ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Hamish is joined by new guest Finn Broadbent and returning guest Jack Broadbent to discuss the recent PGA Championship. He is also joined by Pilch to discuss the England Cricket series' against Pakistan and Ireland.

Welcome back to the ONUBORNPOKCASTTIS's episode, Forty Eight of the show today, weare joined by Wele,broader Youhave, been on t e for Jack you're, both broutes. I can't reallysay that, can I Jackanfen Jack you've been on before, but fin we'll pump youup mate. First, first appearance: How are you feeling mat are ou a bitnervous oo, Litl, nervous yeah I like to do that. It makes you feelprestigious, but so we're here with a few Gulf expertsto chat about the recently completed twosand and twenty PJ championship. Thefirst major of the is allright T at. Do they sneak any in before Lok donthertmajor yeah? I think the? U S opens in a month an the masters en at the end ofthe year, so we all got around it this weekend.Didn't we a few a few of a few of the other boys in our three we were kind of.Can I actually worked well for ASF the time zone, um 'cause, it's just! Whenyou wake up itwas perfect, you could cut to the back nine pretty much ofeveryone's itruns day, and this morning we witnessed Colin Urmorcow. It wasHeather Ri when Hes First Major at the AG twenty three joining Roarie MaccroyTiger Woods and Jack Nicholas in that well prestigious little group there towin a major at such a young age um and he looks like the real deal fin. Whatdid you make of his well four days? I honestly thought it was a very matureperformance. I'd say: m. You struggled early in the first couple rounds, butthenm had a really good weekend and showed anon Sunday on t e back nine,where all the money's made well, I think, to kind like almost liketwo and a half million Australian dollars, or something like that. PrettyHan Twe troful in the God right back her Beni Second Major Yeah it soundrealJack Jack did Yo. Do you think he's going to be as good as those three thatwe just mentioned? or IT'S A big call? I I don't know if I'm allowed to dothis, but I was going to ask a question out to you too Um ye. Is it going to be one of thoseanother one? Those golfers comes and goes sort of winds, a majoror to andgets lucky or to is hay the real deal. I mean that heady question. I think hecould be o I waneta or yourthing I reckon is the real deal. Th is one more than his miscuts. So well I love from him today, especiallyI watched like I go of really early and watched the whole lastron this morning,but um I just loved the bulzy. He was to be honest on the back night likeit's sixteen, or that was the major shop that on he met he drove a par forand then Made Eagle and like no one was getting it chlist really on that holehad to fight it around these trees, doudler rot and he he just took it,took it on. I thought he'd line up and he an unbeliemable shot, and thatproves a different. So I think he's got a calm head on his shoulders, but he'snot afraid to go for it in the big moment say you know, he's going to beone to watch for sure I loved him yeah. Was it the second shot on theeighteenth where he was on the fairway? He could ease that. We were talkingabout this. He couldhave. I think it was eighteen yeah. He could a therewherhe's like co to the fat side of the Fairway and the hole was in like atricky location. He just went straight Fort Um, so he woled it left throughthe grain nig but yeah and he was Lik.

U Itav Ben lucked O that shot, but youknow fortune favors. The brave is what they say so erserved it was pretty cool though Ikin, I don't watch too much golf myself, but it was pretty interesting hearing,especially his conversations with his CADDI. They seem tin like a very goodrelationship. It wasn't like the play dominating the choices they sent to himworking wells and Jor, and that was pretty interesting to yea 'cause. I'venever really heard that dynam dynamic before, but not enough for calling. Ithink we've got around and IFND YOU ere saying: You've got some things,you'd want to say about him. Do you ago emailed or something from your GulfClub Um? Yes, O won wresk page to event in Julythwsand and Nineteein, the Barricude Championship and Um is made twenty Ima.Twenty two consecutive cuts to start his professional career, which Ithought a really awesome effort and a record only exceeded by tiger woods,with Twen five n and now he's moved up to the top five in the official. WellGolf rankings O Handenoug RH yeah. I I hadn't heard ofhim till he had his playoff whole m on the final day of one of the tournamentsagainst J t watchd that one thos good work, they charity open, yeah, lock,lock my older brother, who is quite into the Gulf nowadays. He was tellingme about him and sa Hew's pretty good. So I was Kino had one eye on him orwaened, and it's a pretty man all her little fella,really its a matt he's only what like five foot nine or something like that,you r Ndand, like seventy something kilo that smacks it pretty Cros, one ofthe best things Rou of oroom. I reckon it was a fider's course IKO, a l, that's a Bi t technical forme. Then repala got him around it. Wasn't myhostay! Whenever you missed the fairway like the rough was really long, so you had to be striht off the TA,otherwise you're in trouble, but yeah in terms of that's enough for COL, wego o random in terms of people who impressed Youil, surprise you Jack, whowas anyone who who may not have on obviously we're all PPRETTY impressive,Colin but um anyone else who caught your fancy yeah another one. I thinkhe's come through he's the same age as colon in the college system was MCameron Champ. He finished on othing I was IUNDA, but he was right there abouton the front nine in the last round just made it. It was a double Bo on theninth hole and then taltedes momentum, but jeese and h. He was hitting massivedrives hewas like stingers, that hardly left the grand, but they were massive.I reckon he isn't that, probably not as good as Colin, but you know he's in asimilar league and he'll be a very good plyer for a long time, so hes certainlycaught my eye this weekend. Yeahi didn't know too much about him,but I reme, I think he payed in one of the Australian tournaments late lastyear. I think Yeahmo Yeah Yore in I rememberim from that MMIF. You knowthoughts on chance weekend, yeah wasn't too bad plat a Solimn, solir game ofgolf. I thought mostly on the weekend, showed against the beat boys secelmatchet with his. I guess long driving.Everyone goes him an Beida, but he really showed nice touch around thegrains and shut himself on the Waken Infino, who else who impressed you whotook your Felton? I thought Matthew...

