Around the World in 2 – a few occasional off-breaks

Each week for Mason & Guests I compile and broadcast a brief summary of cricket events outside the Caribbean, with a few “Did You Know, Andrew?” facts thrown in. Here’s this week’s round-up:

“Two days of England’s tour match v Australia A were completely washed out, after England had made 318-0 on the 1st day, with both Alastair Cook & Michael Carberry scoring not out 150s.
