Beetles does cricket

May 31, 2011 in Events

‘‘… and once again we have interruption of play caused by movement behind the bowler’s arm.’’

Wit and Wisden: A Celebration of Cricket opens at the Chris Beetles Gallery in London tomorrow (June 1).

It features more than 200 paintings and cartoons from the past 200 years celebrating the clunk of leather on willow. Visitors can expect work by Glen Baxter, Tony Husband, John Jensen, Larry, Ed McLachlan, above, Matt, Nick Newman and many others.

Andrew ‘‘Freddie’’ Flintoff will officially open the show, which begins just days before the Sri Lankan Test Match at Lords. It runs until June 18 and will be unaffected by rain.
