City firm Denton Hall has beaten three other practices to go into bat as lawyer for the 1999 Cricket World Cup in England. Dentons, which also recently gained work on the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester and for the Scottish Rugby Union, will be involved in all aspects of the cricket World Cup, ranging from the competition rules through to ticket distribution.

Barr-Smith, who has acted for a variety of sports bodies ranging from the Football Association through to the World League of American Football, said being interested and involved in a sport was an advantage when it came to pitching for work.
