The first instalment of the weekly Cricket Badger World Cup Podcast, in association with Cricket365, is a betting preview ahead of Thursday’s big kick-off.
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 first episode they pick their tournament winners, semi-finalists, name their bottom team, top batsman, top bowler and discuss whether a 200 will be scored or a team can get past 500.
There is a competitive element to this podcast with units being staked on the Paddy Power 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!
