Tense scenes in Southampton at World Test Cricket Final

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:18 pm on 21 June 2021

There are a lot of bleary eyed kiwis at work today who have picked up a part time job watching test cricket in the small hours. The final of the world test cricket championship has ended its third day in Southampton. New Zealand and India are locked in a battle for victory, but the rain may have it's own plans. 

Co-host of The Spinoff's Cricket podcast The Offspin Simon Day has interrupted his adjusted sleep cycle to let Jesse know what's been going on overnight.
