    2021: A cricket odyssey

    2021: A cricket odyssey

    Alex Braae and Simon Day come out of retirement to record the podcast equivalent of a testimonial match for the year that was. The World Test Championship, the men’s T20 World Cup, Ajaz Patel’s historic 10-for, Simon’s Clear tattoo… what a time to be a New Zealand cricket tragic.

    NZL 140/2 & 249; IND 217 & 170 (NZL win by 8 wickets) | What a game of test cricket.

    World Test Championship: Days 4-5

    World Test Championship: Days 4-5

    IND 64/2 & 217; NZL 249 | After another day of rain, both members of The Offspin stayed up all night watching a riveting day of test cricket and are now struggling. Alex is holding it down in the studio, while Simon is in the hallway of a Wellington cafe, so sorry about the sound quality on this one. After this episode was recorded Simon hopped in a taxi and the driver was Ewen Chatfield – if that’s not a good omen for Day 6, nothing is. This podcast is brought to you by The Beer Spot.

    World Test Championship: Day 3

    World Test Championship: Day 3

    NZL 101/2; IND 217 | Between them, The Offspin managed to watch almost every ball of what was an excellent day of test cricket for the Blackcaps. Alex has discovered the secret to staying up all night (it’s all about hydration), while Simon is attempting to take credit for all the wickets that fell while he slept through the first two sessions. Can the New Zealand middle order now build on a dominant display of pace bowling and resolute opening partnership? Or will the dreaded Southampton rain return and ruin everything?

    IND 146/3 | On a leisurely Sunday morning episode of The Offspin, Alex Braae is joined by producer Jonathan Pearce to break down an enthralling first proper day of test cricket. The pair discuss dreary old Southampton, the Indian batsmen putting the Black Caps bowlers under serious pressure, the texture of the radio commentary and playing carpark cricket in the USA.
