Cricket — Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a cricket field, at the centre of which is a rectangular yard-long pitch with a wicket at each end. One team bats, attempting to score as many runs as possible, each phase of play is called an innings. After either ten batsmen have been dismissed or a number of overs have been completed, the innings ends. The winning team is the one that scores the most runs, including any extras gained, at the start of each game, two batsmen and eleven fielders enter the field of play.
The striker takes guard on a crease drawn on the four feet in front of the wicket. His role is to prevent the ball hitting the stumps by use of his bat. The other batsman, known as the non-striker, waits at the end of the pitch near the bowler. A dismissed batsman must leave the field, and a teammate replaces him, the bowlers objectives are to prevent the scoring of runs and to dismiss the batsman. An over is a set of six deliveries bowled by the same bowler, the next over is bowled from the other end of the pitch by a different bowler.
If a fielder retrieves the ball enough to put down the wicket with a batsman not having reached the crease at that end of the pitch. Adjudication is performed on the field by two umpires, the laws of cricket are maintained by the International Cricket Council and the Marylebone Cricket Club.
Traditionally cricketers play in all-white kit, but in limited overs cricket they wear club or team colours. In addition to the kit, some players wear protective gear to prevent injury caused by the ball.

In many areas, one sport is referred to simply as hockey. The English historian and biographer John Strype did not use the word hockey when he translated the proclamation inthe word hockey itself is of unknown origin. One supposition is that it is a derivative of hoquet, a Middle French word for a shepherds stave, the curved, or hooked ends of the sticks used for hockey would indeed have resembled these staves. Another supposition derives from the use of cork bungs, in place of wooden balls to play the game.
The stoppers came from barrels containing hock ale, also called hocky, Games played with curved sticks and a ball can be found in the histories of many cultures. In Inner Mongolia, the Daur people have been playing beikou, most evidence of hockey-like games during the Middle Ages is found in legislation concerning sports and games.

Tennis is an Olympic sport and is played at all levels of society, the sport can be played by anyone who can hold a racket, including wheelchair users. The modern game of tennis originated in Birmingham, England, in the late 19th century as lawn tennis and it had close connections both to various field games such as croquet and bowls as well as to the older racket sport of real tennis.
The rules of tennis have changed little since the s, two exceptions are that from to the server had to keep one foot on the ground at all times, and the adoption of the tiebreak in the s. Tennis is played by millions of players and is also a popular worldwide spectator sport. Historians believe that the ancient origin lay in 12th century northern France. Louis X of France was a player of jeu de paume, which evolved into real tennis.

It was popular in England and France, although the game was played indoors where the ball could be hit off the wall.
Henry VIII of England was a big fan of this game, during the 18th century and early 19th century, as real tennis declined, new racket sports emerged in England.

Squash sport — Squash is a racket sport played by two or four players in a four-walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball. The players must alternate in striking the ball with their racket, the game was formerly called squash rackets, a reference to the squashable soft ball used in the game. The governing body of Squash, the World Squash Federation is recognised by the International Olympic Committee, supporters continue to lobby for its incorporation in a future Olympic program.
The use of stringed rackets is shared with tennis, which dates from the sixteenth century. In rackets, instead of hitting over a net as in such as tennis. Squash was invented in Harrow School out of the older game rackets around before the spread to other schools. The first courts built at this school were rather dangerous because they were near water pipes, buttresses, chimneys, the school soon built four outside courts.
Natural rubber was the material of choice for the ball, students modified their rackets to have a smaller reach to play in these cramped conditions. The rackets have changed in a way to those used in tennis. Squash rackets used to be out of laminated timber. In the s, construction shifted to materials with small additions of components like Kevlar, boron. Natural gut strings were replaced with synthetic strings. In the 19th century the increased in popularity with various schools, clubs and even private citizens building squash courts.
The first squash court in North America appeared at St. Pauls School in Concord, in in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the earliest national association of squash in the world was formed as the United States Squash rackets Association, now known as U.

