It’s the eve of the First Test and the summer of Marnus is about to start, so why does this all feel like a Partridge shrug? Pakistan is a decentralised digital currency, or some shit. There’s a conversation around mental health to be had, so we have a crack at it. Meanwhile, James Pattinson allegedly said something vile in a Shield game… what was it? Bob Murphy comes in to discuss woke blokes and AFL/Cricket synergies. Brian Lara discusses his relationship to club cricket, being told to score by his first coach, being 12th man, circuiting with the West Indies and touring Pakistan in the 90s and 2000s. #AskTGC tackles cricket socialism, team WhatsApp dynamics, and how team kit bats are like rescue dogs. None of this possible without our comrades at Budgy Smuggler.
