Shane Warne & Hampshire Cricket

On the first anniversary since we lost Shane Warne, local broadcaster Robbie James has released a heartfelt podcast about how a bumbling provincial county cricket team on the verge of insolvency was able to attract arguably the best test match bowler there has ever been.

Robbie is a friend of Broadhalfpenny Down, and volunteered to be the guest announcer for the 250th Anniversary of the First Class cricket match where he spent the afternoon on the pavilion balcony, microphone in hand, chatting all things sport with Neil Wood, Laura Northwood, Gladstone Small, and Jack Russell!
