Once Upon a Time in the Ashes is the podcast that celebrates the English and Australian cricketers who played in just one Ashes test match.

There are 134 in total who hold this claim to fame. 89 of them have sadly passed away, including Eric Hollies who bowled the Don for that famous duck to deny Bradman his perfect average of 100.

45 of them are still with us – 24 from England and 21 from Australia. On the English side this ranges from Ken Taylor, who played his one Ashes test in 1964, to Sam Curran in 2019. For Australia, the span is Keith Slater in 1959 to Ed Cowan in 2013.

Stay tuned to Once Upon a Time in the Ashes for interviews and features with them all.

It's a delight to welcome Jonathan Agnew of Leicestershire, England and TMS to the show. Jonathan played his one and only Ashes Test at Old Trafford in 1985. His Test debut againt the indomitable West Indies side during the 'Blackwash' series of 1984; his late call up to the tour of India the following winter; and some memorable and daunting moments at the MCG. All this and much more. It's an episode not to be missed.
