The Lord's Cricket Podcast

Stories from Lord's, the Home of Cricket, with the people who made them.

The Lord's Cricket Podcast, hosted by Will Roe, features one-on-one interviews with players who have lit up the Ground as they go down memory lane for some cricketing nostalgia.

Alongside their on-field stories the podcast also explores what makes them tick; from their childhood and early cricketing memories to the moments that have shaped their lives.



Episode 8; Nasser Hussain - a fairy tale farewell at Lord's

Former England captain Nasser Hussain remembers his 103 not out at Lord's in his final ever Test innings in 2004, as well as chatting about his childhood, dealing with the media, captaincy pressures and learning to love Lord's.

Episode 7: Graeme Fowler - Six pints and a century at Lord's

Graeme 'Foxy' Fowler sits down at his home in Durham and chats through his 106 vs the West Indies at Lord's in 1984, falling through Elton John's coffee table, being sacked by Lancashire, battling depression and life after cricket.

In an open and honest interview, former England bowler Graham Onions chats about his 5/38 against the West Indies at Lord's on Test debut, the Ashes summer of 2009, meeting popstar Lily Allen, battling against South Africa and the lowest point of his career - when overlooked by England after taking 70 wickets in a summer.

Episode 5: Allan Donald - 'White Lightning' strikes Lord's

In this two-part podcast, the legendary pace bowler Allan Donald chats about growing up in South Africa, playing for Warwickshire, a perfect return to Lord's in 1994 and an unpleasant falling out with his captain Keppler Wessels.

In part two of this podcast, Allan Donald talks politics and sport, meeting Nelson Mandela, the 1998 series in England - where he takes 5/32 at Lord's and THAT famous duel with Mike Atherton at Trent Bridge - and the life and tragic death of his close friend Hansie Cronje.
