    Afghanistan’s Last Almost

    Afghanistan’s Last Almost

    This week we’re adding a bonus episode on Afghanistan, the most likely team to beat England in the next few years. This is not a standard Double Century, it’s not a written and narrated piece. It’s just me talking about Afghanistan, how they almost beat England and wondering if they’ll get a chance again.

    Sri Lanka's Way

    Sri Lanka's Way

    We're back! This week is Sri Lanka’s turn beating England. By this point Sri Lanka were a World Cup winner, and still, England were only giving them a single Test. So they made that Test count in a style of their own making.

    Season 3 postponed due to Injury

    Bad news folks, Jarrod came off his skateboard on the way home from commentary on the England Vs. India Test Match last week, and has broken  his arm, and Michael Clarke didn't even give him the chance to get ready for it.

    He is unable to write for the short term, and we are investigating options to allow us to continue. 

    We'll be sure to let you know when we can get going again, we really appreciate your support and your listenership so far this season, which has been far and away our most popular. We encourage you to check out the previous 2 seasons, and we'll be back as soon as possible.

    South Africa's Broad-Shouldered All-Rounders

    South Africa's Broad-Shouldered All-Rounders

    This episode is focusing on when South Africa defeated England for the first time. It includes their first Test win, and then also their first series win. And what makes it all the more remarkable was how poor they had been before, how much wrist spin they had on their team and because the Boer War had only just finished.

    When Scotland Swept England

    This episode it is Scotland's turn. A proud small cricketing nation who has produced players for England, and then suddenly decided to grow themselves. We talk to Calum MacLeod, who made a few that game, on what turned out to be an incredible day for the team that always seemed to miss its chance.
