Cricket

Cricket is undergoing a revival of which its most diehard supporters could scarcely have dreamt of.

Millions were kept enthralled by Englandís Ashes success over the summer and youngsters across the country are picking up bats and buying replica kits as even their mums and grannies are now familiar with the names of Flintoff, Vaughan and Pietersen.

However the whole of Cricket has an annual turnover of less than that of Manchester United.

With just a scattering of spectators at most country cricket grounds how do cricket clubs stay in business? And how is cricket going to deal with its resurgence?
