First XI Cricket: Who Has Dominated the Decade?

It’s that time of year where it is difficult to escape the strains of Christmas music on the radio, Black Friday specials and tinsel in shopping centres. Thoughts are focused on how heavy the turkey is and for just how long it needs to be in the Weber. Groundsmen all around the country are enjoying the fact that the pitches can receive some much-needed attention and no wickets need to be prepared for the endless stream of matches demanded by the schools’ cricket programme.
