Brian McMillan: It was our first match after we came back to international cricket in 1991: at Eden Gardens, Calcutta. The number of people in one cricket ground - well over 90,000, excluding the police at the venue - and the noise were unbelievable. Having our country readmitted to international cricket in that atmosphere felt special. I thought: "This is it, we're back there." Clive Rice, our skipper, released a dozen doves from the middle before the game started, after which we took a lap of the ground. Photograph by PA Photos

Heave ho

Beefy has a ciggy

Daryl and Simon cuddle up

Nine and done

No courtesy, no pants

A hundred in Harare

Leap of faith

Last nail in the coffin

Two short

Crease occupation

A divine visitation

Pipped at the post

Fanning the flames

Booted out

Full metal racket

Muskets at dawn

To Kandy, chop chop

A lift for Vishy

The flight of Icarus

Another wet day at Headingley

Telling off the toffs

Out, damned stump

Vandals stopped play

The bowler's Holding, the stumps are flying

Pidge goes down low

The upstart and the king

Paradise regained

No. 264

In through the slamming door

Catch as catch can

The fall of Sir Garry

Dancers in the dark
