Red Inker is a Jarrod Kimber podcast, and it's not about the week in cricket. This is taking one topic in cricket, and getting an expert on to chat about it. It's a long look at some of the most interesting issues, players and stories with someone who's been writing or living it. Guests so far include Harsha Bhogle, Wright Thompson, Barney Ronay, Andy Balbirnie, Emma John, Melinda Farrell, Adam Collins, Geoff Lemon, Tymal Mills, Neil Manthorp, Sidharth Monga, Tabraiz Shamsi, Daniel Norcross ...
 
This is a podcast series on the history of cricket through the people and moments that made the game. Series two is a look at race in cricket via Basil D'Oliveira and a few other stories.

Double Century is a team effort. Our fact checkers are Abhishek Mukerjee (@ovshake42) and Bertie Moores (@MooresBertie). The Gwijo ...

It’s quite possible you have never owned a T20 team, but you are probably still fascinated by how that works. So I went and got an IPL owner to talk us through the entire thing. Manoj Badale owns the Rajasthan Royals, and so we talked about how you make a team from scratch, the logistics of running an organisation suspended for spot fixing, his mon…
 
This episode we talk about what happens when you go from the person everyone wants a piece of, to a voluntary twelfth man in county cricket told by the man who loved it. Abhinav Mukund’s career started the way legends do, and since then, it’s been a bizarre journey, from batting with Rahul Dravid in a test to 30 pounds a day to run drinks at Leices…
 
Batting at four in a T20 match is a horrible position, so I found someone who had batted pretty much everywhere in T20 cricket, but spent most of his time at that hell position. Brad Hodge was in the first T20 match, won the first title, and then played it up until a few years ago when he stated coaching and commentating on it. Here we talk about f…
 
This episode we talk to someone who has played two Tests, hit the winning runs in one of them, and would just like to play more. Shikha Pandey is an all-rounder for India who has represented her country over 100 times altogether and when I asked her what she wanted to talk about, she said “Why women should play test matches. 😍” So this episode is a…
 
This episode we talk about Barney Gibson who was the youngest man to play first class cricket in England. He played for Yorkshire at 15, and then at 19 he retired to run nightclubs. But we also discuss Mark Broadhurst, another young gun Yorkshire player who had an early end to his career and who spoke up after reading about Gibson. So I got on the …
 
This episode we have one of my favourite T20 players in the world to talk about his career so far. Colin Ingram has not had a straightforward career, at 23, he was without a pro contract and was thinking of going back to school to finish studying agriculture. But he stuck with cricket, and that seems to have gone pretty well. We chat about his ODI …
 
This episode we talk about fast bowling and accuracy, and how we see a lot more of both now. So I thought Steve Harmison might be able to help us with that. Fast bowlers have become more accurate and faster. We have 90 mile an hour bowlers with knuckle balls and wobble seams now. So this episode we talk bio mechanics, actions, preparation short ver…
 
This episode of Red Inker we look at the difficulties faced by Indian women cricketers. There is a book called The Fire Burns Blue all about this topic and so we got on author Karunya Keshav. We discuss players choosing marriage over a career, players choosing a career over marriage, and the few who have tried both. This is a story about women cric…
 
This episode is with Gareth Batty, who has been a professional cricketer in four different decades. I always say Batty is one of the most pro pros in cricket I have met. In this episode we talk about his family history in the game, Yorkshire spin, Brian Lara’s effect on him, how he tries to coach players, and how he’s kind of had everything English…
 
Trevor Madondo was Zimbabwe’s first black batsman, but sadly, his career - and life - were cut short. It’s an amazing story and so I got on a man who has just finished an incredible long read on it. Liam Brickhill and I discuss Zimbabwe cricket, races, politics, drinking, Dave Houghton and so much more as we discuss the unfinished life of Madondo. …
 
