It’s been sometime since our last round up of happenings on the Edges & Sledges Cricket Podcast. We’ve been busy and since our last update in March, IPL 2019 has finished, the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 has started, Edges & Sledges has re-branded, joined India’s largest podcast network (the IVM podcast network) and released a dozen episodes all while taking a break between the IPL and the World Cup. Oh and yes, we’ve also interviewed our first ever international cricket captain. Read on!

IPL SPECIALS IPL 2019 – Opening weekend round-up, the Delhi Capitals and fantasy cricket update

Varun is back on the podcast this week and joins Ashwin and DJ to discuss the “damp squib” IPL 2019 opener CSK v RCB and the first double header of the year – KKR v SRH and MI v DD.

We focus this week on the Delhi Capitals and discuss their fielding. batting and bowling in their win against the Mumbai Indians. We also discuss our suggested changes to the Delhi Capitals XI going forward.

Finally, if you are playing fantasy cricket in our league, we wrap up with a fantasy update.

IPL 2019 first week: The Mankad and the Mumbai Indians (feat Gauravi Shah)

IPL 2019 had an explosive first week with the Ashwin-Buttler Mankad followed closely by two no balls – one that was called by the umpires and one that was not. It also had three centuries (Samson, Warner, Bairstow), a 99 (Prithivi Shaw) and a super over (DC v KKR) Ashwin and DJ cover all the highlights (and lowlights) from matches 4-12. They also speak to Gauravi Shah, a Mumbai Indians fan, about everything from the selection of Yuvraj Singh instead of Ishan Kishan to which Pandya she would choose. She also responds to selected listener tweets.   Finally, we round up the Edges & Sledges fantasy league after the first 12 games. [Link to DJ’s chat with the Cricket Badger Radio show is here if you want to hear his reaction on the day of the Mankad]

IPL 2019 second week, Delhi Chokers, Beats by DreRuss and where does RCB go from here? (feat Alok Prasanna Kumar)

DJ and Varun discuss the big talking points from the second week of IPL 2019 (matches 13 to 21). From the Delhi Capitals’ incredible collapse against Kings XI Punjab to Dhoni’s non-mankad against Mumbai Indians to Andre Russell’s insane assault on RCB – it’s all on this week’s show!

We also speak to Alok Prasanna Kumar, the RCB superfan, about the franchise’s poor start to this year’s IPL and what issues the Bengaluru team must address to become real contenders in future seasons. Also Virat Kohli’s captaincy comes under close scrutiny.

Last but not the least, an IPL fantasy league update and some thoughts from the podcasters on this year’s format and the Dream 11 platform.

IPL 2019 third week, reactions to India’s World Cup squad and Kings XI Punjab feat. Rohan Narula

This week we have a bumper episode where Varun and Ashwin discuss with Kings XI Punjab superfan Rohan Narula all the happenings from the third week of IPL 2019. Was Dhoni right to storm out on the field? Is Ashwin a good captain? Can KXIP make the IPL 2019 playoffs? The answers to all those questions (and more) are on this week’s show! Also fantasy tips are back for those playing.

Varun wraps the first half up with his fantasy cricket tips, which include some paternity stalking plans.

The second half of the podcast has Siddharth Poddar aka Pod on as the Rajasthan Royals superfan of the week. We discuss the highs and lows of RR’s campaign this IPL and why they insist on paying a king’s ransom for Jaydev Unadkat.

IPL 2019 fifth week, the Dinda Academy, Russell explodes & Sunrisers Hyderabad feat Akshay Sarma

Ashwin and DJ are back with an update from week five of IPL 2019 (matches 39-47). It’s been a week of keepers with Dhoni nearly getting 26 off the last over to take CSK home against RCB, Parthiv scoring a direct hit to win the game, Rishabh Pant scoring a superb 78* against RR and Dinesh Karthik scoring 97* against RR as well. We also talk about the Dinda Academy controversy, Virat Kohli’s reaction after catching Ravichandran Ashwin and Andre Russell airing KKR’s dirty laundry. We end the first half of the podcast with our delighted reactions to Delhi Capitals qualifying for the playoffs, qualification scenarios and an IPL fantasy cricket update.

