For many sports fans in England, in particular, the summer months are synonymous with the 1. game/play of cricket. The Sunday afternoon match on the village green with the church and pub behind, evokes an image that is 2. likely/truly English.

Some sources say cricket was played in England as long ago as medieval times (around 1000 to 1400) and a game played in the eastern 3. country/county of Essex in 1562 was decribed as ’clykett’. Other references 4. suggest/suggests it was played in the 16th century, while the account of cricket in a 1706 poem by William Goldwin indicates that the modern game is descended from one played in the 17th century. The earliest surviving rules date back to 1744 and shortly after England’s most famous club, the Marylebone Cricket Club (M.C.C.), was 5. founded/found.

Cricket is a complex game, its rules are too 6. complicating/complicated to decribe here. As its popularity 7. built/grew, however, the game spread to the British colonies – to India, Australia, Barbados, and South Africa.
