    Pads Off: Jimmy/Mattchin

    Pads Off: Jimmy/Mattchin

    As Jimmy prepares for his final Test match we wanted to conduct a well researched, informative, ground breaking, career-spanning, exclusive interview with England’s greatest bowler and there was only one man (available) for the job… step forward Mattchin Tendulkar.
    From a teenager in Burnley to bowing out at Lord's, Mattchin delves deep into the psyche of the most successful fast bowler ever. Warning: This podcast does contain an unusually high number of metaphors.

Non-stop laughs

Loosely cricket-based, fully based on having a good time and laughter. What could be better you ask? Well, throw England’s greatest ever bowler, and my favorite cricketer, into the mix. Go well from Colorado-based American with an English father! If it weren’t for him, I would’ve never even heard about cricket.

Positively Underwelmed ,

You’ve gone soft!

Well you sure threw Jimmy and the rest of the England team under the bus when interviewing Mel! You suggested that the Lords incident was to be discussed and as soon as Mel gave her opinion you agreed and moved on no discussion about how the Aussies will win at any cost! No push back at all! I have listened to this podcast from the beginning now I withdraw my support and will listen no more!
