Why sport matters

Standard

Cricket is first and foremost a dramatic spectacle. It belongs with the theater, ballet, opera and art … The players are always players trafficking involved in the elemental human activities, qualities and emotions – attack, defense, courage, gallantry, steadfastness, grandeur and ruse … Some of the best beloved and finest music is created out of just such elemental sensations … They are the very stuff of human life. C.L.R. James, Beyond A Boundary
