Pakistan v Australia, plus the state of Abu Dhabi cricket

Oct 15, 2018, 05:08 AM

After a thrilling fist Test ended in a draw last week in Dubai, Pakistan and Australia meet this week in Abu Dhabi for a second Test with the trophy on the line. We discuss the challenges facing both sides in this week's episode of The Cricket Pod.

We also have an extensive interview with Matt Boucher, the acting chief executive of Abu Dhabi Cricket, who joins us in the studio to talk about the accomplishments of Abu Dhabi Cricket over the past 18 months.

Boucher is cautiously optimistic of what his organisation is capable of achieving in the not-too-distant future, but he is confident that Abu Dhabi is growing in importance as a cricketing destination for the world's best teams and competitions.
