    161. Will The Hundred Work, with Nathan Hauritz & Ali Martin

    161. Will The Hundred Work, with Nathan Hauritz & Ali Martin

    The Hundred starts this week and the ECB have bet the house on it. Is it a moral and financial catastrophe or does Jos Buttler hit a big ball? Thankfully, The Guardian's Ali Martin joins to give the discussion some credibility. Meanwhile, everyone's playing white ball stuff with their two's and three's: England and India will win the club championship with that kind of depth, while Australia are nowhere. Will still bump and therefore beat England though, so there's that. Nathan Hauritz joins to talk about rep lids at grade level, replacing Shane Warne, and scenes from the cubicle after Cardiff. #AskTGC is a long-form epic detailing what many are calling "The perfect afternoon in New Zealand", only this one is ruined by a Gray-Nicolls jockstrap and box.

    160. One Mistake Here Boys, with Andrew McDonald

    160. One Mistake Here Boys, with Andrew McDonald

    Australia succumb to the West Indies, further confirming that we mainly lose now; we catch up with Andrew McDonald in the West Indies and ask if they can start winning, please; Meanwhile England's 2s and 3s dust Pakistan; India is set to dust Sri Lanka; but will any dusting be possible with COVID ripping through the UK? Can you put COVID in grade terms? Anyway, there's cricket everywhere else in the world, and AskTGC rounds us out with a meditation on, yes, Dad issues.

    158. MICHAEL HOLDING

    158. MICHAEL HOLDING

    A special, one-hour interview with Michael Holding about his new book, "Why We Kneel, How We Rise".

    It was pretty special to have the opportunity to speak with Mikey (and we will call him that), so much so that we've decided to give this week's cast over to the interview.

    We hope you find the chat as meaningful as we did.

    157. Kane Williamson Makes New Zealand Feel Safe

    157. Kane Williamson Makes New Zealand Feel Safe

    The Kiwis win the WTC Final against India in a great game of cricket, but are they good yet? Lara, Gayle and Yuvraj are playing some club cricket in Melbourne. Why? Maharaj takes a Hat-Trick in the West Indies. India and England women play out a draw in Bristol. The Men's Ashes might involves 4 months away from home for England.
