Ep. 93: India fight back to take Australia ODIs (feat. Melinda Farrell)
It was an exciting week as India bounced back from a 10 wicket thrashing at Wankhede on Tuesday to level the series at Rajkot on Friday and then beat Australia in the Bengaluru decider on Sunday to take the bilateral ODI series 2-1.
In the first half of the show, Varun, Ashwin and DJ discuss Kohli's batting position, his battle with Zampa, KL Rahul's versatility, Shami's superb yorkers, Kuldeep's guile, Bumrah's comeback and MS Dhoni being left out of the BCCI contract list.
The second half is an interview with Australian cricket journalist, Melinda Farrell. Mel relives her journey to cricket journalism, gives us her thoughts on the India-Australia rivalry, Kohli winning the ICC spirit of cricket award and whether Australia has moved on from Sandpaper-gate. She also talks about her favourite pieces of cricket writing.
