Description

Remember a time when cricket was cricket? Before millionaire players careered around a floodlit field in glorified pyjamas? When a proper match lasted days rather than the crash, bang, wallop of a limited-overs game? Modern innovations like Twenty20 and IPL have their place in cricket's long and glorious story, but nothing beats the original game!
