Does cricket have a sexism problem? Yes. Yes it does. With the help of ESPN Cricinfo’s SA correspondent Firdose Moonda, Dan tackles a major problem that is inherent in the game and alienates female journalist and broadcasters.
He then gets technical with former Protea batsman and coach Neil McKenzie to unpack the best strategy when facing spin on the subcontinent.
Dan chats to one of the best minds in the game – the Sri Lankan journalist Fidel Fernando to unpack the strengths and weaknesses of the Proteas’ hosts for the next few weeks.
He also wades into one of the most important (but sadly underreported) scandals in cricket right now and discovers that he hasn’t done enough to eradicate a centuries-old problem ingrained within the sport.
What the hell Cricket?! Dan goes away for two weeks and you start behaving like this? Are you drunk? What has happened to you?
To help wade through the mess that has become this enthralling series between South Africa and Australia, Dan has called on Aussie Geoff Lemon and Saffa Telford Vice to unpack the latest talking points around the ball tampering fiasco.
Amongst all the speculations, frustrations and resentment there is a very good series on the go so don’t worry, we get to the actual cricket too.
We’ll be talking about this series for a long time. Stay in the loop by engaging with the pod and with Niche Radio.
In the latest pod Dan chats to Proteas openers Dean Elgar to see what shape he’s in after the epic he played in the last Test at the Wanderers. He also shares his thoughts on his ODI aspirations, the public’s perception of him and how he’s preparing for the Australians next month.
Dan also unpacks the first three ODIs against India and offers a solution to the middle order’s woes against spin.
Dan is back after indulging way too much over the festive period so he’s called in some help to kick off 2018 in style.
There are few better cricket brains in the country than Telford Vice and it doesn’t hurt that he’s also a fantastic human. Dan rung him up to get the lowdown on the first Test against India, what to expect from the Newlands pitch and how menacing the South African attack really is.
