126. Quarantine Cuts, with Mike Whitney and Chris Rogers
Play • 1 hr 39 min
England have gone 2-0 up in the T20 bubble series thanks to Jos Buttler being maybe England’s best ever white ball player and Australia being on a contiki bubble tour. Are Australia good? Is anyone good? What do rankings mean? And who has to throw the ball back when another Dawad Malan bomb lands in the empty seats?

Ian Bell announces his retirement so we dissect his 22 Test century career through the lens of two blokes with zero rest centuries.

And finally, Darren Lehman’s coaching role for Yorkshire’s hundred team is being scrutinised after claims of institutional racism spread this week.

#AskTGC involves playing rare sports outside of cricket and playing against the England women’s blind team.

The January 26 problem
Season 9, Ep 18: "How you wanna raise a flag with a rifle / To make us want to celebrate anything but survival?" So goes the A.B. Originals song January 26. This year Cricket Australia stopped using the term 'Australia Day' to promote matches, recognising that it's a day of mourning for a lot of Indigenous people. Predictably this small gesture was criticised by political antagonists. On the date in question, Munanjahli writer Dr Chelsea Watego joins us to talk about commemoration versus celebration, the complexity of history, and what progress might actually look like beyond platitudes. Also this week, Sri Lanka's series against England wraps up, South Africa head to Pakistan for the first time in 13 years, and the World Test Championship possibilities become slightly more clear.

Vaughany was a master technician with the bat, carving up Australia in the 2002-03 Ashes series and a few years later was the inspirational leader of England's epic 2005 Ashes victory. In this episode, Vaughany shares his brilliant insight into leadership, batting and his endeavours off the field. It's not to be missed for any aspiring captain or batter.
