Just like Samit Patel, the 51allout podcast is back. Unlike Samit Patel it’s definitely okay for us to be overweight.
Following their Ashes renaissance, England’s next job is to be less crap in the UAE than they were last time. Which shouldn’t be that difficult. But what team will they actually pick?
The latest 51allout podcast is mercifully free of discussion about Kevin Pietersen, as attention turns to laughing at Australia for a change. Also features two of the following: man love for Younis Khan, disgust for Andrew Flintoff and respect for Glenn Maxwell.
Phil Hughes? Alex Doolan? Shane Watson? Just who will fail the hardest in the UAE? We take a look at the recent Australian Test squad announcement.
It’s an Australia special! Join James, Ashley and Aussie Matt as they take it in turns to (metaphorically) kick the Aussie team while they’re down. Apart from Steven Peter Devereux Smith, who gets a great deal of love and respect. Plus the New Zealand vs. England snoozefest gets glossed over.
A pretty standard week for the 51allout podcast, consisting of accidental racism, deliberate racism and trying not to talk about Australia. Or indeed anything at all, in one particular case.
The main topics this week included playing Radiohead at T20 matches, loving Jos Buttler and Luke Wright and boldly predicting South Africa to beat Pakistan. Plus the Australia vs. West Indies series gets an almighty kicking for basically wasting everyone’s time.
