The Pavilion – Cricket Podcast.

International Cricket podcast hosted by Stephen Wallis. Listen in as I talk with Cricket stars from around the world.

Looking for a cricket podcast? “The Paddock and The Pavilion” covers both horse racing and cricketing stories of interest.

In The Pavilion I have been, via Zoom, to Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Pakistan, Scotland, Sri Lanka, The Netherlands, the UAE and of course England, in the search of inspiring stories.

From England’s Emma Marlow at the under 19 World Cup in South Africa to Nick Andrews at the over 70s Ashes down under.

Patrick Foster’s compelling story about gambling addiction and how he turned his life around, Michael Holding discusses his West Indian touring days to England, while Leena Aziz, the first Women’s commentator in Asia and International umpire Sue Redfern have all shared their stories on the show.

The Paddock and The Pavilion podcast is available on the Sport Social podcast network or via Apple podcasts, Amazon podcasts, Google or Spotify.

Join us every Sunday to hear inspiring stories from the world of cricket and horse racing, with sports stars from Newmarket and beyond.
