“I find this series depressing, yet very engaging”

How’s that for a recommendation? That’s a Cricinfo comment about the fifth and final part of our short story set in the not-so-distant future.

If you can’t remember what’s happened already, here’s a full set of links.


  1. Bravo! This is your magnum opus.

    That’s not to say that your other opi are magnuless, just that if I was rooting through your oeuvre this is where I would look to find them.

    Well done.

  2. This makes me think of a piece of improve where the audience has requested “A dystopian story about cricket administration in the style of G.K. Chesterton”

  3. I refuse to be completely effusive in my praise for this series until Cricinfo re-publish part three so that it is longer than a paragraph and a half long. I’m assuming the article was originally longer than this, and has since been censored by high ranking Kiwi cricket-militia operatives. Until I can read this article in its entirety this series of works sits as either the worst sports administration based dystopian dramatisation I have read or possibly the best.

    But how can I know for sure!?

  4. Nice piece and all that, but would it kill you to throw in a graph or two in your cricinfo articles? A few lines of text and BOOM, a Venn appears out of nowhere and confuses the readers. Imagine that!

  5. Great series – shared with friends, and probably of interest to anyone with a healthy cynicism about “sports marketing.”
