59. ‘Popping Crease’ is associated with which games?
(a) Swimming (b) Cricket (c) Water polo (d) Lawn Tennis
Answer : (b)
Explanation : The odd name of the popping crease refers to the early history of the game of cricket, when batsmen used to have to ‘pop’ their bats into a small hole that was located in the middle of the crease for a run to count. For a player to run a batsman out, he had to pop the ball into the hole before the bat was grounded in it.
