Not Just Cricket on BBC 5 Live

Not Just Cricket has been allowed onto the airwaves yet again, this time coming live from Trent Bridge, the home of Notts County Cricket Club.

Not Just Cricket is unique on British Radio. Lots of Sports shows feature former stars or interviews with current players but NJC is the only show which is presented by 2 players who are still at the very top of the world game. NJC is the cricketing equivalent of having Wayne Rooney present a football show or Andy Murray front a Tennis programme. Ably assisted by Greg James our cricketing duo of Graeme Swann and Jimmy Anderson allow the listener unique access into the world of cricket – the changing room, team hotel, team bus, training camps and events on the pitch – no place is off limits, no subject matter not allowed. Therefore the listener is given an exclusive insight into what happened when England captain Andrew Strauss resigned, what it’s like being away on tour for months on end and what happened when Andrew Flintoff was hit where the sun doesn’t shine! The show also aims to make cricket, a sport often seen as stuffy and boring, more accessible to the casual listener. We therefore mix humour, quizzes, special guests and music – check out our theme tune – to bring the sport to life and encourage even those who have no interest in cricket to listen. Not Just cricket is the sports show which is for sports fans and non sports fans alike.
