269. Cricket in America, with Jimmy Bartel & Alex Malcolm

Dressed by our mates @BudgySmuggler We're back with Budgy Smuggler to pump up their new underwear campaign. Australia's Most Ordinary Rig Josh Clutterbuck and the NRL's Hottest player Herbie Farnworth front the campaign for Australia's most comfortable underwear. The code GRADE has been set up for a tasty 23% off our underwear and apparel and is valid until the end of June. Bradman’s house is for sale, cricket’s on Amazon, the World Cup’s in America (partly), Jimmy Anderson is going to stop playing and Jimmy Bartel’s on the show. Fair to say the game’s changing. TGC’s back for a run during the World Cup, so we start by discharging our takes on weeks-old news. Things like hosting a bucks at Bradman’s childhood home, disgraceful news-breaking around Jimmy’s retirement, and questioning why the Aussies are still talking about Bairstow. The IPL has finished – absolutely gutted. Zampa says he gets a bigger buzz from international cricket. Another disgrace. Dizzy says grade cricket in SA is selfish. Very out-of-touch. Triple premiership player Jimmy Bartel joins the show: he wants to talk cricket, we want to talk Harley Reid. ESPN Cricinfo’s Alex Malcolm then balances matters with high-level insight into the World Cup. He talks structuring and match-ups, we talk tunnels and testicles. It’s a (Stuart) Broad church, and it knows what it's doing. Great to be back.

TGC Live in NYC Announcement

SIGN UP FOR PRESALE ON PATREON General sale goes live HERE 10am Friday (New York Time).  After sold-out live tours to India, the UK, and Australia, The Grade Cricketer embarks on a debut US odyssey, playing a special, one-off Broadway show at New York’s historic Town Hall Theatre on June 10th to coincide with the T20 World Cup. Hot on the heels of NYC’s blockbuster India v Pakistan fixture, Pez and Higgos take the stage to address the game’s biggest questions, such as: can cricket “make it” in America, is it Australia’s trophy (again), and who better: Dhoni or Vy-rat? Join us for a rollicking, laugh-out-loud night as world cricket’s most entertaining duo perform their most ambitious live show yet. Yes, Hamilton can wait. With special guests and material too hot for the podcast, TGC on Broadway promises to be an unforgettable evening. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

India beat England by 434 runs in the 3rd Test with some incredible individual and team performances but it’s England that are doing all the talking. Weird talking. Crows feet talking. Is it necessary? Is it good? Is it arrogant? Is it umpire’s call? Is the series over? Annabel Sutherland and the Australia Women’s team make us coo like pigeons while being fed grapes like a Roman Emperor after their enormous, innings victory over South Africa. Are you scared of future losses or grateful for the now? What if brothers and sisters play for Australia forever? There’s some interesting Pucovski, Green, Bancroft and Maddinson runs The Shield.

264. I Think Australia Won Again, with Broden Kelly

Australia wins a World Cup again, Australia beats India again, and yes: the comments are turned off. So are the highlights, apparently. Well, tempered. Will they be on PlayHQ? We ponder youth wins, talk white ball pumpings, and explore the raw, unbridled Jake Fraser McGurk alongside the refined Glenn Maxwell - the Sir Edmund Hillary of ceilings. We then discuss a runout episode featuring penguins, helmets, and pints of cows milk. That’s before Broden Kelly of Aunty Donna fame joins in-studio to talk about real estate agents and whether footy is funny. Australia’s women are still winning, India are short some experience ahead of England in Rajkot, the Skeletons loom, and someone’s shadow bowling with a medicine ball at Muscle Beach.  If you want to support The Grade Cricketer, please join us on Patreon at https://www.Patreon.com/gradecricketer  where you get #AskTGC Fridays every week and access to the entire back catalogue of Patreon work that has been going for 3 years now.

263. Bit Fat, Like a Beer

It’s The Bison’s night at the Australian Cricket Awards, sharing the spoils with Ash Gardner as the nation celebrated pound-for-pound dominance. TGC contributed some “stale bread” and stories of stolen cricket balls for good measure. There’s some titillating ODI trappings, the women dust South Africa, there’s a litany of weird dismissals and moral quandaries that only Internet dickheads can solve, and NZ plays Sout Africa in 2’s v 4’s. England lost to India by 100 runs, but India is both scared and the beneficiaries of “technology gone wrong”. AskTGC closes things with first-hand evidence of the benefits of self-loading ball machines. Cuff him, boys!

