Makers of film Death of a Gentleman (DOAG), a stirring documentary revealing the chilling details about the misgovernace of cricket under the Big Three regime, are set to draw further attention to their cause. A protest has been planned by the creators of the movie, Jarrod Kimber and Sam Collins, which will feature an observation of a three-minute long silence ahead of the fifth Ashes Test at The Oval, London. The move aims to generate greater public awareness about the pitiful state cricket’s administrators seem to be taking the game towards. Death of a Gentleman: Time to look at accumulated mess

“Now the A­shes have been decided, we feel the time is right to protest at the powerlessness of all other countries in the cricket world. Nobody has any power except Narayan Srinivasan, of India, Giles Clarke, of England, and Wally Edwards, of Australia,” Collins went on to detail the reason of the protest more precisely.
