The World Cup that changed (almost) everything

The World Cup that changed (almost) everything


In the latest 81allout podcast we rewind to one of the mostly fondly remembered World Cups – from 1992.

Why is this such a beloved tournament? Has there been a better collection of cricket jerseys at one event?

We talk about Mark Greatbatch’s sixes, Martin Crowe’s innovative tactics, Srikkanth’s duck against New Zealand, Raju’s premature celebration, David Boon’s square cuts, that Jonty Rhodes run-out, Srinath’s ball to Miandad…

Not to forget, the strange rain-rule. And those two balls from heaven.
