LISTEN: Cricket Badger Podcast: 2019 World Cup – Episode Four
James Buttler, the Cricket Badger, is joined by Cricket 365’s Oli Fisher and cricket journalist Aakash Sivasubramaniam to pick out their favourite moments from the third week of the Cricket World Cup 2019.
In this fourth episode they pick their top batsman, top bowler and Champagne moment from week one. They discuss Eoin Morgan’s incredible hundred, Afghanistan’s off-field problems, whether they would prefer a one-sided six-fest to a low-scoring thriller and why Pakistan are so inconsistent.
They also take a look at which teams can realistically still make the semi-finals.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 World Cup 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!
