    Harry Brook v South Africa - T20 World Cup Daily 20.1

    2024 T20 World Cup, Day 21.1: England v South Africa

    It was back to Group 2, for the unbeaten South Africans taking on the newly awakened English. Quinton de Kock was a coaled-up train, but the rest of his heavy hitters found it hard to ride along. Jofra Archer was bad, then great, then better. Harry Brook and Liam Livingstone had the game in their hands, but the breeze kept ruffling those palms. A game down to the line in St Lucia, with Matt Roller and Geoff Lemon.

    Patrick hat-trick - T20 World Cup Daily 20.2

    2024 T20 World Cup, Day 20.2, Super 8s, Australia v Bangladesh

    Bangladesh scraped into the second stage of this tournament after a poor group stage, and had an opportunity to show that they could lift to the next level in Antigua. They didn't do it. Australia, meanwhile, produced one of the most quintessential Australia performances you can imagine. At least we saw a big snail. Henry Moeran joins Geoff Lemon.

    SKY goes blue - T20 World Cup Daily 20.1

    2024 T20 World Cup, Day 20.1: India v Afghanistan

    Not everything is going easily for India. Rohit and Kohli are having their troubles at the top. Dube isn’t making an impression. But with Rishabh Pant and Suryakumar Yadav in your side, there is always some fun to be had, and that’s before Jasprit Bumrah comes on. Afghanistan, meanwhile, brought back a heavy hitter in Hazratullah Zazai, but they don’t have long to get their heads back in the game.

    Bairstow is annoyed - T20 World Cup Daily 19.2

    2024 T20 World Cup, Day 19.2: West Indies v England

    After England scraped through the group stage and West Indies battered Afghanistan on the same ground two nights prior, the stage was set for some heavy hitting on the first day of the Super 8s. But some parts were not as heavy as anticipated, and the biggest influence might have been down to the spinners like Akeal Hosein and Adil Rashid, before Phil Salt and Jonny Bairstow took the spotlight. Matt Roller joins Geoff Lemon in St Lucia.

    Respect the USA - T20 World Cup Daily 19.1

    T20 World Cup Daily, 2024, Day 19.1: South Africa v USA

    The Americans are the story of this tournament. And sure, they weren't good enough to get over the Proteas at Antigua to begin this Super 8s stage, but they came ever so close, showing again why they really do belong at this level. Bharat Sundaresan was at the game and he's with Adam Collins.

    A night for muscles - T20 World Cup Daily 18

    T20 World Cup Daily, 2024, Day 18: West Indies v Afghanistan

    It was all about the flexing in the final group game in St Lucia, as West Indies' top order created mayhem through the first six overs, Nicholas Pooran did more at the end, and Gulbadin Naib tried to match them with his wardrobe choices. A high-octane night in front of a sensationally animated crowd.

    Climate change will keep hurting our game

    Season 16, Episode 20: The research is clear: the effects of the climate emergency on cricket will be significant and the horrible floods and storms in Florida last week, ruining three World Cup games in the process, is but one example. It's not a fun topic but one that demands ongoing attention. In happier news, how does Scotland go about making the next step to Full Member status? We take a closer look. Our focus on associate cricket in Europe is a theme we return to, from Italy with Joe Burns' ton to the fastest T20i ton ever in Estonia's win over Cyprus.

    Ferguson's perfect game - T20 World Cup Daily 17

    T20 World Cup Daily, 2024, Day 17: New Zealand v Papua New Guinea, Netherlands v Sri Lanka

    Baseball has the shut-out. Ten-pin bowling has the perfect game. Cricket never really has, but perhaps that will change. Far more rare than a hat-trick was Lockie Ferguson's world record feat, as Trent Boult announced his NZ retirement. In the double-header the night before, Nepal once again nearly pulled off a shock that would have left the Dutch with a path to the next stage.

    T20 World Cup Daily: 2024, Day 16

    T20 World Cup Daily, 2024, Day 16: Pakistan v Ireland; Australia v Scotland

    A shocker of a game ends the Group A adventure, Pakistan doing marginally less worse with the bat than Ireland to take the points in Florida. Far more interesting was the stoush last night in St Lucia where Scotland couldn’t quite get the job done against Australia, desperately unlucky to be going home having so nearly topped their group. Adam has Daniel Norcross with him and they’re both pretty grumpy.

    T20 World Cup Daily: 2024, Day 15.2

    T20 World Cup Daily, 2024, Day 15.2: England v Namibia, Uganda v NZ

    The rain came, the rain stayed, but with little time to spare the rain eventually left. England's campaign was not washed out, they had the chance to decide it themselves with an 11-over match that soon became 10. Meanwhile, Uganda's triumph in making it to this tournament came to its end against a similarly homeward bound New Zealand.

    T20 World Cup Daily: 2024, Day 15.1

    T20 World Cup Daily, 2024, Day 15.1: India v Canada, Nepal v South Africa

    More rain in Florida washed out another game, the flood mixing with the tears of TV broadcasters at losing an India match. But while it was lower billing, the Nepal and South Africa game from the night before ended up with the best finish of the tournament. Cameron Ponsonby and Daniel Norcross report from Miami.