262. Are These Muscles Big Enough For Him, with Tim Rogers and Alex Malcolm

A red-letter day in the annals of Test cricket, once again demonstrating its capacity to deliver bulk pleasure and bulk pain. We talk Windies, we talk Shamar, and Commo John gives his verdict. Should we turn up at Jolimont with balaclavas and illegal firearms? Only time will tell. ESPNs Alex Malcolm joins to provide the logic and reason. Then it’s England and India, where everything good about Bazball came to pass in a victory that, really, may well be one of the greatest in England’s history. Will Tom Hartley celebrate with cock tricks and died hair? We’re then graced by the presence of Australian Rock and Roll legend, Tim Rogers, talking country cricket, Mick Jagger, and scoring drugs with Liam Gallagher in Tokyo. Australia’s women aren’t absolutely perfect, thus we are concerned, the men’s U19 World Cup has started well thank God, and Spencer Johnson got a big bucket medal for winning the Bucket on Bonce League. AskTGC is about riding 12k on an ebike for a solo indoor net at 1am. Hope you enjoy.

261. In and Around The Boys

The Australian Men selfishly retain their spots for The Gabba, thus denying us the trappings we seek. But have you seen the ODI Squad? Fraser-McGurk is not only in - but around - the boys, as is Xavier Bartlett. May not play, but at the very least it’s a kit, rhythms, contours thing. Bareback will get a roll in gold, so we’ll be strong on eye hygiene.  Elsewhere, the BBL reaches its denouement. Usual suspects have come and gone at the famous Gold Coast cauldron, where fringe players fail interspersed with shots of the Suns’ Matt Rowell. Lloyd Pope humiliated blokes with wrong’uns, which was good. In fact, the BBL has been good. The BBL is growing. We may be minority-voiced commentariat cucks, but can the teams not get worse as the season goes on? Maybe…not? This week India and England commence a 5 Test series. It is a battle of extremity and delectable for the neutral. How does Bazball fare against expert spin on raggers? England could become the greatest ever team to play the code, or the greatest embarrassment known to man. There’s no in-between. Will be fun. AskTGC concerns a second trimester pregnancy, buckets on bonces, and whether or not to let the darkness in.

Kim Hughes felt particularly sick, poor bloke. Steve Smith’s going to open – it’s trappings where trappings are needed. But can this team go bulk? The Australian family populace can – they’re turning out in such numbers at the Bucket on Bonce League, where the top 4 is locked and Warner rode a helicopter. We assess Shaun Marsh’s career. TLDR; my kingdom to render others’ pigeons. Finch and SOK get their flowers. There’s a genre-leading catch in the Super Smash, NZ dusts Pakistan, India does so Afghanistan, Virat does Novak. We look again at India v England, before #AskTGC ponders “prospective” women, unrequited interest, and Brian Lara.

259. It's Obvious, with Beau Webster

Australia sweep Pakistan 3-0 in the Tests, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing for the baggy greens thanks to Pakistan’s plucky courage, exciting finds and Qantas’ baggage handlers. Who replaces 26 Test tons at the top of the innings for the Aussies? Are you ready for the outrage when the thing that you want to happen doesn’t happen? #ThankGodItsAllOver says one great, but hasn’t it only just begun? Green, Bancroft, Harris, Renshaw, Smith, Schappell Corby? We investigate all possibilities and then annoy you deliberately because we are owned by the government and they tell us what to say. Join The Navy. Speaking of conspiracy theories, South Africa lose to India in the shortest Test match of all time. Rohit says people need to shut their mouths when coming to India and Sunny fires up the populous by stoking some colonial flames ahead of the England Test series. No one’s happy. Everyone’s annoyed. Nothing is good. 20 year old Phoebe Litchfield has had a storming series in India as Australia claim the ODI series 3-0 and Ellyse Perry gets a message from the greats to celebrate her 300th. That’s before we get into more pitch chat in the BBL as we head into the business end of school holidays. So chuck a bucket on your head, mentally prepare yourself for your first week back at work and start remembering what day it is because 2024 looks like more of the same.  If you want to support The Grade Cricketer, please join us on Patreon at https://www.Patreon.com/gradecricketer  where you get #AskTGC Fridays every week and access to the entire back catalogue of Patreon work that has been going for 3 years now.

257. Our New Fortress? with Aaron Finch

Australia wins by 360 runs. Warner has a tonne, Gaz has half a thousand, The Bison’s free, The Cartel’s purring. But what is Perth? Whatever you want it to be, I guess. A fortress. A money pit. A cyber cauldron. A shit tip. Thanks for coming anyway, Pakistan. See you on Boxing Day for nose exhalations, walking in and out of rooms, Blobbying our way through the three weeks of the year Australians let the cricket wash over them. And yes, the BBL is back. We have a new set, by the way. Aaron Finch is on the couch, talking World Cups, retirement, commentary, Hardik v Rohit, and sort of/not really getting dropped. Once that’s done, we return to the new set to discuss the looming IPL auction. That’s not to be confused with the mock auction. Talk about turning dolls over and going to work! Bulk Rupees for Starc and Head, one assumes. The women take on India in a Test starting at the Wankhede on Thursday. Yes, we call for shit tips. South Africa v India. West Indies v New Zealand. Jofra playing for his old club. AskTGC is about drugs, cover drives and simulated orgasms.

