9781852605322: A Century of Cornhill Tests

English cricket faced a crisis in 1977. The top players were so badly paid that they seemed easy prey for Kerry Packer who was offering the world's finest cricketers lucrative contracts to join his notorious cricketing "circus". This is the story of how the Austrailian media tycoon, one of the world's richest men, was stopped in his tracks by a little-known London-based insurance company. In 48 hours, with a #1 million sponsorship gamble, Cornhill changed the face of the English game. This work is published to celebrate a century of Cornhill-sponsored Test Matches, played over 18 years, telling the story from the decision by Cornhill to try raising its public profile via sponsorship. The story explains the deal - #1 million paid over five years to the Test and County Cricket Board - revolutionized the financing of what until then had been the poor relation of the sporting world. The book also includes a replay of each season, plus a profile of each of the nine captains - Brearley, Willis, Botham, Emburey, Cowdrey, Gooch, Gatting, Gower and the current skipper Mike Atherton.
