Hop aboard the DeLorean and come back to the future with us! Whitto is in all sorts of mischievous moods today. Consequently the pod leaps around more than Donald Trump’s wig on a blustery day. Or a normal day actually. Anyway the problem today lies in it being the start of the fourth test between England and India.
Distracted like a teen with magazines, Whitto has one eye on the scoreboard. The other? Don’t you know, he has an eye patch. Nah we’re only pulling your leg. Because with yesterday being ‘Lying’ day, there’s a few porkies in the pod. Certainly not the fact Moeen Ali is recalled to England’s side.
Which is huge news for Mo. And us, as we sing his song. We analyse Ed Smith’s selections, with half the squad being all rounders. India were unchanged for the first time in five years! That’s older than their new batting sensation Shaw!
In a first at HFAL HQ, Whitto reveals he has Joe Root on speed dial. What do you reckon happens next? We give him a bell of course. Hence some gossip on Trevor Bayliss emerges. However the real fun is yet to begin. With The Ageas Bowl hosting its first test in five years, we go back to 2014. Imagine if you could change anything about the world today, what would it be? Well Whitto has a few ideas.
Consequently Huw Edwards appears. Seems like the Welsh accent is back. That and a whole host of other impressions. We better be careful because we’ll lose our host to Radio 4 comedy, ‘Dead Ringers’ if we’re not careful…
That alone should be enough of a reason to listen. Also we’re free and funny, so give us a try! Fans of Lancs, Sussex, Somerset and Worcs reveal in your appearance on Finals Day.
Above all fans of England… look away now.
