Our special guest this week is Richard Clarke AKA “The Grumbler”, who has written an article about Derek Randall, who made his First Class debut fifty years ago this week and contrasts that era to the “sanitised” England team of the current era. Has the march to make sport more business-like taken away the charm; has winning at all costs been at the cost of personalities within the sport? Will it ultimately hurt grass roots cricket?
We report on New Zealand’s stunning success winning the inaugural World Test Championship, beating India in the Final. England are back in action against Sri Lanka, The Vitality Blast is well underway and there is contracting news from around the counties.
We also report on some stunning results in last weekend’s Hamro Essex Premier League and look forward to this week’s fixtures. Plus the usual mix of chat, nonsense and music!
Show first broadcast on Thursday 24th. June 2021 on Phoenix 98FM.
