Vic recounts the tales of his first tour to Sri Lanka in the 1980s under David Gower’s leadership, while there are of course plenty of selection issues to iron out, with Jack Leach in focus, and a chat on the challenges new opening batsman Rory Burns faces.

With the weather causing havoc during monsoon season in Sri Lanka, Vic believes Sir Ian Botham was the best ‘wet weather captain’ – in how quickly he could get matches called off!

Of course, there was some fun had at the expense of the Australians – after the pictures of Aussie’s home dressing room showed a slogan labelled ‘elite honesty’, with the quartet saying respecting the game is all that is needed.