252. Can Australia Jag The World Cup? with Adam Gilchrist

We start this week's episode with a Crows Feet review of Stuart Broad's comments amid the chaos of Lord's, while promoting his new book. He's good, isn't he? The World Cup remains India's to lose, but are Australia showing signs of resurgence to the point where they could jag this thing? Warner's being a coat, the Bin Lid has whacked a couple of tennis balls, blokes are on the golf course and Punter is using words like deplorable! Looking good from here.  Adam Gilchrist is on the show to discuss his World Cup experiences, his memories of getting turned over by Bangladesh in 2005, beating South Africa in 2007, facing India in 2003 and what highlight packages of his we can expect over the summer.  There's also Greg Chappell's GoFundMe, Steve Smith's property portfolio, Sheffield Shield drama and a WBBL update. That's before we get into #AskTGC where a concerned father wonders why his son chose cricket over basketball.

251. Pumping Around, with Kim Garth, Tess Flintoff & Matt Roller

We are midway through the World Cup and it's fair to say that no one knows anything, none of it matters because India is a nearly unbackable favourite and the ICC are meeting at the end of the tournament anyway to decide the future of the format. Hope my team is good by the end of next week. Unfortunately Adam Zampa is not on the show, but Matt Roller from ESPNCricInfo is and he joins us from Bangalore in India to tell us how much air one can chew, if any of the teams near India are good and what the feeling is around the World Cup generally, from a fan's perspective.  Finally, Kim Garth and Tess Flintoff from the Melbourne Stars join us in the studio to discuss being rolled for 29, pumping around Europe before a call-up to the Australian squad, cricket in Ireland, Alyssa Healy's hand, Grace Harris hitting sixes with a broken bat and stupid questions men ask.

250. How Do You Beat India? with Shane Watson & Gideon Haigh

We’re back, baby! Yep, definitely. Australia’s off the mark, noses are harder, someone said “lift!” and now the Cup is surely ours. Sure, India appear completely unbeatable, but that’s their problem: no one wants to lead the Melbourne Cup at the first furlong (or some shit)! Shane Watson joins to add credibility to all of the above. Elsewhere, Bancroft and Renshaw record hundreds, Caleb Jewell is of interest, and Michael Neser is Australia’s best bat. The Women handle the Windies and the covers, and we acknowledge the 1973 team, with Sharon Tredrea et al. We then speak with cricket writing titan Gideon Haigh about the future of the game, and his next move after departing The Australian. Following Gideon, AskTGC appropriately drips with prose. That’s right, it’s Pat Cummins erotic fiction. Thanks.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Is Australia Cooked? with Jake Fraser-McGurk and Bharat Sundaresan

The thing that happened last is the thing that happens forever, so we write Australia off for World Cup '24, until the next show, next week. India are pretty good. So is South Africa and New Zealand. So, one game in, unfortunately only one spot remains. Before then, we meander through Shield and domestic matters, such as a heckler with a dildo and megaphone at the Shield and PlayHQ privacy options. Elsewhere, three anonymous Lord's blokes get absolutely dealt with, but one will be back for next Ashes to do bulk damage. Australia's Women once again maintain safety - helps when H Matthews isn't knocking about, and looks like cricket at the Olympics is ON. Either that or Lacrosse - let's see what lobs in Mumbai. Jake Fraser-McGurk joins to talk world records and sliding into ABdV's areas, and Bharat Sundaresan gives us the actual lowdown from Lucknow. #AskTGC concerns father-in-law dynamics and selfishness, and then indulgently slides into your hosts own failures in this domain. Cheers.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

248. Is This The Last Serious World Cup? with Spencer Johnson & Daniel Brettig

With the World Cup starting on Thursday, Australian domestic cricket once again commencing and, most importantly, Round 1 of "Premier" cricket getting underway, it's time for us to reflect on wasted Saturdays. Who will win the World Cup? Is it India's to lose? What hope does Australia have? Can England defend the crown?  Should ODI's just be confined to World Cups? Incoming MCC President Mark Nicholas thinks so.  Meanwhile Hayley Matthews plays one of the all-time great innings in Australia, scoring 132 off 64 in West Indies' world record run chase at North Sydney Oval. Is the gap closing? Do we like it? No.  Dan Brettig is on the show to preview what we suspect is going to be a 'low' summer in Australia, rather, one that doesn't involve India or England, and what I might mean for blooding new trappings for the eyes.  Spencer Johnson joins us from his home in South Australia to tell us about his journey from West Torrens to representing his country, via the Big Bash, The Hundred and MLC.

