Then the team give us some highlights, lowlights and predictions for 2022.

The Ashes are set to start this week and The Producer is joined by Erik Nielsen and Darren DeKretser on his Bats and Balls debut.

Erik and Darren break down both the Australian and English line ups. Is Ben Stokes ready to carry England?, Will Starc hold his place in the side? are just some of the questions to be answered in this series.

Big Bash has returned with both Sydney teams getting off to a great start. In other cricket around the world India destroyed New Zealand in their last test match even though Ajaz Patel was huge taking all 10 wickets in the 1st innings.

In the EPL Brighton keep finding ways not to lose with 2 equalisers late in games in the last week. Darren's Leeds are near the bottom but fighting hard just needing to convert some draws into wins. Erik's Man City are on top and going very well.

Motorsport saw the Bathurst 1000 and a crazy F1 race over the weekend. Chaz Mostert and Lee Holdsworth won at Bathurst after having the best car all weekend. F1 was just crazy with 2 red flags and loads of drama and Lewis Hamilton taking the win. This means we are all tied up in the drivers championship coming into the last round.

Erik then ends the show by talking MLB and the player lockout. Can they fix the issues before the season starts?
