    201. The Death of ODIs, with Haris Rauf

    201. The Death of ODIs, with Haris Rauf

    Ben Stokes announces his retirement from ODI cricket after 104 matches for England, but is this the end of ODIs or will we still watch whatever is on TV regardless of the format? India win the ODI series in England 2-1, but all the talk is about Kohli. Is it time to move on? Will he make amends against Zimbabwe? The BBL Schedule is announced... yeah, there's a fair few games on but will Dave Warner be allowed to captain a team? Haris Rauf is on the show to tell us about his time playing 2nd Grade cricket in Sydney and #AskTGC asks a question about a possibly mentally disturbed former Australian A squad member.

    200. Penguins

    Australia's humiliating defeat in Galle leaves us to question if there is any fucking danger? Was it the umpires? Was it the reviews? Was it Sri Lanka's Colombo community breaking into the Presidential Palace to perform backflips in his pool? Was it that Sri Lanka played well? Hard to say. One thing we do know is that betting in Russia is in a good place after a few farmers in Gujarat put on on IPL showcase on YouTube. We ask, so what's the problem? In other news, Virat Kohli hasn't scored a ton in three years but is his currency in franking credits or the dwindling Bitcoin? Barney Ronay is on the show to discuss the fortunes of the English cricket team and what it all means. And finally, #AskTGC makes us ponder what celebrations to mimic on dance floors in Amsterdam, if any.

    199. Hiding In The Bushes, with Wes Agar

    199. Hiding In The Bushes, with Wes Agar

    England may have actually completed cricket with their 4th successive come-from-behind win, this time against India. The numbers are absolutely mind boggling. Minds have been boggled. Meanwhile, Australia won the first Test in Galle against Sri Lanka in about 45 minutes. Are we satisfied? Guess it means Australia have one foot in the WTC Final. With sincere thanks to NT Cricket for giving us access to him, we chat to Wes Agar live on deckchairs, sipping on mocktails about shifting tin, his roof, environments and what he was wearing when his brother Ash hit 98 on Test debut. #AskTGC continues the theme of trying to figure out what the hell is going on with Bazball.

    We're getting behind Budgy Smuggler's Ordinary Rig across the UK, and now France! Monsieur Ordinaire has taken France by storm, and you can get around both events by checking tickets at budgysmuggleruk.com or @budgysmugglerfrance on Instagram.

    198. I Don't Trust It, with Matthew Kuhnemann

    198. I Don't Trust It, with Matthew Kuhnemann

    Daryl Mitchell completes the perfect series with three consecutive hundreds in a losing side. NZ... what's doing? Bairstow turns into Bradman thanks to Baz-Ball and England are all of a sudden the greatest team in the world, despite having the exact same players as the ones that lost 17/18 Tests last year. We have trust issues. Australia are playing some mind-games with Sri Lanka... but why? Will Maxwell play? Will Steve Smith do something good? Why is everyone injured? Can Sri Lanka do the unthinkable? Matthew Kuhnemann is on the show to tell us about the teams he's played for and how his winter plans have changed because he now opens the bowling for Australia. #AskTGC questions if life can get any worse than this Thursday and Friday circuit.

Review of this show.

Very fun show. Good work fellas, keep it up!

Tightly curated lunch break

The cordial ratio’s are just so, the bbq shapes are baked not fried, and I’m generally both baked and fried when I listen to the episodes.

Good insight into this much maligned game, great guests, and even when being earnest by putting together a fitting tribute to the king S.K Warne they still manage to alpha me by bringing tears to my eye whilst I was driving and pulling up to the lights next to my friend on hoddle street and my mate seeing me crying in the next lane.

Cheers BOYS!
