    156. Serves Them Right, with Adam Hollioake

    Shakib Al-Hasan kicked some stumps over and we'll tell you why he was right to do so. England can't bat anymore and New Zealand still aren't being respected. South Africa are good again, for now. Adam Hollioake talks about facing Warne, the abandoned match in Kingston in 1998 and England's current batting woes. #AskTGC discusses youth multi leaders in South Sudan and 11 year old Scottish prodigies.

    Life Outside Cricket: Peter Hatzoglou

    Life Outside Cricket: Peter Hatzoglou

    Two seasons ago, Peter Hatzoglou was playing for his club's third XI. Now he's mixing it with the world's best T20 players, attracting comments from Shane Warne cooing over his IPL prospects.

    Now that he's sometimes on TV, does that mean nothing matters anymore? Will he shelve all other plans? Will cricket last forever? Let's find out.

    Our interview with Peter is the final instalment in our Life Outside Cricket series. Huge thanks to our interviewees, to the ACA for their partnership, and thanks to those who've tuned in.

3 loveable idiots talking smart cricket

Marvellous listening.

TimHooo ,

Good start boring finish

Really enjoy the analysis at the start of each episode, insightful thought hidden within blokey humour. I don’t listen to the try hard ask tgc section at the end though

clarriegrimmett's love child ,

Better as a menage a trois

Still good, but like so many things, the earlier versions (i.e. before Dave got the boot) were better.
Also, the constant pushing of the “premium” patreon content is irritating. Can’t you just ask budgie smugglers for more sponsorship $$$$$.
Whinge aside, still one of the two podcasts I keep an eye out for every week at the anointed time.
