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.
