  2. Whenever you say something stupid or your brain comes to a grinding halt, Andy Zaltzman takes those bits out

Listen to the latest episode of Andy Zaltzman’s World Cricket Podcast to hear us talking about Darren Gough ‘gesturing’ at the crowd as well as the potential for sponsored comfort breaks.

Andy himself tells us on what basis he’s settled on the Deccan Chargers as his IPL team (it’s to do with the second part of their name).


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.

  1. At a Surrey v Yorkshire game, shortly before Goughie’s move down south. Our hero is fielding on the boundary.

    Goughie: “If you don’t shut up I’m going to punch your teeth down your throat. Don’t think I won’t, I’ve done it before”.

    Small child to spectator: “Mr, mr what are you going to say to him next!”

  2. He was probably a bit touchy about suggestions he was going to become a southerner.
