Read the groundbreaking report on the impact of climate change on cricket, and how cricket can rise to the challenge, from the British Association for Sustainable Sport (BASIS).
Hit for Six brought sport and science together, receiving global media attention, and praise from cricket legends including Shane Warne, Ian Chappell and Kumar Sangakkara.
This report represents a huge step forward. Its focus is on cricket, but it could be replicated for every sport as we will all be affected. BASIS exists with three goals in mind: to develop best practice and integrate sustainability into the sports sector; to encourage action and collaboration; and to use the influence of sport to educate our participants and fans. Put simply, our task is to build knowledge, confidence and momentum and transform it into action. In doing so, we may insulate the sports we love from the worst impacts of climate change and make a real contribution to solving humanity’s most pressing challenge.
