The author reflects on the cricket game played by Gentlemen against the players in England. He stresses that the term Gentlemen was referred to people who played with crickets for fun, while the term players used to describe those men who played the game for a living known as professionals. With the fall of the British Empire, the final hurdle between Amateurs and Professionals was finally abolished.
