Chris Stocks has been out in India, covering the World Cup for “The Independent” newspaper. Here, we chat about the substandard planning, organisation and running of the tournament, with over-zealous stewarding and the feeling that it was all designed for the tv audience, rather than the spectators in the ground. We can’t avoid talking about England’s disastrous defence of their crown and discuss where the side goes from here; is Matthew Mott lucky to still be in a job? Who emerges with any credit and what will the side look like going in to 2024…
County squad members have reported back for duty at their clubs and we update on the comings and goings across the country. Plus all the usual news and views from around the world of cricket and music this week from Ian Brown and Chic.
Don’t forget “98 Not Out” is also on podcast and YouTube:
