Two passionate journalists discover a devastating scandal during their in-depth exploration of the sport they adore.

In the twenty-first century, sport and corruption are inseparable. In the wake of revelations about wrongdoings at FIFA, this heartfelt doc about cronyism and racketeering in the world of cricket feels particularly timely.

Sports journalists Sam Collins and Jarrod Kimber – who co-direct and present – view the decline of test cricket as symbolic of the death of fair play in sport, and indeed the wider world. (You could argue that’s a dubious argument given cricket’s colonialist history.) But when they get into the unfolding scandals spreading from India to affect the game at large, their film is compelling, even for non-fans.

A must for lovers of Cricket.
