    A conversation with Jack Shantry & Daniel Norcross on Umpiring and the Laws of Cricket

    A conversation with Jack Shantry & Daniel Norcross on Umpiring and the Laws of Cricket

    Jack Shantry is a former left-arm seam bowler who played for Worcestershire. He is currently a National Panel umpire in the UK.  Daniel Norcross is a cricket commentator on BBC Test Match Special.

    In this conversation we discuss the laws of cricket and umpiring, and how they constitute the game. Daniel talks about the difficulties arising from having to communicate a subtle, complicated, and often arbitrary set of laws to new audiences. Jack speaks from an umpire's perspective about why certain laws are the way they are, which laws bother him (the answer is most interesting) and where the switch-hit and the lbw law might lead cricket. We also discuss whether batsmen should be out LBW after an inside-edge (its not as mad as it sounds).

    Abhishek Mukherjee & Arunabha Sengupta on their forthcoming book 'Sachin and Azhar At Cape Town'

    Abhishek Mukherjee & Arunabha Sengupta on their forthcoming book 'Sachin and Azhar At Cape Town'

    This is my conversation with Abhishek Mukherjee and Arunabha Sengupta about their forthcoming book Sachin and Azhar at Cape Town: Indian and South African Cricket Through the Prism of a Partnership. Our conversation was recorded across three continents and is, in places, subject to the vagaries of inter-continental wireless communications. The book presents a rich picture of the protagonists of that stand (both Indian and South African) and the period they lived in.  This is a book not just about South Africa, but about a different era in Indian and world cricket.
