    Why Indians Don’t Bat Left-Handed with Nathan Leamon

    Why Indians Don’t Bat Left-Handed with Nathan Leamon

    This episode we talk about why Indians don’t bat left-handed. And so why not get on someone who has just written a book on this, with that as his very title. Nathan Leamon and Ben Jones have written a book called Hitting Against the Spin, and it’s basically the book you need to understand how cricket is currently played. But I got Nathan on to talk about the history of left-handers, anticipation skills, why off spinners are good, LBWs, umpires, outswing, and why left-handers were better against seam than spin.

    The Impressive Figure of Faf du Plessis with Dan Gallan

    The Impressive Figure of Faf du Plessis with Dan Gallan

    This episode we talk about Faf du Plessis, a central figure in modern cricket, but one who had to grind it out to make the top. So I got on the man who interviewed him most recently. Dan Gallan and I chatted about his limits, the politics, toughness, empathy, leadership and growing up with AB de Villiers alongside you.

    Don’t Bye For Me Argentina with James Coyne

    Don’t Bye For Me Argentina with James Coyne

    This week we talk about Argentinian cricket. And luckily two men have just written a book called “Evita burned down our Pavilion” and I got one of them on to chat about it. James Coyne and I discuss how good Argentina were at cricket when they took games off MCC teams, why they were held back from Test cricket, and why the game didn’t spread like football and rugby did. We talk Evita, Plum Warner, Buenos Aires and the new rivalry coming out of Brazil versus Argentina in women’s cricket.

    The Likeable Aaron Finch with Melinda Farrell

    The Likeable Aaron Finch with Melinda Farrell

    This episode we talk about Aaron Finch, one of two accidental Australian captains. But perhaps the more interesting one. So I got on Melinda Farrell who wrote a piece on Finch recently. Here we talk about how Finch thought his career was gone, his likeability, white ball talent, red ball scars and the night he quite literally thought he pissed his career away.

Thoughtful and hilarious cricket podcast.

In my opinion, this is the best cricket podcast out there. Jarrod tackles a fascinating cricket related subject in each episode. I’ve loved every one, except the stuff on Indian cricket, because there’s too much content on Indian cricket anyway. The episodes on SA’s cricket board issues with Firdose Moonda, the episode on Faf Du Plessis and the episode on the West Indian rebel cricketers were three that stood out to me. All the best.

Trust Jarrod to deliver a top quality podcast

Jarrod is one of those insanely talented people whose talent is not understood well enough. Creating top quality content is Jarrod’s thing, be it his written pieces on ESPN Cricinfo or his analysis videos on YouTube. You can see the amount of work he has put into his content, it is evident. This podcast is no different. Thanks Jarrod.
