Hopefully you’re aware that we (Alex Bowden and Dan Liebke) are doing The Ridiculous Ashes Podcast. Series 1 is about the 1997 series and we’ll add each of the six episodes to this page as they go live. Episode three features England operating on a higher plane of collapsification and Michael Bevan filth.
The Ridiculous Ashes is an alternative trophy that is awarded to the side that produces the most hilarious and absurd cricket across an Ashes series. We first did it as a written thing over at Cricket 365 for the 2019 series.
You’ll find embeds of the episodes in Series 1 below.
You can also subscribe through whatever podcasting thing you use.
In this premiere episode of The Ridiculous Ashes Podcast, Dan and Alex revisit the 1st Test of the 1997 Ashes. Surprise hundreds, Nasser Hussain having a go at himself, Jason Gillespie batting with a runner – it’s all in there.
Dan and Alex return to Lord’s for the 2nd Test of the 1997 Ridiculous Ashes. In between all the rain, they discuss the fair-mindedness of Ian Healy, a heroic lack of Alec Stewart action, some Waugh-Warne Hindsight Corner and much more.
Dan and Alex brave the hot Manchester sun to bring you ridiculousness from the 3rd Test of the 1997 Ashes. This episode features the art of the collapse, pointlessness from John Crawley, the filthiness of Michael Bevan’s bowling and plenty more.
