Sticky Wickets

This long running series featers Jonathan "Aggers" Agnew who is probably the finest Cricket broadcaster in the world. A great podcast for Cricket fans of English Cricket test matches who want to catch up on a quick summary. For expats, there's few things as nice as this. Put the kettle on and tune in.

I'll add this note from Wikipedia...
TMS has always had a distinctively irreverent style. Whilst it takes its role of describing and commenting on the action seriously, there has also been much light relief. Brian Johnston, who was as happy on the stage and working in light entertainment presentation as he was in the commentary box, was the master of this style which on occasion could lead to hilarity in the box, most notably on one occasion in August 1991 at The Oval when Agnew referred to Ian Botham's dismissal "hit wicket" as Botham "just couldn't quite get his leg over!" This remark led to the total collapse of both in a fit of giggles (which was followed quickly by Johnston's giggle-affected chastening, "Aggers do stop it!") This clip has become a broadcasting classic and is frequently replayed. In 2005 Radio 5 Live listeners voted it the greatest sporting commentary of all time.
