Solution

'If' is the conjunction introducing the conditional clause 'all is lost', in which 'all' is the subject and 'is', the verb. The main clause, 'why am…cricket?' has 'I' as the subject and 'am playing' as the verb.
Therefore, 'If all is lost, why am I still playing cricket? ' is the correct option.
