Sky Cricket Podcast: Sir Ian Botham on Wahab Riaz and Yasir Shah
Hear from Beefy, Mikey Holding and Moeen Ali after day one
Last Updated: 11/08/16 10:31pm
Sir Ian Botham was a happy man after England recovered from a wobble to score 328 at The Oval - sort of!
Beefy's mood may have been dented mildly by the fact he just missed out on winning the Sky Cricket commentators' sweepstake, having predicted the hosts would score 321!
But he was happy enough to chat on the Sky Cricket Podcast - which you can download here - about Wahab Riaz's front foot, Yasir Shah's slump in form and Sami Aslam's late dismissal.
Mikey Holding, meanwhile, insists he would still have bowled first at The Oval, pinpointing how Pakistan's sloppiness in the field prevented them from knocking England over for under 200.
Yet, he also found time to hail Moeen Ali - "batting at No 7 he can make most bowling line-ups look pretty ordinary" - after the England left-hander struck an excellent 108.
For all that, plus the views of Moeen on his third Test century and reaching the milestone with a six off Yasir, download the Sky Cricket Podcast.
