Top-shelf cricket discussion

A well-balanced and expert take on the game from some of the games most respected voices. The Cricinfo journalists provide interesting and alternative viewpoints to the ex-players who consistently dominate cricket discussion in the mainstream media

Biased pathetic

I find this cricket podcast to have some promise. The real problem is with Mr Dobbel he is soo biased and it’s hard to believe much he says. The concept is great but his involvement ruins the entire endeavour

ludicrously pro-english

Usually decent journalist (Dobell, Miller) become cheerleaders on this podcast. One even suggested that Englands weakness is from 'having too many good players to choose from', yeah right. And don't ever expect an objective comment about Cook from Dobell.