247. Me Think It Mazing, with Jimmy Neesham and Alex Malcolm

We’re back! Because when there’s international-cricket-with-actual-jeopardy, we can only kneel to hoover up these last remaining crumbs. Along the way we’ve also got Stokes selling salad stories and quoting Spiderman, lid-lifting about Bairstow and Piers gear, hard-hitting journalism about Modi’s India/Bharat and the BJP, and why the World Cup will be perversely good. New Zealand all-rounder and debutant Father Jimmy Neesham joins us to talk about light horses and environments, while CricInfo’s Alex Malcolm lays bare Australia’s issues ahead of next week’s tournament. AskTGC comes in from Loose McNasty, pertaining to impossible social dynamics caused by one’s identity as “The Cricketer”.

Retain [verb]: continue to have (something); keep possession of. While England stroke their chins soberly, pondering morality and the impact of clouds on children, Australia’s grubby little convict mitts clutch the urn, with g-strings and court jester hats close by.

244. The Truth of Cricket, with Alex Malcolm

Major League Cricket is here and so is Zampa's reference to the 20th of April. Is it good? Are we watching? What does The Star Spangled Banner mean to powerplays? Australia have successfully retained the Women's Ashes, but this is of course not enough, despite it being good for the game. The best series ever though; Alyssa Healy thinks not. India absolutely smash the West Indies in the 1st Test. How will splitting up the islands benefit anyone? Do the West Indies just need to WANT IT more? Alex Malcolm from ESPNCricInfo joins us in the studio to preview the 4th Men's Ashes Test at Old Trafford. It's some really nuffy cricket chat but also we complain about why bad things happen to the team that we like and how nothing is fair. #AskTGC comes in from Scotland and also Edmonton, Canada.

242. The Colonial Leash

We emerge from obstacles technical and travel to drag ourselves to the microphone for a late crack at the scenes from Lord’s. We pore over events legally, philosophically, sociologically, tribally, viscerally, clumsily, and in grade terms. Also, Stokes and Smith can play. Following a rare defeat at The Oval overnight, Alyssa Healy claims her team "is allowed to lose a game of cricket". Very interesting! Scotland look poised to hurdle the full-member only World Cup, and AskTGC ponders the real meaning of the Spirit of Cricket, as well as whether or not his question should have included some "cock stuff".

241. It's A Cult, with Barney Ronay

We record this from The Oval in south London the day before The Lord's Test match, where anything can happen but one thing is for certain, this is very cult-like and we're having a nice time. Barney Ronay stops in to talk about the good things and the things we are allowed to question. What is tackles? What is Tongue? Speak in absolutes and with such certainty forever. Never change. Do push ups. We celebrate Ash Gardner's 12 wicket haul in the women's Test, the hopefully bright future of 5 day Tests for women and also if we'll accept anything other than a clean sweep. Nathan Lyon is about to embark on his 100th consecutive Test match for Australia, while England have already named their spinner-less 2nd Test starting XI. Why? There's other news about first pitches at The Olympic Stadium, West Indies failure in Zimbabwe, Netherlands' success and some other, more irreverent, stuff in-between.

237. What These Ashes Could Be, with Alex Malcolm

A bit quiet in our niche cricket wheelhouses this week; almost like the schedule has been cleared to talk about one thing only. Anyway, Hazlewood is maybe getting fit, Jaiswal is in as a reserve, KL Rahul enjoyed himself, and Sabba made a tonne off 34 rocks. Oh, and the IPL Final was postponed 24 hours, and we recorded beforehand. On a serious note, Meg Lanning is out of the Ashes due to medical reasons and we wish her the best. ESPNCricinfo’s Alex Malcolm joins us for some good, earnest Ashes cricket chat, before AskTGC references Wisden, internet dickheads, Ian Bell masks, and crisps/chips.

235. Like To See Them Do It Against Our Boys, with Adam Zampa and Barney Ronay

The Ashes is upon us, and this time it really is The Ashes. Of cricket. Literally. The flaming, dying embers of the game as we know it, which then become actual ashes, followed by bulk bunce in Saudi Arabia or whatever. Nah, not really, because Stokesian captaincy and the Bazball revolution are here to Save Cricket, which if nothing else, permits the hosts early moral superiority points in the 8-week War Of Words which precedes the 6 week Test series. Also, Australia plays India for the actual championship of the thing, which when you think about it makes sense as a warm-up to the main event. The main event being a golf trip in Liverpool. Normal and good. In and around all that discussion is Barney Ronay and Adam Zampa. Onto more familiar matters – the schedule for Australia's home summer has been released with Pakistan, West Indies and South Africa all coming out. Cricket Australia is offering early bird discounts before June 6 - all you have to do is sign up to the Australian Cricket Family at cricket.com.au/acf. Happy to be offering discounts on bunce for a day out at the cricket. Get around it, and it, you. In a circular motion etc. We also talk IPL, ICC distributions, and the social and cultural undercurrents at play on the major existential matters facing cricket, according to two blokes off the Internet. An English cuck writes in for #AskTGC about God knows what in a story about France and a West Indian, and we finish with a visceral minute via “Ginger Century”, who makes a strange, potentially northern English, noise at the end. Can anyone tell us what that noise was? Not in a “secret sound” way – genuinely don’t know what the noise was. And of course you would take Faf’s rig, you TOW-TAL SLAG!

