Coronavirus emergency cricket watching.

Most of us may end up spending numerous days locked away inside our homes with little to do due to the Coronavirus. With that in mind Sillypoint have put together the perfect playlist of videos for any cricket fan who is stuck indoors for an extended period of time.

So wash your hands, sit back on your pile of emergency toilet roll, crack open today’s tin of Baked Beans and enjoy.

Click on the Black boxes to head to the videos.

Ashes 2005

Watch the full 8 hour DVD boxset with the excellent channel 4 commentary team including Benaud, Nicholas, Boycott, Greig, Atherton and Slater.

Or if that’s too long why not go for the channel 4 Ashes Fever (pardon the pun) documentary and hear from the players and experts as they talk you through the greatest series ever.

1981

A spine tingling BBC 2011 documentary narrated by Stephen Fry looking back at the career of Ian Botham including an in depth look at 1981.

Or maybe you just want to go straight into the 25 min highlights of Botham’s Headingley innings.

Follow that up with the match winning spell from the late Bob Willis.

Sandpapergate

In 2018 the cricket world went into meltdown as the Australian cricket team was caught trying to scuff up the ball using sandpaper. Watch the documentary that highlights the events leading up to that day in Cape Town and the ramifications within Australian cricket.
