DBQ about Cricket

By allisonm4 May 05, 2014 264 Words
In order to further analyze the relationship between cricket and politics in South Asia, I would need an additional document, preferably written by an Indian Parsi regarding the role of cricket. While it is obvious the rivalries between Hindus and Muslims, the role of the Parsis is relatively unknown. While the Parsis were briefly mentioned as competitors in Document 5, it would be interesting to be able to read how their religious ideals changed or stayed the same when facing cricket and imperial rule, and whether or not they felt more competitive or more unified with other religions while playing cricket.It would be helpful to have newspaper articles written in WWI about Indian vs. English cricket matches as well as in the WWII period so we could see how the Indians reacted during those periods of anti-British sentiment. If there were stories of aggression between them on the cricket pitch, it could show how cricket was a way for the two groups to vent their frustrations upon each other. Document 4 is about Hindu high caste players who let in a low caste member into their team. Because they judged the player merely on his playing abilty and spirit, rather than his caste, it shows how the people cast political differences aside for the sake of the sport and are more unified. Document 10 is written by a Pakistani cricket official, talking about cricket in the countries [doesn’t count as understanding—but already had understanding from the topic sentence/grouping]. It shows how cricket unifies Indians and Pakistani through a shared love of the sport.
