Airdate: The Test

Amazon Original documentary series, The Test: A New Era for Australia’s Team, screens in March.

The Test is a behind-the-scenes look at how one of the world’s best cricket teams fell from grace and was forced to reclaim their title and integrity.

Picking up immediately after the incident in South Africa that led to an outpouring of disappointment and shock around the world, The Test begins with the appointment of Justin Langer as coach and follows the Australian Men’s Cricket Team around the world. With unprecedented access, The Test gives viewers an inside look into the highs and lows of the long road back in the team’s fight to regain the respect of world cricket. From a tough run in the short-form of the game, to their first ever Test series loss to India on Australian soil, the fans journey with the team as they rally and rise to a successful World Cup campaign and battle against England for the 2019 Ashes series.

  1. wow, ok. is this just in case the extended interviews with Steve Smith and David Warner being aired on channel 7 don’t prove to be enough to repair their image? this isn’t anything other then Cricket Australia funded propaganda.

  2. Interesting that it’s made by Cricket Australia Films with Whooshka Media (better known for adverts than documentaries) yet branded as an Amazon Original.

    Can hardly be considered a ‘documentary’ in terms of editorial impartiality if you fund, and make a show about yourself.
