    What do you think would make a good cricket movie?

    If there was to be a movie made about cricket, what players, moments or teams etc would you like to see?

    Bradman could be used I spose, but for drama I vote Warne.

    Also Bert Suttcliffe and Bob Blair's stand in SA after the bridge disaster I think it was where Bob Blair's wife died could be a good'un.

    Your thoughts?

    Oh yeah, that would be great! Also how about the 1999 WC semi, Aus vs SA?

    Absolutely. I'm surprised it hasn't been done by someone in NZ really. One of the most amazing things in NZ sporting history.

    Be difficult to make a movie about a single game. Besides with Bodyline they had the actual cricket, as well as the huge drama.

    True. I'm waiting for the Brits to come in and say Ashes 2005.

    Haha, but to be fair it's probably not a bad idea.

    Yeah it could be. In my biased opinion though it's Suttcliffe and Blair. Either that or bodyline.

    There wasn't as much drama off the field though, I suppose they could incorporate the mini-tornado and possible terrorist attack though.

    Wouldn't mind seeing at least a documentary about the events surrounding the '99 Chennai test.

    Or maybe Russell Crowe could be Dean Jones in his epic double ton in India. A sort of sequel to Gladiator.

    If it was a comedy they gotta have Andrew Jones talking in it.