234. India Beat Australia 4 Times In A Row

India win the Border Gavaskar series for the 4th time in a row but not before Usman’s emotional hundred, Cam Green’s first hundred, Shubman’s return hundred and Kohli’s drought-breaking hundred. 22 wickets in 5 days. Good stuff, fellas! To that end, we review the series as a whole and what we learnt, if anything. I think it’s that Axar Patel is Bradman. New Zealand have done it again in absolute thriller in Christchurch against Sri Lanka. All the best, lads. The WPL makes us feel safe and scared and we also learn about peripheral characters we’ve not heard of before. Temba Bavuma scores his first hundred in 7 years and Maharaj ruptures his achilles while celebrating a wicket against a West Indian team that hasn’t won an away series in nearly 30 years. Shaun Marsh retires from first class cricket this week, so we ponder if what we got was enough. #AskTGC is from a mix of characters called Anon, Fairbody and The Snake which sees weed brownies, MDMA and bowel movements all combining for a troubling tale of mixing drugs with run outs.

233. Will Ahmedabad be Ahmedagood? with Ramachandra Guha & Trent Copleand

Sure, Australia made history with one of its finest ever performances, but instead we ask: what’s doing vis a vis decks, India? But seriously, Australia was good: Carey kept masterfully, the spinners stirred, Smith marshalled, and is there anything better than seeing The Bin Lid On A Shit Tip? We move to Ahmedabad where Modi will hold court in his 132,000K seat stadium where no one can get a ticket. Elsewhere, The WPL has started explosively. It’s a red-letter day for quality women’s cricket, and a horrendous day for Australian domination. Thankfully, two white blokes are here to explain why. Some other international stuff happened involving England, Bangladesh, South Africa and the Windies, too. Thanks to our guests this week, Trent Copeland and Ramachandra Guha, who each brought class, grace, intelligence and logic to an otherwise meandering offering, which concluded with a question about getting champed mid-Coitus. Speaking of being champed, if you’re considering abandoning TGC on account of us speaking to Mr Guha, thanks for your support, and see ya later (champ). Thanks. Learn more about your ad choices.

232. Is The Australian Women's Team The Greatest Of All-Time?

New Zealand pull off their greatest ever Test win in Wellington after being asked to follow on. England are still having fun though. Harry Brook hundreds, Joe Root's reverse laps, Kane Williamson's record breaking innings and Michael Bracewell forgetting how to run. The 2nd Test had it all. Is the Australian Women's team our greatest of all time? Their second World Cup three-peat certainly has us asking questions about what's next for our women. Gallipoli? Southern Cross tattoos? Sledging? Brett Lee in the sheds? And we look ahead to the 3rd Test between India and Australia where one thing is for certain: we're about to get very angry about things again. Fortunately, Greg Chappell has the answers. #AskTGC pertains to English gloating and online discourse. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

231. TGC On Tour | Darker Truths

Another game, another capitulation, another meltdown. After a promising start, Australia found a new way to fall to India, tangled in Ashwin and Jadeja’s web. Thankfully, Healso and Dos are on the case, one with a masterclass in trackies, another with a literal broom on the pitch. Very simple, Chalk. Elsewhere, Australia’s women do it with their eyes closed, so we provide news of their impeding win ahead of time. No doubt that will be appreciated. Bazball reign supreme in Mt Maunganui, so as a coping mechanism we focus on journalist reactions and the sheer wetness of The Nighthawk.

229. Is India Bigger Than The Ashes?

It’s “the jewel in the crown”, “the toughest test in cricket”, and, according to Steve Smith, “bigger than The Ashes”. Yes, Usman Khawaja, The Grade Cricketer and Australia heads to India to commence the final six months in the history of Test cricket - and we’re frothing. We cover visas, selections, purity, Ashwin impersonators, big boy breakthroughs and other obscure matters ahead of the first Test in Nagpur, starting Thursday. Elsewhere, the Scorchers once again win the Bucket on Your Bonce League, and deservedly. Cooper Connolly is all jaw and sex, AT does the business, and they’re probably good because they ignore much of the guest player gear (with the understandable exception of Faf). But do we need to sell it all to India? This is the question of the Asian Century. Jofra’s back and Pez would really like x2 tickets to Lord’s on Days 1 and 2. Completely unlikely, but would like to go with Dad. In the context of all causes it is not even remotely important. And yet, here we are.  Our Women should win the World Cup and break records - anything else will be deeply concerning. Moreover, they have one game to get themselves a massive WPL contract. All the best, friends. Then we talk about 90s jingles for 10 minutes, before AskTGC wanders through the common state of delusion one engages when returning to the game in an oversize golf shirt.

