With the Ashes about to get underway, Macquarie Sports Radio is launching The Cricket Show: Ashes Edition, offering the best analysis, opinions and talkback with one of the game’s greats, Ian Chappell.
The former Australian Test captain will join co-host Julian King and chart Australia’s defence of the iconic urn and their attempt to knock off The Old Enemy by winning the series on English soil for the first time since 2001.
Hear the latest news from both camps, sharpen your cricketing mind with analysis and insights from the game’s leading experts, and have your say via the open line – 13 12 83.
Following the announcement of the Australia Ashes squad tonight, Chappell’s first guest will be former England fast bowler and now talkSPORT UK radio host Darren Gough.
MML chief executive officer, Adam Lang said: “Macquarie Sports Radio has already developed a reputation as the home of the best radio cricket commentary in Australia, through our coverage of the summer of cricket and the ICC World Cup.
“Now, we are pleased to have one of the most respected voices in Australian cricket sharing his views on Australia’s Ashes campaign every Saturday morning.
“This is very exciting for our team, our clients and our audience, which continues to grow.”
