Reverse Swept Radio 147 - A Cricket Podcast

December 5th, 2021

THE TEN MINUTE FORTNIGHT: Listening to TalkSport's coverage of India vs New Zealand from a covid sickbed, and Tom Latham's remarkable innings.

"You often think that you have to reinvent yourself to do well in the subcontinent. Latham's great skill was to do less."

FROM THE ARCHIVES (8'30): Betty Wilson: the first test cricketer to score a century and take ten wickets in the same game

"Her father was a cobbler, so it was only natural that he should make her a pair of cricket shoes."

THE REVIEW (17'30): The Cricket Match by Hugh de Sélincourt

""'The seats bore the strain very well, awaiting without impatience the quiet, steady contract of elderly posteriors.' Whatever your views on flowery language, your tolerance has to be considerable to think that's an acceptable way to describe sitting on a bench."
