James Buttler, the Cricket Badger, is joined by Cricket365’s Oli Fisher and cricket journalist Aakash Sivasubramaniam to pick out their favourite moments from the fifth week of the Cricket World Cup 2019.
In this sixth episode they pick their top batsman, top bowler and Champagne moment from week four. They discuss England’s successful and eventful march to the semi-finals, Bairstow’s batting and his comments, the validity of Net Run Rate, sub fielders and whether India are as good as some people think.
The trio will be back on Sunday to preview the semi-finals, assess the action just gone and make their predictions for the knockout games.