Wolf for me, Ye finish tide forth, tenunder three shots back and M. I really thought he took his game toanother level. Considering that was his first major ever so e was really good.With that unusual swim, I was just thinking man we're talkingabout all these names. The depth hin golf is really strong at the momentlike there's so many guys who you know Rin up there, e's, probably reallythirty forty blacks at the moment who could win a major at any time. It's rea it. It makes it reallyinteresting because e today there were so many good plies that top of the LADEBoland E, don't know whow's going to win, say golfs in a healthy position,post the tiger woods domination era, iethe dear whatever said I just lookingat the Ladybord now other people who I c lied, haven't really heard of Scottycheflaw. He was pretty impressive. The only shot to Onde on the final day without teconnes to beprety well throughout tewehe was, I t, Wa solid. He swing was, I think it was at law Solarso theyshored his t shot. He absolutely sentit like I actually thought he was going tofull o and he had a big slicer on a air. Irated him Sande Shafole. Obviously 'v C come toexpect that from him nowadays, but he was impressive again very consistentevery single day and yeah bu par from that everyone else was pretty much expected.I guess Howtol his first two days were pretty impressive, but then calling upthe WOBBLEORD lite bit a big disappointment on Thi Sunday wasbrook's, Ketka Yeah, Hans, gone, Moda talk and din't deliver like you said.Ye is quite after the third round, I'm pretty sore. It was. He said, a lot ofguys on the leaderboard, but I don't think they've won and hesaid I guess Dj has only on one. I don't know a lot of the guys up there and then Rike Oharganal Winnis 'cause.None of the others can, with the SMIRK, so just goes to show got a bit of head ofhimself. Do you think go to bring thet on the Sunday yeah? Well, that was asurprise. I thought 'cause. He he's one of the last two PA championships goingfore tid and he he's unflappable, usually he's rock solid, but um found abit of trouble early and you know Becomcama can be a little bit of youknow what sometimes next time Brooke's better cap his mouth shut. Hedisconcentrated on plying golf. He looke he looked porse for the wind,Alway Oll um tournament as well. He was kind of just a couple of shots behindthe lead at the end of everyday's play. So even most of us were saying isprobably still the favorite going into the fourth and final day, but yecomplete choke for over par on on a Sunday o Monday for us um in terms of other disappointments,broad, Oh Jack, an I broul, I'm so used to it. RT! IT'S G L HERE! Let you damn it! Oh, I mean terms of guys didn't miss the CAmost of the top lis made it, but I think rickie didn't make it. That was adisappointment. Leaschman bees, lashman a shat out tobaning at there he lovesto be, is Leshman Hedidn't, like the cat, either Um. I mean Jordan. SPATHwas disappointing. He di he had a shocking fine around. I think you and then tiger. Of course he neverreally got going, and that was be unfortunate. B'cause I love tiger. Ilove the way he uh goes about it, but he just never got going the old fellow.I think a lot of those you know. PLIES HATAV been up there. This e performedpretty well like Dj and even Rome and...

