Sporting Life has launched a brand new podcast – This Cricket Life – in partnership with Yorkshire Country Cricket Club.

Is it FREE to download and listen to via iTunes, Spotify and Soundcloud.

As the name suggests, the podcast discusses every area of the game of cricket from domestic issues to England, international news and the IPL.

For episode one, recorded at Headingley, batting coach and former Essex head coach and England batsman Paul Grayson, along with spinner, former Warwickshire player, Josh Poysden team up with host Gareth Jones and Sporting Life’s Cricket reporter Richard Mann.

The team discuss the start to the County Championship and analyse why the batsman across the country have faired so well so far, following a generally disappointing 2018 with the bat at domestic level across the Championship.

We look at early Ashes contenders, including Nottinghamshire’s Joe Clarke, Hampshire’s Sam Northeast, Gary Ballance of Yorkshire and Warwickshire’s Dom Silbey.

We debate the Australian World Cup squad and the reaction David Warner and Steve Smith will receive in England this summer.

And in our section ‘Top Three’, Paul and Josh share the best bowlers they’ve ever played with or against.

You can send us your favourite / best three bowler suggestions and general comments to our discussion points via twitter @sportinglife
