World Cricket Podcast

Thank you Sir Graeme Swann

Andy Zaltzman

There is danger in watching Yusuf Pathan hit sixes, even from the comfort of your couch. Be warned. Also some fun Bangladesh stats, interviews with Alex Bowden and Justin Hamilton, and more lies about cricketers, including a shocking one about Alan Davidson and lettuce.

Hahahaha--England trying to "retain Ashes 0-0" picking "10 batsmen and 1 bowler"--Swann bowling throughout series, Pietersen plugging the other end... brilliant!! Wake up that Strauss and have him order more GM bats just in case!!!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Andy Zaltzman
Andy Zaltzman was born in obscurity in 1974. He has been a sporadically-acclaimed stand-up comedian since 1999, and has appeared regularly on BBC Radio 4. He is currently one half of TimesOnline's hit satirical podcast The Bugle, alongside John Oliver. Zaltzman's love of cricket outshone his aptitude for the game by a humiliating margin. He once scored 6 in 75 minutes in an Under-15 match, and failed to hit a six between the ages of 9 and 23. He would have been ideally suited to Tests, had not a congenital defect left him unable to play the game to anything above genuine village standard. He writes the Confectionery Stall blog on Cricinfo.
