Join Cricket Enthusiast Ben Manning for a weekly show that covers all aspects of world cricket... from the england team to the west indies and from somerset's county team to the future of international test cricket itself.

Manning was professionally coached as a child until a back accident meant he could not persue the game, however - he has commentated (as a collector and devotee of the game) with the BBC and for Somerset county cricket club's radio commentary - some of which can be found on youtube.  The Murali Kartik incident in 2012 achieved 13,000 listens on youtube.  His proudest moment was to be coached by Norman Cowans and the late Wilf Slack (England cricketers of the early eighties ) as a child, but as an adult his proudest moment was when he attended the memorial service of the late Christopher Martin Jenkins - "CMJ" - at St Pauls Cathedral in 2013.  

Occasionally Jullian Cattanach will join the show. Cattanach is a former Somerset county cricket club commentator and also is P.A announcer at the county ground, Taunton.  He is a Somerset Cricket legend.  

Prestigious Gusts will feature - amongst them Ivor Henry (West Indian South Florida Cricket Administrator)  

Phone the show to discuss the game's current affairs, stats and to discuss the great history of cricket.

Ben is also an actor and writer.