Justin rose and all those sort ofpliers were pretty solid over the four days yeah. I think Justin Thomas he's, probably the oneI'd pick out um in the end he shot one on the par forfour days, but he came in pretty pretty hot. The numbr one rank yeah, so Iguess similar to tiger. You would have just been expecting him to at leasthave one day where he Livit, you know lit it up, but he didn't really at allhim. Roar and tiger were kind of all sitting around that even Palmark Ol orweekend M. I have to say we're not allowd to talk smack about roaringMaceroy, apparently cause ben o a his big golf it. He takes me saying I think you said: Rori got dogged outof it or something unerstaheuses alwayse excuses, four ways: Yeah Um,inte e tos of the blorks have made it like. I don't know, was there anyone else who maybe who whomade the cut, but just let you down a little bit, maybe chorkd. On that finalday, I guess Hawshong. Do you think how tongs disappointed with his tourment orwird otapebing that good or he shouldn't e, because he eupidanda, sohe shouldn't fear Doiso from them Saturday after is round he? No, itwould have been Friday. Therand you've been there five six hours on the range.After his an like round, O Gulf Yeah, you had like five unnor. I think it wasthe second round and t N. apparently last week he split out with his coach.So that's what they were saying left like a name left its coach. That's whyI was on the range so surprising te cooked him Ouf, but Yo Udn, spea speed came into thefinal day, um seven over par by that's, pretty. What's happened to Tobe. Whatdo you think he just in a bit obod form or do really think he just picked earlyin his career and he's going to just Pat Heroun Nto, just an average player?What do you Reckon Jack? Oh Jeez, I think fins better off the nwe go fiYeoorif, you no um. I don't Itas an unusual performance. Ireckon good effort to make Ta Waken, but im he is struggling at the moment,especially with the patter and the driver which to be iery, important,oniday, thena, Terin, tennisjas yeah, no, but we'd like to say a bit of improvementfrom him lately considering his staters his career unbelievably well with a fewmages in first feears TAT IM. I settled back with the pack now and he's got abattle to make the UM fers cup in a SE wakes causum. The cut off is sitting atNiney. Fourth in the First Cup right now, so look out, I'd to say: He's got, draw moneysideHspath, he still II. Wouldn't panic he's in a bit of a rot, but he'll be back. He's got talent, yeah,that's true! True Gaddidn't, Athat Wellgo M. over the weekend was GaryWoodland and Patrick Kantley they've Ben Im, pretty good fo there. So disipnpresidents cut BELLSR, yeah Garry Wood. I think he was playingwith Brooks, I think, and they h they ESPECI. I think the first two days, theplayine together Yeah Tha, a W, was just letting down the boysactually look like always still o the...

President's Co. I do o but yeah m.that's pretty much it in terms of the PJ chammionship Fi. I saw you talkingtoday now golf grew chat about Gaby Ruffles. We went to school with her wooee. Be Ee. Explain to me what that tournamentstructure is also confused. It was like thirty, eight holes or something so the first day or first two daysesstrokeplay- to play thirty six Coltsumand, then the top. I think it'stop twelve playmats play the next saiddaythree and then I think it's day for is the finen. I think the I lat thirty Shalin callstate OKAA. I was going to say like surly. There wasn't twenty Playo o n,you Kno, but then I I twenty six on the last day ye in the final. They haveeighteen in the morning lunch and then eigtaining the other Buti. I thinkshe's fair enough to get excited about her because Um the college system overthere's really strong for golf. I will call in and Cameron Champ on the guysthat talks about they've just come out of college a year or two ago, so she'sdoing really well in these tournaments over there. When she hits the ProseWatch out, she could be um the next carry web or something likethat on the isanal yeah female golf players yeah. So the toll I forget tomention the Tolle E E was talking about, was what was it? The women's amateur? US Open you wes Ma, like yer yeah Yo, wanted to at last EA yeah yeah, so shes liing it o Ye Imben.That's all! I thought we've got IRAC and we leave with a few predictions. Um Jack, robent, whe WHA. What's next the?U S, Openin, I think. Just over a month, I think it'sto anyanyso edition for WHO's going to run there ball predictions O I'. I Wa Beter have to be Bo. I likeDaniel Berger's name. So can I pick him? No, I'm DRINTG UM. I think one of the big names are Winnin.I'm going to pick. I haven't thought too much about this, but I'm goingtopick roaring e goingto dance back. I think he'sGoingta take it out and then the mastes is after which I think Um Arican JasonDay might win the masters. That's my prediction. We all want, or SA Tigers athid record breaking wind, so yeah how long I heian one will take. I don'tknow I was going to pick him for the masters. Then I thought that'd bebebiased. I did, but I wish hoby does. I mean, is Jason Day nor bo now Jason Dis in good. For me, Aontonwitwith only about six five, six, like a late ozzis that are up so compared tothe thirty forty Americans mm yeah, Yenow or that Y or I'd have to say I'm kepkup as one the last two. U S opensso look out and then just and Thomas it'sabout Tim before performs in Te Major. I reckon yeah a hundred and Cenagreeiwuld like to say J t. You do all the major I iy can blow Yeah Yeah YeahThewhdorkins, the best player who've not won a major. I need O lite TESTIMA knowledge therevery PA, John Ro, En Hain, the one one yeah rikie, Riki, joter yeah 'cause,he's been good for a long time. Obviously, J J T he's one on right.

