The Sledge: 2012/2013 Episode 12 Finale
You can download a podcast of this episode from this link.
Who: Nick Hancock, Jonathan Howcroft, David Siddall, Ryan Thomas.
What: The Sledge’s finale tackles a gigantic array of topics. The team discuss the Big Bash League’s Big Final, and ruminate on the different areas and levels of “success” such a tournament can be marked on, rummages through the rotation policy gobbledegook to decisively analyse the merits of swapping players, and delve into the ethics of press relations.
Dave gets a message from his brother, Ryan sledges one of our sledgemailers, and Jono is decieved into quoting Tino Best.
The Sledge goes on location at the Harmony in Cricket Clinic at Monash University, run in conjunction with the Young Cricketers Development Program. Jono talks to Vernon Tissera and Johann Jayasinhe about the Young Cricketers program, why they started it and what it does; speaks to Rohan O’Neill, Cricket Victoria’s Game Development Manager, about the Victorian Bushrangers Pathway Program, and where the next generation of Victorian cricketers are coming from; and chats to Kumar Sangakkara, reigning ICC Cricketer of the Year and Sri Lankan legend, about cricket’s ability to build communities.
“Thirteen episodes. No make-up. No production values. Just cricket.”
