The Cricket Collective - Stokes Un-Retires For The World Cup & Will Jacks Exclusive!

Neil Manthorp is joined by the former England fast bowler Steve Harmison to discuss the news that Ben Stokes has un-retired from ODI Cricket to play at this year's Cricket World Cup in India. They also hear the thoughts of National Selector Luke Wright after Harry Brook was surprisingly left out of the 15-man squad, and they also look ahead to the T20 series against New Zealand next week. They discuss what the ECB can do to deal with the lure of franchise Cricket, with Mark Wood signing to play in the ILT20 at the same time as England's tour of India in early 2024. The Surrey and England batter Will Jacks joins the show to reflect on his career so far, and his ambitions for the future, and we round up the week's other big stories, as South Africa confirm they'll send a weakened side to New Zealand, and Daniel Moriaty moves from Surrey to Yorkshire.
