Definitions for "1763 English cricket season"
The 1763 English cricket season was an important year for the future of cricket as it marked the end of the Seven Years' War. This meant that French influence in India was reduced to a handful of trading posts and its hopes of an eastern Empire were no more, though Bonaparte certainly tried to revive those hopes. Great Britain expanded its interests in India and the era of the British Raj and the consequent hegemony of cricket in Indian sport began.
