Cricket: Cricket’s big-screen revolution to end the blackout
Posted On August 9, 2021
It is a moment many can relate to.
For many years, I’ve been the only cricket fan in my family.
But I have always felt that I’m missing out on this great sport that I love and I’ve tried to get in touch with my friends to find out more about the world’s greatest game.
As a youngster, I was so obsessed with cricket that I would watch it on the TV every week, even if it was only for an hour.
That was until my mother came home from work one day and told me that she had seen my Dad playing cricket on TV.
“I can’t believe I didn’t know about this before,” she said.
Since then, I have been following cricket closely and I have watched many matches from around the world and have also tried to find any new cricket footage that I can.
I have also seen a few old clips, which was a good start.
But the cricket world has moved on and many people still can’t relate to the thrill of the game.
The first thing that I did when I saw the World Cup final was to start watching cricket again.
The format of the final was so different to what we saw during the last few years.
It was different because there was a new style of play, which involved batsmen attacking the bowlers in the middle of the field, with the batsmen then using their arms to take the wickets.
This was very different from the game I grew up with and my family always enjoyed watching the World Cups and I think this new format of cricket will help us to see the game in a different light.
This is why I think it’s so important to get the cricket community back together and celebrate the World Series as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first World Cup in 1920.
With the World Games coming to a close, the cricket fans around the country will be able to take a moment to reflect on the great past of the sport, and celebrate those who have made this game a part of our lives.
