    Ep. 104: India's All Time Greatest Test and ODI XIs

    Ep. 104: India's All Time Greatest Test and ODI XIs

    DJ, Varun and Ashwin are back and in this age of no live cricket, they have given themselves the unenviable task of picking India’s all time greatest teams. The first half is all about the test game, whereas the second half is ODIs.
    The debate gets heated. Tough questions are asked including:
    -Why does DJ drop VVS Laxman from his test XI halfway through the show?
    -Why does R Ashwin make Varun’s GOAT XI but not play India's next test?
    -Why is Viru in the ODI GOAT XI for both Varun and Ashwin?
    -Does Bumrah make the cut in tests or ODIs?
    -Do all our podcasters have way too much recency bias?
    Each podcaster's teams are available at https://1tip1hand.com/cricket/indias-all-time-test-and-odi-xis/

    Ep. 103: In Conversation With Jarrod Kimber

    Ashwin and Varun are joined for a very special conversation with Jarrod Kimber - journalist, author, commentator, filmmaker, and much more.
    Jarrod shares his journey with the game of cricket, from the early days of being part of a cricketing family, to his journey creating Cricketwithballs, eventually to an illustrious career with ESPNCricinfo.
    He then talks about his experience creating Death of a Gentleman, a 2015 Cricket Documentary about the big 3 countries and their role in the ICC. He shares some great anecdotes about Lalit Modi as well.
    As an extra surprise, Jarrod Kimber shares some great anecdotes about Rahul Dravid too! Be sure to tune in.

    Ep. 102: Cricket in The Time of Coronavirus (feat. Gulu Ezekiel)

    Ep. 102: Cricket in The Time of Coronavirus (feat. Gulu Ezekiel)

    DJ is joined this week by Varun and Ashwin, who are both recording from their Delhi home. First up Ashwin gives an update on Varun’s exploits in their gully cricket tournament (or lack thereof). They then discuss the various cricket cancellations this week and IPL 2020 being suspended/postponed by the BCCI because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Of course, Sanjay Manjrekar’s sacking from the BCCI commentary panel comes up - was there any political motivation behind the decision? Also a new Amazon Prime documentary called “The Test” is recommended with a focus on how the Aussies view King Kohli.
    The second half of the podcast is a great chat with Gulu Ezekiel, author and cricket journalist. On Gulu’s podcast debut, Gulu and DJ discuss his days of covering domestic cricket, the recent Ranji Trophy final (between Saurashtra and Bengal) and his favourite cricketer across the decades. They also discuss his collection of 1500 cricket books and his upcoming books on Indian cricket - “Speed Merchants” and “Mythbusters” - before wrapping with some book recommendations.

    Ep. 101: Choke de India?

    Ep. 101: Choke de India?

    DJ is joined by Ashwin from New York this week to discuss the India v Australia T20 World Cup final. They discuss the lead-up to the big day and how everything went wrong for Team India in a match that was watched by 86,174 people at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and by millions all over the world on International Women’s Day. They also analyse the team’s performance over the course of the tournament, including the positives to emerge for a young Indian team.
    After the break, they discuss what ails Indian teams in knockout matches of ICC tournaments before talking about the big inclusions/exclusions from the Indian squad for the 3 match ODI series against South Africa starting on March 12.

    Ep. 100: The Hundred

    Ep. 100: The Hundred

    It’s another full house this week with Varun, Ashwin and DJ as we raise our bat after scoring our maiden ton (the only century scored during the New Zealand v India test series!). It’s also our second year anniversary episode so we get excited, emotional and also a little nostalgic in turn.
    But there is work to be done so we discuss India’s disastrous 2-0 series loss against New Zealand (first series loss during the WTC). We go over the opportunities wasted by Indian batsmen in the first and second innings, poor use of the DRS and once again India’s inability to get the tail out hurting them in the final analysis.
    We also rant a little more about India’s intent problem and its selection and team management issues with a focus on Ishant’s injury and swapping Ashwin for Jadeja. We then wrap the series with our thoughts on Kohli’s intense press conference where he snaps at the reporter asking him about swearing at Kane Williamson and the Kiwi crowd.
    In the second half of the show we talk about our favourite century from childhood and the Women’s T20 World Cup where Team India has topped the group and will play the first semi final. Finally Ashwin hosts a quiz about centuries for Varun and DJ.
    Enjoy!
