- why Bumble owes his cricketing career to one Windies legend in particular who got him into the game as a lad at Accrington
- what it was like to play against "the greatest cricketer of all time" Sir Garfield Sobers - and why he is now the 'Yoda' of golf

Plus, the duo look ahead to the concluding match in the ODI series and analyse the current state of West Indies cricket as well as the areas where England can improve.
Also, find out why Bumble decided to play the famous Green Monkey golf course dressed as a 'sherbert' and who came out in the battle of the Sky Sports commentary team.
