Cricket breaks by coach

Nothing epitomises the English summer quite like the sound of leather on willow at a cricket match.

Once the football season has finished, the cricket calendar takes centre stage with a variety of international and county matches and formats running throughout the summer months.

Whilst Test match cricket is still perceived by many as the purest form of the game, the shorter 50 over one-day matches and T20 formats (Indian Premier League, Australia Big Bash League and T20 Blast) have helped to swell audience figures and attract new younger supporters to the sport.

No longer can cricket be described as boring. Today the game is truly thrilling and captivating, characterised by explosive shot play, boundaries galore and incredible catches, combined with plenty of razzmatazz off the field to create a brilliant atmosphere and spectacle.

The resurgence in popularity of the game has also been helped by England’s success over the past decade, not least the incredible Ashes victories over Australia, which helped make players like Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Joe Root and Ben Stokes household names.

Whilst you can watch the biggest cricket events on television, nothing beats being part of the action and watching it live in person to cheer every boundary and wicket, join in every LBW appeal and hear the “oohs” and “arrghhs” of close chances reverberate around the ground.
