“67 off 52” by Justin Eade.

Two Black Caps batsmen with a longstanding feud are thrown together in a World Cup Cricket Final against Australia, eight wickets down, needing 67 off 52. Throw in a sledging Aussie wicketkeeper, a long suffering South African umpire, allegations of match fixing, bodyline bowling, deliberate runouts, absurd mid-pitch arguments and a TV audience of one billion people, and it’s a combustible mixture threatening to explode at any time. Somehow the run chase continues though, with the bickering duo in the middle just managing to stay in the hunt despite each thinking the other is trying to lose. But when it’s revealed each of the four participants in the middle were approached by a shady ‘businessman’ in a Mumbai hotel room two years ago, it makes for a very interesting final few overs with the world watching on none-the-wiser. Who is guilty, who is going to win the game, and how will they get out of this ‘fix’ they have gotten themselves into?
