Ep. 118: The Boys Are Back in Town
The Edges & Sledes gang goes back to its roots. With no guests on this episode, it’s no holds barred!
We start with an update on what’s been happening with us since Lockdown started. We talk a little about our favourite guests on the podcast, what we have missed/not missed about the show and also call out a couple of other podcasts (TPSE, Lessons Learnt and Cricket Zone). On a more sombre note, we discuss the Darren Sammy racism issue and the untimely passing of Sushant Singh Rajput.
The second half is absolute mayhem when all of us of them pick our IPL GOAT XI with a limit of four overseas players. -Why is there no Universe Boss in Varun’s team? -Why does Ashwin pick Rohit Sharma and has Suresh Raina ever batted at 5? -Why are the Pandya brothers even being spoken of by DJ in the same breath as Russell and Dhoni? And why is there no MS Dhoni in DJ’s team?
Things get heated and the banter is non-stop! Write in with your comments/objections/rants and let us know what you think of the idea of a live IPL draft.
