India suffer knockout blow

World Cup conspiracy theories, controversial kits, and Take That

Ankur, Isa and Aatif reflect on the latest stories from the World Cup including the clutch of South Asian sides supporting India for the first time in history, as well as the hoo-ha around their new away kit. Isa tells us how Take That played a key role in the mood of their world cup winning dressing room and the boys try to get her to belt out some notes.

World Cup conspiracy theories, controversial kits, and Take That

Doosra – Malinga Magic, Afghan anguish, Shami shines & Pakistan promise.

Isa and Ankur managed to prise Aatif away from Pakistani selfie hunters at Lord’s to discuss how the South Asian sides have performed at the mid-way point of the tournament. They give their verdicts on the teams and praise Sri Lanka who caused the biggest shock of the competition so far after their win over hosts England. The team ask if the tournament finally got the spark it needed, after Afghanistan almost upstaged the Lankans performance, when they took the Indians down to the wire. After a video showed Sarfaraz Ahmed copping abuse in front of his family – the team talk social media and the abuse players cop during a tournament when results unravel.

Pakistan and Indian tournament preview and retro kits

Isa, Aatif and Ankur preview the World Cup chances of two South Asian powerhouses – Pakistan and India. Can the team in green add to their sole triumph which was way back in 1992?

Frank leads Lankans to history thanks to Perera, the story behind his cockney name and the Countdown to the World Cup is on….

With Aatif gallivanting in Istanbul….Isa and Ankur return with guest and Sri Lankan Cricket nut, Mark Machado, to discuss the historic win led by Frank Karunaratne against South Africa thanks to a superb knock from Kusal Perera. Mark fills us in on why Lankan players have such cockney-sounding first names and how the unlikely win could be the catalyst the Island needs to return to winning ways. It’s also less than 100 days to go to the World Cup – Ankur headed down to his old high school where the World Cup trophy and former England pace ace Devon Malcolm engaged with young South Asian kids who will get the chance to be involved in the showpiece event this summer.
