The Spirit of Cricket - A Sion College Zoom seminar with Mike Brearley
Thursday 20th May 2021: 7:00 for 7:30pm
Ex-England cricket captain Mike Brearley examines the 'Spirit of Cricket' and how the notion of a 'good spirit' can be applied more broadly than simply in cricket or sport.
Mike Brearley's brilliant The Spirit of Cricket, Reflections on Play and Life alternates between issues and examples within the game and broader issues such as the spirit and letter of the law. He explores how far what purports to be justice (in law or in spirit) may or may not be the expression of the powerful within the activity or within society.
Applicants to this Sion College seminar are asked on the application form to confirm their postal address. Attendees will be sent a copy of Mike Brearley’s book The Spirit of Cricket, (RRP £20), as well as a wine package during the week before the event.
