“No country which has cricket as one of its national games has yet gone communist.”

Cricket has a long and complicated (though often symbiotic) relationship with leftist politics.

This site compiles political sportswriting, writing on sport as politics, and the lives of those who sought (or seek) to synthesize sporting bodies with the body politic.