No, don't think he's O Ol me. A fleetwould yeah has' couple of those Euroans while Paul Casey was ut Montono. Ifthey rede SA would ply for a long time B, t andeki's been consistent. YeahBidekis punning's just been letting down on the pressure yeah he was. Hewas probably just a few strokes off being disappointing. I think t would bea bit harsh. He foobut didn't really lot enup in any particular round. Rosonmight have run for it, but the bivice we spend eighy seconds totalk about Briston. That guy is a natter seriously. I'm warming to him. I think a IM, aactuallry enice e BOIN. I think you're, a friend of every single Gulf of Tha,Fre, sorry Otit! Think you Gott, like you just love everyone. Not Again. IAGREE OI!

Ent, Filmin, raks Jack for coming backon Nowa is that, thank you. Jeeze, say boys. Welcome back to the Honobale PogCASSIS's episode, Forty Eight of the show two away from the milestone. Fifty,as always, I'm joined by Christian pilcher welcome. They Thanksmar forgood to be back yeah, always good to be chattn with Ya m. So today we're just going to be. We'vedone quite a few episodes similar to this, but we're going to be discussingEngland cricket once again we're going to be discussing the recent test matchthat ended two days F, going into Pakistan, the first of a three manchseries and then we'll be channing about the England island. One day, seriesthat took place over the last for fortdight s we're going to start offwell, firstly, how I at Ma, I feel like I need to this time. I Ma. Obviouslythe people listening can't see this, but I think I need to mention that youdo have a you're in a nice little llication thatactually doesn't look too nice. I can't even tell I can't tell if it's like awasteland or but you've got a background going Um yeah, currently atmy holiday house at the moment, and I think there's a bit going on in thebackground, not sure who did that, but I'm Obut, I I had Sim e Hemo, youah you're in inchate surgery yeah. This isoutside the sun's out, while now it's gone, but it's nice and warm. So I thout odd,when in Melbourn, I've learntd that anything over twelve degrees Youe gotto get outside and SEC it up. You gotta Have Ron Wbecause, even evenin summer, you're not guaranteed that so def wake up sa the weather and I waslike yeahll, make sure I'dl get outside so we're filling outside. So if yo herany weird sounds, it could just be k bit en atob, there's a fairly majorroad right next to me, so it could be some cals as well, but yeah Um. So ifwithout feather dew, we may as well just get stuck in H, how did yo? What did you think ofthe first test?...

Well, to be honest, I dodn't ActuallyWatch too much of it, but Um. I must say I thought I thought Pakistan andone after the first sitningses butturnedout to be a good fight back from England. So pleasing result, Byeah Yeh Isit, was definitely a big result.I think Ingoma behind April the whole time until maybe an hour to go beforethey won like they just didn't, look likewinning the whole time, mainly thanks to Ashah mussued, a hundred in thefirst innings, which really tset up Pakistan. In the end, it was obviouslya good win from Pakistan, but I win Fromenglan, but it was pretty badfrom Pakistan to let that slip. What how many ID they score in the firstthings, Te scored three hundred and twenty six and they had the lad of o ehundred and twenty Um going into the second innings, which is pretty averageUm. I guess it's a great wind fromEngland's point of view. Um, probably shouldn't just look at it as apesimist am fogus on the negatives I should say fair play to England. Um didvery well giveen the circumstances I wrote them off. Did you reckon comingintodayfor? They were a chance or a I'd, written them off as well. I think Ishut you a text on day three or four ous like Ye, with certain loss incoming here. Yeah Yeah, I think in coming intoday for England needed twohundred and twenty or something with they had all the wickets left, but ormaybe ite was a bit more out of there, but yeah they did pretty well, itlooked a. There was a bit of earlywell, not a collapse. Bithou quite a fewweickeds lost early and then Butleran works put on a magical pondership ofabout o hundred and fifty they did it fast as well. They counterattacked. It came out in social on social media that Joebro had said to Jospotla before he went out about. He said you know who you are just bout.You love chasing down targets just about like it's a one day and he didwas words. KMM works went in a straw, cride of just under a hundred, I'mpretty sure so very well done to them and well. I mayas well just bring it up now, 'cause we're talking about them and that's whythey got my five and four votes: Wite back doing the votes again, inloving myaverts. At the moment I just worked out a Bronloa from round one to the currentday Um. So that's definitely no huge waste of time and life. But that's AlRight. So I gave my five roads to Chris Works and my fourboats to Jos. Sputla.Did you