Get your rig in to shape and your salad sorted, cos the Grade Cricketer lads are hitting the road for a very special run of LIVE podcasts to coincide with this summers test series against India.
As wide-eyed juniors, Dave Edwards, Sam Perry and Ian Higgins all dreamed of playing cricket for Australia one day. That was before they entered the harsh, dog-eat-dog world of Australian grade cricket, where their hopes and dreams were swiftly extinguished; their cricketing careers subsequently laid to rest. As a form of catharsis, ‘The Grade Cricketer’ was born: a desperate, delusional ‘everyman’ that thousands of middling amateur athletes can relate to, even if they refuse to admit it publicly.
Fresh from their chart-topping podcast, The Grade Cricketer, the trio are now taking their wares to the live stage. Join them as they attempt to hold a mirror to that dark, inescapable intangible that binds us all: Australian Cricket Culture.

Ed Cowan – Former Australian Test Cricketer
