TextThis property is a special property in this wiki. <p>While others see cricket as takin <p>While others see cricket as taking its name from the term for a staff, or stick, "[T]he famous <i>New English Dictionary</i> favors a word used as a [game's] target: <u>criquet</u>. Du Cange quotes this word in a manuscript of 1478: 'The suppliant came to a place where a game of ball (<i>jeu de boule</i>) was played, near to a stick (<i>attaché</i>) or <i>criquet,'</i> and defines <i>criquet</i> as 'a stick which serves as a target in a ball game.'"</p> <p>Du Cange, <u>Glossarium Mediae ET Infimae Latinatis</u> [Paris, 1846], Vol. 4: Mellat, Vol. 5 Pelotas. Per Henderson ref 48.</p> Pelotas. Per Henderson ref 48.</p>
