Great show.

Just wanted to say, as a young(ish) English cricket fan (admittedly of Indian descent) I watch the IPL for exactly the reason you state - it's the only cricket that I can get on my TV without paying extortionate amounts to Sky.

I'd take Test cricket over any other form any day of the year, if it was a straight choice between the two; but unfortunately for anyone on a budget it's not that simple. (Which is why cricinfo is a wonderful resource to have)

I was a big fan of this podcast until I listened to this episode! The other commentators are alright but the Aussie is really annoying. He just tries to put people down and says random comments which he thinks are funny but they're not.
