Cricket, for a while, was something golden. In the immediate post-war years people flocked to see county matches, filling out grounds such as Lord’s and the Oval for the derbys between Middlesex and Surrey. Then the crowds slowly seemed to peter out, as people left to follow football, this decline seemingly interrupted only by the spikes in interest that accompanied the 1981 and 2005 Ashes series, Botham’s and Freddie’s.
Well, the common phrasing of ‘two men and a dog’ to describe the attendance at county matches couldn’t actually be more wrong. Membership of clubs is on the rise and more and more people are going to see the games being played – in no large part thanks to the thrill a minute game of Twenty20.
The county game, finances aside, is in a really strong position. England are (currently) the number one test side in the world, and this couldn’t have come about without a fantastic first-class set up at domestic level. It’s high time that cricket in England got a newspaper style publication dedicated to bringing you all the latest news and views from this most gentlemanly of sports. Cricket is the true sport of our great nation – after all we are all for fair play, and when something goes against this it really just isn’t quite cricket, is it? Support the game by taking an interest in it at all levels, and there is no better way to do this than with The Cricket Paper. NB