Helmets are still not worn uniformly by batsmen in cricket, and that seems odd with everything we know about concussions and the death of Phil Hughes. In this episode, Snehal Pradhan - the former Indian cricketer - comes on to talk about the need for batters to wear helmets even when facing spin. We chat about Sultan Zarawani, Bermuda batters, Bria…
 
In 2003 I had never left Australia before, and I planned a round the world trip that would end up in South Africa for the Cricket World Cup. It was a life changing trip for me, and I’ve never really written about it. But cricket podcast emperor Subash has heard me talk about it, and so he thought it would make a good podcast. We talk about watching…
 
We talk about selections in cricket a lot. I can’t think of another sport that seems so focused on them, and yet we talk about the process of how teams are elected so rarely. So I brought on my former colleague Mohammad Khan to talk through how he believes teams should be selected, taking from his knowledge as a Wall Street Trader and someone who w…
 
DRS has changed how umpires make decisions, how TV companies look at the game and how batsmen bat. But there is still so much about the system that even the commentators themselves don’t seem to understand. One of the best writers on this is Kartikeya Date who has spent years trying to get to the bottom of how the ball tracking companies have worke…
 
This episode is about English spinners. Since Graeme Swann retired, England have tried 12 spinners. Many are batsmen who bowl a bit. Recently Geoffrey Bunting wrote a piece about English spin, the treatment of Jack Leach, and the reality of how little England seems to understand about nurturing the craft. We talk Samit Patel, Dom Bess, Moeen Ali, G…
 
The common refrain from many cricket fans is that that associate teams are largely just Indian or Pakistani second XI’s. But in truth, modern sport is much more complicated than that. So this week we brought on Nishadh Rego from Emerging Cricket to talk about immigration in cricket, throughout history, and how it has changed and built cricket natio…
 
This episode of Red Inker is on one of cricket’s most remarkable spells by the man who bowled it, Aasif Karim. In 2003 I was backpacking around the World Cup, and we headed to Durban for the Kenya vs Australia match. We really didn’t expect much, as good as Kenya had been in the tournament, no one expected them to put up such of a fight against Aus…
 
This has been a spectacularly bad year for pretty much everything, but they still played cricket, just. So, we talked about the highs, lows and major news stories in the game with Vithushan Ehantharajah. We covered the Women’s World Cup, bubbles, administration, IPL, the Hundred and the vector of disease. - To support the podcast please go to our P…
 
This episode of Red Inker is where I get in a cricket podcast legend Subash Jayaraman to interview me. He wanted to talk about my love of Pankaj Singh, the Indian seamer. This is more than just Pankaj though, it’s about how we obsess over lovable losers. They guys who didn’t quite make it, they guys who did but left quick, the hard luck stories and…
 
This episode of Red Inker we talk about the incredible English summer of 2019, when Steve Smith and Ben Stokes erased all previous faux-pas by being really good at cricket. So I got in someone who wrote a book called The Comeback Summer about the entire thing, Geoff Lemon. We look at what fans and media think, how these stories and narratives are c…
 
This episode on Red Inker we’re talking about the greatest T20 franchise in the world, the Mumbai Indians. I got in one of those T20 number guys you hear so much about, Ben Jones. Like me, he’s worked for a few T20 teams around the world now, and is an expert in T20 trends, so both of us looked at why Mumbai is just so much better than every other …

We talk about patriotism, cricket governance, the beauty of Warne and Wa…

So I brought on Plunkett ultra Rory Dollard to talk about him. We discuss how Plunkettis kinda like a choose your own adventure cricketer, players from the north of England, how Plunkett had to fight bac…
 
This episode we focus on the last four years of cricket governance in South Africa. It’s sexier than it sounds, because a lot of weirdness has occurred. When Firdose Moonda wasn’t busy applying for cricket South Africa jobs and eating free sandwiches, she’s been as bemused, and angry, as anyone with what is happening with cricket in South Africa. T…

And Annesha Ghosh is the perfect pers…
