Unprofessional

Sambit Bal is so irritating to listen to. This podcast comes under an unprofessional category rather than professional. Only standout for me is Butcher, whom I respect as a cricketer.

Love this pod, wish it was more consistently put out

I love this podcast for the insight provided by Mark Butcher, the Andrews McGlashan and Miller, and George Dobell (my favorite cricket writer). There aren't many cricket podcasts available in the US, so it's great to have access to this one. HOWEVER, I really wish they'd publish the podcasts more regularly.
