The Greatest Game to premiere on Sky Sports Cricket

November 2, 2022

Documnetary The Greatest Game will air on Sky Sports Cricket on November 5th and Sky Documentaries on November 6th – telling the story of England’s last-gasp victory over New Zealand in the iconic Super Over to win the tournament.

The Greatest Game dives deep into the personal experiences of the players that came to spectacular fruition in the most nail-biting final ever played: from Ben Stokes’ moving tale of personal redemption, Eoin Morgan’s journey from the Irish cricketing wilderness to the World Cup podium, Jofra Archer’s spectacular coming of age to Adil Rashid’s odyssey from Bradford backstreets to the Long Room at Lord’s.

The Greatest Game is written and directed by renowned documentary maker Ashley Gething (Universe, Civilizations, Diana Our Mother) and co-written by former cricketer Simon Hughes. The film is edited by the award-winning Owen Davies (Drive to Survive), whilst multi award-winning composer Lorne Balfe (Top Gun Maverick, The Crown) provides a stunning soundtrack. Victoria Barrell and Simon Lazenby of Sylver Entertainment, the team behind the critically-acclaimed ‘McEnroe’ produced the film with Starfield Films and Pitch Productions as co-producers and distributors.
