The Cricket Badger James Buttler is joined by Cricket365’s Oli Fisher and cricket journalist Aakash Sivasubramaniam to look back at arguably the greatest Test of all time at Headingley over the last week.
Ben Stokes’ heroics have taken the world’s breath away and the trio try to piece it all together. They are also quick to assert that Stokes’ magnificence should not paper over the cracks in England’s batting and that the Ashes are not won yet.
The trio will be back every week throughout the Ashes series to assess the action just gone, chew over the talking points and make their predictions on the week ahead.
And in the charity competition the trio put up their bets for who wins the Test and find the best Paddy Power match bets. The winner at the end of the series will be able to make a donation to the charity of his choice.
Gamble responsibly and we will see you next week! Enjoy the Ashes!
