    The Test - Australian Cricket team Documentary

    Amazon Prime are doing it again and are releasing another sports documentary based around the post Newlands Australian cricket team. This one is being done as an 8 part series and is by the same people who produced/directed The Outsiders documentary on our great 2016 win (whcih I am still trying to get a hold of!)

    CricInfo have a couple of great articles on it. First episode airs on 11 Mar I believe. Am hoping that it is made available in the UK.

    The Test, camera crews followed the Australian menís cricket team in the 18 months following the darkest time in their history.
    With unprecedented access, cameras take you into the rooms for every moment as Australiaís greatest cricketers grapple with the notion of trying to achieve redemption for their team.


    Watched the first three episodes, great viewing.

    Yeah I have gotten through 1-3. It's really great viewing, and does well to humanise the team and others around it which is a hard thing to do given the carry on and adulation the Australian Cricket team has afforded itself over the years.

    Sedat is going to love how prevalent Gerard Whateley is throughout.

    Started watching it last night and found it much more absorbing than I expected. I wasn't sure they'd be able to sustain it over 8 episodes, but it's great so far, really well made. I didn't know it was the same mob who did The Outsiders.

    I am looking forward to the episode where Steve Smith gets knocked out during the ashes.
