    West Indies v England 1993/94, plus Graeme Hick

    West Indies v England 1993/94, plus Graeme Hick

    Peter Hayter, Emma John and Rob Smyth join Gary Naylor to discuss how Mike Atherton’s inexperienced England tourists fared against Brian Lara and the West Indies in early 1994. There are tales of Miller’s bar, blotto copy and teenage trauma, along with colourful memories of Curtly Ambrose and 46 all out, an unlikely victory in Barbados and Lara’s world record test score. And will the panel reach any consensus over the enigma that is Graeme Hick? They attempt to weigh his extraordinary talent and considerable achievements against the times when his England performances didn’t meet people’s huge expectations.

    1986/87 Ashes and Malcolm Marshall

    1986/87 Ashes and Malcolm Marshall

    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.

    Robin Smith, plus the 1992 Cricket World Cup

    Robin Smith, plus the 1992 Cricket World Cup

    Derek Pringle, Mike Selvey and Rob Smyth join Gary Naylor to discuss the swashbuckling former England and Hampshire batsman Robin Smith. Derek roomed with him for England, Rob helped him write his revealing autobiography and Mike watched Smith’s international career closely from the press box, so there’s no shortage of insight about ‘The Judge’. Both Robin and Derek were part of England’s 1992 World Cup campaign and there’s a fascinating, in-depth chat about that memorable tournament as well, when Imran Khan’s Pakistan beat England in the final. Oh and listen out for the year’s best Christopher Martin-Jenkins anecdote. The 80’s and 90’s Cricket Show is sponsored by Anderton Law.

    Ian Botham (after '81) and West Indies v England 1990

    Ian Botham (who else?) is the iconic player under examination in the first ever episode. Gary Naylor debates the second half of Beefy’s career with three men who have all written books with or about the great man - veteran BBC cricket reporter Pat Murphy, cricket correspondent of the Sunday Times Simon Wilde and Peter Hayter, columnist at The Cricket Paper. The quartet also discuss the highlights and flashpoints of England’s controversial Caribbean tour against the mighty West Indies in early 1990, with fabulous on-the-spot insight and countless vivid Viv Richards anecdotes.

    Coming Soon - starts September!

    Coming Soon - starts September!

    The Eighties and Nineties Cricket Show revisits the days of Botham and Gower, Viv Richards, Allan Border, and Javed Miandad - the days before T20, when test matches had rest days, when chairmen of selectors couldn’t recall names of players, blamed getting beaten on astrology, and once selected 4 captains and 29 players in a single summer. Gary Naylor will be joined by the likes of Derek Pringle, Mike Selvey, Rob Smyth, Peter Hayter, Pat Murphy and Simon Wilde to discuss the best and worst of cricket at the end of the 20th century. The Eighties and Nineties Cricket Show is sponsored by Anderton Law.
