Every day, there are more and more cricket podcasts out there. Our list has something for everyone, whether you’re looking for something made by a big media company like Sky Sports or quirky podcasts made by comedians and cricket fans.
1. Stumps, Umps & Beer Pumps
It’s a great idea that focuses on the kind of cricket we all know and love: village cricket. It means that you don’t have to be a superstar cricketer to be on the show, and some of the guests are people you won’t see on any other global cricket outlet. It focuses on the volunteers and village cricketers who are the “salt of the earth” and keep the sport going for everyone.
2. Middle Please, Umpire
This podcast is hosted by England cricketer Mark Wood and comedian Miles Jupp. The two hosts are two of the funniest people you can think of. There are also a lot of really great guests. The most recent show with Jos Buttler was both funny and educational. This is a must-have for cricket fans.
3. The Rain Break
This is hosted by Matt Machan, who used to play cricket for Scotland. The podcast looks at “untold stories in the world of cricket,” and it really does give a great look at what it’s like to be a cricketer.
There are some good guests on the show, but Matt Machan and Jack Brooks talking is what makes some of the best episodes. Check out the most recent episode where Jim Troughton talks about England, being a leader, and coaching.
4. Wisden Cricket Weekly
Every cricket player has heard of Wisden. They’re not just about big books you can use as door stops, and Wisden Cricket Weekly is a podcast that has been going since 2017. Most UK-based cricket podcasts tend to focus on the England team. Wisden does a good job of focusing on cricket around the world, so if you like to keep up with India, Australia, and other big cricketing nations, this is the podcast for you.
Marcus Trescothick just came on the show to talk about the famous 2-1 series win in Sri Lanka in 2000. One of the reasons we love the show is that it gives us interesting looks at professional cricket like this.
5. The Final Word Cricket Podcast
The Final Word cricket podcast is not as well-known as some of the other podcasts out there, but it is a great way to keep up with Australian cricket. The podcast is called “your friendly guide to the world’s strangest sport” by hosts Geoff Lemon and Adam Collins.
This podcast doesn’t have as many guests as some others, but when it does, the episodes are usually very good. Jim Maxwell was in a 2020 Christmas special, and it’s a good one to listen to.
6. The Analyst Inside Cricket
Simon Hughes and The Cricketer Magazine are behind this podcast. It also has the thoughts and opinions of “The Analyst.” A recent podcast that really hit home was the one with Isa Guha. In it, she talked about her experiences as an Asian woman in cricket and as a cricket commentator.
As you might expect, The Analyst Inside Cricket is often more serious than funny, but there is still a lot of fun and comedy in it, as well as some big names. In a recent episode, Ian Bell was a guest.
7. Following On
Talk Sport makes this podcast. In the past few years, they’ve put a lot of work into cricket and gotten the rights to a lot of commentaries. They focus on “Watch-Along” episodes and have some great interviews with cricketing royalty and access to them as well. Jimmy Anderson, the best bowler for England, has been on episodes of “The Cricket Collective”.
8. The 80’s and 90’s Cricket Show
A chance to remember old times. The ’80s and ’90s cricket show is great for people who remember some of the big matches from that time or want to learn more about them. A lot of the cricket experts and TV stars of today were involved at the time, which means that the show had a great presentation. In recent top episodes, Nasser Hussain and Ian Botham are both shown.
We hope they make more podcasts because there isn’t much to learn from these ones. The host, Gary Naylor, does a great job of talking about these tests as if they were happening right now.
9. Cricket Unfiltered
This show might not be the best for English cricket fans, since it focuses a lot on Australian cricket (which makes sense, since the hosts are from Australia). Andrew Menczel, Paul Dennett, and Jelisa Apps will tell you what’s going on in Australia.
For an Australian cricket fan, it might seem like most podcasts are about cricket in the UK, but this podcast makes up for that.
10. Sky Sports Cricket Podcast
Most of us who like cricket love how Sky covers England. The punditry team is made up of a lot of interesting people. We can’t get enough. We still have time to watch “The Debate” on Sky Sports TV and listen to the Sky Sports Cricket Podcast after a long day of watching cricket.
Some of the shows are made up of pieces that were shown on TV, but the access to guests is amazing. You can change from Ben Stokes to Jos Buttler in a week. Even though most of the time they are short. Sky makes some great cricket content, and the most recent episode, “When Mikey and Ebony Spoke,” is a great example. This shows what happened after the amazing interviews with Michael Holding and Ebony Rainford-Brent about Black Lives Matter.
