Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? Well let me tell you. This week it’s the blonde haired princess Stuart Broad. In responding to criticisms from the press, Broad is back to his sparkling blue eyed, baby faced best. He stole 6-66 in the last test match against Pakistan and has the pick of suitors. Including of course your host and ours, Whitto.
Didn’t the lions roar this week! With the aid of some zoo appropriate sound effects we compare England’s performance over the weekend to the baboon like wreckage of last week. It could not have been more different. What changed? Was it the inclusion of Sam Curran? Has Jennings (the tin man) finally found his heart? Have the England boys been watching that YouTube video of the baby giggling at ripping paper? Were they forced to listen to our last podcast? Whitto seeks to find out.
With his best journalistic skills he conducts a trio of interviews with Stuart Broad, who’s voice changes pitch each time. One thing is for certain. As a result Broad won’t be going for a wine with Michael Vaughan any time soon. Someone who is off down the pub is everybody’s favourite newsreader, Huw Edwards. Yes, Whitto may deliver a news report; as Huw. And Welsh is certainly not his strong point. We’d recommend a stiff drink after hearing. In fact we’ve all spent a lot of money down the pub since this pod started.
Alastair Cook is marooned on ‘Love Island.’ Dom Bess has a new chant. Sarfraz Ahmed breaks a mirror. It all goes a bit mad. The only sensible part is a return of ‘How’s Stat?’ And even that is almost too silly.
If you’re looking for factual analysis, you’ve come to the wrong place.
On the other hand, if you’re intrigued as to how Neil from ‘The Inbetweeners’ makes an appearance on a cricket podcast get listening!