have the same or did you get? I definitely had works as five. He was.He was obviously getting the five but our family, those votes that they'requite hard to Tocipher, especially when you're doingfive of them, but I actually gave Ma forder stew abroad 'cause. I thought hewas England's Bestbola easily and did that is bold. Did it a little bit withthe bat as well with a Cheki twenty nine knot out to ensure that the ladwasn't monstrous going into the secninies? That's a huge callmate Um. Idon't mind it though I gave him Bonro, but I think that's pretty blastiff onUm mcharmesud to be taking him over intoFa. So I gave my forte Jo Spotli to think. Although he only scored whatdid,he score seventy five Um they didn't go just under a hundredstrark grate. By the way they went at seventies, but I think they slowed downstrill, Bi and Wenyeah. I think when it got ta Bet closer, they got a bit morepatient. Yeah Butler made seventy five. So although it's nothing close toScharmesu's hundred and fifty six artists thought, I think I'. Do Don'tdo this enough in my votes, I don't favour the wind, like. I don't respectthe win enough and it's very rare in a cricket game thatyou can really put the wind down to one innings or one bowling like spell, butit's pretty clear that the wind came...

...down to this Butler and workspartnership. So that's why I pretty much instantly picked them. As my five and four TEHAVworks got eighty four not out, then he took two for eleven maids nineteen, the first ININGSOGRATand took two for forty three in the first, so he's ended up with about fourfor fifty and a hundred runs andturtle. Finally, one wicked, so it's a prettybody good test. I was looking on to it. I think IC CEE or someone tweated, whodo you think, is man the match and even all the Pakistani people were saying:It's works as well, which is pretty rare, because you would think soon. Icoe one hundred and fifty six in the first endings would instantly get fivevotes. Es O Sharmesud Limited to three votes. For me. I don't know how he wentfor you yep three boats for me as well Um. I think the wind probably came into acan a little bit there by giving troad the before, but he did screw up dark inthe secondings, but he did have a great test. Obviously great first innings BEA,three three me as well. Yeah it took took six wickets. I think three an hyeah, so he got my one vote and the I gave Yasisha two votes. He took twoforfers. Yes in Sho, it's always a hard one because he takes a lot of wickets,but he bowls so many overs and he he usually goes for quite a few runs aswell. Actually Mussi said the other day that he's like a good limiter of rutsand helps the other guys take wickets Pi, no offencefo. I don't really agreewith that. Ui Know you watchs more pextone criiket than me, but I think,like I think his bowling statistics in his career, like his average and stuff,show that he actually goes to quite a lot of runs and but it's more just dueto the fact that he bowlslod over. So it's always tough to judge Um, heswickeds but yeah. He took eight wickeds for the game almost out of ten far, but this this picth tid favor Spinnis as aShir, an stine. I think you are a bit more troubled down in Southhampton,where the next two tess ar but we'll see how we go. So he got two for me andBrot Borgar one for me. So who got you two and one two went to Jos Butler um? I mustsubmit he was. He didn't, have the best game with the gloves, which is why Idocked him a few points. He missed a stumping dropped. A couplecatches led in a few bars but hedirll Badlyyeah, but then then againas he said, he was he pretty much won the game with works at the end, but yeptwo for him and one for Shaw, yeah, very fair, so that now justquickly looking, we wonn't folks on this we'll go back to talking about thetest series but im in terms of our overall leaderboards, for I don't knowtest cricket with the ear or test Cricketer Oth the summer in England orwhatever. I've got broad and Butler on top, whichI have to say, I'm not happy about, but she's Licky to be in the T. I ca can'tkeep saying that to be fair, he has played too really good tests. HenceWhite Ga votes, so I think he's locked in his spot for a little bit. Now buthim in Broider on seven than I've got works type with Rost and chase on SSO.You've got still broil on ten votes. I think yeah he must be not for Mel Yeah.His wel clear works is on ant for you Um and then obviously the Pakistanis,Um Thi, is only their first test for you. So wait. Did you say you gave Jostwo votes, YEP, okay! So Oh yeah, that's your firstvote for Butler, so y they're not really relevant, so few, it's justbroader and then Mor and then a long ot bactisstics. So speaking of Stokes, ithas been announced that he will not be playing the rest of the series hesgoing to New Zealand for family reasons, which obviously takes him out for quitea while, because know he's going to quarantane there and then quarantaine.He um well in England, said Thi ne...

