It’s already episode three of the Cricket Badger World Cup podcast. How time flies when the bails don’t.
James Buttler, the Cricket Badger, is joined again by Cricket 365’s Oli Fisher and cricket journalist Aakash Sivasubramaniam to pick out their favourite moments from the second week of the Cricket World Cup 2019.
The trio will be back every week throughout the tournament to assess the action just gone and make their predictions on the week ahead.
In this third episode they pick their top batsman, top bowler and Champagne moment from week one. They discuss the bails that don’t come off, Virat Kohli’s defence of Steve Smith, umpiring standards and come up with some methods to help the officials do their job.
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!
