The 2023/24 Summer season has been filled with controversy and pantomime, pushing the boundaries of The Spirit Of Cricket with Mankads, Bazball, the Wandering Bairstow, alleged Lords going feral, the rain saved Ashes, the first ever Timed Out and so many more.
So Australia’s hardest working musical sports satirist uses his unique satirical spin to investigate these events, along with battles with broadcasters and sponsors, and the game’s history of treachery, villainy, facial hair, and illegal abrasives.

In Cricket The Musical he brings them to life on stage, along with songs, sketches and caricatures celebrating the many controversies of this summer’s matches.
