Edges & Sledges (Episode 5): SandpaperGate and IPL 2018 Fantasy Cricket Preview

With four days to go to IPL 2018, episode 5 of our weekly live cricket show “Edges & Sledges” is now online!

If you missed it live, you can watch the whole episode here on YouTube or if you like your cricket in podcast form you can listen to it on iTunes, Anchor or PocketCasts for Android. This week we cover:

  1. The aftermath of the ball tampering scandal and our views on the punishments handed out to Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft by Cricket Australia.
  2. The top players across all eight teams in the Indian Premier League – we discuss who we think will be key players in 2018’s re-jigged IPL teams and which team we think we will win the trophy. We also set out below a fuller list of the key players for your fantasy cricket teams.

Next Sunday (8 April), we will be live on Facebook again at 7:30 pm India Standard Time (i.e., in the innings break between the IPL double-header). Two matches of the IPL will have taken place by then and we will (technology-willing!) ask two fans of the returning Chennai SuperKings to join us on the show. We hope to speak to fans of all eight teams across the eight week IPL to get their views on their team’s chances and progress.

If you are an IPL fan and have something to say, leave us a comment. Remember to like our Facebook Page and subscribe to our podcast, YouTube Channel and email updates.

In the meantime, keep reading, watching and listening!
