By Christopher Douglas, based on the real events surrounding the selection of Basil D'Oliveira for the England cricket team in the 1960s.
Having emigrated to England and been called up to the national team, D'Oliveira's one unfulfilled ambition is to be selected to tour against his native South Africa.
But the administrators of both South African and English cricket have other ideas.
