This week on The Cricket Pod, Sports Editor Graham Caygill and Chitrabhanu Kadalayil talk to Paul Radley, on the phone from the UK, about why there has not been a lot of enthusiasm for the 2019 Cricket World Cup in the country.

One of the reasons for this could be the attention other sporting events, such as the Uefa Champions League final, have garnered. But with them being out of the way, there is hope yet fans will shift their focus to cricket.

It is in this context that the Ben Stokes catch in England's win over South Africa is important, in that it could possibly help draw more attention the tournament deserves.
