Ahead of ICC World Twenty20 2010 both Jimmy Anderson and Eoin Morgan are optimistic about England's prospects, as is Claire Taylor that England Women can retain their crown.
Podcast pundit Mike Gatting believes that England's squad has an encouraging look about it, and is backing England's women to win.
Their coach Mark Lane talks about the Caribbean challenge from his perspective, while Taylor, refreshed after a winter break, is thrilled to be back in the squad.
Alec Stewart and ECB's Hugh Morris give their views on whether England really can break their duck in global one-day tournaments this time in the West Indies.
On these shores, the Podcast got stuck into the new Clydesdale Bank 40, with Unicorns manager Gordon Child saying how important participation in the tournament is to the non first class game in England.
We also hear from Clydesdale's Colin Fyfe, while Stewart looks at the tournament prospects, and recent history of domestic one-day cricket.
Last word is with Surrey fans at the tournament opener at Whitgift School last Sunday - enjoying their family day out.
