Cricket ist eine Mannschaftssportart, die vor allem in England und den Ländern des Commonwealth große Popularität genießt. Jeweils eine Zeit lang ist eine. Die bekannte Cricketgeschichte geht bis auf das Jahrhundert zurück. Der erste Ländervergleich fand statt, obwohl die offizielle Länderspielgeschichte (Test Cricket) erst begann. Seit seiner Entstehung in England hat sich Cricket bis heute als eine. In Australien ist ein Sommer ohne Cricket kein wirklicher Sommer. Beim Picknick, beim Barbecue, im Garten, am Strand, auf der Straße, in Parks und in den. Dies wurde in der Folgezeit üblich.

Bei dieser Spielform wird das Spiel an bis zu fünf Tagen — in täglich drei rund zweistündigen Spielabschnitten — ausgetragen. Der Bowler wird durch die anderen Feldspieler unterstützt, die den Ball so schnell wie möglich zurückzubringen versuchen. Jede Mannschaft versucht normalerweise verschiedene Bowlertypen für ein Spiel aufzustellen. Die neuste Spielform im Cricket ist Twenty20 Cricket, eine noch kürzere Variante zu je 20 Over pro Mannschaft, für die Abendstunden, die sofort nach ihrer Einführung in England im Jahr sehr populär wurde, später auch weltweit.

From the section BBC News. It was the first known example of a natural enemy that locates its host or prey using the mating signal.
In response to this selective pressure, a mutation leaving males unable to chirp was observed amongst a population of field crickets on the Hawaiian island of Kauai , enabling these crickets to elude their parasitoid predators.
Some species, such as the ground crickets Nemobiinae , are wingless; others have small fore wings and no hind wings Copholandrevus , others lack hind wings and have shortened fore wings in females only, while others are macropterous, with the hind wings longer than the fore wings.
Probably, most species with hind wings longer than fore wings engage in flight. Some species, such as Gryllus assimilis , take off, fly, and land efficiently and well, while other species are clumsy fliers.
In other species, they may be pulled off and consumed by the cricket itself or by another individual, probably providing a nutritional boost.
Gryllus firmus exhibits wing polymorphism ; some individuals have fully functional, long hind wings and others have short wings and cannot fly.
The short-winged females have smaller flight muscles, greater ovarian development, and produce more eggs, so the polymorphism adapts the cricket for either dispersal or reproduction.
Captive crickets are omnivorous ; when deprived of their natural diet, they accept a wide range of organic foodstuffs. Some species are completely herbivorous , feeding on flowers, fruit, and leaves, with ground-based species consuming seedlings, grasses, pieces of leaf, and the shoots of young plants.
Others are more predatory and include in their diet invertebrate eggs, larvae, pupae, moulting insects, scale insects , and aphids.
Crickets have relatively powerful jaws, and several species have been known to bite humans. Male crickets establish their dominance over each other by aggression.
They start by lashing each other with their antennae and flaring their mandibles. Unless one retreats at this stage, they resort to grappling, at the same time each emitting calls that are quite unlike those uttered in other circumstances.
When one achieves dominance, it sings loudly, while the loser remains silent. Females are generally attracted to males by their calls, though in nonstridulatory species, some other mechanism must be involved.
After the pair has made antennal contact, a courtship period may occur during which the character of the call changes. The female mounts the male and a single spermatophore is transferred to the external genitalia of the female.
After copulation , the female may remove or eat the spermatophore; males may attempt to prevent this with various ritualised behaviours.
The female may mate on several occasions with different males. Most crickets lay their eggs in the soil or inside the stems of plants, and to do this, female crickets have a long, needle-like or sabre-like egg-laying organ called an ovipositor.
Some ground-dwelling species have dispensed with this, either depositing their eggs in an underground chamber or pushing them into the wall of a burrow.
Crickets are hemimetabolic insects, whose lifecycle consists of an egg stage, a larval or nymph stage that increasingly resembles the adult form as the nymph grows, and an adult stage.
The egg hatches into a nymph about the size of a fruit fly. This passes through about 10 larval stages, and with each successive moult , it becomes more like an adult.
