Oct 16, 2019, 11:25 AM
Former Indian cricketer Deep Dasgupta and sports journalist/broadcaster Chetan Narula bring to you the latest cricket podcast on the block... HotSpot.

In the third episode of HotSpot, we take a brief look back at the second Test between India and South Africa in Pune. India won by an innings and 137 runs, after Virat Kohli scored 254*. 

But it was not about who grabbed the spotlight. It was about unsung heroes... 

In this week's episode, we celebrate arguably the world's best wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha... and we celebrate the average Indian cricket fan... who suffers so much in silence just to attend a match. 

Our special guest on this show is a voice of the average Indian cricket fans... Vineet Gharge from the North Stand Gang (Wankhede).
