Zimbabwe vs india at Faridabad in 2002 - a nondescript ODI that was the scene of something extraordinary - one of the cricket world's first scoop shots! Douglas Marillier came in at number ten and blew away the Indian bowlers with an inventive, astonishing innings, at the same time confounding them by playing a shot they had never seen before. Our special guest Arnav Datta takes us through this game and how it changed his views on cricket to see someone who did something truly different. We segue into an entertaining discussion about Arnav's own career as a Kuwaiti cricketer on the international stage, before exchanging notes on how we have "played the scoop" (metaphorically, at least) in our own lives.
