3/28/2018
More
As the dust settles on one of the biggest cricket stories for years, Adam & Tony reflect on sandpaper, jaw-dropping press conferences, and the whole ball tampering row. Has the fury of media and fans been appropriate? Or has it all been blown out of proportion? If nothing else, it's overshadowed 58 all out! But we find some time to talk about that too.

3/17/2018
More
Adam & Tony return to the air to discuss England's ongoing winter of cricket. After white ball wins in Australia and New Zealand, are they now the best ODI team in the world?

More
As the dust settles on another disastrous Ashes in Australia, Adam & Tony reflect on England's many, many failings. Why did they make it so hard for themselves? Are the players and management deluded? And, besides dropping Gary Ballance, what happens now? Then they grudgingly give some credit to Australia - all of a sudden, could they have a seriously good team on their hands? And are they now favourites to win in England next year? Plus, thoughts on a breathless, brilliant Test in Cape...

1/3/2018
More
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! England haven't been whitewashed in Australia! Adam & Tony celebrate in style by asking all the important questions. Is Cook back? And if so, is that great news, or just annoying that he couldn't do it when it mattered? And the same question for the team as a whole. Plus, more Steve Smith Is Quite Good chat, Adam goes off on one about Mike Hussey, and Tony startles shop assistants. All this and more on the latest World Cricket Show - support what we do at...