After the final moult, the genitalia and wings are fully developed, but a period of maturation is needed before the cricket is ready to breed.
Some species of cricket are polyandrous. In Gryllus bimaculatus , the females select and mate with multiple viable sperm donors, preferring novel mates.
Fertilization bias depends on the control of sperm transport to the sperm storage organs. The inhibition of sperm storage by female crickets can act as a form of cryptic female choice to avoid the severe negative effects of inbreeding.
Crickets have many natural enemies and are subject to various pathogens and parasites. They are eaten by large numbers of vertebrate and invertebrate predators and their hard parts are often found during the examination of animal intestines.
The entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae attacks and kills crickets and has been used as the basis of control in pest populations. The diseases may spread more rapidly if the crickets become cannibalistic and eat the corpses.
Red parasitic mites sometimes attach themselves to the dorsal region of crickets and may greatly affect them. Other wasps in the family Scelionidae are egg parasitoids, seeking out batches of eggs laid by crickets in plant tissues in which to insert their eggs.
The fly Ormia ochracea has very acute hearing and targets calling male crickets. It locates its prey by ear and then lays its eggs nearby.
The developing larvae burrow inside any crickets with which they come in contact and in the course of a week or so, devour what remains of the host before pupating.
A trade-off exists for the male between attracting females and being parasitized. The phylogenetic relationships of the Gryllidae, summarized by Darryl Gwynne in from his own work using mainly anatomical characteristics and that of earlier authors, [a] are shown in the following cladogram , with the Orthoptera divided into two main groups, Ensifera crickets sensu lato and Caelifera grasshoppers.
Fossil Ensifera are found from the late Carboniferous period Mya onwards,   and the true crickets, Gryllidae, from the Triassic period to Mya.
Cladogram after Gwynne, Tettigonioidea katydids, bush crickets, weta. Most ensiferan families were also found to be monophyletic, and the superfamily Gryllacridoidea was found to include Stenopelmatidae, Anostostomatidae, Gryllacrididae and Lezina.
Schizodactylidae and Grylloidea were shown to be sister taxa, and Rhaphidophoridae and Tettigoniidae were found to be more closely related to Grylloidea than had previously been thought.
The authors stated that "a high degree of conflict exists between the molecular and morphological data, possibly indicating that much homoplasy is present in Ensifera, particularly in acoustic structures.
More than species of Gryllidae true crickets are known. The folklore and mythology surrounding crickets is extensive.
However, another type of cricket that is less noisy forebodes illness or death. Souvenirs entomologiques , a book written by the French entomologist Jean-Henri Fabre , devotes a whole chapter to the cricket, discussing its construction of a burrow and its song-making.
The account is mainly of the field cricket, but also mentions the Italian cricket. Crickets have from time to time appeared in poetry.
Seaton begins "House cricket And yet how his mournful song moves us. Out in the grass his cry was a tremble, But now, he trills beneath our bed, to share his sorrow.
Crickets are kept as pets and are considered good luck in some countries; in China , they are sometimes kept in cages or in hollowed-out gourds specially created in novel shapes.
Cricket fighting is a traditional Chinese pastime that dates back to the Tang dynasty — Originally an indulgence of emperors, cricket fighting later became popular among commoners.
Crickets forced to fly for a short while will afterwards fight for two to three times longer than they otherwise would. In the southern part of Asia including Cambodia , Laos , Thailand , Vietnam , as well as in Mexico , crickets are commonly eaten as a snack, prepared by deep frying the soaked and cleaned insects.
Crickets are also reared as food for carnivorous zoo animals, laboratory animals, and pets. By the 19th century "cricket" and "crickets" were in use as euphemisms for using Christ as an interjection.
The addition of "Jiminy" a variation of " Gemini " , sometimes shortened to "Jimmy" created the expressions "Jiminy Cricket!
By the end of the 20th century the sound of chirping crickets came to represent quietude in literature, theatre and film.
From this sentiment arose expressions equating "crickets" with silence altogether, particularly when a group of assembled people makes no noise.
These expressions have grown from the more descriptive, "so quiet that you can hear crickets," to simply saying , "crickets" as shorthand for "complete silence.
