Raunak Kapoor is the best
Raunak Kapoor should be in all the episodes please!! So entertaining and informative
Almost as good as The Cricket Sadist Hour. So, it's terrific.
The anecdotes and analysis is generally better on this than all other cricket podcasts. And I've listened to all the major ones and still listen to many.
Must listen. Best cricket podcast out there. I do have a conflict of interest here in that I am related to one of the frequent hosts. But I really like folks like Srinath and Fidel.
