The Cricket Badger James Buttler is joined by our very own Oli Fisher and cricket journalist Aakash Sivasubramaniam to look back at the first Ashes Test at Edgbaston, ponder how to get Steve Smith out, England’s batting order and whether changes should be made for Lord’s. There is a lot to discuss!
The trio will be back every week throughout the series to assess the action just gone, chew over the talking points and make their predictions on the week ahead.
Gamble responsibly and we will see you next week! Enjoy the Ashes!
