Liverpool Echo – After a bleary-eyed winter of following England’s up-and-down fortunes, and that strangely compelling Mumbai Indians documentary on Netflix, the 2019 cricket season is nearly upon us.

Summary

  • And on Merseyside – a world away from the glitz and glamour of the IPL – the skippers of two of the sides in the Liverpool Gin Liverpool Competition Division Two are hoping the new season brings a fresh start.
