OPINION : There will be times over the coming five days when Stuart Broad is bowling to David Warner or Nathan Lyon to Alastair Cook, and it looks like Ashes cricket as usual.

But, as this illuminating feature-length documentary makes plain, it represented a lot more than mere mastery of leather and willow. British writer-director Stevan Riley picks up the story in the 1960s, as Caribbean n

WHY is Cricket West Indies tampering with history by renaming the only regional entity that has truly united us for more than a century? Sure, you can go ahead and tinker with the name of the governing body, changing it from the West Cricket Board to Cricket West Indies, although that won’t change most people’s perception of that divisive orga
