Why Cricket Is No.1
This picture for me will be the photo of the match. Yes, cricket is played hard, in a competitive fashion, but at the end of the day all the competitiveness and aggression is left on the pitch.
After his team won, Flintoff did the sporting thing and went to console Lee, as well as applaud his heroics.
This is why cricket heads the list of sports in my table. Cricket teaches you all the lessons of life, of teamwork, of partnerships, of taking responsibility - moreover, it's the only sport with SPIRIT. This is why when something unfair or unsporting happens, people say, "That's not cricket".
