ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Hamish is joined by Christian to discuss all things Cricket in England including the recent test series win against West Indies, as well as the upcoming series' against Ireland and Pakistan. He's also joined by Pakistani Cricket expert and diehard Mustafa to discuss the upcoming series for Pakistan.

Welcome back to the honable Bokas, thisis EPSURD thorty three Ha was probably the wrong way around on camera, butyeah walking back if you're watching a new tube you've already see seen hishead by now. If you're listening would have no idea, but we've got piastol petpaid a lot of this from the port out of lie. Football Club, AJ, obout, poach,pretending to be paid a pistol and were gentobe discussing croiket.Today all thinks cricket all things, English crooked. It's going to be quitea jampacked episode. I think MI end up being a little bit longer than theusual, but we're going to be reviewing the England westerneseries and we'regoing to be previewing. The Pakistan England test series and the EnglandIsland one day, series which ill be starting out the night that this comesout. So looking forward to that one and wher teres not really the other way.We could have spaced it out ever so I would h ve like to have done at oneepisode on the one day. Is One absodom tests but caus ets only like a week orless than a week in between the start of those two series, it wasn't reallyfeasible to have that many crooket episodes in such short time. But anyway,I didn't really give you the chance to speak Walcanpill Cha. Are you bigfellow yeah, not too bad Ma Yourself? Yeah, I'm not bad. My sleep schedulewas absolutely cooked at the moment, which is a bit of a downe but part fromthat everythingis going welf got a neck warmeron. If you, if you can well, itdoesn't matter. If you can say o I'v Just said T which I have to say is an underridedfashion pace like notn in terms of looks, but in terms of comfortabilityUm. You know 'cause the jacket and trackies they worn your whole body upand th. It just leaves your neck hanging. So a chicky neck warmot that Iuse of skiing does tha. Does a job. Iam definitely definitely looks as well.wethe other thing is kind of hides the Jew line. U, I don't know 'cause Kindof just makeslice you just end up having no neck, but anyway um it's great comfortability, so Irecommend it to anyuone listening so without feter Jew. Should we start withour votes. Rcane start with our votes an then going to Wy Wi've, giving themthe boats. So once again, we did our five four three two one for this thirdtest. Um, if you haven't realized already Ingla on the third test, prettycomprehensively it did go to last day but um. It was pretty clear caught the wholeway it was just rain made it m a little bit a bit of a squaky bom ton. So ifGig for the English boys, but that was pretty calital in the end, wasn't it and then tha got en the sers when,obviously they needed to win that one to get the western trophy all the newlynamed Richards, both in trophy and they successfully did that so in terms ofthe votes once again, pretty similar stuff five vords strew abroad wat a testmatch, he took ten wickets and he made sixty two on the first innings. So Um,probably one of the more dominant test, Bouchers I've seen well to be honest.Ste benchceck is pretty body doin it in those first ones, first couple, butthis was next level, so broade took six for in the first intings and then hetook fourfar in the second, and by no means were they junk time Poles. Yes,he actually didn't get a bowout and the second anings. Despite getting the lastwicked, he got Blackwood. Oh, he got right, she's a night watchman, but Heis,no Heis, no Um he's no rookie with the bat he'sactually got quite a good technique and then he got the openers out and in thefirst innings he once again got Buthwai out. He got chased, he got hold ofDowae and he did kind of clean out the tailr with Cornwalland Roch, but takenothing away from him there and with a stick. It used to be a very goodbossman. Didn't he and he's kind of fallen away recently. I know you alwaystalk about. I think, once he broke his foot or something no, I was hitting, hewas hitting the head. Okay, it was about Mitrel, John Simor, siy Um, can't remember who it was, but someonewho's bowling, express, Hian, ead and Eurekan ever since hen he's not reallybeen the same with about, but I I cadn't Le, I didn't watch the sinings,but he might have just hiked, but he made sixty two or forty five, whichyou'll take any day in the week, really helped England. Now who were in alittle bit of a pickle, they were sitting at three for Niney,four Fou hundred and twenty ended up making three seventy and that firstinning so deservedly so bought the...

...nanimous five votes from US Numbe for we differed. I had Oly Popefor that reason that I mentioned they were in a bit of a whole. Fourth, onetwenty he came out made a match, winning ninety one bit similar to myreasoning with holder in that first test, although as Yourf four both wentto Rory Buns, who did make more runs in the test match. I just feel as thoughthis ninety one really mset up the match for England, his partnership withJos Batlar was worse. I think a hundred and forty yeah a hundred and forty onthe dot and that yeah it was a real match. Sabere he was out of form. No,his position wasn't up for grabs or anything, but he neededsome runs for his own confidence and he came out and unfortunately Foshal atthe tongue, but um yeah. Ninety one deserved of appause really, and so Igave him the foulboats Yo went with worry bans. Why did you go with himyeah? Well, after broad, obviously T wa, it was pretty tough splitting the nextthree or so like they were all in with a sniff, but yeah burns probably didn'tlook as as good at the crase as pope did, but in the end he made us sixtyand then he made a ninety so that Ninehad just got him over the line.Just based on the accumulation of runs pretty much. Yeah hundred N cent agree.He I gave him two Vert Gav pop two so've done the OL reversal there, umyeah. I can berely understand why ID go to him for me if it was the other wayround. So the ninety was in the first inning S. hundred percent would givehem in four votes, but just the fact that the night he kind of came in ajunk time situation when the lead was already like two hundred in the first ings. He made fifty sevenand Um kind of helped. Although Pevan Batla had to do the hard yards, he didset it up a little bit. Otherwise you know pope and buttle would have beencoming out at like four fo fifty or something Um but yeah. I understandyou're raising there. I think he scoled the most runs in the match. Combineacross the Tuining, so fair enough, then number three. We differ. I got toDessbatler you go to Chris wolks. I go works, one vote, probably one of like the betder performances youcan get for one fort. How come you gave wokseither three? Well, it was just a it's. The old liketoss up between batting and bowling, but ardist thought his five s prettyunreal five and fifty in the second innings, and he when the rain was looking like it mighttake the wint away from us. He stepped up got the job done, skiddled them, soyp gave him a three yeah. He Yeah. As I said, it was tough to split him and the other batsmen thatwere chipping in with like sixties and things yeah, and he got hopen Brooks who werelooking to mountabit of aparnrship. They were both in their twenties andthirty, so too big wickeds there he did kind of clean wall. The thing isWestern: Eastern't really have a tail in this test, but um did't get outholde dowage com wil further down the Arta bit. Five from the second innings welldeserved, yet once similar to Ro Burns. For me, it was just um the fact that it was in the secondinnings I valued it a bit less than Butler's Um inport, an H, sevety andafter wet IV been highly critical b. not a fan of him in the test side stillam pretty jubious about. I don't think his spot should be a guarantee for therest of the summer, but that sementy is definitely born, Om some time andrealistically he'll probably see out the summer now, which I don't think hedeserves to but Um. You know Jostbol of fifty es itguaranteed extra year in the side, according to the England selectors, butum it canot be taken away from. It was acrucial sixty Um England could have been looking like if, if Buga went outquick here and they got into the Tai bit faster, who knows, Enon whol ha gotball hr for two hundred, but he hung around. Let's hed to the get the runs, and he also made a fewhimself so really saved annd stad. U Simultaneously The tests for England. As I said, we've already mentioned, thepeople whave got two votes and I gavewokes one. You go root, one which Ithink is quite surprising yet M, yeah hat. That could be partly due bitof bias. I'm a fan of him, but in that second ining tere was the classical rot.One day I were just picking gaps and who did also take, I believe three,maybe four catches in the slips, but I both say that Butler was pretty unluckyon this one Um yeah, the fact root was not out as well.I guess is alself factor B, ut yeah,...

