A new era for cricket in post-earthquake Christchurch

Resume Play tells the story of cricket in the Garden City, how it was affected by the quakes, and the controversial development of Hagley Oval into a world-class ground that hosted the opening match of the Cricket World Cup.

Produced by Canterbury Cricket with support from the Sport New Zealand, it features interviews from club cricketers, city leaders, “backyard cricketer” Prime Minister John Key and many of New Zealand’s leading players, including Sir Richard Hadlee, Stephen Fleming and Tom Latham.
