However, the globalization of cricket has not followed a pattern familiar in other sports: concentrations of wealth, media, and marketing leading to the domination of Western countries over the rest, and this fact alone makes it interesting for scholars of the globalization of sport.
Cricket has followed a very different global path; the non-Western countries former British colonies have begun to dominate and have taken control of the economics and politics of the game. The globalization of cricket has received a massive boost from the popularity of the newest form of the game Twenty20 which is helping promote cricket as a mass TV sport. The rise of Twenty20, particularly the Indian Premier League IPL , is transforming the way cricket is organized, played, and watched all over the world.
Cricket and broadcasting explores how the significance of radio and television to cricket in England has grown since the beginnings of broadcasting. Since the Second World War cricket has been increasingly shaped by its relationship with broadcasting which has been a force for conservatism and change. Representations of cricket on radio and television have done much to determine levels of interest and participation in the sport.
Major changes such as the growth of the limited-overs game, the expansion of international cricket, reforms to County Championship and the rise of sponsorship were dependent on support from television, and income from television has enabled county cricket to survive as the highest form of domestic cricket in England. This accessibly written book will be essential reading for scholars and students of sports history, social and cultural history, and media studies. If that volume failed to totally convince you that the sport is designed to disturb, dismay and disgruntle in equal measure, then maybe it was because it only scratched the surface.
Reviews for the book Outside edge : an eclectic collection of cricketing facts, feats & figures
The book takes another humorous look at the whole catalogue of malevolence, misadventure and madness associated with the sport — corruption, violence, drunkenness, incompetence — on and off the pitch! Following On tells the stories of 14 English cricket World Cup winners — in , as Unders, they had tasted global triumph — against the exciting, lucrative landscape at the end of cricket's first decade of the millennium. Graeme Swann and Owais Shah began in pursuit of England ambitions. Robert Key and new Twenty20 hero Graham Napier awaited their country's call, while others worried about the viability of county cricket.
Observing Ashes heroics from packed stands at Lord's, clashes with county committees, death threats and altogether smaller dramas at rural club grounds, Following On offers a fascinating insight into the cricketing profession, and the English game as a whole. Tony Greig is remembered as the colourful captain who led cricket into its biggest crisis of the last century.

An all-rounder who mixed boldness with belligerence, he was the first South African to skipper England, restoring national pride with victory in India after poundings at the hands of Australia and the West Indies. More than three decades later, now a leading television commentator, Greig has never been fully absolved. Featuring many new interviews, including with Greig himself, the book asks whether cricket history judges the accomplished all-rounder fairly, or is coloured by off-field controversies. Tony Greig offers a compelling portrait of a fascinating cricketing era — and was shortlisted for Best Cricket Book at the British Sports Book Awards.
English cricket fans will love Jarrod Kimber's second Ashes book, Australian Autopsy — Australian cricket fans perhaps less so! He travels around his homeland staying in flea-bitten motels, bonding in a beautiful bromance with fellow cricket writer Sam Collins, and getting whispered at by Cricket Australia officials. He dreamed not just of bowling to Tendulkar, but of actually knocking over his off stump.
Just one problem: he was never really much of a cricketer.
A hilarious summer ensued as he attempted to live out his fantasy, fending off the attentions of over-zealous fellow fans, crazed Italian spiritualists and his meddling best friend — not to mention the dozens of blazered officials and luminous-jacketed stewards standing between him and his hero. Throughout the s, England lurched between the highs of Ashes victories and the lows of on-field humiliation and a series of controversies involving tabloid scandals, South African rebel tours and Pakistani umpires.
There was even a World Cup Final appearance in India. Yet twice the West Indies inflicted series defeats.

Players were fined for bad behaviour on the field, while Ian Botham was suspended for smoking marijuana. Lord's stumbled through ten changes of captaincy in the decade. In , Gatting, under pressure following an umpiring row, was brought down by a barmaid, leading to the appointment of four skippers in one series. It was the most chaotic period in English cricket history. Thanks to his discovery of a collection of scrapbooks and memorabilia, writer and filmmaker Michael Burns is able to relate for the first time the remarkable story of Surrey and England cricketer Jack Crawford.
A schoolboy prodigy who took Edwardian cricket by storm, the amateur all-rounder became Surrey's youngest ever centurion and, at 19 years and 32 days, England's youngest Test player. However, a row over captaining a weakened team against the Australians led to a spectacular fallout - and a life ban by his county. Emigration to Australia ensued, where Crawford established himself as one of the world's great all-rounders; yet controversy dogged him, on and off the pitch.
Having married and deserted an Adelaide teenage beauty, Crawford then dodged involvement in the Great War.
