Season 10, Ep 14: Like it, hate it, or ignore it, The Hundred is... hunderway? The stakes are high. The bills are high. So is the risk of a stumble. Henry Moeran has been watching more of the actual cricket than anyone, leading the BBC radio coverage. He joins The Final Word to talk through the possibilities and pitfalls of the ECB's big bet.
Also on the show this week: might England bail on the Ashes? Not likely but suggestions have begun. India's reserve team gets timed out by covid, so it's time for the reserve reserves - will Rahul Dravid have to strap on the pads? While Australia dodge their own covid brush in the Caribbean and board the plane for Bangladesh.
