Who’s That Weirdo Ep 2

November 17, 2022
In the second edition of the quizcast that seeks to separate the live cricketers from the dead cricketers and those who aren't cricketers at all, it's the Somerset stand-off as County Cricket Matters and Taunton tsarena Annie Chave takes on Guerilla regular and Newton Abbot native Paul "Grubby" Howarth. Only here, in the most fiendish test of cricket knowledge to date, can you find out of Dick Sleath was a Scottish-born wicketkeeper whose five innings for Victoria in the 1890s netted him an average of 34.33 or a sheep shearer and mining contractor who later became a politician for two parties in the Australian parliament. In the break, our forthright social justice warrior and swing bowler Chris Woke brings you the latest on the ever-ambitious ICC's plans for an Out of This World Cup.

Live cricketer? Dead cricketer? Or not a cricketer at all? All will be revealed in Who's That Weirdo? the new part podcast/part quiz from the Guerilla Cricket team that brings you 100 days of live cricket commentary a year, a website featuring news, views, features and more merchandise than you can shake a bust of an angry Ian Chappell at. Call it a quizcast. And in addition to discovering, in the most fiendish test of cricket knowledge to date, whether Wajahatullah Wasti was a bowler who took no wickets in his three Tests for Pakistan in the 1950s or was a politician in the country's National Assembly who moonlighted as a Sufi poet, you will also hear the wise words of the nicest man in cricket, Chris Woke, during the interval, as the Warwickshire and England swing bowler and social justice warrior takes time out from his busy injury schedule to raise the pressing issues of the day and embarks on his one-man mission to save cricket: Forced Inclusion

Founded in 1864 and resident at Lords since 1877, we are going to focus here on Middlesex.

11 times County Champions, the club has a proud history of developing many of the game’s greatest known cricketers, including the likes of Denis Compton, Mike Gatting, John Emburey and Andrew Strauss to name but a few and this tradition continues to the modern day, with a very exciting group of young talent coming through like Robbie White, Ethan Bamber and Luke Holman.

The CEO of Middlesex is Andrew Cornish. Listen here as Andrew tells @tonybishop1 about the steps the club is taking to broaden the member base, inspire participation in the game, increase inclusivity and diversity of team and fans and lay foundations for the long-term success of Middlesex and the game as a whole. And, as Middlesex fans will be happy to hear, win silverware along the way.

Who is the oldest of our First-Class Counties? Surrey? Middlesex? Lancashire? Yorkshire? It’s none of those. Founded in 1839, it is Sussex.

Three times county County Champions, their illustrious history boasts the likes of CB Fry, David Shepherd, Ted Dexter, Tony Greig, Ranjitsinghi, Maurice Tate and John Snow. Now, they are promoting some young and exciting talent like Tom Haines, Tom Clarke and Archie Lenham and blending that with the likes of Stephen Finn and new arrivals Cheteshwar Pujara and Mohammad Riswan.

The CEO of Sussex is a familiar sporting name. Rob Andrew. Listen here, as Rob tells @tonybishop1 about Sussex’s plans to inspire cricket across the county, to promote and support young talent and to support the Sussex cricket community.

Leicestershire CEO @SeanMJarvis is a man on a mission to grow not just the size, but also the range and diversity of the County’s membership and fan base. Leicestershire are a proud county. 3 times county champions, 3 times T20 champions and 3 times Benson and Hedges Cup Winners.

 

Yet when England get battered in a Test Series, there are those who point an accusing figure towards our first - class County game. Some would even question the status of Counties at all.  So, it’s a tough brief, especially when you are not based at a ‘Test Match’ Ground.

 

Here, Sean tells @tonybishop1 about Leicestershire’s partnership with the Cricket Supporters Association, #CountyTogether and a broad ranging action plan to and to attract new fans to the County.

 

A tough brief it may be, but it’s one Sean is tackling with commitment, determination and no little humour. If you are a @leicsccc follower or just a lover of the game, Sean’s passion and enthusiasm are inspiring. Listen here and let us know what you think.

Botham, Richards, Garner, Trescothik, Caddick, Gimlett, White, Bess, Leach, Rogers, Close, Gayle, Azam. Just a few names that have graced the County Ground in Taunton and home of Somerset.  They have a beautiful ground in the South West of England and a reputation since 1875 for playing a dashing and exciting brand of cricket. Certainly, well before anyone would have used the phrase ‘brand of cricket’.

Their fan base is passionate, loyal and care deeply for their beloved county.

Listen here as Gordon Hollins, Somerset CEO, tells @tonybishop1 how they have navigated through the pandemic and have a long-term plan for success and growth, starting with filling that one large gap in their trophy cabinet at the earliest possible opportunity. Taunton may not a ‘Test Match Ground’ but it does stage international cricket. It also represents a broad area of this country’s cricket community and Gordon is looking to expand that further ensuring the future health of the club and its community.

February 15, 2022

There are huge challenges in our national game at the moment. Test results have been poor and the very structure of our UK domestic game is under scrutiny from the grass roots upwards.  In this environment of question and concern, our counties need to be making the game as accessible, attractive and effective as they can. The Cricket Supporters Association exists to represent the interest of fans to the governors of our game and recently they have been working with the Lancashire Action Group @lancscccaction, a passionate and vocal group of Red Rose fans who want to ensure that the voice of Lancashire fans is heard and represented by their County. Their Co-founder is Ian Lomax@mctownie1 and here he discusses with @tonybishop1 the group’s objectives, their CSA partnership and the deep concerns regarding their own county.
