cricket is one of numerous games in the "club ball" circle that essentially include hitting a ball with a hand-held actualize; others incorporate baseball (which imparts numerous likenesses to cricket, both having a place in the more explicit bat-and-ball games class), golf, hockey, tennis, squash, badminton and table tennis.In cricket's case, a key contrast is the presence of a strong objective structure, the wicket (initially, it is thought, a "wicket entryway" through which sheep were crowded), that the batsman must defend. The cricket student of history Harry Altham distinguished three "gatherings" of "club ball" games: the "hockey gathering", in which the ball is headed back and forth between two focuses on (the objectives); the "golf gathering", in which the ball is driven towards an undefended objective (the opening); and the "cricket gathering", in which "the ball is focused on an imprint (the wicket) and driven away from it". 

It is by and large accepted that cricket started as a youngsters' down in the south-eastern provinces of England, at some point during the middle age period.Although there are claims for earlier dates, the soonest unmistakable reference to cricket being played comes from proof given at a legal dispute in Guildford on Monday, 17 January 1597 (Julian schedule; likening to 30 January 1598 in the Gregorian schedule). The case concerned responsibility for certain plot of land and the court heard the declaration of a 59-year-old coroner, John Derrick, who gave observer that :Being a scholler in the ffree schoole of Guldeford hee and different of his colleagues did runne and play there at creckett and other plaies.Given Derrick's age, it was about 50 years sooner when he was at school thus it is sure that cricket was being played c. 1550 by young men in Surrey. The view that it was initially a kids' down is fortified by Randle Cotgrave's 1611 English-French word reference in which he characterized the thing "crosse" as "the warped staff wherewith young men play at cricket" and the action word structure "crosser" as "to play at cricket". 

One potential hotspot for the game's name is the Old English word "cryce" (or "cricc") which means a prop or staff. In Samuel Johnson's Dictionary, he got cricket from "cryce, Saxon, a stick".In Old French, "criquet" appears to have implied a sort of club or stick.Given the solid archaic exchange associations between south-east England and the County of Flanders when the last had a place with the Duchy of Burgundy, the name may have been gotten from the Middle Dutch (being used in Flanders at that point) "krick"(- e), which means a stick (crook).Another conceivable source is the Middle Dutch word "krickstoel", which means a long low stool utilized for bowing in chapel and which took after the long low wicket with two stumps utilized in early cricket.According to Heiner Gillmeister, an European language master of Bonn University, "cricket" gets from the Middle Dutch expression for hockey, met de (krik ket)sen (i.e., "with the stick chase").Gillmeister has proposed that the name as well as the game itself might be of Flemish inception. 

Cricket remained a relaxed nearby pursuit for a significant part of the seventeenth century.It is known, through various references found in the records of clerical legal disputes, to have been banished on occasion by the Puritans previously and during the Commonwealth.The issue was almost consistently the issue of Sunday play as the Puritans believed cricket to be "profane" whenever played on the Sabbath, particularly if enormous groups or betting were involved.According to the social history specialist Derek Birley, there was a "incredible upsurge of game after the Restoration" in 1660.Gambling on game turned into an issue critical enough for Parliament to pass the 1664 Gambling Act, restricting stakes to £100 which was, regardless, a giant aggregate surpassing the yearly pay of 99% of the population.Along with prizefighting, horse dashing and blood sports, cricket was seen to be a betting sport.Rich supporters made counterparts for high stakes, shaping groups in which they drew in the main expert players. Before the century's over, cricket had formed into a significant game that was spreading all through England and was at that point being taken abroad by English sailors and colonizers – the most punctual reference to cricket abroad is dated 1676.A 1697 paper report makes due of "an incredible cricket coordinate" played in Sussex "for fifty guineas each" – this is the soonest known challenge that is by and large thought about a First Class coordinate.