...chance of hi playing cricket for therest of the summer. Pretty much I didn't think he would applayed the ttwenties anyway. Obviously I don't really like talking about the sportingimpact with stuff, like this all, like long term, injuries 'cause. It'sobviously hales in comparison to in importance. It's just a game, reallycricket bu Um in terms of the impact on the England team. I think it's prettyhuge, although he hasn't done too much in the last two tests. I think Engamwere Batman Short in the last the way they've been picking their teamin the moment I think they're. bouting short, I think Baler is six and worksat seven, although they did really well. This test is ambitious at best, so allof a sudden to take one of the best or the second best battern in that Englandteam out of that Middle Order, it's going to leave England seriously thin. Do you think with stokes leaving theteam? Do you reckon they have to go back to Butler at seven and then picktwo batsmen, or do you think it sh straight swap cruelly for M stokes?Well I'll say that I don't think I think they will keep the extra bowler'cause the reason they they've been playingthis Extua Bowleris, because stokes has been unfit to bowl the last few testsand Nowe, obviously can't boat 'cause he's out. So I think we'll play an extra bolla stillwhether we should or not that's a different question. I'm not too sure Imean it has worked since we have started doing it, but it does main thetoproader. The top order has to bat well for to work. I, as you said, um it's pretty hard tojudge because it's been working well, but I don't write it Um, especially nowthat that bouting auder is so fragile. Um All of a sudden roots out of formhas been formost three years now, sibles in good touch, but you knowHibben Burns aren't experienced like veterans yet and then part, althoughheis really talented, he's not like consistent and reliable at this stage,so I meanbules obviously had issues and test cries whole career. I think it'spretty ambitious Um to keep it with the six bots. I do get the logic withstokes out, but I don't really know why you need furpaseballs anyway, um like even whenstokes, was playing like.I just don't get way, needful paseballs, I think, even without an Orrounder, Ithink three paste bowlers and a spinner's good enough m. for mepersonally anyway, it might mean you have to drop James Anderson because Idon't know if he can handle that workload anymore Um. I think they might be resting himanyway, just 'cause his D, I think he's Qote three tests in a row. Now, maybefour- I don't know, I think, even set out the second test. Spot an'y thingthey'll want to be pushing him too much Um. So I wouldn't be surprised if hesits out so for me the ideal lineupthat. Theissue is, who the other Batton to bring in would be but yea. For me, the IdealLina would be to sit out James Eneson drop Butler down to seven works down toeight Slidin Zat crul at three rootful, Pope five and then I'd probably justgive Dan Lawrence a crack at six, but Idon't tee. That's very likely. I thinkthe thing is, I don't even know if Jardenley's in the Bubble d actuallydon there, it's confusing Um, but so do you recon you reconxaccray at full, oris that coral at three? What would you prefer to see? I'd prefer him to befree and Rood at full. Definitely Yeah! I don't know it's just pointless.Really, I'm not sure why they toyed with root at four and then likehe seemed to prefer it and then they just chacked him back to three like acouple of tests. Lato doesn't make much sense to me m but yeah. I guess I'm happy to saycrul again an another crack. I think it was pretty unfairly dropped in thefirst place. I know it was for tame...

