From the early days of Test cricket to the immortalised handshake offered by Andrew Flintoff to Brett Lee in the Ashes series 2005, cricket has a history of extraordinary moments that embody everything that sets the game apart from any other.

The Spirit of Cricket remembers some of the outstanding performances, captivating matches and remarkable incidents that represent the glory of the sport.

Each entry gives the background to the match or moment, profiles of the key players involved and comment from legendary cricketing names.

Many of the entries themselves will be chosen by star cricketers, umpires, journalists and commentators – each choosing something that symbolises the spirit of cricket for them.
