Believed to date back to Tudor times in England, the sport began to grow in popularity in the 17th century before becoming
the national sport 100 years later. The first ever Test match, between England and Australia, took place in 1877, while the
sport was dominated by Aussie legend Don Bradman during the inter-war years. By the 1960s, the game had become increasingly
more popular and lucrative, mainly due to a change in the rules which limited the number of balls that could be bowled at
the batsmen during a match. From this decade onwards, numerous star players would make their name in all corners of the globe,
from influential West Indies heroes Frank Worrell and Brian Lara to English titans Ian Botham and Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff.
