A new world order is taking guard in cricket

International sport is naturally given to the creation of winners and losers, heroes and villains and, more often than not, a nailbiting helping of human drama.

But in 2008, the cricketing world dominated almost as many front pages as it did sports sections. Indeed, it may be remembered as the year when off-field considerations – the political intrigue behind the rival Twenty20 leagues, the multi-million dollar Stanford circus, England’s withdrawal – and ultimate return – to a terror-torn India – left the business of mere runs and wickets somewhat in the shade.

That is not to say that spectators have been denied their fair share of thrills and spills in the middle.