228. Scarified, with Steve O'Keefe

Steve O'Keefe steps into the guest co-host chair this week as we bring you a special show, in-person, from North Sydney Oval. Are the Scorchers too good and too scary? What is a spin camp and what is a scarified deck (and how do you say it?). England can’t play white ball cricket anymore, Mott Ball is a myth and sounds a bit like an Irishman saying Moth Ball, India and New Zealand are doing highly memorable white ball stuff too, Dane van Niekerk suffers at the hands of South African self-sabotage, AskTGC concerns milking linguistics, group sex with a peripheral England cricketer, and being appalled with both your cricketing and sexual technique after reviewing it on video.

227. V600 for Vendetta, with Dan Christian, Steve Eskinazi and Linny

The cricket industrial complex rolls on mercilessly, dragging our tired minds and eyes with it, so it’s a BUMPER show this week. Higgos takes an overdue breather, so Pez steps in with guest co-host Ed "Ted" Cowan. The Aussie women annihilate Pakistan, Ash Gardner speaks up about Australia Day, Smith’s doing savant stuff, Dan Christian and Steve Eskinazi join the show, Cricket NSW is a DISGRACE according to reports, Shubman Gill goes white ball daddy, David Cameron watches Alex Hales tonne up at the Sheikh Zayed, Root does something in South Africa, Bored Apes hack RCB Twitter, West Indies cricket may cease to exist as an entity, AskTGC ponders whether or not WinViz is “nonce gear”, and Michael Clarke limps his way into a story that not even a Chat GPT, super robot could produce for the Daily Mail. We have only ever been able to cover the bizarre breadth of this strange, strange game with the support of one of Australia’s best fledgling brands – Budgy Smuggler. But this show is a fond farewell to that friend. After five years of sterling support, Budgy Smuggler and TGC bids farewell to one another. We catch up with CEO Adam Linforth to express our thanks properly, and to celebrate our fruitful association, Linny is throwing 20% off the entire range of Budgy Smuggler to the end of the month if you simply enter the code “RIG”. On that note, if you want to chat about being this podcast’s presenting sponsor, get in touch with us at [email protected] Watto at T20 Stars is backing you, too. Sorry about the value.

226. Future of Cricket Stuff, with Todd Greenberg

We get 45 minutes with “Players’ Boss” Todd Greenberg this week, to traverse the Afghanistan situation, the future of cricket, broadcast rights, Warner, and everything else other executives don’t seem to want to talk about. Elsewhere, India and Australia announce their squads, the Amazon Doc dropped with some incredible, as-yet unreported revelations, the BBL vibe remains strong-if-cartoonish, Meg Lanning’s back, and AskTGC ponders which cricketer best represents ones chop style. Budgy has both us and you covered wherever you are the world. There’s a new drop of gear across underwear, party shirts, Christmas jumpers, golf wear, stubbies, bucket hats.

225. Greatest Summer Ever

A drab draw closes out the Test summer, and we’re asking: what the fuck was that? Sure Australia destroyed all-comers, passing records and milestones with frightening ease - but why couldn’t they deliver this specific thing exactly as we wanted it? And why did Cummins declare on Khawaja? The reason will shock you (he wanted to win). Elsewhere, there’s a bit of money knocking about for the TV rights, but not as much as last time, and apparently CA and 7 are - in executive parlance - “all good”. The BBL is trending up for the first time in years, helped by contentious catches, Mankads, and Chris Lynn topping the charts. But he’s gone to some other league now. Normal. Pakistan and New Zealand play a riveting Test match before the umpires decided, “nah, can’t have that”, and SKY equals the Czech Republic’s Sabawoon Divizi’s 3 T20i tonnes v Sri Lanka. Congratulations, SKY. #AskTGC is about taking women on dates to an indoor cricket centre, and, frankly, drinking problems. Budgy has both us and you covered wherever you are the world.

224. Bucket On Your Bonce, with Matt Short & Alex Malcolm

Is this good or is this the end? Boxing Day delight for the Aussies as we bury our head in the sand like an emu that can't walk backwards. How good's the COAT of arms? What does this mean for the SCG? Can we get a new toy to fuck around with? Something new for the eyes would be nice. Alex Malcolm is in studio to give us some actual analytics and analysis of what cricketers and high performers do. That's before we get into glory holes and how to improve the Big Bash. Matt Short joins us from Adelaide before training to tell us about Rashid Khan's sledging. Pakistan and New Zealand are both batting forever in Karachi. The IPL auction also gets a run, because money is all that matters and it's the biggest flex the IPL and BCCI can give. Fair bit of bunce kicking about to be fair. #AskTGC is about Skull and namedrops several other hall of famers. Budgy has both us and you covered wherever you are the world.

