In this episode of the show we speak with Mumbai Indians bowling coach and Sydney Thunder coach Shane Bond.
We take a look back at yet another championship season for Mumbai and the outstanding performances of the fast bowling unit, headlined by Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult. Reflecting on what was surely the strangest IPL season to date, Shane takes us behind the scenes and into the One Family that is the Mumbai Indians, from Jimmy Pamment, Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav's cake antics to the absolute care the owners and franchise has for its players and staff.
Before we wrap up the show, we look forward to the BBL (24:00), with Shane outlining the challenging build up, the growth of players like Daniel Sams and Chris Green, the signings of Adam Milne and Sam Billings, plus a few players to watch in the Sydney Thunder squad - including a young legspinner, much to Baldy's delight.
Quick note that the audio quality wasn't at it's best during this episode, but it's always great to chat with Shane, so hopefully it won't impact your listening experience too much.
