Chris Broad, Pat Murphy and Mike Coward join Gary Naylor to discuss England’s triumphant tour of Australia in 1986/87 which saw the Ashes retained and limited overs success to boot. Broad himself hit three hundreds to help Mike Gatting’s team hang on to the urn. There’s fascinating insight from inside the England camp, terrific analysis on the struggles of Allan Border’s Australia and copious name-dropping in connection with the tour’s active social scene. The quartet also talk about the career and qualities of the much-missed, “incomparable” Malcolm Marshall, who stood out even amongst his West Indies fast-bowling contemporaries as a true great.