...balance, but nothing of He's n doing.Hopefully they don't pick dantly again. Hopefully they give it a chance tosomeone else. To be honest, I'd almost rather see Butler and work state at sixand seven an say dently giving another crack. But U Yeahso that's pretty muchfor the test in terms of Pakistan ere you impress with their side or do youthink Ingow win this series pretty comprehensibly well monitial frauts,where these blocks are way better than the West indies, but then we sort of wedominated them on the last two days, but Um thttheye still a lot better than theWest indies. So I could save them winning a game, especially especially with storksoutnow yeah. I think there'll be a very goodeffort, ifing a Whitewashe them. I think two one's probably the mostlikely serious result Um if the weather holds but yeah. I don't know, I don'tknow. I think I think both times are in a very simmile spot. I think they'reboth batsmen short, although the MiddleOrder of Pakistan's very strong, I think Shid Abcan at seven, although hedid have a nice little camear in the first innings. I don't think he's goodenough to be a nuther, seven really m. He was just like patting up and runningUm, so he's clearly not like a talent emboucement, but the problem is whenwe're talking about this in the predictions and prethe episode, theother Batsron in their squared Anorgudeita they're in really bad formand they've, never really done anything in their test careers. So I don'treally know what they do. I think they've got TA stick with it. They werepretty close to a win. After all, it was just one part in the ship away, onewicked away really from winning that test Um. So I I think that'll probablystick with the same ine up. I think the bawling attacks, Fawn Yeh, so yeahthey'e, just probably gon Ta- lift- I did think Babara's arm- wouldstruggle. Although he made seveny in the first and ing was both enning. Hegot out Simil away nicking off trying to play a pretty aggressive, comerdrive. I did think he would have issues with that. 'cause he's a very fluentplay. He likes to feel the Balaabl where she can't do in England, but yeahAzaali really needs to Livt. They were saying something outrageous like hisaverageis fourteen outside of Asia, ru up yeah, I donknow. If that's a hundredpercent co huge in asemen yeah, I don't know if it's just in England or B,pretty sure they were saying fourteen or something outside Asia, which isoutrageous and is usatiyak en he's the captain, sir, that he needs to lift inparticular bea. I guess Wel to see how it goes. That's pretty much t for that. We'rejust going to see how the next two tests roll- I have to say, Ias thinkingabout this before we came on it's frustrating 'cause, all the one dayguys are back playing countyg cricket, which is good to see, but then I'mpretty sure this is the only round they can play before they go into the ttwenty bubble and then, before you know it they'll be playing ipl and now atiswith the modern cricket calendar. It's just so hard for these guys to likeimpress to make the test team if they're playing limited, overs cricketY. AH, like I don't really know how Johnny Bastor has a time to show thathe can still play test cricket without, like sacrificing, is limited o hiscareer a little bit. I guess that's the decision they've gonto make, but j Johnny Barstor is someone. I don't know how it all works,because I don't know if you have to have been in the bubble. This wholetime to be picked in the team, but Johnny Besto is someone who would notshock me if they gave him anote crack, especially if they need someone toabout lowe like number six or something Um. That is if they only pick three bolls,which is a pretty interesting call. But U Yeah, I don't know it's probably nottoo likely. Really, it doesn't make much sense, but I know they do loveJohnny, Yeyeah Yeah. I doubt it yeah, it's true, but no, it's exciting! Enall the one day and t twenty plays play...

...county, like Tom bans playing forSomercet, I think it is be it's sader than get more cracks at it, but that takes us to the island Um tourof England, such a big to such a large journey. Um H. What do you think of this series?You watchd probably a bit more this than the test mounch Cactur, I I wasprobably similar as well, but on what do you think of this series? We impressane island or do you think they just won one game Um,just 'cause England was playing like the Baiting El. Obviously the the timezone made it so we could only really watch. Probably half of the firstinnings may be a bit more than half so the first Turu one day is. We sawislands te about six for fifty in both of them, and I was just like Jesus Cross Bu. The Wasta do, but thenye wake up and see Kevin o'brin did some things and then obviously the lastone day, askd didn't watch it, but got no idea what happened there, like Idon't know if we boadlock Shit Ol, they just put on a clinic, but I was definitely a shock wriking upto that yeah. That took me by like a pretty big surprise as well. I Iwouldn't lie, even though they really strigbled, especially early on theevenings. Actually, like I didn't mind the islandOo, I think they've got a few pretty good playes. They were clearly out ofthei depth so but it has to be said, coming back from lockdown, I think bothteams deserve a bit of like slack m. You can't really expect them to justcome out and start playing like woe cup form. Once again, but for me the manwho impressed me the most man of the series, I did my vote for this seriesas well. He won my playe this years as well as David Willy. how Di ATPO, blonderous series Umobviously helped by the fact that the top water was very fragile, but he tookeight wickets at an average of eighteen and how many runs wit. The stick owheruns he made. Ninety eight runs in two innings and one of them were not out sojust dominated with bat and ball, not sure who would have picke that inour preview. For that series I didn't even know if we had him in the team. Ithink I don't know I think who're in a tossup between him and Topley. I think Um but yeah. That's pretty outrageous thathe staked his claim that strongly. There is a vacant spot in that WorldCup Tame. Isn't there because plunket, if I'm not mistaken, he was in thatline. Ut wasn't he for the well CA, yeah and archer as well Oryeah Um. So Ithink I actually, I think plankemint are retired for none a e hundred percent shore, butthey were talking about it throughout the series. So, if there's a bowlingspot open, basically we Willo's just gon and start shout with both hands.None of the England quicks really impressed that much toply only got theone game. I only took one wicked sik mood. U He took four wickets in threegames, but he was really blown out of the water byDavid Willie. I have to say I do agree with what K Pwas saying. I don't know if you heard it in one of the. I think it was thefirst Ordyi o might have been the second one. He was just saying it's.The stupidest idea to rest plays after they've had a five month break ecauselockd on and I ha a it's very true is Socodin. AM They give everyother cryyeah I wanted. I understand they wantd to give everyonthe crack, but he wassaying like tomncarn being rested is like the stupidest thing. Can Anon Lione match? I play two agoe actually didn't do verywell. Yeah Olk's, pretty I was Veryi, was very disappointed with Karen...

