    Shikha Pandey and the Quest for Women's Tests

    Shikha Pandey and the Quest for Women's Tests

    This episode we talk to someone who has played two Tests, hit the winning runs in one of them, and would just like to play more. Shikha Pandey is an all-rounder for India who has represented her country over 100 times altogether and when I asked her what she wanted to talk about, she said “Why women should play test matches. 😍” So this episode is about her experiences of trying to learn the game without playing multi-day cricket, why she believes the time is now, plus some views on women’s cricket changing the game, and why I believe she should retire from Test cricket.

    Yorkshire’s Teenage Tigers with Nick Friend

    Yorkshire’s Teenage Tigers with Nick Friend

    This episode we talk about Barney Gibson who was the youngest man to play first class cricket in England. He played for Yorkshire at 15, and then at 19 he retired to run nightclubs. But we also discuss Mark Broadhurst, another young gun Yorkshire player who had an early end to his career and who spoke up after reading about Gibson. So I got on the person that kind of united them. Nick Friend has written the stories about these men. We discuss Yorkshire, teen prodigies, parenting, life after cricket, the yips, retirement and the nightclub chain Tiger Tiger.

    Colin Ingram: Farming The Strike

    Colin Ingram: Farming The Strike

    This episode we have one of my favourite T20 players in the world to talk about his career so far. Colin Ingram has not had a straightforward career, at 23, he was without a pro contract and was thinking of going back to school to finish studying agriculture. But he stuck with cricket, and that seems to have gone pretty well. We chat about his ODI career, not seeing balls from really good bowlers, his premeditation, love of county cricket, being a Kolpak, and how he turned himself from a nurdler to one of the best T20 batsmen in the world.

    Steve Harmison: Fast Bowling Freaks

    Steve Harmison: Fast Bowling Freaks

    This episode we talk about fast bowling and accuracy, and how we see a lot more of both now. So I thought Steve Harmison might be able to help us with that. Fast bowlers have become more accurate and faster. We have 90 mile an hour bowlers with knuckle balls and wobble seams now. So this episode we talk bio mechanics, actions, preparation short versus tall, white balls and we skip bowling to second slip.

    All The Single Ladies with Karunya Keshav

    All The Single Ladies with Karunya Keshav

    This episode of Red Inker we look at the difficulties faced by Indian women cricketers. There is a book called The Fire Burns Blue all about this topic and so we got on author Karunya Keshav. We discuss players choosing marriage over a career, players choosing a career over marriage, and the few who have tried both. This is a story about women cricketers in India, but also the things they have to overcome. Societal pressures, miscarriages, working mother schedules, and so many other issues associated with being a woman athlete in India.

    Gareth Batty’s Spin Journey

    Gareth Batty’s Spin Journey

    This episode is with Gareth Batty, who has been a professional cricketer in four different decades. I always say Batty is one of the most pro pros in cricket I have met. In this episode we talk about his family history in the game, Yorkshire spin, Brian Lara’s effect on him, how he tries to coach players, and how he’s kind of had everything English cricket can throw at a spinner.
