In the last two weeks since the Covid-19 outbreak was officially declared a pandemic, nearly all sports have officially been halted. So what do we do in times of no cricket? We watch old cricket, of course. ESPNcricinfo's #RetroLive relives classic matches with real-time ball-by-ball commentary as if it were being played today - catch up on the 1992 World Cup final between Pakistan and England, for starters. Elsewhere, we're looking back at cricket history with 2020-vision and wondering if perhaps South Africa's cruel exit from the 1992 World Cup was portended, and if maybe Greg Chappell wasn't the monster coach he was made out to be after all. Catch up on all the non-match action from the fortnight here.

And Karthik Krishnaswamy revisits Greg Chappell's tempestuous two-years coaching India coach and wonders whether Chappell was really all that terrible a coach?
How have cricketers been spending their time in self-isolation? R Ashwin thinks there is a lesson in all this: that we take the game too seriously, as he spends time at home with his wife and kids, while Hanuma Vihari might be cheating a little on his diet as carbs come calling.
In a sport where the impossible often comes to pass, our writers look at what would have happened had things not panned out the way they did. For instance, what if Kane Williamson had won the 2019 World Cup?
