TMS falling over themselves to kick Australia. this isn't journalism.

Aggers is right. Wider cricket fans do have long memories, particularly when the English media will happily criticise opposition players whilst ignoring their own players frailties. For example Ben Stokes who violently assaulted two people in the street, and received an OBE for his efforts. TMS should look in their own back yard every now and again. Why do Australian media outlets allow journalists like Mitchell to provide her opinions based on zero playing experience. We've got more than enough second rate journalists of our own without importing more.

I like this podcast. It's informative and gives me the lowdown on the day's play without devolving into opinionated hosts trying to outdo one another with silly little anecdotes. 👍

Curious at how even Test Match Special continue to laud this violent thug because he wears an England shirt, which appears to be more important than a violent assault on a member of the public which was recorded on CCTV. #kiwi

Smith's demons were cricket related, stokes wasn't.

weird line of questioning from Agnew to Smith. "you've exorcised some demons", "do you feel like you've put a few things behind you". Why not ask Stokes those exact same questions ? It's as if he didn't violently assault a person in the middle of the street bizarre

If 5 runs would've been awarded instead of 6, Stokes wouldn't have been on strike. It would have been Rashid.
