True hipsters that we are, we’ve decided to do a series of cricket shows AFTER the CWC19 is over. Some might call us late, but we say there’s benefit in being late (like in Lara’s batting technique, for instance). Anyway, the Simblified gang look through the World Cup editions 1975 to 1992, each of which were different, a microcosm of the changing times around them. From the quiet, polite, sparse crowds of England 1975 to raucous middle-class noise of Subcontinent 1987. From the low-scoring matches of old to pinch-hitting techniques. We look at it all and make some bad jokes along the way.

Notes:

  • I learned about Krish Srikanth’s aborted honeymoon
  • Also Naren’s Joel Garner anecdote about everything not being in proportion
  • Plus an explanation that the 1992 World Cup semi-final with South Africa was not even a Duckworth Lewis greatest hit
