Can't Bowl Can't Throw Cricket Show
Summary: The second season of the Can't Bowl Can't Throw Cricket Show, in which we talk about cricket on a podcast. In a second season.
When our regular top order segments collapse in a heap, we need somebody at the back end of the show to get us home. Luckily, we have Michael Bevan joining us to do just that. First, he consolidates with a Short Ball segment in which we discuss his phenomenal 185* (132) for a Rest of the World XI in 2000 and the art of batting (or podcasting) with tailenders. Then he rebuilds the episode by discussing his new Batting Mentor service (battingmentor.com). Finally, he brings us home in dramatic fashion with our 'Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grade Cricketer?' quiz, in which we play a quick game of 'Guess the New Michael Bevan'. Enjoy!

Cat and Dan are back talking all about the ridiculously good Border-Gavaskar series, as well as other recent cricket matters, including Mickey Arthur's OnlyFans page, Wes Agar on Baywatch and how we would sledge Sir Jimmy Anderson.

We're joined by Craig Dodson (@fromfineleg on Twitter) for the quiz, where we play a version of something that may or may not be Scattergories.

Halfway through the IPL season, Cat and Dan break down what's happened so far and make (some already invalidated) predictions about what will happen for the rest of the tournament. Also, the Sheffield Shield is back, and the Australian women's team are on their way to a hundred-match ODI winning streak. Plus: why was Ricky Ponting's men's team so lame?

What were the ten funniest moments of the recently completed England Test summer? Was it something to do with Stuart Broad (almost certainly)? Or Ben Stokes (also almost certainly)?

Those geniuses over in South Africa have bloody well cracked the code. They've created the greatest form of cricket there is - 3 Team Cricket, or 3TC for short. What is it? Who's playing it? How will it change your life for the infinitely better? Cat and Dan break it all down.
In the latest episode, Cat and Dan discuss the potential for fake saliva, muse over which Australian cricketer is most likely to exhibit hamster-like tendencies and admire the ongoing greatness of the Monty Channel.

In the latest episode of our podcast, we marvel at the number of cricket podcasts still in existence, steadfastly ignore the probable demise of The Hundred and try very hard to come up with other things for everybody to do while there's no cricket on.
In the latest episode of our podcast, we mix up our Perrys, play Family Feud and wonder whether a lack of cricket going forward might render this an abrupt season finale. Plus: We find sequels for 'The Test' on Amazon Prime, discuss record crowd numbers at both extremes and plug our other podcast about Alfred Hitchcock... just in case (hitchpodonline.com).
In the latest episode of Can't Bowl, Can't Throw, we discuss mankads and hat tricks, Donald Trump and Oliver Twist, Bradman in colour and Maxwell in love. There's also Test matches, The Hundred and, of course, the T20 World Cup. Plus: Cricket365 editor Dave Tickner tries to prove he's smarter than a fifth grade cricketer. Or, at the very least, smarter than Monty Panesar.
Is Ellyse Perry taller than David Warner? Of course she is. But we break down every other way of comparing the two in our quiz. Who has the longer name? Who has the better Test average? Who has bowled more to Sachin? All is revealed. Plus, The Hundred is sentient!
In this episode, Cat reminisces about the first time she saw Wasim Akram bowl, Dan investigates Mark Waugh's safe and special quiz guest Melinda Farrell uncovers all kinds of cricketing lies.
Like Darren Lehmann, we've been hacked. Which is all the excuse we need to name a Hacked XI. We also discuss Marnus Labuschagne's goal to bring up a century of penalty runs, talk tongue twisters with Megan Maurice, examine the Melbourne Stars' go-kart racing prowess. And, eventually, talk about cricket.
