Today I thought I'd try something new - an audio update. Well I say today, it has actually taken me about three days to put it all together, but it has been an interesting learning curve.
The idea is to provide regular updates on Women's Cricket that you can listen to in the car, on the train, at work or at home. And with a trip to New Zealand imminent I thought I might upload some updates from the other side of the world while I was away, so this is a warm-up.
They won't be long, otherwise they become too boring, but hopefully they will be informative, interesting and easy to listen to.
The first WCB Audio Update is here - https://soundcloud.com/martin-davies-34/wcb-audio-update-jan2015
It provides an update on the Australian domestic season which is coming to a climax; the latest games in the ICC Women's Championship where Pakistan have recorded a stunning 3-0 series win over Sri Lanka; and catches up with domestic cricket in New Zealand, where they too are reaching the end of their season, ahead of England's visit in mid-February for the last games in Round Two of the ICCWC.
I was hoping that England would announce their squad for New Zealand this week, but that will be at 10am on Monday, when I will be away, but check out the ECB website after 10am on Monday for all the news (http://www.ecb.co.uk/news/womens).
I hope you like the audiocast (there has to be a better name for it than that- ideas?). Please feel free to leave a comment below or email me with your thoughts - firstname.lastname@example.org
