Much like the World Cup final in 1983 that set cricket on an inspiring and unforeseen path, 2019 may be another subtle yet pivotal moment for this global era. Following the events of July 14 2019, the world of cricket spoke in unison. Our conscious does not pick sides, it feels, it knows.
The handling of the 2019 moment by the International Cricket Council (ICC) is a choice and sets a tone. A moment of reflection since 2019, shows increased instances of self-interest around tours and schedules, often done openly without much reservations, and more contentious moments on the field. We can choose a path of spirit that leaves the game in a better place we inherited.
