dc.description.abstractIt is the aim of this dissertation, to answer three questions about cricket. First, why do people play cricket? Thus look at cricket in its historic perspective to discover where it originated and its development throughout the years. Second, how do people become involved in cricket? The administration of cricket, both internationally and domestically, including club cricket, and the third question, and perhaps the most important - how do you prepare a pitch so that it is the best available on which to play cricket? The other areas that are looked at are the main techniques involved in cricket which are explained in the glossary, and finally a short discussion on the game's future, in light of the recent changes within cricket. It is hoped that this work will do more than gather dust in a library, but act as a guide to groundsmen and women who have the difficult task of preparing the cricket pitch for the local school or club, or even a Shell series game or international match.en
