Ep. 100: The Hundred
It’s another full house this week with Varun, Ashwin and DJ as we raise our bat after scoring our maiden ton (the only century scored during the New Zealand v India test series!). It’s also our second year anniversary episode so we get excited, emotional and also a little nostalgic in turn.
But there is work to be done so we discuss India’s disastrous 2-0 series loss against New Zealand (first series loss during the WTC). We go over the opportunities wasted by Indian batsmen in the first and second innings, poor use of the DRS and once again India’s inability to get the tail out hurting them in the final analysis.
We also rant a little more about India’s intent problem and its selection and team management issues with a focus on Ishant’s injury and swapping Ashwin for Jadeja. We then wrap the series with our thoughts on Kohli’s intense press conference where he snaps at the reporter asking him about swearing at Kane Williamson and the Kiwi crowd.
In the second half of the show we talk about our favourite century from childhood and the Women’s T20 World Cup where Team India has topped the group and will play the first semi final. Finally Ashwin hosts a quiz about centuries for Varun and DJ.