The second half of the show is all about the Sunrisers Hyderabad with superfan Akshay Sarma. He gives us his views on, amongst other things, the Warner-Bairstow bromance, Rashid Khan’s issues, Bhuvi’s form, the Sid Kaul dilemma and SRH’s chances of qualifying for the play-offs. Most importantly he clarifies why Yusuf Pathan was picked in the team. We round up the show with a fantasy cricket tip from Akshay, who won the IPL fantasy league we played last year.

IPL 2019 sixth week, playoff preview & Kolkata Knight Riders featuring Prabhav Sharda

Varun and Ashwin are back with an update from week six of IPL 2019 (matches 48-55). It’s been a week of lasts, with RCB, RR and KXIP bowing out of the tournament, as well as lots of international players saying goodbye to the tournament. We also talk about the incredible Super Over between SRH and MI, the rain curtailed game betweeen RCB and RR, the importance of Net Run Rate, and which players will be missed in the playoffs.

The second Australia v India test match starts on Friday and we couldn’t be more excited! India lead 1-0 and the wicket at the new Perth ‘Optus’ stadium looks super spicy (check out the grass cover in this picture from @BCCI’s twitter account).

This is the first test match to be played at the new Perth Stadium instead of the old WACA ground, which was one of the quickest pitches in the world in its time. Anyone else remember this spell from Ishant Sharma to Ricky Ponting at the WACA in 2008?

Despite having only a three day break between the first and second test matches, both bowling attacks will be raring to go. Apart from Mitchell Starc’s slow start at Adelaide, the focus will once again be on the batting line-ups. Australia fought hard at Adelaide and seemed to surprise their supporters with how close they ran India. India will be looking to skipper Virat Kohli to score big.

In injury news, with Rohit Sharma and Ashwin missing from the Adelaide winning XI due to injuries, there is a good chance that India will go in with four quick bowlers (Shami, Ishant, Bumrah and Bhuvaneshwar) and Hanuma Vihari replaces Rohit Sharma. If India don’t play a spinner, this will be only the third time in the history of Indian test cricket that we have gone into a test without a specialist spinner. The second time was at Jo’burg earlier in 2018 under Kohli. India won that test so let’s hope a similar story is repeated here!

Australia’s biggest worry will be Tim Paine’s bruised finger.

India head home

India finally head home after finishing their tour of England.

It’s been a long tour and while 4-1 in the tests was a disappointing scoreline, India can leave with their heads held high.

There is still work to do but plenty of positives from the series – the seam bowlers were brilliant, slip catching was decent, Chepu’s hundred at Southampton and Pant and Rahul scoring hundreds at Oval. We could go on but what we really loved was Virat Kohli proving to everyone he is the greatest batsman on the planet at the moment. He may not have got his hundred at Lords but it was on this blog that we first said in 2016 that he would go on to conquer England.

Even more importantly, we were really glad to see that India were competitive in all the test matches (save where the conditions were massively against them in at Lords). This is a huge improvement from 2014 where we were completely rolled over after the famous Lords win.

Edges & Sledges

So this week we have something a little different on our Edges & Sledges podcast. We were invited by James Buttler of the fantastic Cricket Badger Radio Show Podcast to do a joint show all about England and India and we jumped at the opportunity! We think you’ll find it pretty interesting to see how English fans viewed the series despite winning the test series 4-1.

We had a lovely chat with James about the state of Indian cricket, English cricket, test cricket generally and looked ahead to the Asia Cup, India’s tour of Australia and England’s tour of Sri Lanka. Of course, we also spoke about the two captains, Virat Kohli’s batting, Alastair Cook’s retirement, Jimmy Anderson’s record and Sam Curran’s brilliance. There’s lots more on the podcast itself so please have a listen when you get a second. You know where to find the latest episode of Edges & Sledges – if not, you can take your pick of the platforms we are on – iTunes , Google Play , YouTube, Anchor, Overcast, Pocket Casts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Breaker, Castbox, Podbean, Radiopublic, Sticher and Tune in Radio.
