    The Test Matchimonial

    Pads Off: Jimmy/Mattchin

    Pads Off: Jimmy/Mattchin

    As Jimmy prepares for his final Test match we wanted to conduct a well researched, informative, ground breaking, career-spanning, exclusive interview with England’s greatest bowler and there was only one man (available) for the job… step forward Mattchin Tendulkar.
    From a teenager in Burnley to bowing out at Lord's, Mattchin delves deep into the psyche of the most successful fast bowler ever. Warning: This podcast does contain an unusually high number of metaphors.

    Timeless, timeless, timeless…

    A ’timeless’ pod covering your emails, questions, talking points and correspondence of certainty and uncertainty - like a Martin Lewis-esque Cricket Saving Expert Special. Includes bat chat, a complaint, darts, Dr Who, Jimmy’s fear of cows and camping/caravanning cricketers.

    The Oscar Piastri Special

    The Oscar Piastri Special

    The Tailenders go on a ’school trip’ to the McLaren Technology Centre (MTC) to meet Australian Formula One driver and cricket fan Oscar Piastri.
    There’s an impromptu game of cricket on a somewhat uneven pitch, Oscar talks about his love of the game and gives the guys a tour of some of the classic McLaren cars on display.
    Plus Felix, who has never learnt to drive, gets some tips from Oscar on how to handle a Formula One Car before having a go in a F1 simulator.

    The USA canter to victory

    The USA canter to victory

    An Emergency Podcast of sorts. The Tailenders assembled last night to react to the USA’s shock win over Pakistan in the Men's T20 World Cup, this just a few hours after recording the podcast in the afternoon and saying how ‘unexciting' the tournament was. Plus we’re joined by Olympic Rowers and Tailenders Tom George and Ollie Wynne-Griffith as they prepare for Paris 2024.

Pads Off

As always a fantastic listen. Thanks a lot.
The interview with Jimmy was truly amazing, it was a mixture of styles:
- Parky
- Partridge
- Mr Tumble.
This is said with affection as it was truly insightful.
Keep up the good work lads.
Ps if you think it’s 45 minutes of Jimmy talking it isn’t (first question takes about 5 minutes to ask) but really worth hanging in there!

Go well

Cheers (for the pod, love it. Also, according to Mattchin Tendulkar’s latest quiz, Ollie Pope’s 195 against India never happened)

EDIT: The Oscar Piastri Special. The episode I didn’t know I needed more than anything.

This pod (and their friendship) saved my life
