ENG v WI 2nd Test Review & 3rd Test Preview

July 22, 2020

Finding time to work out how we got here and where we go next, Nakul Pande and David Brook analyse the 2nd Test - West Indies's fight, Sibley's patience, Broad's excellence and Stokes' sheer Stokesness - and pick our 3rd Test XIs. Does your favourite get a mention?

ENG v WI 1st Test Review & 2nd Test Preview

July 14, 2020

Four months with no cricket, and now, we have no time. Host Nakul Pande and the unnervingly positive Machel St Patrick Hewitt (host of the excellent Caribbean Cricket Podcast) use the last moment of quiet before the 2nd Test build-up begins in earnest to recollect the emotion of Southampton in tranquility:

  • Did England really doom themselves with their decision-making, or did they just not play as well as the West Indies?
  • Does Ben Stokes realise how good he is?
  • Is Kraigg Brathwaite back? Was Shai Hope ever here?

We play 2nd Test selector too, trying and failing to scan John Campbell's foot from 200 miles away:

  • Denly the human shock absorber or Crawley the coming man?
  • Broad for Wood is simple - too simple?
  • Rakheem Cornwall has to play - but will he?

Guerilla Cricket meets Dan Newman of JDRF UK

Throughout the rolling, tumbling, dice throwing mayhem of the Dickwella Broad Owzat Trophy, we’ve been partnering with JDRF UK.  

In this special episode of the Guerilla Cricket Podcast, Guerilla and DBOT finalist Tony Bishop, meets Daniel Newman of JDRF UK. Diagnosed at 10 years old with Type 1 Diabetes, Dan’s journey has been challenging, deeply moving and inspiring in equal measure.  He tells us about the amazing work of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and his role in their work to improve lives and one day eradicate the condition for good. We also talk about famous cricketers who have Type 1, Pakistan and Lancashire legend Wasim Akram amongst them.

JDRF:

They need your support.  Listen to Dan’s story and please go to our DBOT (Very Loud and Animated) and help us to help JDRF.  https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/db-owzat-trophy

 

Join a global movement to create a world without type 1 but with the world’s best independent cricket commentary.

 

Thanks as ever to Jeff Perkins for the theme tune and jingles and to Nigel Walker for editing and production support.

Anti-Racism Special

Anti-Racism Special

June 8, 2020
The title is woefully inadequate for the task at hand - but we had to call it something, and it's hard to spell a wordless scream. Anti-racism is not something to parcel into a pod-sized package and not think about again, and it's in that spirit that host Nakul Pande and Machel St Patrick Hewitt take to the mics.

Nakul and Machel share their personal experiences of being cricket fans of colour, discuss the international resonance of the uprising against a living legacy of state-sanctioned racist violence in America, and ask questions of experts in the policy and representational aspects of anti-racism work in cricket:

We also read an excerpt of a powerful call to international consciousness from cricket administrator, scholar & activist Professor Hilary Beckles.

We #SayTheirNames. We remember. And we believe #BlackLivesMatter.