...not about me, like it', a fairsuggestion. He was probably sick. If I had to pick one for me yet he tookthree catches that slip. Aa took six, though so k soviously with theGLOVESUTBI o a different story: Yea Fo, methe, Rase, Astin Goboot, once againthe junk time kind of consideration, but now fair enough, he did look verygood Um. There was a point there wayangwer looking abit stagnant and itwas kind of like what is the point ot this little cameo, and then he reallycame out. He excelated himself and also got burns going by rotating the strikeso Um. At this point they had basically already guaranteed the wind orguaranteed the winner of the drawe, but he really put the final nail in thecoffin and let Broadan Wok palled them to victory. So That's r five votes thattook us to our lingaboard SI aethe ith this system- I haftr admitit's a bit floawed in a threemouth series. 'cause you can basically justhave one t good test and all of a sudden you're up there. So this illwork better in terms of like who's, the twenty twenty Paer, O vear and stufflike that or just like who's, the English cricketer Teea, but it stillworks forthis. So the official womens were chaste and broad, so they gave oneto each team. I think they normally do that. I don't think it was like a tieor anything Um, but and for me that my opinion was valdated, sochasonbroad actually finished on six votes. For me, U chase picked up thebulk of hus in that second test. W Wa took firefune made. Fifty anbroadobviously picked up the five for his third test performance. Umholder anstokes were battled it out for sat position. They were tied on five voats and for you, afete, say Proe woill feed feelingly.If I did have to pick one play whois the best in the series, I stillprobably would have gone stokes, but I don't know it's tough to deny. I'mproad of that Y had sterves and seven roads, spoo on six votes, Shanongabren,five foats, so Um, pretty pretty handy party an frombreath of us. I rite. I write our selections there. I think broad Chayandstokes were definitely the top three players. Well Chase was definitely thetop west. Indian and broaden stoaks were definitely the top two. What dofyou think of the Seris as a whole? Were he impressed or did you think thestandard was pretty poor? Well, no, it was good to have creet back. I mean ithad been a while Um. In the end it was, it was probably the result. Indian was probablyexpected, but I was I was actually impressed with the West indies, not somuch in the Thir test, but especially the first and even the second test. Imean we were expecting a whitewash and I thought they their Middle Lord. Iactually stepped up, which I wasn't expecting yeah hundred a CEENGREE. Ithink the main differences between the teams in the end was think it was a west Indian hundred. Yetno, there wasn't so a lone of them and like Ilike, the English players, whoere lot of them mad seventies and eighties. I don't think apart fromBlackwood in that first test, I think most the fifties were fifties andsixties. So I think that was one of the main differences that the western theseplayers couldn't go on. You're looking at Shamar Brooks Cratebreathway, even rost in chase all of the maid fifties, and I don't thinkthey crack Seventi, so wallpart from Blackwood. He Ad Ma aseventy five fxman sixty eight. So I think if they would turn those intosome big hundreds, especially Briathwade, at the top of the order, Ithink they could have set up a few tests Um in terms of the worst, an hesbailing. I think we new, I think, Itas Bot as been expected. I think theywould have been very disappointed in ther inability to break that openingparnership early. I think Roy Burns bout for at least an hour and everysingle one of his innings, so, which is something you would have notassociated with a Westinas. You thought, theyre ing bowling pair with a new ballwould probably be in their strength. So that's probably an area of concern forthem. I think Rustan chasboard really well Um. We were kind of joking cominginto it saying like use just a partone, spinner and stuff, but in the end hetook ten wickets in ninety four over so like nothing, special strike out offifty six average of thirty four. So for someone who'se, primarilyaboutspinneeded, pretty well, and in that last test they pickrercamecolmmoll and he still looked like the superior spin out of the two N, whichwas quite interesting to know it. An Rade think comwall was quite unlucky. Ithink about pretty well for no wickets, Um Bei. Think England managers perfectly.I think the boiling rotation worked beautifully, not a single English,Boler old, more than seventy overs, whereas CI roage about a hundred andtwenty Jason Holdabout a hundred and ten Gabriel Boa hundred, so thatrotation policy worked really well. I...

...think, and the Westernnews don't haveany cricket now. I don't think I'm not too sure. What's coming up for themnext, but England who have another three test, yeris against Pakistan. Ithink that was really important for them to not. You know, be fully nackedgoing into that Pakistan series, because Pakistan are probably a betterteam on paper anyway, but when Ar really competitive series, which wedidn't predict each test or bit a couple f times, it was mainly due torain. All tests went to the fifth day Um. I think two tests went down to thefinal session so as pretty rare nowadays in Tesk Cricket, I'm used tothe Australian tests being all over Red Rover by like the third session on Day,one when Australi's, like none for two hundred and twenty Ubena, really goodtype contested series in the end. England deserve the win and you knowthey just kind of flex their muscles and those last thotests ahand showedhow Gould they woud they can be on Thai Day, but I think I think, they're lucky though I thinkif Ingla may beplayed a better team. I know it's. I such same situation forboth sides, but I think of England paid beter quality team. I think they couldhave been caught out in those first two tests, ecause they weren't playingtheir best brand of crickets O. I think they may be lucky that they had monwarmaut, tes, Serias or anything, but I'm doing they're lucky that theyplayed the Westernnews first as opposed to Pakistancause. I think if Pakistancame out firing in those First Tho tests, I'm not sure if England couldhave held them off B. that's a good call, and I liked that they got quite a fewplayers involved. Obviously you don't want to be copping and changing all thetime, but I think they use like fifteen or sixteen players, so um good good toget everoninvolved in the squad and we are reacting to our predictions.Actually, I just listened to it before we came on air. We both had strokes forthe most English runs, which was correct. He was the top English runscore by O hundred and thirty and and he was toranscore in the wholeseries Boue on hundred and thirty. So he averaged ninety point: Seven five inthe series one time one fifty just showed he is one of the best plays inthe world, one of the best batsmen in the world. He showed that he can patfas. Pat Slau did everything, but it as to be said the AFIINS did quite well.Do you think yeah ye impressive Ben Siply Yeah Wafter the second test we wer? I think we made the comment that Berns neededto lift and he certainly did in the third Tese so yeah, definitely overalland even cruelly. I know he didn't open, but I'll put him in that category aswell. He play that good niney. So I was goodto say as well: Yeah Um, something that Burns insibly. Probablydeep down aren't too happy Boutis like that that they sity squared a bighundred bought Burns and then Bern scotes. Ninety in that second innings,but theyre both still struggled to convert their starts,as I said Burns in all five innings about for more than an hour, and heonly came away with one school bigger than sixty, I'm citing at sommingpersonally Heud like to work on, but with such a good mitdle ater with root,stoaks and pipe. I think the Englanduteam would be happy if theywent out. You know about it for three or four hours and made sixty, although I'm sure themselves they wouldbe rather tunning up instead of like the people in the Middle Oder. So Ithink ite was a pretty good test. Heris Fingin, Um Alvosa, the probably wouldave, walked to winaba ye, but no much wewrong for them. I'm reacting to allthe predictions IH predicted broad for most wickets, you predicted arche so for bur, add farmer, wickets and Works Aratsaidbohead. Sixteen aterlly had four so yeah. Look I finally I'm finallyrealizing that ACA isn't what we all hat. We all thought Ye was, after thatAty Erios, yeah Um an I have to admit our western. Thesepredictions were pretty uneducated, but we did go hope for most runs. I think he was sitting at seventh forthe Western I'm pretty bad from us. We got h. Wegot drawn into that technique and MIT wee Wenit Cameo Ri, who was the fourthat we get Ege for the Westerknees, but he was only three wickets off the top,so lat the worst call from and not Nehe was on zero or one or something afterthe first test. Yeah we made a light. POLN ING took one there in the firsthouse so and then Gabriel. You know how Ho is nine Forin that first testholdero six for in the first inings chase, how o fire Fasso Roc was really onlyjust one big call away from being up there with them. So that's a Foship for that Um...