222. Fill Your Boots

It was absolute boot-filling stuff against the West Indies, but now it's 1 vs 2 in the WTC table against South Africa. Brisbane is sold out, then it's Christmas and then it's New Year. David Warner's leadership ban remains, in yet another ugly chapter in the whole, sad debacle. The Big Bash starts today. Is that good? Maybe it's good. Daniel Brettig joins us in studio to discuss Mike Baird becoming the new Chair of Cricket Australia. What does that mean for the average internet user? Ali Martin joins us on a dodgy internet connection from Pakistan (or maybe that was Melbourne's fault) to tell us how amazing this 2-0 series lead has been. Jimmy Anderson is good, Stokes is good, Harry Brook is generational.... but what does it mean for the real series against 'out boys'? The Australia women lose their first match this year, so we completely disown them, as should Indian fans of their team, after yet another series loss in 2022. This time, to Bangladesh. #AskTGC comes in from a very confused father. Budgy has both us and you covered wherever you are the world.

221. Why No One There, Why No One Care, with The Caribbean Cricket Podcast

“Forget the scorecard,” advises Viru. Well, we can’t. Marnus tripled, Smudge doubled red, Gareth took six and Australia (essentially) cantered. It’s all we asked for, but is it enough? Of course not. So fresh, raw meat is mooted in Adelaide, in the form Lance Morris – all sunken eyes, Dieter Brummer salad – because we demand more. Or maybe it doesn’t matter, because Cummins took a knee. No wonder he did he quad. In Rawalpindi, the To and Froms are legitimately revolutionising the game, but will naivety cost them? And is it Test Championship 2’s? Private Equity wants The Hundred, but Thommo won’t get out of bed unless there a couple bil. Bangladesh knock over India in dramatic circumstances in some game or other, our women head to India next week, and AskTGC traverses LBW noncery via an inquisitive little cherub, as well as a two-piecer monstrosity from some wine bin stuff in South Australia.  Budgy has both us and you covered wherever you are the world.

220. Burning For Love

Isn’t it beautiful when blokes just care? Once again our golden generation bails us out of cricketing dystopia in ways “everyday” Australians understand. Forget our systemic sleepwalk into decline, what we really want to know is: who is the alpha? The answer is neither Cummins nor JL, and may surprise you. Elsewhere, blokes continue the eternal quest for social capital, but this time they’re thieving real capital (allegedly), according to Victoria Police. In the old days, focused work on the chest and triceps would do the trick. Nowadays you apparently need bulk sheets to be loved. Separately, Chris Gayle made 95 red in some wheelie bin shit in Dandenong. The PMs XI played, numbers were ascribed to names, and we refuse to know anything about the West Indies. The Strikers are WBBL champions after the Sixers crumbled, begging the question: was there simply too much sun? At least the Sixers still engender safety - the NSW men are weaker than ever and we argue the nation should be concerned. Other countries are playing some cricket, too, and they’re given due respect on this show (about 90 seconds), before the show eventually gives way to material that matters: what strategies exist for minors in team tubs when there’s a bloke called “Felly”?

WASIM AKRAM

A special day in the annals of TGC as we sit down with an all-time great: Wasim Akram. The man of such prodigious and electrifying cricketing ability spends just over 30 minutes with us and we cover some ground: being spotted in the streets, circuiting with Imran, playing in England, hooping it, partying, addiction, and much more. The chat coincides with the release of his memoir: Sultan. Wasim teamed up with Gideon Haigh to produce it, and it’s a tome befitting the stature of the man. It’s published through Hardie Grant, and is available wherever Hardie Grant publishes books. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

FAF DU PLESSIS

TGC lands another white whale, without question, the one with the best obliques and leanest body mass. Faf du Plessis joins us to discuss nearly every sordid and amazing achievement of his glittering career. From being told to sit in a bathtub from his idol, Daryl Cullinan, to taking us into the showers of the Durban dressing rooms during Sandpaper-gate, Faf bares all for TGC. We hear stories of Australian abuse, second only to Brendan McCullum's New Zealand apparently, playing with AB de Villiers with fire in his belly and what it's like to captain RCB while Virat Kohli is in the dressing room. If you get the chance, watch this on YouTube as well because he looks absolutely unbelievable. Even Stoinis raves about his calves.

219. Symphony of A Run Out, with Glenn Maxwell

We start this week with a full dissection of a run out at the non-striker's end in sub-district cricket in Melbourne. Australia have won an ODI series against Drunk England 3s, but is the team winning HARD enough? Steve Smith has found his hands again, though not the captain's armband. Dave Warner's leadership ban is set to be lifted and the WBBL is getting into the business end, but do we like the helmets? Suryakumar Yadav is doing some absolutely wild stuff in New Zealand, not that Virat Kohli saw it. Glenn Maxwell is on the show to tell us about how he broke his leg and what he's been watching on TV since the incident. And #AskTGC takes us into bed with a young Irishman on the eve of graduating uni, watching his countrymen defeat England. Does it get any better than this?

