Eclipse Trivia

"eclipse stopped play" — This may be the only occasion when a cricket test match has ever been interrupted by an eclipse of the Sun. The Jubilee test match (celebrating the formation of the Board of Control for Cricket in India) between India and England took place on 15th-19th February 1980 in Mumbai. On February 16, 1980 a solar eclipse was due to take place on the Saturday afternoon, and the Indian Board, in agreement with the English team, decided that they did not want the responsibility of a crowd of around 50,000 people potentially damaging their eyesight by watching the deep partial eclipse of the Sun and declared the Saturday to be a rest day. The test match continued the following morning. For all of the cricket lovers amongst you, England won the match by ten wickets.
