Description

As the world's second most popular sport, cricket is much richer and more diverse than many realise. Globally, passionate players make sacrifices to play for their country. These extraordinary tales of cricket in Afghanistan and Ireland, Kenya and the Netherlands resonate far beyond cricket, touching on war, sectarianism and even women's rights.
