This week on The Cricket Pod, co-hosts Paul Radley and Chitrabhanu Kadalayil talk about the Indian Premier League opener on Saturday.

What to make of Harbhajan Singh's three-wicket haul for Chennai Super Kings against Royal Challengers Bangalore? Was he genuinely outstanding? Did he benefit from a pitch that evidently helped spinners? Did Bangalore's batsmen play that badly? Does Harbhajan's performance prove age is no longer a factor in Twenty20 cricket?

Listen here to find out.

Also in this episode:

  • Has the IPL helped to raise the standards of both batting and bowling? Here is Kadalayil's take.
  • Who is Will Jacks – the 20-year-old who scored the first century in a T10 match? Radley finds out.
  • What could the UAE learn from their T10 series win last week? Coach Dougie Brown has his say.
