The Political Game
Topics to be discussed: Cricket as a point of crisis, e.g. Bodyline series, boycott of SA, England / Zimbabwe, India / Pakistan
Why did 'Bodyline' cause such a outcry?
What is the relationship between sport and politics?
Why does cricket seem to be more involved than other sports?
How effective are sporting boycotts?
