This podcast was recorded on Sunday, after the first two matches of the current World Cup. The post production made it slightly dated, especially the England optimism part, if you consider the assault launched by Ryan Ten Doeschate today.
This World Cup special edition of The Big Show Podcast touches on topics that are subjects of mild amusement or heated debates for cricket fans across the globe. You can listen to it in 3 parts, with the brief on each section appended above the player. Do listen to them, and let us know you feedback!
Excuse the break in transmission from the 9:30 minute mark to the 11:30 minute mark. Our wonderful 1 GB RAMs could not handle the goodness of our cricket analysis. For what is a world cup without the customary: rukawat ke liye khed hain ?
In this part, KC and Sehgal focus on the cricket happenings that are causing pundits to look in the crystal ball for ODI futures. They ponder what the new format means for 2011 and why associate chopping has been taken on for 2015. KC argues the case for Piyush Chawla and the podcasters are in disagreement over Sreesanth being picked ahead of him. Both are tickled to the same extent by the newest Sehwagism.
Mirror players and splitting images are brought up with equations like VVS:Azhar::DarrenBravo:BrianLara::IanBell:MikeAtherton thrown in for good measure as also picks for semis and a touch of strategy.
The Arsenal-Barca wonder game made KC and Sehgal recall the purest matches/rivalries they’ve ever seen (final picks, not this, this, this, this, or this). Podcast ends with what stands out from their memory of ’96 WC, a cause for much nostalgia amongst columnists.
