From the glory days when players fended off over-eager fans to the dressing room pranks and pedalo rides of more recent years, here are many humorous and classic cricketing moments from the 1960s through to the present day game. These great characters of the game tell their favourite stories and remember some of their most dramatic moments, linked and introduced by Jonathan 'Aggers' Agnew.
