The Cricket Badger James Buttler is joined by Cricket 365’s Oli Fisher and cricket journalist Aakash Sivasubramaniam to pick out their favourite moments from the fourth week of the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
In this fifth episode they pick their top batsman, top bowler and Champagne moment from week four. They discuss England’s disastrous week and try and explain how and why it has happened and decide whether Eoin Morgan’s men can still reach the semi-finals. They reflect on Shakib Al Hasan’s incredible all-round tournament for Bangladesh, marvel at Carlos Brathwaite’s amazing hundred, and muse on India’s struggles against Afghanistan.
The trio will be back every week throughout the tournament to assess the action just gone and make their predictions on the week ahead.
There is a competitive element to this podcast with units being staked on the bookies’ prices for each market and five units for each match pick. The winner at the end of the tournament will be able to make a donation to the charity of his choice.
Gamble responsibly and we will see you next week! Enjoy the cricket!
