England's one day cricketers are struggling to get going under their new captain Jos Buttler. After suffering a series defeat to India over the weekend, they were soundly beaten in their opening ODI against South Africa on Tuesday too.

To make matters worse, test captain Ben Stokes announced on Monday that he will be stepping away from 50 over cricket, citing that his body can no longer cope with all three formats of the game.

Ben, Michael and Phil discuss Stokes decision and in particular his parting statement which seemed to take aim at those who run the game. We also hear from former India head coach Ravi Shastri, who tells us that he fears for the future of test cricket if something is not done to safeguard players.

Our guest this week is one of the finest fast bowlers to ever play the game, former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram joins the show to give us his take on Stokes retirement, discuss his own glittering career and his love for Lancashire

And we look back on a thrilling finish to the Vitality Blast final too!
