England World Cup winner Mark Wood joins James Buttler on this edition of the Cricket Badger Podcast. The Durham and England fast bowler talks about his career in cricket and that incredible day at Lord’s on 14 July 2019.
Woody also chats about his imaginary horse, his batting, a prank he played on Keaton Jennings, getting back into training after the Covid-19 layoff, his desire to get a lengthy period of sound fitness and how he’d have been happy with just one England cap. Now with a combined 74 England appearances and a World Cup win that can never been taken away, Mark is not done yet. It’s a great pleasure to welcome him to the Podcast and hear him take on the Cricket Badger 20 Questions.
Later in the Podcast we also catch up with Matthew Jackson from the Sporta Group. In times of Coronavirus travel companies have not had a lot to do, but Matthew has some trips for cricket clubs in October/November to Spain and has an app that clubs might find extremely useful. The Slate App allows captains/clubs to collect subs at a touch of a button and avoids close contact and cash when clubs are able to take the field again.
