In 2017 I drove a tuk tuk 3000km across India. Along the way I stopped and visited some friends and talked about cricket. While in Pune, I met up with Aman Misra and spoke pitches. Why does Australia bounce? Why does the subcontinent spin? Why does England seam and swing (baby yeah)? The answer is atmospheric, botanical, geological, and cultural. We take a look at both the science and history of cricket pitches. Note: I am not a scientist! And apologies for the sound quality on this one, my studio was literally a backpack on a tuk tuk.