...test, serios. Ias Really Realy good towatch also sad loved the commetary. I don't think there's a better twocricket pountries in terms of commentary not interested to see whoPakistan have, I'm not sure surn they'l have like Ramy's Raja he's, usually thecommentator for them, but Um yeah, bicle, holding Bishop and thenobviously the Ng commontators Nowab bumble up in Manchester they're justlegends to the game, so that was awesome to listen to m something I'mprobably going to miss in the upcoming test series in terms of the Weld TestChampionship. This did count towards that England, SI D. ' I don't actuallyknow where they seaded coming into it, but England now sit in third behindIndia and Australia they're not too far away from Australia.Actually, so I think if they, I think, if they do a whitewash of this nextseries, I think they over take Australia and would send second andWesternes got himself off the bottom of the table, but sitin seventh aboveSouth Africa and Bangadesh and below the other six sides. So that's prettymuch it. So now we're going to talk about the England Pakistar Seris, we'vegon Ta Pakistani Fan, Mstafa who's appeared on an NFL episode before he iswaiting in the wings, but we're going to quickly talk about England first,because he was a Pakistan expert. So we'll savehim for the English chap but um in terms of this Pakistan series. Whatwould you like to see from England is? Are you happy with this team that wentinto that third test, or do you understeand any changes? Well, to behonest, even though it works really well, I don't think we'll be going inwith Um that many Bowlas 'cause we played theextra Bolakuzar stokes. It wasn't fit to bowl ill. Think, that's! I don'tthink you can go in with six bowlers into a test match I'd, probably rathera battlman come back in for me, that would be zact cruelly give him anothershot, but other than that, I I wouldn't really change anything well, which porwould you drop? May I've seen you just ro yourself out of that one il actuallyet out a bathroom Tut You'e, not I'm! I'm going to drop works but as aresting thing, not as I Wud Dropim, because the thing is, if you restAndersen and Archo theyve, they rested the second test, so ad restworks PLAAnson in Manchester, because you know it's his stadium or whatever and thenI'd maybe rest him for the second test and thet may be rest broad for thethird test, but, like I'm sure the bowlers hatethis rotation thshbut. I think it's a good idea, especially the first coupleseries back from a for month break so ye H. I would rest works but we'll seewhat they do. I don't think you can go with four pastebowls and best you knowbest idn't bowl single over yeah. I was actually I did think about that thismorning, but I guess, if you don't need them good thing. Yeah, I wouldn't say,drop him, though, because as we saw a chase in Colmol actually can sping.Quite a lot M, say iwould go with them. I'd, probably, I think that's a fairshout, but I know I now no longer think archer is in the best three, so I mean works. He works, hes really put hisfoot forward with that th last performance, but yeah sthink. I don't think archewill play all three of them, maybe even though maybe they drop outand bring back current or would yea potentially it would be a double change, so yeah Um thot interested sea. They doim. Obviously the squads on Ou. It doesn't start for another six days orsomething, but first test is in Manchester Tha th next thos inSouthhampton so be interesting to see what they do, but I hundredcent agree.I think you're got to get Zack crawly back in there as it you saw in thefirst innings. If it wasn't for that popen Butler parnership, they couldhave been in a bit of a pit being bowled out for two hundred or something.So I think you definitely have to have six batsmen in the Keper um yeah.That's just what I think anyway, so they um anything else. You WANTT TALC on aboutEngland before we get into it Um. Not Really. I do think that Um, asyou touched them before, Pakistan should be a little bit more of a challenge. Interms of the opposition, so we'Llh we have to play as we did in the secondand third test to get up, but it should be should be agood series again. Yet, actually I thin k t could be a really good series.Obviously we'll talk about it when mostor comes on but UM. I do thinkEngland have a huge advantage coming in with three tess oner the belt yeah. AsI said before, I think if they were both coming in fresh off locked in, Ithink it might be a different story, but I think it's going to be a big assfor Pakistan in their first testback, but they are a quality team and they'vebeen in quite a good formof puff, not Australian, serious about that's. Youknow it can't really count serious in...

Australia, hatt's not really croket. Isit so I predictions. Obviously this isjust really stabbing in the Dork for most runs wholl be backing in I'l GINto back in wo, maybe Stheon, I'm goingto back in boot. Out of that topfive. Well, top six he's, probably the one that's Jew, and I think he lookedreally positive in that third chest. If it wasn't that first iings he ranhimself out, which you know that's just like an anomaly kind of thing and thenthe second innings he was not out on sixty or whatever. So he looked reallypositive and hopefully, if cruely comes in it three he moves down to foul. Hemight have a easier Goit, so yeah Um, I I'm going to go with stokes whic endschoosing with my heart over my head, but it pits pe Virean Matin in the TA,so it makes sense but yeah it could l Sou, be anyone all five. The batsmanwho werein the top five and that last tested are in really good form, so Ithink Sibwe ends. Burns might be in for a bit more of a challenge. I thinkGabriel. Although he was good in some spells, Ithink for the majority of it he was quite average, like he sprayed it. ALot. Yeamanenbroch doesn't really have the pace to challenge guys like that M Yeah W. Ithink in the same shy and Shan Shafrede, even Mohamma, a bass with his hoopingnut could be a bit of another challenge in Tersof Wi. Ets. Look, it's really just to guess: Hawdto go past the man and foral back inbroady Um. Although he might get rested for aTestin Thow, I think they all might so. Y back andbroad can't really see best,stepping up and taking wickets and then archer and Anderson. Right now, don'tlook like they're going to take more thanbroad, maybe works. I don't know but yowled back and Broidyou once again, Yeh fritful wickets, I'm Goinna, I'mgoing to say assuming they all play the same amount of tests, I'm going to gowith Anderson, tout man, but theres e. He he will probably get a lot less overyet and maybe not even play he moid play one so yeah. I would be surprisedif they sit hem out for the Southhampton leg. Butyo, so es get a big fellew on now.So next time you hear us we'll be joined. Bat. Third member. I we're now joineg by Mossi to chae thePakistan side of this test series D, welcome, hat Howa, good thanksthanks toHavin o night, my pleasure rigt so wat. What we've both done. We bothpicked out like Pakistan eleven so who we think should play and or who hethink's Goin to play. Based off the test. SCOD theethere'sbeen a few practice games yeah, so that kind of helped the decision making aswell but hit should be just TAV with the Aurpingbatsman Um Ove gone wit, Shan Mesud and Upbead Ali Conla. I don't really know who Abali is.I think he's only played three or four test matches this beforn well in thosetest matches like it was a g Sherlanken, Bangla Dashas well, yeah I turned upyeah in might have turned up twice actually in, but it it was in Pakisanso like it wasn't like playing in. U A or like playing oversea N C Colombo,Obongledish somelike. He still has to like prove I guess in England, he'sgood yeah Um, so yeah Scharmesud, I think'sa guarantee. He's been really goodever since he dabi like two or three yearsago, whenever that was and he's opening sports comn up forGROBS, the otherthe opener who stands out is a Marma, Hu um. He's he's beenall right in the practice Aso. I think he's colled a couple of forties, buthis test careras not being great. However, you've Goe memin te bit of aleft, Feld choice. I've gone with the conservative voice, Azaali the captain. I've got indown at number: Three he'sbouted a umber thre in the Packi Games, so I thought he was locked in a numberthree. But how come you think he's going to open the Benling when he wasin Australia? They were here. He was opening with Chamesud th. They openedlook in the first game. Pretty well cause, I think, was a seventy fourpartnership which I'm likeit's pretty good. Like traditionally he's been an openeraswell like Um. I think he just brings a lot ofexperience to totable and e. We need him like. Let's go number one. I'd haveBABARA's arm at number three W. Why would you change Baba fromnumber four? When he's been like one of the worlds, there's Batsin ee- it's just my F, I think it'd be betterat number three and then at Numbero you could have sachafek yeah. I think we're going to have thissimilar. You know batting like bunch of players. Yeah I've got similar, as you said, the two threefour, but I've gotten them down at three four five. So I've got AZAWHO'sTe skeper. I've go him in number three...