...econoy right is six and Wie. Only onewicked, I think he issu Inowthi, sounds Wactaly, think he's soited againstBetetans, because they'll try and attack him more Um, especially t theback end of enings they'll. Try and you know be going at tens, tens andTwelvehs, and over Um wher Irland were pretty happy to go t like Sixes, whichI didn't think soon inhis bowling style that much Bieh David Willie Man of theowl, I have to say, obviously m not really much of a Shockis aqualityplayer, but Adil Rached. He really starred with the ball five wicketsAconyrad, four, so really impressive stuff from him. The island play justhad no idea at some points with him and he really took control of the Games inthe middle. In the middle periods, Moan Arli didn't take a single wicket Um, somaybe similar to Tomcarren. He needs people to attack him, maybe but yeahprobably not ideal for his hopes to stay in this oneday team. I I knowhe's a bit of a legend, but he didn't have the greatest series either. He hadhe only about him once actually, which was pretty sit, fer him, and he onlymade three. So he could be getting shipped off out of that team for maybelame Dolson or something which is not ideal news, formolion Aly in terms ofthe island side, to quite a few playrs impressed me Cutas Campfir. It was hisfirst EMA series for island. He made a hundred and twenty seven in two innngsUm one not out as well. He made two fifties and then, with the ball he tookfive wickets in twenty one. Overs strike out o twenty five. So althoughhe was batting very lare, so a lot of the times he had had like plenty oftime to Bot, he did very well M he's a young Guy Ho came o from South Africa.I think they were telling a story. Apparently in counting cricket he wasvessing, Nilobrian, Kevin's brother and he um Ni was batting and curdis camperwalked up to him and said by the way, I'm aletger an T, pay fileand. If youwant to pick me whichpretty strange tactic, maybe I'lltry that tactic for Scotland ill find some Scottish Crickedi just let himknow but yeah and then in terms of the other vote. So canfor got five votesfor me and the bearstone sterling were also tied on five. They both scoredhundreds opening, the batting in their respective games, so ye had pretty bigwind for island, though Um, although they lost the series to winOdia against somewhat full strength, England team, it doesn't happen everyday as I I think I put it on my instegram story. The last time Englandlost retine thit was ranked outside the top town. I think it was early. TwentyEighttenin Scotland, so Um doesn't happen too often, though so very impressive, isle and promisingstuff, but yeaany any lost words. On this little one day series I cadn't Liwasn't that important, but Um Yeahel, UM, yeah I'll, just sie cangrads on island.For that CLINIQU and the lost one dial took everyon by surprise. I must mi Iwent to. I went to sleep and where we're going at like seven and a half and over with plentyof wickeds in hand, and then we didn't even make three fifty o be collapse-must appened after Morgan got out, but yeah Ian Island deserved. It wait. Did I say Tbest, I scored ahunder yeah. I think so. EAN Es co ID to sorry yeah, I'm not bad M own Molmanwas Yre only censuring in terms of that prediction. I just remember we dedpredictions. I think we both had Bestotoran Scor. He was forth Bhind,Morgan billings. I didn't mention beillings best. We sedhed pretty well, but he was kindo coming in junk Tom, so Morgan billings willy and an bestoinat fall so wrpretty far off there Um to...

...wickeds. I once again don't really knowwho we said. I think we B aid cane who was tired forth behind Willie, RachtaMamod. So two really good predictions there from Pilchen Cork um I havingaabouting, I think you said Bal Berne and I said Kevin O'Brien Bel Burney wassecond behind sterling. Um and Irbrin was sick, SSome really good. Some morereally good. Predictions, I guess Balberni did Eri, I score a century anden island bowling Jeez, I don't know if we eer met it to prediction. I said Shthink he took a signal. Wicket N Sing, Simmi, tin Ye. I sing no wickets. Heonly go on five Mamens, so you'll brobther- I I don't know who I said. Ithink I said Boy Drankin and he didn't even play Umpretty goed to go forthemod from us. We are in sightful men, so yeah. That's all we've got today,intend the cricket just another short episode.
