  3. 3. 1. The exact origins of the use of a X to end races are lost in history, although there are many theories. A possible though unlikely theory is that horse races during the early days of the settlement of the American Midwest were followed by large public meals and that to signal that the meals were ready and racing should come to an end, a __________ tablecloth was waved. Another origin theory claim is that the X's earliest known use was for 19th century bicycle races in France. A more likely explanation is that a high-contrast flag would be more conspicuous against the background of a crowd, especially when early races were run on dirt tracks. The earliest known photographic record of a X being used in a race was from Long Island, New York in 1904 at the inaugural Vanderbilt Cup race. X?
  4. 4. 2. X became the first professional player to feature on the cover page of gay magazine Attitude when he posed nude for October’s issue of the magazine. He went on to add : "There's a perception of lots of committees and old men being quite prim and proper, but I think the game is moving with the times. From my point of view, I think doing this could be fantastic for cricket. Hopefully this will attract a new sort of fan. If there are any gay cricketers, they should feel confident enough to come out, because I don't think there is homophobia in cricket. Cricket fans are generally there to watch the game and support their team.“ X?
