Not every sport is that popular that it is played on almost every continent, but with cricket it is that case. You will find cricketers, that is what a cricket player is called, all over the world, especially in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the British islands. There is also a whole list of countries where it is on a rise, especially in African countries. The Test Match lasts is spread across five days and the tension builds up quite slowly which adds an additional reason why so many people like it.
The biggest cricket player is for sure Sir Don Bradman and no one since him was able to do what he did. Sachin Tendulkar has scored hundreds of scores in his career and he is one of the two players who we ever able to score a so-called ‘double century’ in a single ODI match. He comes from India, of course, and is considered the biggest Cricket guru of all times. The next one on the list is Gary Sobers who is a real all-rounder and is one of the few cricketers who are able to perform perfectly in every position.
Other names like Vivians Richard, Kapil Dev, Imran Khan and many others should also be mentioned when speaking of the best cricket players of all time. However, there are not that many famous cricket player who are currently active, which makes the sport somewhat different. There are so many aspects of the game that need to be followed, that it really is hard to become one of the best players ever, especially with such a competition. Still, the most interesting thing about this sport, that makes it a sport, is that it didn’t become too commercialized, which is hard to achieve nowadays.
