    Handbags at Twenty Two Yards

    It is a sobering thought that it is now more than 30 years since it happened. In this feature Martin looks back at Dennis Lillee's infamous spat with Javed Miandad

    A(nother) great piece, fred.

    The background to the incident is fascinating; I for one was unaware of the bad blood that existed between the two teams that lead to the iconic "bat raised as if to strike" picture.

    Brilliant read about two great individuals. Good to see that they both had the best of compliments for each other after retirement.

    Loved it as usual fred. I know Cricinfo did a similar article on the incident, but the historical context you provided makes this the better read.
