In the latest episode of the 81allout podcast, we are thrilled to be joined by podcaster and blogger Subash Jayaraman, as well as Kartikeya Date, a contributor for ESPNcricinfo, The Hindu and other publications.
We talk about Andre Russell’s 13-ball 48 for Kolkata Knight Riders against Royal Challengers Bangalore, and debate whether it was an “astonishing” innings or one that should have come as no surprise. Have we even learnt how to judge a T20 innings? Do we have the grammar and metrics to judge a T20 performance without veering into hyperbole? Will the “quality” of bowling eventually cease to matter in a format so heavily skewed in favour of the bat. Questions, questions, questions….
