0 Cricket Badger Podcast – Gary Barwell, the groundsman strikes back

James Buttler, the Cricket Badger, is joined by Gary Barwell, the Head Groundsman at Edgbaston Stadium to fight back against criticism of pitches during the 2019 Cricket World Cup. The barb that stung the most was from Mark Butcher on Twitter which read "Sorry, but pitches have been garbage this tournament."

A classic Twitter row ensued, of which you can view the full fiery exchange below.

Other points of conversation include: the job, the pride at turning out a belting wicket and the hard work the ground staff around the country put in. On this podcast, Gary fights back in defence of the unsung cricketing heroes across the nation.
