Glenn Maxwell mayhem & 150 years of women's cricket
Play • 1 hr 41 min

Season 9, Ep 10: It seems Glenn likes the SCG. The Aussie men's summer is underway, and the one-dayers have been spectacular with Steve Smith centuries, the Finch-Warner partnership, and Maxi's destruction at the end. The Women's Big Bash finals are over with the Sydney Thunder the surprise winners. England are winning in South Africa and a new chair was appointed to the ICC. Then there's our interview with Fiona Bollen, whose new book with the Bradman Museum brings together a trove of newly discovered photographs of women's cricket in Australia since the 1800s and tells those stories. We'll go all the way back to when the four nieces of Australia's first Test captain Dave Gregory proved their own skill on the field. And keep an ear out for 1930s Final Word favourite Peggy Antonio.

Aasif Karim- The Mombasa Lion Slayer
This episode of Red Inker is on one of cricket’s most remarkable spells by the man who bowled it, Aasif Karim. In 2003 I was backpacking around the World Cup, and we headed to Durban for the Kenya vs Australia match. We really didn’t expect much, as good as Kenya had been in the tournament, no one expected them to put up such of a fight against Australia. Brett Lee started with a hat-trick, Kenya limped to a sub-par total, and then Adam Gilchrist hit Kenya’s best bowlers out of Kingsmead. The match was heading for an obvious result when what looked like a middle-aged insurance broker came on to bowl. And what followed was extraordinary, as the world’s best team were stopped dead in their tracks by a man who had played a lifetime already, and who no one had noticed. - To support the podcast please go to our Patreon page.
