    Cricket at the Crossroads

    Cricket at the Crossroads

    In this feature we have an extract from a new book by Guy Fraser-Sampson that revisits English cricket in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

    Looks a good read. Thanks for the exerts. Believe Cowdrey should have been Captain of England. Illingworth came across as not being "a peoples person"

    Also The "Dolly" was a very underated cricketer. A test average round 40 odd is pretty good for the times and a useful change/partnership breaking bowler. If he played now would it be under Kolpak rules? I wonder

    I'm pretty sure Australia would've retained the Ashes had Cowdrey skippered the 1970/71 tourists - did you see much of the series JB? Did the batters go about their business with a different approach given that they were playing under that very batsman-friendly experimental LBW law?
