The One Short Podcast – Episode 9: England’s World Cup Troubles | Interview with Nick Friend


Nick Friend, from The Cricketer, joins Toby and Aayush to discuss what has gone wrong at the Cricket World Cup for England.

We touch upon the lack of a conducive schedule before the World Cup, their new ball bowling struggles and the fact that all of England’s batters seem to be out of form at the same time, as well as looking forward to the next cycle and what England can improve.
