The Edge

Yesterday evening, I watched The Edge, a short film about the England cricket team’s recovery under Andy Flower to become the number one team in the world. It was slightly gimmicky: archive footage mixed with present-day interviews, strangely intercut with reconstructions of mental breakdown (KP and Jonathan Trott) and shots of Jimmy Anderson running on a beach. A must for cricket fans, though, and left me with an increased admiration for anyone who plays Test cricket.
