When cricket was a classical sportmain
In our tribute to the heroic England fast bowler Bob Willis, who died yesterday, we mentioned his love of Wagner.
His captain in 1981, Mike Brearley, was a Beethoven man who hummed opening bars of a Razumovsky quartet as he faced the world’s fastest bowlers.
Does any cricketer today listen to classical music?
Has any of them heard of Beethoven?
