After the editor of All Out Cricket magazine chanced across my piece 'What can The Big Lebowski teach us about cricket?', he asked whether I could provide a series on that theme – essentially, delving into well known movies and finding tenuous cricket connections. Of course, being poor and faintly desperate, I answered in the affirmative. Cue not a very cost-effective trawl through several cult movies listening out for mentions of "backward point" or "leg glance" or somesuch. Anyway, I managed to shoehorn The Matrix into this preposterous schema and have since submitted (a better) one on This Is England.
Have a read.
