Hartley came good, finally. She bit the bullet, swallowed her pride and asked the question. Which meant the girls could welcome "the" Michael Vaughan on to No Balls: TCP this week.
Questions about balls, concourse cricket, the 2005 Ashes series and women's cricket are put to Mick. Plus, one of the girls also reveals that she had a poster of Vaughan on her wall as a youngster.
Another week of catching up as Hartley takes part in the Rachel Heyhoe-Flint Trophy and more bio-secure bubbles for Crossy.
Welcome back to another episode of No Balls: The Cricket Podcast.
Finally the girls have a guest, they have managed to twist the arm of Henry Moeran and quiz him about life on the 'dark side', working with Hartley and how women's cricket has changed over the years.
The girls also talk all thing Rachel Heyhoe-Flint, captaincy and why Hartley hasn't washed her hair for what looks like 30 days.
It's been more than a year since the girl's have been team-mates but this weekend they will be taking the field together in the inaugural Rachael Heyhoe-Flint Trophy. Find out what they think going into the weekend.
Raw onions, away trips and washing machine overuse. Season two is delivering all the hot topics of conversation.
We need some emails though so please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org
There really was no reason for a new season but the girls are happy and enjoying recording the podcast again. Listen to this weeks episode and find out if the girls think they are just as funny as the week previous.
They talk about all sorts this week, from women's cricket to loose bowels. You name it they talk about it.
Find out why Crossy had a near death experience and how Kev is getting on with the new job. (also Kev if you are listening, how are you getting on?)
After a couple of weeks away, Hartley and Crossy are back with a bang! The break has meant No Balls: TCP is into it's second season.
After a lengthy catch up the girls discuss the England bio-secure bubble, the creation of North-West Thunder as well as the postponement of the World Cup.
Not to mention the eclectic mix of emails that have been sat waiting to be opened. A day on the bench? Explained. Embarrassing stories? Of course. Need a name for your new dog? They'll help.
Listen to this week's episode to find out why the girls talk about their personal lives, what they really think of Dom Sibley's batting performance and if they did or did not win a British Podcast award.
This week the girls don't have a guest and it isn't their funniest but Hartley doesn't swear for the first time in weeks, so if you ask them it is 100% a win win.
As always pass the pod onto a friend.
Hey all you cool cats & kittens. Firstly, thanks to Hartley for turning up for this episode, although the hangover does seem to shine through. Secondly, apologies if she sounds like her pet goldfish just died.
It has taken 24 episodes but the girls finally have something named after them. Make sure you listen to find out what it is.
An episode of No Balls wouldn't be complete without a few embarrassing stories, and this one is no exception. Which England cricketer has Crossy been DM'ing now? Special mention to housemate Bec for providing some excellent faux pars too.
Crossy promised Hartley that she would get Shikha Pandey on the podcast, she took the plunge and asked the question, Shikha said yes.
Listen to this weeks episode to find out if Shikha really is or isn't a pilot, how Crossy accidently slid into one of the England boys DMs and how Hartley had to have a sit down shower after not getting the backing from her captain 12 months away from a competition.
Sorry about the language, Hartley forgets we have a no swear rule this week.
The hindsight podcast strikes again with the big news that Hartley has signed her retainer contract to become a professional cricketer, once again! The girls discuss what this means and how it shapes the future for women's cricket.
The girls begged for emails and you did not disappoint. From sensible chats about changing the women's game to animal impressions and mattress analysis, this episode is less maverick but certainly no less fun.
