Call in to speak with the host
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.
Jall Vittles regularly guests - he is a cricket writer for "DEPP EXTRA COVER" AND "CRICKET WORLD".
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.
West Indies (and Florida USA) Cricket administrator Ivor Henry is an occasional guest with his knowledge of USA/ W.I Cricket.
Ben's Cricket Archive of Audio and readings of rare books will feature. Thousands of hours of footage unavailable elsewhere will feature.
Current affairs, stats and the great history of cricket.
