Sorry to do this to you, dear Inside Sport reader and cricket-lover, but doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun watching cricket? We’ve searched the archives to find a bunch of images of players still very much etched in our minds, but long gone from the Cricket World Cup arena. Some for longer than you might think.

Among this lot are some real gems, like Geoff Boycott padding up in the nets for England ahead of the 1979 World Cup final, or AB looking rather pleased with himself and his Aussie young team-mates after capturing the 1987 trophy. Have fun reminiscing!