...and I've got babaras whois theviasecaptain in a numrfor and I've go o Asa Shfak who's in e number, five who's,your wike tafor. I went. I went with Mohammed Ruswa. I know your home with Softheraz, but Iwonder were both of yes is half souroters keeper have ris as theBatsman. I think he's good enough to be about tonothe him. Well, I think he's galed a century Um one of the practice games.He was ver forentering in the first one and he also scored e fifty not out inthe first innings of that much and he's a hundred Wasno out. So he was good, anAustralia to was he a OI? Was A wifetest yers? Idon't really remember he made ninety two. I think up the UM. I don't know where it was made. Ninetytwo somewhere INISRAA in in the game, probably game o he e's a wellestablished butsman yeah. I've got Mohammed Rslan bating a number six M,but you want to say suffri in there h. Why do you want to see him back in theside? Soow fr mean he's a legend. Micag keeps ofter as Atetan I mean he doeswin? U Games or he's a gunkeeper he's a betterkeeper than anyone. I think right now I doN'tkohowk Cape I'll be honest, but Ithink he brings a lot more wealth and experience yet Camran Acmo he's betterthan Camrun up on all the ACMIRAL brothers and stuff b t he brings in alot lot more wealth of experience and I just generally think he's better,even with the bat he's Bata sorry at that pretty stiff farm of Ni Face Sa thougwher sin was around Ge Serv at that on. So what I wassaying is that Um, yes, like I said Sofras in the World Cup, gave us hopeas well. You see him plagains New Zealand, the one where Baba made a hundred yearbut tat one day, isn't that Yo, always takeinto account thatttwenty performance and stuff outsid it' is currcula. I think, like never l, ifI'm honest, he's, probably the best he's the most experienced keeper rightnow in Pakisan Yeah and you have to on that basis. You have to pick him andit's not just that yetheses previous performances, where he has played woeand, let's not forget like twenty sixteen, when we we h who was thecaptain Ono Thowa Misble, but like twenty pandse like youtwenty ight,twentyeight thwsandaighteen, we had a draw, it was two to the test series.Satiaz was captain in that yeah we had. We had the Baneman Mohammed on me, so everything everyone thought he wascoming back to the test circuit like everyone in the news to like he's, nottaling Bat, he retired from test he's coming back for the two twenties andI'm like what are youworking about it's a bit. mislading, exactly sacle Lok oUNIS to Bowldin coach thing. OWILL take him into account, I'm like by the way you look like you're wearinga world serious cicket, Pakistanto right now, Tuday the exact same color Um yeahanyway Um so yeah. I've got mhummed room, one an number six, probably themost informed bathmen in the team in terms of those practice matches whatabout like as a batsman. Would you not take him as a button Hawas just a Mil?I probably would, but I want to Nabcan in the side a number seven Shidabcan he played in the last testYearis in England tatgasshow. I'm not quite sure why, but he made a Pon Bee.He made a fifty yeah. That's that's the one thing I really like about. I thinkhe's actually a bet of Batrom a sofras Um and is that become of the PSO? No, youshowit it and he just adds you know he's just one of those plays. Who cando a bit of everything he's really al. Really Young is an heasany twenty one,twenty one, twenty something like them and you know pack on you can't trusttheir ages. So U, I think, he's the option. Movingforward Yasishais getting a bit older, now hist, I anler, like thirty three orsomething e h, a o gae O oo. The weight made a hundred Laly taking as manywickets, but I think, he's a Batsman as well yeah.Well, they are Someoteo. I I have Shitavton at number, seven 'm playing I'm kind of picking him as a Batsman,but it's just a bonus that he can bowl as well. I think you reckon hi eMenebola. I D probably do think that, but I thinkhe's I can't lie the rest of the squad's, not that great about Hinyou've got far out alarm and Fahim ashramyname of it. I right paple givehim tat much crop like they say, he's the Pakasoni Benstokes yeah, so I think it a Tam you've alwaysgot to have six batsman and the Caper,...

...but because Mahammad Ruswans, ere,really good Batona, moved him up to six and put it ab down to seven. I don'tthink Youl actually bowle too much with the SC show in there, but Um is also very handy with the ball bigturner of bit. Probably one thing against him is: Heis a leg spiner like yeshe? Shall so it's a big it's a big cooll, taking twospinners into a team, let alone too that spend them all the same way, but Ireally like both of them yeah. So moving on to Yasisha thinking got tohave him Um, just the legends of test cricket at this point. What is he like?The Fastest Cricketinto, a hundred wickets or something somthing yeah? So he he's not had great success.In England he played four tests. There bougt anaverage of forty, but as we know, he bowls a lot of os m. So he's consistentin that he's able, if he's not getting wicked he's able to like, I guess, not,that the Boll of school runs in ad pressure yeah and he can often like you know, let thepaseballs take the wits I' Say I think you're Goin ta have the s show in there.So W who do you have so you've got rismonat six, no, no Haris one at fiveSafras at six Susi Sev, Shadab Aka, and I have your C okay. Oh so, basicallysame team, it's just I've got aet arly opening and that everyone's moved down.I thinkyoe got four paces. I only have three paseballs, so I'vegot Shidan Syearis a bunch of spinners, I'm not saying you need two spinners,but so Shi abs, Kino, an thereis about Om, but it's just a Barnu Ittin Ol aswell Um and then the three pronged pace attack. I think this is a hundredpercent al they'll piqe, I'm not sure if it's what they should pick butshahind shafree, Mohammata Bass in the same sho. I have that as little Ho tethee hundred percent going to pick that why? How O no getting take for thefirst test, Mohammet of Bass, has played two matches: Two tests inEngland since twent and fifteen bold an average of fourteen point. Two andthething is people, give him crap that he's not boiling fast. Like traditionalPanybola, you don he's just consistent with the Bull T, bors the line, and letthen people can't play it. You need that in. I have to admit you do needthat in some places for England certainly Notan exactly like Orimstruggle in Australia because of that ubut England he's shown in the pasthe'll do bits. Oh He's gone insane bowling record s at Bolyamis like twenty one orsomething but he's all he's getting older he's getting older, that's Whar,he grew and then I was looking at Thiik, I'm thinking. Well, we PAXON has thisamazing amount of talent like you, Goten Ahuma, this name who's stillwaiting in the ranks. You've got like these other guys, these other kids,that are like seventeen, a d eighteen ninetyn, which i'me Lok in the next tenyears pack: Sons on m a very od pace attack as even the SN Minshahane like twentytwenty three word: COP prospects. If you look at it, I'm being genine O me,Af Mitnol, pliht yeah, a from that point, probably w exactly in. I thinkHasenali's career's finished yeah and then I'm like this new PISATEX's goingto be Li Byahan Yeh. I think that's. Definitely thethree PROM PAC atect I'll go it's pretty good. To be honest, Yo recordI's better than England's current TEC. No, I think it's it's! It's realyexciting it's Um, but I d 'T. I I think it's pretty hard to put them abovelegends like broad Ansin. What about West indies? There have a better chancein west Indes, I thinkthey D, Il say this to Christian before you came on. Ithink, unfortunately, for Pakistan, there area huge disadvantage, because England have are coming off a three tes serieswhere Pakistan ar coming in fresh, only off a few practice games. So I thinkthat's a huge benefit for England. I think if they were both coming in freshoff lock down. I'd almost have Pakistan as favorites, but because England have had a three testseries. I think they've got to be the favorites going into it, but I thinkPakistan will give them a better test than Westinnees O. for short, I thinkwestirnnews bowling attack was good on paper, but, although gabrew and hold intook a few fifes and stuff like that, I o't think they bowld that well ormonest. You know my my favorite cricker and that tame was Rokine Corn Bill, the CACI caut whos legend rogs, Ye h,man, ijist, Os Yo, yeah, yeah, well, Dayar Weher, he CBEplaying but m t mony can't field, but anyway, Um analso. This wes. This Pakistan team byFA has a Bett spin attack, which I thinks really important, especially inManchester. It was spening. Quite a lot. Roston chase was getting a lot of turn,so I think Yasi Shan Shidabkan could could be dangerous in that first testyeah, I reard a Laka Hain, mahammed a Baom the same, and I think England's ontop order is quite fragile, yet voth,...

