Graham Gooch on Phil Tufnell, plus India v England 1992/93

The 80s and 90s Cricket Show

Nov 9 2020 • 1 hr 25 mins

Former England captain Graham Gooch joins Gary Naylor, Peter Hayter and Pat Murphy to discuss the career of Phil Tufnell, a left-arm spinner who received his first Test cap under Gooch and who then found himself in and out of both trouble and the England team throughout the nineties. As you’d expect, there are plenty of behind the scenes tales of high jinks and misdemeanours. Then they dissect England’s disastrous tour of India in 1992/93, with reflections from the skipper on the decision to leave David Gower at home (and the subsequent outcry), dodgy prawns, baffling selections and backfiring PR stunts. The 80s and 90s Cricket Show is sponsored by Anderton Law. Get involved on Twitter (@CricShow80s90s).
