Beginnings of cricket

With innumerable children emulating the WC cricketers on home grown pitches around the world its interesting to see that the original game was played by children not adults.

Another irony is that on Wikipedia, the first recorded instance of adults playing 'crecket' is a court record of two men prosecuted in 1611 for playing instead of attending church...could be that in some parts of the world church is being missed because the cup games are on.