...the openess since EEI they weren'ttested in Eur First Peridto Ey a lot of the times they got starts, but I thinkthat's going to be a big thing. I think that's going to be the king of theseries. Actually, I think if Pakistan can get them out early M, I thinkEngland's going to be in a bit of trouble, because, although that middlewaters pretty good um jer shown over his career when he comes out early inthe innings, he struggles and pupen stoks, obviously they're great cricktes,but they probably crickets wol prefer to come in a little T. Lig ot yeYetwhen ththe school is already like two hundred plus, because even theyknow even they know they can't do it every time. Yeah that'll be time juststuff up, really bad yeah and then Batlashin he's pretty bad um. I thinkSir Haolkan is very stiff. I don't think he's going to miss out he's beenreally good in England. He's taken two fir so in the last in twenty sixteenand he played two matches and I to far M in England bowling average to twentyfive and in the practice games he took two FIVESO. What is s hes EQAL INSEE ofing, but I don't think he can get picked over any of those Tory o. YouKnow Wha Haria, there's also twenty ment wthat's up for arage. I lookingthere's no way Hebut if he still has the pace. Apparently he stoold theolder Ohein playhe, even playing one of the practice games and then the otherone he was folloing like tid change. I didn't think I I think ws just there to maaging provids experience a ship yeahholding it but yeah. I think SA halcanstatistically probably should be picked. Just 'cause he's the inform man ut. Idon't think it can leave Shahine abast Ol in the same air. So that was mythink. I'm like you can't drop a bass in. U K Y? U You would not drop himhe's just TATF good in the UC and then I'm like Shahin is also very successfulin the UK, the only guy o someone. I think it would be in yeaan a scene pretty much, but I'm like the same, showed in Australia. Thathe's got pace. The way he was goling o was like that in the U K hat, it wassomething to watch. I guess yeah, I think it'll be a big testment. The sameUm t ever really bold conditions in the Testteam isplaying, the subcontinent.In Australia, so it's a completely new game for him armselsee how he goes.Obviously he's not the biggest swinger of the ball he's main expornent is justpace all pase, but he c he could really challenge that top woder of England, but yeah. Unfortunately, for sale, HALCarn, I think he's going to be limited to running out the drinks which is quite stiff. Given these takentwo fifes and he I was looking at who he got out. They went, he wasn'tcleaning up the TA, he was getting bomber out. He was getting his Za allthe Yeaou. He was Goin, Tak Yo go to reckond. Do you think Baba was tryingin that practice game or, as I was trying, obviously they'reprobably not fightingfor thetr wicked, but I'm sure they weren't, like just hacking like, Ithink they would have been trie. You ever t e first time. I first time I heard of Sihel Con Twentyfifteen work up indiaotpakes and I was up ten game who hels that he'sbollowing and I he go ro Shay and I'm like o Damn wher in this and then likethe next weked fell at two hundred. So, like ohey he's pretty faster, I think he'snottathe's, he bols one. Thirty five one for you know Pakisan is der Yeah. I think now a hundred percentpick the same show H, Oif Thi, Wanto Hois. I Wan scared about Spendin, Otheyl Picna, see and like I know you should fogus on winning right now, butI do think the fact that sal can thirty five about to tern thirty. Six ESAIFmakes it like. Even if you got picked thishwould be one of Hese lost, seriess, canival MISAR. At the point I m an hehas to be realistic as well like from his point of V. I don't even knowwhy they picked them in the first place like if he's not going to play and likehe's, not young talent, Paksons. What this new initiative that we're going topomite young Telle, yet we've got Wahabrias and like someone like him,the thirty five ear old fosimals, which we know, L Ke, we're not Bangladeshright. We don't like we dont do that. Her we've got guys APPO yeah, we don'tPike Mothure of MTASA in like Bal on twenties and thin. That's not that's!Not Our status like that's, not something we do. We have got on artywith. He took two five. He doesn't lat O it doesn't. I respect that Hehas, a PS, l contract who mate money off the place, Ta Twenty hoplayed domestic, buthe shouldn't be in the INR International Circui who from Australiais a thirty five year old that plays for Australia, like Mit Johnson was tilthirty, three thirty four and he was bowling like Super Farse, be, I have tosay a little disappointed you I'd. Rather, you have like. Ah they sent back under Ninteen.Captain Erhaln is te Othe Wick. You keep up Towo that okay, they say they say he's going tobe the next Ocoli or Rod charmer as well. He's a gun tat but Myes. They sethim back from HHAMMEDAMIO and like people in Theire, criticizing that youarmy has being brought 'causethere ere a l. A lot of people are saying amusebeing favoritized by like PCB ND. I...

...cime do believe that 'cause, you knowJinacon you're, oginacon Yei, remember the name. Why is that the Fat Goy OtaAa His dad ons, the Ta Maynkan Woncons Mon t his son's actually pretty good,like the fetty, the score in onves? Well, it's t twenty, so yeah ostone comGenakon, is like a bola he's. I think twentyeight he's twenty eight, but hehe's a lot F. unlike he has a lot more experience. Inthe K, 'cause he's playedcounty there and all that stuff, but let yeah w whet. You talk about Wathaband stuff like why haw on Po play t twenties, Om Onis, but Holcon is justyour main test. Mallo and like he shouldn't be personally think he shouldn't be there yeah all right. It's like I want to getsome predictions from you. You agree this Passi Yeah. What do youthink of the coaching stuff? Well, I know you send them to me, likeI can't say I like, I don't know if they Couldi, I think, doesn't manhurt. I think it's going tobe a pretty elate team, like in terms of cutcoaching stuff yeah, like who's coaching, Englandright now, hen the one there is like Chrisived, O, whatever it ISS. Everyoneknows like Misba was there in twenty six N and one Misebi UNIS Wakaude thatMatian ont Nori Fegrad coaches. It's like someone cal be really good atmaths, but they might not be able to take notwhat's the day. Tonag today istheong. Twenty ninth of Julin, I reckan write in the next three tofour years, we'll become the number one test team with thiswe Bin, the numberone Tesday for like a monk, but I reckon with this coaching stuff if itremains together and they put all their eagoes aside and they just focuse todedicating to pason cricket, I reckon we can become number one in test or look forward to it. I think you'resitting in what sick, trit Nthchampionmenwfi, what good I as Fei.Sorry, it's a big series for them. I think they ive, you win, you might beable to leap, Frog, England, but I think you'd have to Mabin all three Eh,which Mi be right, so some predictions Moos. What's your serious prediction,I'm going where's the first Hesse Manchestend, the next two inSouthhampton, well y you're, also going to take into coun that you know crowdsare going to be allowed in back in these ames Ye. Now Na now I was reading it L, Stthey're, saying they were going to open it. Ta Five Hundred Yea, it's going tobe a limited amount of crowd, is going to be allowed in 'cause a Social DistinEhwhich. If yolke at Manchester, it'sattritionally, Pakisine city, H Y ont, do the crowd thing. First, like youcan't expect a litt of pacasanise to come, and I I think that will add a lot ofpressure. I mean U K is the second home of Facasanis Hou. Ask anyone, and if I'm, if I'm honest, I do thinkwe'll win the Manchester test wh. What about the whole series WHAWATS S Y W? It wouldn't be Pakistan. If we didn't lose one game, I can lose t a second game. No, I werewinning the second game like they'll, just be parting, all night and Hlik nooffence. I know T. I know these people, the the second test, will just loselike really badly and then until the media inpact, SOM stots, giving usshitthen win the Thirtes Y, I'm predicting two neel to England.I think one of them will be Adral, wellbsome rain. No, I purely think it'sjust because England are coming off a three test series. I think it's aReallyba big advantage. I feel really bad for Pakistan I's I'nfair but UM. This is what I I were both coming in off, lock down.I'd almost go Pakistan to one, but I think that advantage of Thein May Nan O,but you never know you know you never know you never unercent like we. Ithought Western news we're going to get s kit smashed and they won the firsttest to almost almost retain the truth, but s oes the only on 'causestuartbroad, wasn't playing in INA way. I was like Jimmy Anderson wasn't as good aswitout. If his wodsteward broad they're a formidable pace attack, they are umin terms of top run score. whoare you going with you going with your belovedAbaba Yeah. I was reading at you if Babis Swos, three hundred runs in theseries, he'll go to numer number three in the world: intest rinking, don't care about C C rankings. This ardback t this o Sis that why the odio ranking is all Asian like Rodowo, Jason,holer ing is like Shan Down this number three intests he's good emon o. He he'snot better than Nover he's, not better than Baba t that's a fair cold. I wasMo os. He who is most ro odswith Baba, Akaan,Toron, Scor whoare you going with Um Asa, Rali and babrazone just fasay yone ma babarazone...

