    Final Word XI match in Sydney on the 26th

    Final Word XI match in Sydney on the 26th

    Hello all - a reminder for Sydney folk to come down to Birchgrove Oval near Balmain on Wednesday the 26th if you want to be part of some safe wholesome outdoor fun. A beautiful turf wicket by the harbour.
    An XI of Final Word listeners captained by Geoff will be taking on the Newtown Browns captained by Peter Lewis, playing 30 overs a side with an estimated start time of 11am. We will likely be there through the afternoon enjoying some Brick Lanes and good company.
    The weather is set fair, and anyone is welcome, for the debut Australian outing of the TFW XI.

    Virat Kohli hands back the crown - with Harsha Bhogle

    Virat Kohli hands back the crown - with Harsha Bhogle

    Season 11, Ep 13: It didn't seem like it would happen for years, but it happened quickly in the end. Virat Kohli is no longer India's captain in any format, resigning from the Test job after a hard-fought 2-1 loss in South Africa. He burned fiercely and for a long time, but perhaps in the end burned out. Harsha Bhogle has watched Kohli's life more closely than most, and joins us to help understand it. Also, men's Ashes aftermath and women's Ashes instability.

    Aotearoa is Tigerland as Rossco says goodbye

    Aotearoa is Tigerland as Rossco says goodbye

    Season 11, Ep 12: While we were busy in Sydney, Test cricket was going off elsewhere. Bangladesh! Completed a magnificent win in New Zealand, which felt entirely more important than a less magnificent loss to follow. But the second match said farewell to Ross Taylor, after so many years as the core of the Kiwi order. Also, India are in the middle of a ding-dong battle in South Africa. And the women's Ashes and World Cup could both be in some strife.

Independent Thinkers

Adam and Geoff deliver their opinions on cricket both on and off the field. They do not pander to the agendas of boards or officials and, as such, deliver a balanced view on the issues of the day.

With ‘story time’, they also dive into the oddities regarding the history of the ‘great game of cricket’, which, over the past two years, has been a welcome and funny distraction from the dumpster fire of the real world.

They have to go to India, you gotta pick ‘em.
