Piepa Cleary special guest on the Cricket Library Weekly

This week on the Cricket Library Weekly, Matt Ellis catches up with Piepa Cleary from the Perth Scorchers and Western Fury. We hear some interesting insights from the young opening bowler about her passion for cricket, winning the WNCL title with WA last summer, her interests outside of cricket and how preparations are tracking for the upcoming WNCL season with the Fury.

The lads also have a look at the test series between Australia and India to reflect on what has been a series for the ages.

We also delve into the run home as teams jostle to make their way into the top 5 and feature in the finals.

The Cricket Library Weekly Has Arrived

In 2012, Matt Ellis started the Cricket Library Podcast with the intention of providing extra coverage of Australian domestic cricket. Initially, the podcast was a selection of the best segments of his weekly radio show on Bucketts Radio in Gloucester.

Last year, the Cricket Library Podcast underwent a refresh sharing stories of over twenty guests with the aim of inspiring a love of cricket.

These longer form interviews have proved very popular around the world with a number of episodes trending at the top of the Apple cricket podcast charts in various locations. Some examples of this have been an interview with former Australian leg spinner Peter McIntyre reaching number 1 in the Netherlands, Graham Manou, Erica Kershaw and Katie Mack claiming top spot in Brazil, Ryan Harris and Jamie Siddons holding down places one and two respectively in South Africa and an interview with Tim Ludeman trending at number one in the cricket mad nation India.

To complement these longer interviews, the Cricket Library Weekly is launching in September and will be bolstered by the addition of a co host in Albury media personality Robbie Mackinlay. Robbie is well known for his work calling the Sheffield Shield, Marsh Cup and WBBL and he is expected to add an extra dimension to the show teaming up with Matt Ellis to bring you a bite sized weekly program aiming to inspire, entertain and inform.

Guests will include current and past players, administrators, coaches, volunteers, media personalities and cricket tragics from all walks of life. Episodes will be released every Monday morning across all of the major podcast providers including Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Google Podcasts to name a few.
