I try and give voice to the fans’ emotions

In the latest episode of the 81allout podcast, we are delighted to be joined by ESPNcricinfo’s Sri Lanka correspondent Andrew Fidel Fernando.

We talk about Fidel’s experiences of covering Sri Lankan cricket and discuss the various aspects of putting together a piece on deadline. Fidel talks about what was going through his head when Kusal Perera was rewriting the history books in Durban, and the manner in which he ‘joined the dots’ after Sri Lanka’s scarcely believable Test series win in Port Elizabeth.

Also featuring: Sandpaper-gate, Rangana Herath, Sri Lankan cricket administration, and much more…