Typically, the takes place in pools or in open-water. Competitive swimming is one of the most popular Olympic sports, with events in butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle, in addition to these individual events, swimmers also take part in relays.
Swimming each stroke requires specific techniques, and in competition, there are specific regulations concerning the form for different strokes. There are also put in place to regulate what types of swimsuits are allowed at competitions. Although it is possible for competitive swimmers to incur several injuries from the sport, evidence of recreational swimming in prehistoric times has been found, with the earliest evidence dating to Stone Age paintings from around years ago.
Written references date from BC, with some of the earliest references to swimming including the Iliad, the Odyssey, the Bible, Beowulf, the Quran and others. InNikolaus Wynmann, a German professor of languages, wrote the first swimming book, Swimming emerged as a competitive recreational activity in the s in England.
Inthe first indoor swimming pool, St Georges Baths was opened to the public, bythe National Swimming Society was holding regular swimming competitions in six artificial swimming pools, built around London.

Womens swimming was introduced into the Olympics inthe first international tournament for women outside the Olympics was the Womens Olympiad, Butterfly was developed in the s and was at first a variant of breaststroke, until it was accepted as a separate style in Competitive swimming became popular in the 19th century, the goal of competitive swimming is to break personal or world records while beating competitors in any given event Table tennis — Table tennis, also known as ping pong, is a sport in which two or four players hit a lightweight ball back and forth across a table using a small bat.
The game takes place on a hard table divided by a net, a point is scored when a player fails to return the ball within the rules.
Play is fast and demands quick reactions, spinning the ball alters its trajectory and limits an opponents options, giving the hitter a great advantage. The table tennis rules are specified in the ITTF handbook. Table tennis has been an Olympic sport sincewith several event categories, from untilthese were mens singles, womens singles, mens doubles and womens doubles.
Sincean event has been played instead of the doubles. The sport originated in Victorian England, where it was played among the upper-class as a parlour game. It has been suggested that makeshift versions of the game were developed by British military officers in India in around s or s, who brought it back with them. A row of books stood up along the center of the table as a net and it had several different names, including whiff-whaff. Interestingly, this period has been the same where the squad has been bereft of a permanent coach.
Two temporary coaches have come and gone, but TSA wonders if that is all that the administration can do for such a talented bunch of athletes. Even the Table tennis squad, which was placed in the group of death along with Guwahati, Roorkee and Bombay, had some sort of coaching only from October, and then too only on weekends.
Such results are testimony to the talent that KGP possessed, but lacked the temperament to finish the games due to insufficient coaching.
Similar is the case for badminton, which had temporary coaching from Chandan Pramanik, but were pretty much on their own for the most part. Another reason that contributed to the poor start that KGP received in most sports was the mindless journey that all athletes had to endure to reach KGP.
The table-tennis players had to even invest in their own rubbers and ply for the tournament, even though they were promised that the entire amount would be refunded. The question that needs to be asked is how the allocated funds are being used. Looking back at Shaurya, one can easily see that any team had to play a maximum of three-four matches to win the tournament, while in Inter-IIT it takes a minimum of six. Another change that most current captains would like to see is the start of practice from the Spring semester itself.
That coupled with some sort of a Holiday Inter-IIT camp during the Durga Puja break would serve not only to sharpen the acumen of our athletes, but would also increase the bonding of the contingent as a whole, something which was lacking in Roorkee.Best race of INTERIIT Sports meet 2017
Motivation of players It is no secret that an Inter-IIT certificate in your curriculum vitae significantly increases chances of a Day 1 placement. And nobody really has an issue with that. Another reason why some players may not be strongly motivated is the complete lack of incentives to perform well, apart from the love for the sport. Kislaya Dubey, who has the distinction of representing Kharagpur in both Water Polo and badminton, feels the buzz in the campus is only about getting into the team and not what happens afterwards.
He also points in the direction of dedicated efforts by sports councils of other IITs who maintain performance record of each and every Inter-IIT player and regularly publicize them. There is much prestige involved when it comes to Inter-IIT.
It is hence only natural that the host IIT tries to maximize its chances of securing as high a position as possible in the General Championship.
