In the wake of our dear global pandemic, we’ve decided to fast-forward the release of our Blue Carpet special – an episode commemorating a docuseries many of us now have the time to watch: The Test, from Amazon.
We “run the rule” (what does this mean?) over the series from a Parramatta carpark, highlighting its key questions: is it PR? Is it glorified club cricket? Did Justin Langer say it, or David Brent? The answers, as ever, may or may not surprise you.
Pez then catches up with docuseries Director Adrian Brown in CA Towers, before we head to the Blue Carpet at the SCG premiere, where among other things, we learn about JLs views on botox and champing, Tim Paine conducting a grade cricket coin toss in his Test blazer, Adam Zampa’s new mantra, collagen masks and optimum circuit results, before Pat Cummins asks us “how do you blokes have jobs?”
AskTGC rounds us out with questions about hating cricket, adultery, a horse called “Champ” at Cheltenham, and Trobrian Cricket: An Ingenious Response to Colonialism (also on Amazon Prime).
Look after yourselves, and lay low if you're able.
