DOUBLE TROUBLE - The Root Brothers
Play • 1 hr 21 min

It'd been over two years since we had England captain Joe Root on the pod, and his brother Glamorgan star Billy hadn't been on the pod at all until they both joined the lads for this special episode (although Billy was sat in the studio as his then-team-mate Luke Fletcher appeared a couple of years back, so he knew what he was letting himself in for!).

Imagine back-yard cricket, but then imagine it when two brothers are on opposite sides in a county match. Well, these two have done it... more on that in the podcast. 

Greggy, Millard and Somerset-seamer Jack Brooks ask Joe about the World Cup final, The Ashes, his first away trip (and the wardrobe malfunction that came with it), nearly taking his first Test 5-fer back in January and his bat-drop celebration that he stole off former team-mate Brooksy. 

Billy joins the fun to talk about his useful advice* for his brother on his Glamorgan team-mate Marnus Labaschagne for the Ashes, bagging an Aston Martin deal due to his own batting heroics last year, and he gives us a masterclass in Welsh.
