    228. Scarified, with Steve O'Keefe

    Steve O'Keefe steps into the guest co-host chair this week as we bring you a special show, in-person, from North Sydney Oval. Are the Scorchers too good and too scary? What is a spin camp and what is a scarified deck (and how do you say it?). England can't play white ball cricket anymore, Mott Ball is a myth and sounds a bit like an Irishman saying Moth Ball, India and New Zealand are doing highly memorable white ball stuff too, Dane van Niekerk suffers at the hands of South African self-sabotage, AskTGC concerns milking linguistics, group sex with a peripheral England cricketer, and being appalled with both your cricketing and sexual technique after reviewing it on video. TGC is a nude bat at present.

    The cricket industrial complex rolls on mercilessly, dragging our tired minds and eyes with it, so it's a BUMPER show this week. Higgos takes an overdue breather, so Pez steps in with guest co-host Ed "Ted" Cowan. The Aussie women annihilate Pakistan, Ash Gardner speaks up about Australia Day, Smith's doing savant stuff, Dan Christian and Steve Eskinazi join the show, Cricket NSW is a DISGRACE according to reports, Shubman Gill goes white ball daddy, David Cameron watches Alex Hales tonne up at the Sheikh Zayed, Root does something in South Africa, Bored Apes hack RCB Twitter, West Indies cricket may cease to exist as an entity, AskTGC ponders whether or not WinViz is “nonce gear”, and Michael Clarke limps his way into a story that not even a Chat GPT, super robot could produce for the Daily Mail. We have only ever been able to cover the bizarre breadth of this strange, strange game with the support of one of Australia's best fledgling brands – Budgy Smuggler. But this show is a fond farewell to that friend. After five years of sterling support, Budgy Smuggler and TGC bids farewell to one another. We catch up with CEO Adam Linforth to express our thanks properly, and to celebrate our fruitful association, Linny is throwing 20% off the entire range of Budgy Smuggler to the end of the month if you simply enter the code “RIG”.

    A drab draw closes out the Test summer, and we're asking: what the fuck was that? Sure Australia destroyed all-comers, passing records and milestones with frightening ease - but why couldn't they deliver this specific thing exactly as we wanted it? And why did Cummins declare on Khawaja? The reason will shock you (he wanted to win). Elsewhere, there's a bit of money knocking about for the TV rights, but not as much as last time, and apparently CA and 7 are - in executive parlance - “all good”. The BBL is trending up for the first time in years, helped by contentious catches, Mankads, and Chris Lynn topping the charts. But he's gone to some other league now. Normal. Pakistan and New Zealand play a riveting Test match before the umpires decided, “nah, can't have that”, and SKY equals the Czech Republic's Sabawoon Divizi's 3 T20i tonnes v Sri Lanka. Congratulations, SKY. #AskTGC is about taking women on dates to an indoor cricket centre, and, frankly, drinking problems. Budgy has both us and you covered wherever you are the world.

What does this mean for the SCG? Can we get a new toy to fuck around with? Something new for the eyes would be nice. Alex Malcolm is in studio to give us some actual analytics and analysis of what cricketers and high performers do. That's before we get into glory holes and how to improve the Big Bash. Matt Short joins us from Adelaide before training to tell us about Rashid Khan's sledging. Pakistan and New Zealand are both batting forever in Karachi. The IPL auction also gets a run, because money is all that matters and it's the biggest flex the IPL and BCCI can give.

    It was absolute boot-filling stuff against the West Indies, but now it's 1 vs 2 in the WTC table against South Africa. Brisbane is sold out, then it's Christmas and then it's New Year. David Warner's leadership ban remains, in yet another ugly chapter in the whole, sad debacle. The Big Bash starts today. Is that good? Maybe it's good. Daniel Brettig joins us in studio to discuss Mike Baird becoming the new Chair of Cricket Australia. What does that mean for the average internet user? Ali Martin joins us on a dodgy internet connection from Pakistan (or maybe that was Melbourne's fault) to tell us how amazing this 2-0 series lead has been. Jimmy Anderson is good, Stokes is good, Harry Brook is generational.... but what does it mean for the real series against 'out boys'? The Australia women lose their first match this year, so we completely disown them, as should Indian fans of their team, after yet another series loss in 2022.

    “Forget the scorecard,” advises Viru. Well, we can't. Marnus tripled, Smudge doubled red, Gareth took six and Australia (essentially) cantered. It's all we asked for, but is it enough? Of course not. So fresh, raw meat is mooted in Adelaide, in the form Lance Morris – all sunken eyes, Dieter Brummer salad – because we demand more. Or maybe it doesn't matter, because Cummins took a knee. No wonder he did he quad. In Rawalpindi, the To and Froms are legitimately revolutionising the game, but will naivety cost them? And is it Test Championship 2's? Private Equity wants The Hundred, but Thommo won't get out of bed unless there a couple bil. Bangladesh knock over India in dramatic circumstances in some game or other, our women head to India next week, and AskTGC traverses LBW noncery via an inquisitive little cherub, as well as a two-piecer monstrosity from some wine bin stuff in South Australia.  Budgy has both us and you covered wherever you are the world.

    Isn't it beautiful when blokes just care? Once again our golden generation bails us out of cricketing dystopia in ways “everyday” Australians understand. Forget our systemic sleepwalk into decline, what we really want to know is: who is the alpha? The answer is neither Cummins nor JL, and may surprise you. Elsewhere, blokes continue the eternal quest for social capital, but this time they're thieving real capital (allegedly), according to Victoria Police. In the old days, focused work on the chest and triceps would do the trick. Nowadays you apparently need bulk sheets to be loved. Separately, Chris Gayle made 95 red in some wheelie bin shit in Dandenong. The PMs XI played, numbers were ascribed to names, and we refuse to know anything about the West Indies. The Strikers are WBBL champions after the Sixers crumbled, begging the question: was there simply too much sun? At least the Sixers still engender safety - the NSW men are weaker than ever and we argue the nation should be concerned. Other countries are playing some cricket, too, and they're given due respect on this show (about 90 seconds), before the show eventually gives way to material that matters: what strategies exist for minors in team tubs when there's a bloke called “Felly”?

    We start this week with a full dissection of a run out at the non-striker's end in sub-district cricket in Melbourne. Australia have won an ODI series against Drunk England 3s, but is the team winning HARD enough? Steve Smith has found his hands again, though not the captain's armband. Dave Warner's leadership ban is set to be lifted and the WBBL is getting into the business end, but do we like the helmets? Suryakumar Yadav is doing some absolutely wild stuff in New Zealand, not that Virat Kohli saw it. Glenn Maxwell is on the show to tell us about how he broke his leg and what he's been watching on TV since the incident.
