    Episode 359 - ENG v WI Review

    Episode 359 - ENG v WI Review

    Adam & Tony discuss the end to an excellent first post-lockdown Test series, as England complete the comeback and beat the West Indies 2-1. How did they turn things around? Did the Windies just run out of steam in the end? And is Stuart Broad's 500-wicket milestone the most important thing ever, or possibly a tiny bit overblown?


    Plus, thoughts on the upcoming Pakistan series and David Willey's comeback, and Tony poses for a dreamboat photoshoot.

    Adam & Tony look back on another excellent Test match at Old Trafford, where England bounced back to level their series with West Indies. Is Dom Sibley the real deal? Was Stuart Broad out to prove a point? And just how good is Ben Stokes?


    Plus, thoughts on West Indies' abrupt change in fortunes and whether it's the end of the road for Shai Hope, and we put our bodies on the line for the sake of the podcast in what is most certainly not a day at the beach.

    Adam & Tony discuss a terrific first Test between England and the West Indies, as cricket returns for the first time since the start of the pandemic.
    How good is it to have cricket again? Was it strange without a crowd? And should England get a free pass for an underwhelming performance, or should Buttler, Denly and co be in the spotlight?

    Episode 355 - Fire in Babylon

    Episode 355 - Fire in Babylon

    Adam & Tony review the sports documentary the whole world is talking about: Fire in Babylon. Charting the rise and eventual dominance of the great West Indies side in the late 70s and early 80s, it's a fascinating look at one of the great sports teams in history. Plus, it's a good excuse to lean further into nostalgia, this time for an era we weren't even around for.


    Also this week, thoughts on the ECB's plans to get the international summer up and running by July, and a brilliant email from a listener about a dream starring Tony Curr.

    Episode 354 - 2001: A Cricket Odyssey

    Episode 354 - 2001: A Cricket Odyssey

    Sinking ever deeper into nostalgia, Adam & Tony cast their minds back to 2001, and India's incredible series victory over Steve Waugh's great Australian side. At the time it was hailed as one of the best Test series of all time - 19 years later, does that still seem true? And can you trace the rise of modern Indian cricket back to that moment?


    They then jump forward a few short months to the summer of 2001, when Adam, Tony, and London correspondent Gordon Macrae were involved in some cricketing action of their own that was equally unforgettable.
