The plan was to start a podcast to recreate cricketing discussions outside a tea-shop. We felt serious cricket outlets often take themselves too seriously while the irreverent observers don't take cricket seriously enough. We wanted to find a middle ground, and we are thankful for your continued feedback. We would love to provide more varied content. The game is awash with stories. We want to explore them in depth. From late 2018 to early in 2021, this endeavour ran purely on passion. Around February 2021, we felt ready to take the next step. We thought of approaching advertisers. We contemplated bringing on a sponsor. We considered various other options. But none of those ideas inspired as much confidence as you. You understand how much the game means to us. We hope you can support us each month to help us reach the next level.  We look forward to you joining us in this journey.
