We begin with our rundown of the county game’s 50 greatest moments of the last 50 years, before matching up a handful of the best sides ever to have competed in the County Championship. We also take a peek behind the curtain at the lives of county umpires, and Australian journalist Melinda Farrell examines her country’s enduring love affair with the English domestic game.
  • Jo Harman revisits the joyfully chaotic series between England and West Indies of 20 years ago, when wickets tumbled in the blink of an eye and Nasser Hussain’s side embarked on a brighter future.
  • England captain Heather Knight talks to Phil Walker about the NHS, inequality and leadership.
  • Scott Oliver considers how and when recreational cricket can resume.
  • Jon Hotten tries to gets inside the head of James Vince, the most divisive English batsman of his generation.
  • We speak to Ian Bell about the peaks and troughs of his run-filled career.
  • Alison Mitchell recalls her first steps in broadcasting alongside an all-time legend.
  • Christopher Sandford takes us back to England’s hastily arranged series against the Rest of the World in 1970 and the dramatic sequence of events which led up to it.
