Documentary film titled, Death of a Gentleman directed by Sam Collins and Jarrod Kimber was premiered at the Sheffield International Documentary Festival on 8 June 2015. The film will also be screened in London in the fourth week of June 2015.

The documentary made in four years came into news as it raised questions on existence of Tests Cricket in 21st century.

It shows the decline of five day game which is the purest form of the second most popular sport on earth, representative of tradition, history and identity.  It narrates a story about greed, power, the endless pursuit of more and the precious things that are lost along the way.

Further, it raises the question whether the game is losing its identity due to a tough competition from commerce-driven Twenty20 cricket.

Death of a Gentleman shows interviews of ICC chairman N. Srinivasan, ECB chief Giles Clarke, and former cricketers Kevin Pietersen, Rahul Dravid, Ravi Shastri, Tony Greig and Lord Woolf among others.