They're calling it the best World Cup ever but Australia is out and no one cares about it anyway.... unless you like T20 in which case it is absolutely sensational. Australia is out of the tournament, so what does this mean for the future of the sport in this country. Ed Cowan helps us out with these big issues and also signals that the start of the summer must be approaching. South Africa submit a new entry into their pantheon of great World Cup chokes.

ADAM ZAMPA

Recorded from a bed at a 1 star hotel in an undisclosed location, Australia's Adam Zampa joins us 24 hours before The World Cup proper begins at the SCG.

HARSHA BHOGLE

We're joined by ornament to the game, Harsha Bhogle, for a one hour, feature-length interview. We wanted it reverent, he wanted irreverence, so we found a middle ground. We traversed the Asian Century, new and old India, run-outs, the future of cricket, Axar Patel's relationship with the stumps, great lines in commentary, birds, blokes bowling in black belts, Kohli clickbait stuff, whether or not we're allowed to come to his house (and why), and several other matters of debatable importance. With enormous thanks to the mighty St Joseph's Cricket Club, Geelong, for hosting us. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

214. World Cup Fever, with Reece Topley

The World Cup is finally here and TGC kicks it off with possibly the loosest show since the last World Cup. Who are the favourites? Is Che La Luna the song of the summer? Will Warner ever captain again? Can Western Australia go all the way after their win over India? What's New Zealand up to? Bharat Sundaresan makes his TGC debut from a seedy hotel in Hobart to give us his insights into his net-relationship with Steve Smith and Reece Topley lets us know of his love affair with Australia, mullets, taking 6/24 at Lord's and the low-down on his current Uber rating. #AskTGC takes us into the urinals at Manuka Oval in the nation's capital and also when sledging a kid's dead dad goes wrong.

ELLYSE PERRY

National and global cricketing icon, Ellyse Perry joins us for a special interview direct from TGC HQ, aka Higgos’ apartment. Arguably Australia’s greatest ever Womens cricketer, Pez generously fields questions on important matters: like her what’s app messages, her defensive positioning for the Matildas, horses, and whether or not she agreed to this interview for image and brand purposes only. Of course, in-between, she speaks with customary eloquence about her career, the growth of womens cricket, and the faux pas’ that blokes can make. Learn more about your ad choices.

211. Spirit

Mankads, mankads, mankads. How do they make us feel? Is that relevant? Should you just stay behind the line or is that too simplified an argument? Is this the new normal? Who owns cricket? Is any of this funny? We discuss it all after the Charlie Dean and Deepti Sharma 'incident' at Lord's. In better news, TGC is back on stage in Melbourne on November 2 and we want you to come along. In even better news still, Cam Green is 2m and Australia's most exciting T20 talent.... that's not in the World Cup Squad. Pakistan and England are embroiled in a 7 match T20 series and it's actually good and interesting! #AskTGC promotes a Triple C for bowlers and we've also been sent in some alarming alphadom stories of Bradman in the showers, talking to New Zealanders.

210. The Last Suckle

September is here and that means that your dreams are about to die.... again. The Road Safety World Series is here and we're cooing about Sachin sitting in 1A while Watto's stable base makes us feel like Australia should win this meaningless tournament. Tim David will debut for Australia this week after he gives us some serious ASMR in the nets. Ben Horne is on the show to discuss another rival Indian league popping up to take away international cricket's best players. England are in Pakistan for the first time in 17 years, but what's Alex Hales like as a bloke? Rachel Haynes retires from international cricket after winning it all and then feeling nothing. #AskTGC ponders whether you can be good at something you've never done and a disturbing dream about Pezza in the urinals.

208. Zimbabwe, with Ryan Burl & Chris Lynn

Let's be honest, literally no one cares about Australia's series win against Zimbabwe in Townsville. We're all here to get around the Zimbabweans for their historic achievements. We get 5/10 hero Ryan Burl on a zoom in between net sessions to talk about the circuit, the casino, the showers, the kit and what the Aussies are like as blokes. Chris Lynn also talks to us while waiting fir his UberEats to arrive about the future of cricket and how many different training shirts he must have. Across the equator, Jonny Bairstow has broken his leg ahead of the 3rd and deciding Test against South Africa at The Oval. India and Pakistan are embroiled in the Asian Cup - a tournament that exists solely so these two teams can play each other as many times as possible. And we're here for it. #AskTGC asks what we are to do with an Overseas player that leaves the ground to chop his girlfriend. Huge news: TGC now has kit!
