    Do a google search for "Wessel Johannes (Hansie) Cronjé" and enjoy.

    Depends on what you class as recent...

    The Packer stuff would be good...and what about when Botham took Imran Khan to court

    What about the Kolpaks?

    A legal precident concerning (IIRC) a Czech handball player (Mr Kolpak himself!) who earned his crust in Germany means that effectively any South African, Zimbabwean or West Indian cricketer can play in The UK as a non-overseas player. Kepler Wessels (now Northants coach) was saying during a lunch break in the 2nd test that Kolpak players must declare themselves unavailable for their international team; but this hasn't been legally tested & I doubt would stand up.

    Easily the best, really.
    The Cronje thing wasn't really that good IMO - too clear-cut.
    With the Packer schism it was an issue with two sides - you could understand the point-of-view of the players and Packer's company, but it still took the game to the edge of extinction.

    But ultimately it provided the biggest boost to evolve the game into what it is now.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    A boost that would almost certainly have been provided by something else in a very short time.
    The 1970s was that kind of decade.
    There were far better ways to improve the game than this sort of infiltration.

    It's another of Richard's ideas.

    Packer was a brilliant thing for World Cricket, and I actually think that without it, the game may no longer be around, certainly not as big (and professional) as it is now.

    Packer introduced the concept of players being able to afford to play Cricket for a living.

    I agree . Kerry Packer and the brains behind the idea Tony Greig have made it possible for Cricketers to be professional and earn a good living out of cricket, which was not possible pre-packer era.

    They have also made Cricket enjoyable to a greater number of people who did not and would not have become interested in the longer version of the game or its intricacies !!

    By intoducing the pyjama game they ensured more people would get interested in the shorter version and gradually , may be .... just may be...., some of them would carry their interest to the longer version as well.

    Icon14 Thank you

    Thanks people for your response.

    I guess the packer thingy is too old, I would like to have a mention to it in the essay but it will be in the early part. I would like to majorly concentrate 1995 onewards, I guess that is what recent means.

    SO here are the thigs I can concentrate on:

    1) Cronje
    2) Kolpaks
    3) Botham took Imran Khan to court (what was this about??)
    4) issues about media rights for cricket telecasts in most ICC countries
    5) Rebels tours of RSA during the "ICC apartheid stand off"
    6) Zimbabwe and its political situation
    7) intervention by the Federal Commonwelath of Australia into tobacco sponsorship of sport.
    -----------------------
    Can I also look at that below?

    8) Shoaib Akhtar thretening to take ICC to court if he was pulled up for chucking again and the whole chucking issue
    9) Sourav Ganguli going to court for his recent suspension
    10) Current dispute between the West Indies player and the board
    11) Recent dispute between the Indian/Srilankan palyers on contract issues with their respective boards

    Thanks all your suggestions are valuable...
    looking forward to hearng more views. Please let me know if I am missing out something important.

    Thanks again

    cheers!!!

    In spite of the fact that it had been managing fine for the last 100 years and more.

    A concept that was rather all-the-rage in many professions at the time, if you remember.
    It would have happened in cricket with or without his interference.

    It was dying a slow death and needed an influx of public interest to get it where it is, and that is exactly what Packer did.
