Audio - The Slog Sweep, Ireland's Weekly Cricket Show - Episode One

Listen to the first episode of The Slog Sweep, an all-new weekly cricket podcast dedicated to Irish cricket, this week featuring Ireland vice-captain Kevin O'Brien.

The show, scheduled for an initial run of 22 episodes, is presented by Mark Robinson and Andrew Leonard, also including contributions from Barry Chambers and Ger Siggins as well as many interesting features.

These include a focus on Irish club cricket, team and performance of the week, news, interviews and much more.

There is also an accompanying 60-second 'Mythbusters' segment each week, which deals with some of the game's more interesting rules, which you can listen to below.

The podcasts air with the support of Johnston, Mooney and O'Brien, Ireland's oldest bakery and sponsors of Cricket Ireland.

"I am really delighted that we have managed to get this venture off the ground in time for a twenty-two week season long run," Heatley Tector, Director of The Slog Sweep, said.

"I would like to thank both Johnston, Mooney and O’Brien as well as O’Neills as their support is crucial in helping turn this concept into a reality.

"I am certain that the quality I have with my team in Oceanblue Productions coupled with the wonderful pairing of Mark Robinson and Andrew Leonard as presenters will help to make the show a great success."
