This being Britain, we stop for Cricket,
We continue our journey after defending our wicket.
The story of cricket began in Britain in the eighteenth century before being exported and embraced around the world. Now it is a game watched and enjoyed by millions, especially during the heightened sporting drama of the Cricket World Cup.
In 2019 England and Wales have hosted the tournament and it has been a huge success with supporters from all ten competing nations filling the well-known cricket grounds. The power and passion played out in the middle has been cheered on in the stands while billions more enjoyed the action on television, radio and online.
The remarkable latter stages of the tournament will fill the home team and supporters with pride for many years to come. Don’t miss this chance to mark the 2019 World Cup and the wonderful game of cricket.