...um, it's a tough one! Yeah I'M GOING TO GOAZALI! I think mad, two e two hundred he made against Astralia at the mcj. Oh,never forget that. I think he um England really suits someone whoplays a bull late with a really like solid technique. Babrazam he's like topfive bathroom in the world, but I think ye might get caught out a few timeslike going for his shots, but I'm surelike other things H, therthingwrong in Babaras, Andyo see patient, not everyone neevs to go for fol and Is Australia. I think he might have some me shoes against like abroad with aswinging ball, but that's why I'm backing in Azali. But yet talent ofBatsmanso wouldn't surprise me if he does well BTWSOM SOFTAR S, making adeble incred, not playingthere. Why do isofper ashave an a before the ar like? I actually only learned on n the PCLIN,the name Yeah thout. We could take H, I'm going to go change Hfrady, justbecause I think he'll bollow, like the ost Arand I'm not yeah, I'm just Gong. I didn't really have a rais. I think he'sthe best ball O in a bonus sane that much ea still a kid and something he'sstil. Developing a BAS will probably ball, probably maybe well a lot of overs but like his Mangelby rekons in te team's going to be try to getthe e school runs and then theother part of the attack just attacked. The wickeds Anchan will be bawling withthe new ball, so I think he will get a few wickets every innings early on. Sodefinitely back. Packison catches, the catches, man, I hope they don't dropany catches fielding actually is a big thing. No IV talked about it at all andY WES UM. They they feeld it all right. But once again, that's always the issue.When you know the Englands South Africans iustraelias play teams likeWestern News, Pakistan, the fielding's- usually a big issue for Pakistan and stuff, but hopefullythey lift, hopefully that Elate, coaching staff May Ge go to work andthon in the field. They're getting paid a lot of money, so I'm I'm hoping I I'mexpecting results a day one. It's not like Mor it's going to take us time. Iwant results O Day, one they've been there for a month and like that's thebest preparation you can have, if you ain there for a month and you get usedto the conditions and stuff yeah, it's not fair Enoughi. So to we cu, take her.Who are you backing in SA, show right, yeah, he'll, probably Bo the most Ovityeah, so I'm think he was. He was he's been traditionally in the UK. He's beenreally good at times like. I know, you're saying that in the past, like Ithink, lost series you didn't play that well, but I'm thinking Abac from thetwent twenty sixteen series where he got an ate far, I'm pretty sure it tookto autes. So, although hes average Wasnin Gray, he actually took a lot ofwickets yeah L, FAS yhat. He always takes a lot N you're lry. He when he was in Australia. I was likehe might be good, but like he was even surprisingl ouside. This was seshaw whodid his homework in terms of getting wicked inastratia as well, like Yo gotSmith out like really early on an O, I'm like if he does his wo, who does hishomework and he does like everything. Well, he might have a chance at likeperforming a lot better than a lot of people are getting in yeah anyway.That's that for that section, Um, thanks for coming on mmar loved hearingyour insidts about your beloved Pakistan and I'm sure I'll get you on at somepoint to maybe review the test series hope. So it's got that on a you'relooking forward to it, though, I think it's going to be a more competitiveseries than the Westernies. What about authority? What about the t twentiesafterwards, O Mansho? What are you at the rots called IPL liverty twenty WoadCup, the conspiracy Gman, do thing quite in yeah, um owhenever it's baying pliet in e, a yeah, it's a fat point, but o there's,probably more money in it to yeah. Nobi have some good news for you: NIT PS, L, yeah yeah. They were goingto host the twenty m twenty World Cup in the time at the PR L when the PRSLhappens, and then the PS l, like the PCB Sudan hoving egot. I so see thatthat's when we have our league, so I'm pretty sure for the next three yearsnow, there's no international cricket. That's going to be played from FebitalMarch when the PSR was playing, so I'm hoping Steve Smith and David Warne andall these buzz get picked. There's no international cricket and there's nolike word cop by games happening in that February march yeah, so they justfor some of them. It might just be a bit of a issue with like safety, but Icomt Onnigt, I mean W, like they've, only allowed cricket to be played thereinternationally. In the last, like twelve N, I went to Kaafistain to watchthe game might Ihad a great time Ike. I didn't sit with the public and stufflike I had a great time. It's not bad...

...like it's, not it's! Not that that'snot the reason but, like I'm sure, it'd be in the backof their minds like the whole slanc thing, but o Sha link o me Mshalankacame back and played and beat us in to tea twenty somehow, anyway Um. So thanks, Bere, coming onreally looking forward to the test, seres just quickly who the Co do youknow who the Pakistan compentators? Would it be rammes Raja, I don't thinkrames Rogers Ilev SOM te Apron, an MIONCON, no, no NRONCON. He has to fixthe country mate. I meahe's te O A or I think smakron will probably do it. Sco.Yes, that' Onot, so I'Pchi thinkwas he makrom Nasea Hussein and like what'shis name m. what's that Guy Thin Al Ethey, all love it when Pakisan Coma,they wane Ol the with the alate Um commentary, Io Lov, I omaing. Whenthere's something about it. I ealllo that ser, it's IT'S LIKEIT's! It's likeIndia, an Estralia yeah, it's a teelling about it. Yes, so thanks for coming on Mao sorry about my brother, I' before isgood entertagood Inte sa Mas o Woan to pot three o on the Boll pocastExamuel Gess at night ki on Kon ter is no ARJ y H. I'm using that sostifia we're joined again by poach, we're here to talk about the Englandisland. One day series quit three three nacseries only goes for a week. Firstone is Thursday night and then it finishes. I think, on Tuesday, so justa bit of Bangbang action, and this is also the commencement ofthe I don't know. If you've heard about this, but the one day superleague, it is a test championship, Konoth,pretty much the exact same thing Cinli. I don't know the ENS and outof it, butI know it's being used as a qualification tool for the tousnd andtwenty three well cup Um. Each team gets full one day series for a wayseries fall home one day, serious forway one day, series and Um so yeahvery similar to the test championship and it all kind of adds up just to giveO di series a bit more meaning until the Wall Cup, so that'll be interesting.A new rule, they're bringing in now every bull, is going to be checkedby the T. v Umpire for noble the on the on the ground.Umpires don't have to look at it. So that's something that's going to bechanged and it's going to be. I don't know if they're using it in all games acricket or just this superleague, but that's something that's definitelyhappening in the Englan island series. Mnow in terms of our teens with bothpicked a team woll. You Know Island, it's a, I think, Baotins only ave asqualt of fourteen. So it's not really picking a team. Is it's justeliminating a few blikes from selection? Um? It's it's a tough one with the oldEngland scol. Do you think it's they're still going to be dominant, even thoughthey are missing their test? Plays Yeah well, Askingamai joke before about should bea tightly contested series, but I can't really sae Ireland. Whinhin came here even thoughthe sqo England scuods a bit depleted, but I still have. They still have afair few of their stars, so they should roll through the arsod theyre noftythings etinelitoo deep for island to maybe sneak away with a windby likeskitling, then like they didn't test match first ening the other last year,but im yeah. I can't really see England not winning all three, maybe a couple of them fairlysingly aswell. So we'll start with the England side, then we'll move into the ISL andteam. So, as I just said before, it is a fourteen man scole. I think not sure.If that's the exact number Um I've picked a squall that I think nopick andpicked a squal tat. I think they should pick so opening up whohave. You got no brainer Roin Barto, probably themost exciting opening parin world crea at the momen. In the one day,international format they come out firing and yeah they're, just absolutebeasts of the sport. It has to be said. Phil Salt scored a hundred notour inthe practice game, but he's on Iven in the squad, so kindao shows how deepthis England one day whole system is really.I think they probably got thirty or forty players who would be good enough to play one day,intornational cricket, so ye no brain in the bast over the glongs YoshmarkYeh. I agree. There's one other player in this squad who can keep but he'smissnarrowly for me, say: Broanbesto...

