    196. The Ginger Century, with Liam Livingstone

    196. The Ginger Century, with Liam Livingstone

    YJB was absolutely sensational, Root is the best player ever (at the moment) and Stokes is the captain that England need. But just how bad were New Zealand? Australia are doing good things in Sri Lanka, but will we remember any of this unless Tim David is selected and we feel safety in the size of the men that represent the country. South Africa are winning against India B, not that any of this matters, because the IPL rights just got sold for $5.1billion USD. Wouldn't mind a slice. Liam Livingstone is on the show to tell us how and why he swings so hard and #AskTGC involves a young law clerk being caught in a lie.

    To help amplify Budgy Smuggler's quest to find the UKs Most Ordinary Rig, we want your "Rig Confessions". Head to www.speakpipe.com/tgc to give us 30 seconds on what your rig means to you.

    Details on the competition here:
    · Entrance is open until June 12th.
    · To enter, post a pic on Insta or FB that captures your personality in Smugglers with #BudgySmugglerUK and @BudgySmugglerUK.
    · The Finale is in London July 2nd... it will be a Victoria's Secret meets Miss World Style Pageant.

    We're looking for rigs who meet the following criteria:
    · Good to have beers with
    · Can still run for a taxi and swing an axe
    · Looks like they were good at sport at some point in their lives but were prevented by injury or poor coaching selection at a young age
    · A six pack is an automatic disqualification (unless you are carrying it)

    What you win:
    · A 12 month Modelling Contract with Budgy Smuggler
    · A Billboard in their hometown... "Welcome to Town X, Home to the UK's Most Ordinary Rig"
    · All expenses paid trip to Australia in 2023 to compete in the World's Most Ordinary Rig.

    195. They're Still Booing Root, with Todd Murphy and Ali Martin

    195. They're Still Booing Root, with Todd Murphy and Ali Martin

    Is England back or was this 2s v 3s? Root's the best, Broad's vibrations, "team hat-tricks" are for children. Ali Martin lends much needed credibility to all of this. Australia plays Sri Lanka in the big one, same goes India and South Africa. 21 year old Todd Murphy was playing at Kahlin Oval in Darwin a fortnight ago, now he's in Sri Lanka with Australia - he joins us to detail his approach to bullying and aesthetics. The ICCs head honcho says Test cricket doesn't make heaps so, you know, be grateful for what you've got. #AskTGC is about whether one can unbeta oneself.

    192. Away Days, with Brett Lee and Mitchell Swepson

    The men don't normally win those ones, the women keep winning, England sink further, the IPL is flashy colours and throbbers, Brett Lee talks wheels, circuits, and his podcast, Sweppo joins us from Lahore, and #AskTGC is about Father-Son penis politics.

Hogpile on the 5 stars

Incredibly funny hosts, don’t take themselves too seriously when discussing cricket. Quality banter. No matter what country you’re from if you love cricket you’ll like this podcast. Lots of good interviews too with current and ex players
