Anderson's 600, Dutch women's cricket and the CPL bio-bubble

On Stumped we discuss whether Jimmy Anderson is the greatest pace bowler of all time after he became the first seam bowler to take 600 Test wickets and we reflect on the third test match between England and Pakistan where Zak Crawley scored 267. How has the postponement of the Women's World Cup affected teams who were hoping to qualify? The head coach of the Dutch women's national side Sean Trouw joins us to explain what they have been doing during Coronavirus and how they have seen a rise in participation numbers since the start of the pandemic. Plus one of the biggest parties in world sport, the Caribbean Premier League began last week but how does the bio-bubble in Trinidad and Tobago compare to England? We speak to Danny Morrison who is a journalist there.

Edwards: Missed opportunity to showcase women’s cricket

We reflect on the first Test match between England and Pakistan and discuss the remarkable comeback from England. Plus Jos Buttler said he ‘owed his team some runs’ following his wicket-keeping mistakes, so the team look at how wicket-keeping has evolved over the years. The Women’s ODI World Cup has been postponed until 2022, so former England captain Charlotte Edwards joins us to speak about women’s cricket and the lack of it to be exact - there has been no international women’s cricket played since March.. Plus, a report has been published saying 34% of players in a host of T20 domestic leagues have experienced either late, or non-payment, problems. We speak to the head of the global players’ union.