...number: Three: it's normally Jogrut,but I've Gone James Vince. I don't think they ill tinker too much with the order. I thinkthey would just try and find straight swaps for the guys who are missing inthat test. HEAM, so yei've Gone Vinci in a number three just to do the JoRood Roll. I think Ho scores. Seventy knot out or something or maybe out inthat final practice abouch the other day Um against Ireland, Um, so yeahthere's not really many options to bout in the top water. To be honest, in myopinion, but yeah I've got him another three or ha yep jam spe for me as well.HEHWOULD defenitely get the getting a Gi Day. Also known is Timo Schwishek insome circles good to say no one understands I'm talking about exe, butnow this is tennis PLA who looks like in Cor team, Shmarshe and then numberfor. Obviously it's an Morgan skipper of the team. I have to say, though, I'mnot saying Hi's going to be dropped or anything, but statistically he'sactually not even been in that good of form. I know he often has to play a bitof a selfless innings like Jos, Balla does in the test team, but he hasn'tscored of fifty and eight innings and his last fifty was against Afghanistan.So you know doesn't count athat Um, so I think he's someone who will be reallylooking at this series. A chance of trying scoresome runs not saying his position's in threat.Obviously it's the werld cut winning captain, but I think he does need tostart justifying that position. He holds in the Tament Numbe for and iscaptain with a few good innings, which is obviously capable of against his oldteam. Il Um o you've got oen at fourl. I actually don't I've go ohspice, I'veot an am. I downokay J drove denly t four. For me. I noticed he was in theEsquab, so I think we're definitely picking YeahI've Gon at Fiv Joon, Jo Denleyhe, played in that Sat African series atnumber five Olbe it. It's probably fair enough for him to Bhat above Morgan'cause. He does Sam more soted to the top woter, but he actually did quite agood job. In Sat Africa. Two fifties, I think I think I's cort, an Aity in asixty um coming in at five. So I think hewill be picked espite, not havingplayed any of the practice games 'cause. He was in the test bubble, but now he's down in Southhampton, so Ithink you'll play on hundred rcent shorthogh ne number six. Who are youoing with my my new man who ere allowed to Mo taBanton Yeah, Iveoma Ben in it six as well? Um was, I was just saying, I'vepretty much looked at the core of that so African series and, if just you know, checked that they're in good form, butyet bent was in at six in that s African series. I think he bouted a bit higher in someof the practice games. I know you opened one and I think about it in fourand one but um yeah back down to six for the big feller. I think in this one I do have written down here. Let me mhis position is kind of not guaranteed, if he's. If he he's someone who, if hemisses out n the first two gains m could be could be just like rotated ordropped, and the guy who had probably Comin for him would be like a sandbillings. So he's probably one who needs some runs to consolidate his spotin side, especially given the fact that, in that Soth African series and thisserious stokes hasn't been playing Woll in the last one day. F, that'shoffconceros anyway, and starks, probably well he's not batting as six,but you know could be ben could have to come out for him.Then number seven who re you'R olling with Monali yeah. I noticed tha he's theviceCaptain Oh yeah of the Scord, but I'd pick him anyway. I mean he's obviouslys test, pating isn't great,but he in there like in the domestic tweant and twenty an one day comps. Helike opens for his county and makes tons so he's still abase with the BAand Al. We see a good bawler in Mondays yeah. I can't lie. He is a very good Batsom, but he's notin the best toform similar to Morgan he's like struggled a bit with it, butobviously he's coming in so low. His averages often affected by hi justhaving to swing the BA. I do think they'll pick him at seven. I'dpersonally pick Lam Dawson, I'm especially well. Southhandand didn'treally turn that much in the first test, but m yeah I'd personally go th LamDalson, but I do think now big Mowin Ali, very, very close o between them.For that you know kind of B, Batting Bowling M. that's spinning all round aoption in a number seven, but yeah. I definitely see why Moyali would getpicked, but I think Lim Daleson will be...

...there or thereabouts, especially downthe road. In terms of that position could be another one. Then you tookfourth, I have an te yeah tracticl ID yeah. I think I think Mary took threefar in moing. That is in the first practice game. Then hetook, none in thesecond and he actually sat out that England lion's game gainst island,which was interesting and Dorson, did play, but I'm sure that's not reallyanything. To look too far into they're. Moving into number eight I'veactually got someone who was a bit of a surprise addition to the squad. Ithought David Willian Um. I just think no much logic really to it. Thepasteball is a Willy Carrn mymood and race toply, and I've gone with DavidWillie in both my predicted team and my statistically selected side. So whatabout you? He is in my tame, but of I would backto Tom Caren above Y, a I've got ton car, an Aon so y, ah the same sime and t n and then y have you got rash.Adeal O Peopl, Numbe Teni was tossing up andI don't think I don't want mamood and Topley and Willie all in that site, soI' definitely pick another spinner wether Anat Dorsin alregaded yeah Ilike to spinners. Personally, I think I don't know whay you stand on this, butI think nowadays Odias is kind of turned into like. I know I think theWorld Cup winning S. I think the final England only quate one SPINEP, but I'ddefinitely prefer one day Tam with two spiners personally. Do you agree with that? One yeahi thinkand especially for England oer the last year or two W we've been in our besswhen we've played moin and Rachid most of the time, although they're probably getting past their peaks. Now, they'renot as good as they used to be, but I'd still play both yeah. That's also oneof the big Um prirs that Alli has is Tha Dolson, I'm ninety nive Centureis alegs fial O my conciden. I S O etin that Dey, Idon't know for a fact, but I'm pretty sure in the P sl I remember MullinLakespin, but I'm not a hund and central and mowing and Rochetd otherboys com on. I guess it's a factor it's whymitual marshal always gets picked up and then number eleven. I reckonthey'll pick secebma mood, but I want them to pick race. toply toply is aleft arm like willy. So it's pretty rare to see two left arms t an only onrihe on pasteball, but I'd rather than pick toply. I think in the Games. Heasplayed he's, looked pretty good um but yeah. I think the grmy mood who's onlyplayed wile match actually, but he was in that lost Tame in South Africa. Whatdo you think yeah? I agree. I've go I've written down race, toply, but there's a good chance. They do play memood, although I don't know, there's not really much reason to writeMymoodyeh Baay, pretty similar yeah I've. I've gone toply personally, yeahthat I can't lie no many in that pasfalls to poles in the practice games.So there wasn't really much to go off to be honest and, like memortoplyhaven't, played much and willy hasn't played for like a year so um it waskind of weird. I was surprise the pasteballing attack. I is Chris Jordan,Injun Yeah! I don't know I S in it. U Be Yeah, you would have thought so um now, that's it for the English thoughtUm. In terms of that England team. Who, who are you looking is like thedangermen? Obviously, as you are mentioning it's probably the openingpar, isn't it with Butler out an stakes out? It probably puts more focused on thatopening, Pabroy and Besif in want any chance of winning any game. They'vepretty much got to get a wicken, the first five overs otherwise they'regoing to be staring down the barrel of like Numpa Eighty Offte, ten overs andgoing to be on the backfoot very, very quickly: Yeah Um Ye, definitely Roimbesto aethe,two dangermen Roy Roy tends to be inconsistent at times like you'll everget out in the first over e'll make a hundred off sixty, but if hi gets going,there's no stoppng Y, a best o man, a hundred and thirty nine hour. I thinkin one of the practice games off like eighty five Rockstha's, I think youtook memoord to town. He went for like nine and over or something yeah Johnnya seming. Silly like that. If I was to pick in like a toprun scorer, I'dprobably go johnny, just 'cause Roy can get out for not many yeah yeah we'l we'll make that pick now I'llgo I'll grade Johnni as well hundred Cenn Gr. I think he's more consistent.

