BBC Radio 5 live and BBC Asian Network have teamed up to produce a new podcast for the South Asian cricketing community.

The Doosra is presented by World Cup winning England Women’s player Isa Guha, stand-up comedian Aatif Nawaz and BBC Asian Network host Ankur Desai. The podcast has been launched as Pakistan and India tour the UK this summer.

 ach week, the presenting trio will be joined by a host of voices from the world of cricket, with IPL superstar Jos Buttler their special guest for the series pilot.

The first episode, now available online, features Pakistan legend Waqar Younis. A Doosra – a type of delivery by an off-spin bowler - is translated as ‘the other one’ in Hindi and Urdu. BBC 5 live now has 44 podcasts on its roster
