On this week's Cricket Writers on TV podcast, the panel review England's sensational Champions Trophy win over Australia at Edgbaston to send Steve Smith's side out of the tournament.

Derek Pringle, Stephen Brenkley and Neil Manthorpe joined Paul Allott to delve behind the best headlines in the Sunday newspapers, with most focusing on Ben Stokes' starring century in England's win.

Allott says Stokes reminds him of Sir Ian Botham in the sense that "he is never beaten", while Pringle calls the Durham all-rounder Botham's '"truest heir".

Also up for discussion is Eoin Morgan's influence on the England team, the improved displays by the bowling attack, and whether Jason Roy should be dropped for the semi-finals.

The panel also debate whether AB de Villiers' position as South Africa skipper is under pressure, whether Cardiff is deserving of being an international venue, the planned redevelopments of both Lord's and The Oval, as well as the merits of a Test cricket world championship.

Cricket Writers on TV continues throughout the summer, on Sky Sports every Sunday for 14 weeks until the end of August.