I'd like to see I'd like to see it besomeone like Morgan though, but I can't really. I don't think you will yeahjust 'cause the nature of one day cricket like the opener has more chanceto go big, a three test series if you're scoring a hundred um you'vepretty much locked in top squor M so now moving into the island teem onceagain, they've got fourteen players in squad, so not too much to whidtle downto. Obviously I can't lie. I don't know toomuch about these players but M in terms of the opening batsman. I think it OyPol stelling and I think it's Garret Dilani not hosensuris. First Name, UPor Stalings the vice captain of the team, he's kind of been ever present inthat opening batting part ofshit he's one of Themr Betdabostonas wellaverages forty three in the last two years, Um, including a hundred so he'spretty handy with he stick delae. What's H, looking at he's only playedtoo mach in the last two years hasn't looked great, but there's not reallyany other options. If I'm oest Um, then another three is o skippe AndrewBaw, Boney he's actually not abad either. I thinkhe yeah he average is forty five in the last two years, so Albe thes startsthey're, probably playing a lot of games against. She Afghanistans you, Idon't know who else but outames that aren't really the top Te, but stillpretty impressive, so yeah I've got Balburny a number of three. A numberfour is where I differ from what I think they'll pick to what I think theyshould pick. I think they'll pick William Porterfield, but I want them to pick Harry teptajust for no Raisin H, William Porterfield, he's kind of oneof those Jodenley merchants who loves a good thirty M and he's like thirty,four somming, where Harry Tecta. I think it's like twenty one or somethingand he's squartof sixty in one of them practice matches. So I'd like to seehim given a cracker over a Porterfield, but I think the former captain willstay in that number four slot. By the way, do you have the same top fall aswhat I've said? H Yeah, I think Um Po Portefield's being a stalwart yeaTamn, so long so they'll probably pick him and yea Um.Definitely steling Belberny and then Delani don't know much about him, but not sure. If there's, as you said in noe Ope, Er yeah, they I knowm, don't know his first name.There's a Gua with the lost nd, mccullum hereasbouting, sometimes buthe's not in the squad so think Delanan has to be. The number find is probablythe most dangerous player in the team. In my opinion, Big Kavin o'briant big Kj. He scoled a hundred in one of the Walmut Games, Um Heis, pretty much acetenteen number. Five he's only average twenty four M in the last twoyears, but he likes about FA. So I'm sure he goes out early, a lot Um andbouning down at number five. You can often as ir saying with who was I saying that Wis Mary Nali, you can often be in asituation where you have to just tea off yea number: Six I've gone with a keeperTucka. Let's have look at his first name: Woken Tucka, Pretty Good IrishName Tho. Actually it's not even the fair things are the lost NAS cound,probably no English, but yeah talkothe CAPI, don't know! If there's anotherkeeper in the squad, if I'm honest, I think Gary Wilson has kept, but he isnot in the squad and Lileo'Brian used to be the keeper and he's not squooteither. So I think that's who it has to be Um. Just shout out. If you disagreewith me, Menum Yeah, I noticed in the last practice game that pushed Ibronand Tuck a dam one spot to fit in Techin,Porterfield yeah, so yeah, whether I o that I originally had that. But I don'tknow who the fifth Boller is, I'm pretty sure in that Mutch they onlybold four people. So I I originally had that ND. Then Iwas lie Qutwh'cause. I I don't actually know if any of the top six bowls UmButyeah I'll, do some research. Well, we talk about the bowls, so they haveno brimbl. Let me Ow pullderling bowls, but he'staken three wickets and twenty matches. So I assume that's not too much of aBalland Geek for him. I think o Brian, an Hav o Briana, has taken two wicketsin twenty matches. So maybe they combine for ten overs but yeah. I don'tknow I guess: Maybe they want some bouting against this impressiveEnglands side but yeah. It's a bit strange. It's a bit of a strange,settle and n the bowl. Isso I've gone withthat top six but, as you said, they...

...could definitely pick portefield andTapta at four and five Um. So the Bulls once again similar toangaleness just not really many options, I think sing and mcbrian, and the twospinners so they've played m most games in thelast two years Um. So I think they'll be picked at seven and eight and thenthe paseballing attack Um you've got four options, but I'm going withMcCarthy ranking and then Chashyong at the bottom: crade young, sorry, not chason, andthen Jos little missis out. So That's who I've gone with, as I was sayingbefore, I'm not claiming to be some Irish croocket xpert. I don't know toomuch about them. Um. Looking at the statistics, their best bollrs seem tobe board. Rankin um, Jezis S, Slim Picking Sa boy, Annie, mcbrian and SemiSing seem to be K, but yeah. It doesn't look to be anything special boy,DRANKIN's. The only guy and the team rolling with more than a wicked permatch in the last two years, O that's a bit of a worry for them in terms of thestiff we kindo talked about Atbelberny and Sderling, probably the mostconsistent, but I think Kavin O'Brien has the most ability to take a gameaway from the this impressive England team m. In terms of predictions, bigfellow M, we touched on England's badding, we think Bersto willbe the to run scorer who whobacking in for the wickets for the English TadCarlie. This is a absolutey guessing game. Yeah F am Tom Caren Ya, back inTom Carin for some junk time. Last ten over Poles they'll get him over the lawn to me, Umand in the ISLANTINE W Jesus is random. Isn't it I'm going to sta clear ofpolsailing just 'cause? I think opening Badtinggig can be quite hit en miss andin the three tests a three game series against it. England it'll be impressive.If he can hit once Um Si, I'm going Ta go Obrian, just because he's kind ofprotected down in that number five position might be a few times wherethere's a collapse and he can kind of come in with some time. But Bal burny would also be a goodcandidate who you gone with yeah. I'm I'm going to go with big belbarony bigBo lern Bo o t trnin. He he looks like a. He looks like a bit of a lad and heactually looked pretty dacent in the in that T. standalone test match iiinstuff in awful EAH, so I'll back him in carts, Nai and cat SI im bacing thatoff much though, but back in year, and then the bowling. This is ses, Boyi'mjust going to go board ranking but like as we would do with the western news.That's the most simple option: ecause everyone knows who board ranken is Um,I'm going to go board, ranking H, just based off those wiket stats that I readout before. However, in saying that, I think it will happen to eclomomy rate.At fourteen point, two M I th NK royand best on might do some dirty things tohim. butnmaybe he's really tall. So maybe he's bounce will you know soutthe Mau, but yeah I'll go big Boydo. What aboutyou yeah? I think I think they'll all get absolutely torn apart, but yeah. Ithink they'll be lucky how many wickeds all be predicting for the island teamin three manches can away like you to get double figures. I'm going five yeahone, none one to four hundred and thirty. Two and it ao be said, though it is theirfirst official games back from lockdown, so the English bloks Migt beby rusty,I'm going to go, I'm going to go pog for my Irish weektaker and O semi sing.Let me see everything one of things yeah, maybe if it was at a differentground I'l consider he spin up. U, I guess Peni O Ais Dangerous. In one dayI 'cause everyone's trying to smack Im. She speaks tines that SA yeah, it might be, it might be attempt itwon't, be an attempt just be going into the into Rosea. I Cri. This arroganceis making me Hert, O the OSL and Snake Inein he um,but yeah. So that's it for this pod cast it's been quite long. I think wecould be looking in an hour and fifteen once we add all three parts of ittogether, butyere looking forward to it, lookingforward to both series actually probably more the test series. I can'tlie: I'm not that fast about this one day series, but I know you a E,although you won't admit it you're a bigger one day fan than you are a testfan, but you're too proud and traditional to admit that that's thecase, but that's alihas right, I will say tha the fact that England, at themoment there one day, tame, is easily the best tame and most entertainingteam. I do love watching them in one day is,but I'm still a test match test match. Man,though you like to disagree with that,...

...then just I don't know, I think theperson the putting- and I think you do get ever Ondais a little bit just aittle bit more, but that's again, that's okay! We live and we learnenothing, no there's nothing to be ashame, O retl bit of one dicreetmen,there's something to be ashamed about. You don't have to try and be this suxsuperior cricket, traditionaist Um B, t wha, Lorock Yorw, currently trying tobe right. I follow some seriously bad sports mate.I can't talk Shit Um anyway, so that's it for this porty been a lot ofpredictions, so I'm sure we'll get absolutely non os them correct, asalways, but really enjoyed that Westerne series really looking forwardto the Pakistan series semi looking forward to the island series, and yetthanks for joining me, pilch big thanks, even though he's not on any more butbig thanks to most for joining me thanks for his little brother formaking a Cama in the background of his video and getting fended in the face and yeah just Chen him for the next fewepisodes plenty of content coming out so Chespild, don't you cook a catic jet to trick up.
