Old cricket footage you would like to see

One thing I would like to find is Brett Lee's finger pointing to the dressing room to a tailender in only his second Test match.
A guy who was still finding his feet in international cricket. I speak of New Zealand's Shane Bond!!!

Sutcliffe hitting six after six after six, and is joined by Bob Blair in the Christmas test of '53 against the Proteas.


always enjoy seeing Punter getting mad after being run out by a substitute, then getting mad at an umpire (with Siddle) after a DRS against KP is denied

Yeah at like 9/510 or something. Urgh, was gross.

I'd like to see more of Clarrie Grimmett and Bill O'Reilly. Both are meant to be incredible spinners and so it would be nice to have seen them with better quality footage.

Anything with Sydney Barnes would be the ultimate find though.

Viv demolishing 61 runs in 35 balls in the 4th innings of a test match vs India when the required rate was 8 rpo. Won with 4 balls left.

The WG Grace refusing to go out when bowled (if true) - "they've come here to see me bat, not you umpire." :laugh:

forever hilarious.

I wonder whether more recent matches that were definitely televised (say from 1975-) can be purchased in bulk or is available to watch somewhere.. a video archive of all available matches if you will.

Like many I would love to see footage of Sydney Barnes bowling in his prime. With hawk eye and slow mo to watch exactly what he did with it! Fast swinging leg breaks!

I looked at the cricinfo Indian all time 11 and lots of the players in that weren't on YouTube, so I'd like to see them.

Subhash Gupte would be a cool one to see also.

Definitely would love to see Mohammed Zahid's full over to Brian Lara in the Carlton and United Series of 96/97 - before the back injuries that unfortunately cut short his career.

Both Hooper and Lara claim he was the fastest bowler he has ever seen, as does his fellow haywire Shoaib Akhtar.
