Alastair Cook

The podcast looks back at the third npower Test at the Brit Insurance Oval, in which defeat by Pakistan reduced England's series lead to 2-1 with one to play.

Opposing captains Andrew Strauss and Salman Butt reflect on the game, and look ahead to the final npower Test at Lord's, along with England fast bowler Steven Finn.

After Alastair Cook's return to form, Sky Sports commentator and former England captain Mike Atherton talks about how to deal with the pressure that builds when an opening batsman has a lean run.

Our podcast pundit Mike Gatting looks back at the third Test and forward to the fourth, and in a season where the captaincy has changed mid-term at six first-class counties, considers the reasons why.

We also hear from one of the captains to have taken over during this season, the Middlesex all-rounder Neil Dexter.

And there's a trip down memory lane with cricket historian David Frith, who recalls some of the highlights of a 40-year career celebrated in his latest book.
