My guys are welcome back to another ways a podcast and today I have with me as very special guest. He has won the CPL t twenty. He was the last minute change into the final. He's plaid around the world in Countless Twenty League with fifty ten leagues. Well, he's play in the Pakistan League, the Big Bash and he's made a name so far, being clearly young into the new cricketing world. And this is going to be a very excited episode. So stay tuned and we'll get straight into it with Phil Salt. I'm here joined with Phil Salt, who has played with fim correct Sussex strikers in the big big Bash League, the barbarest Tridents, which you added last in that last final, really and truly calenders in the tea ten league, the Islamabad united in the Pakistani League. So out of all those, which would you really say is your most which has been your most enjoyable and which you've like enjoyed the cultures and whatever is? Yeah, the most aside, the most I've enjoyed maker here would be big bash. Like ground you get to play a you know, it's a good competition to be a better wikets were always quite nice, just everything that goes with it. You know, they pumber up quite well. It's the closest thing you'll ever get to sort of playing like American sport while you're still playing cricket. So it's pretty cool. It's pretty good to be a part of it. Like when I was in Adelaide, you go round and they do stuff that you just don't get over here in other comps, like your face will be on the side of a tram or do you know there's a local like TV ads? You're always be on them. So it's a it's a different sort of platform you run when you're playing that camp. So that would be my favorite. But...

I love playing that final barberid or something, and even just speaking about that funnel with Barby tous. I mean a lot of people say you really were unfortunately given oat, but what really was going on here your head, because I mean from my point of view, in know that you were sending back up to facing next ball really and truly, but just turn around all the Ol boys hand up. So what was really going through your head and emotions were injure? The other thing it was it was more shocked than anything else, because I've never been more confident going into a game of cricket because I saw a pride myself for being able to stand up and perform, you know, and the pressures on. You know, I love playing under that sort of pressure and I thought just coming in, getting straight off the play, get some kids together in a final, the big game, cepl boy and CPL even better, Boby us. I felt so free and I thought I was going to get runs. I was just a given. I thought I was going to get seventeen, you know, Bang, a couple who ever sign know what a great ddition hear us. And then as soon as it came up the arm, I just pure shock. You can't, we can't put words to it, like literally, and when I still put his finger in the air, it's just I could believe I'd come all the way. The three balls, or whatever it is, given out. Wow. Yeah, I mean I was kind of really, really unfortunately. I mean a lot of people weren't really taking everybody saw that it was not really out. After you replay was shown over, and I mean for me, I know the quality that you have really and truly because obviously I've known you for another of the years playing with wanderers and many other like stuff being here. You you performed in over the years. They followed you as time as going on. So I was really looking for to see you even really score at or even more. I just said it's seventeen. But just looking to Barbados, you you not not necessarily grew up here, but you spent a number of...

...years here, playing with wanderers, playing with my brother and with a number of other persons. Given your teammate, know Jow for Archer, your time here. How was that? Come like truck from being here and then going back up to England. Well, I was elately transition for kid. Yeah, well, when I moved out to Barbaydus I loved it from day one, like it was. It was obvious the best place you could possibly live. You know, and you said, I do kind of people ask me where I've grown up or whatever. I say Barbay dous. You know, I'd love to move back there one day. Is so good. I was very lucky to play quickly with the people I have, like I've known job since I was eleven and now a teammates the sus sex and hopefully England one day. So you know, it's it's been cool. Like I'm still in touch with other videos to play with out there, including the brother love. We had some real good times. I Remember Your Dad just to put put games together, used to get teams together and every time I come back, if it's for a week or two weeks or break from school, I'll be mailing your dad saying if you got any games of cricket going the Games of cricket for me and then always be a couple, but always be a couple of English story insides. So we normally get pretty good teams together for that with me, Jeff Rogg, your play your brother like prime and play a few games that we have been yeah, I mean that would out by must have been a really unchot enjoyable time and they do and expect that as time goes on there you will even come back to play in the CPI. Hopefully fingers cross that the CPI does happen this year and that we can have a successful time. But even though that, there is the brick, of course. Vid N Eighteen. How has that really affected you in training and all the social distancing everything and whilst the next move in from the cricket for you it's it's well, to be honest, I've taken it sort of you know, you can look at it to a you can say, Oh, it's obviously I'm going with not playing and I was in the best place my game...

...has ever been for this break. So was I was got to. I can't sort of keep that momentum on. And you know, if we had a full season, hope that would have made a pretty good, pretty good push for the England teaswheny World Cup side. But you know we're not going to get a full season. So no times limited. I'm to go honest, I'm taking a silver line in that I get a bit break. I'm not a break for twenty four months or so, you know, and that I've been playing cricket the whole time. So I think more than anything it's just a nice little break for a couple of months and I can come back refreshed and, you know, build on that momentum. Adad, yeah, speaking but momentum. Yes, you do say you have a really long brill going at cricket, for in the moment of times you just came off the back of being in the final of a big Bash Ley. I mean, I'm fortunately you didn't come home top, but and then you had a successful Pak a stain league. But yeah, we're and even when you had a re re rememberable match any big Bash League where you you stood up and with your opening partner, are you the two of you knocked off the runs in no time. You had a staff center in there and I remember watching somebody highlights and and seeing some of those big, big sixies. I mean, you have a lot of power and not going to lay but we're does, as you said, they buy big Bashley can really compute to a lot of other places. But as you go into the final, how did that really late feel you, although you didn't go all the way? Am Yes, you trophy. Yeah, knows. It was great to play big actually, you know, very grateful for the opportunity and to be honest, that I absolutely loved every single bit in the big bash. As I said, it's that it's most fun I had on the cricket pitch. It's most enjoyable. Yeah, that game against Brisbane was good, it were. I think at that was actually a time where, as a side, we actually actually really came together and you know, sort of says, you know, we can...

...make a real push in the finals at this point because we've got bait at the gather two days previous, by by they and it was quite a comprehensive biting. So to come back and answer in the way that we did. You know, we thought as a side that that showed a lot about as in our character. You know, that we were hoping to go a bit further in the CAN. Unfortunately we didn't. You know, we had a bit of there in a final game, but but you know, I guess that's so, what happens. That's cricket. Yeah, that's cricket. Yeah, you've played a lot in t twenty leagues, for say, but you have your four hundreds in first classic kit. So what you see yourself as? Strictly a t twenty player, as in that that the region under the way, in the path that you're really trying to folks on, as opposed to the test match or one day team. Yeah, I think right now my strengths lie in my white ball cricket, but that's not to say that I'm not working harder or forms. You know, you know work. Just start my fliday cricket as I do my t twenty and fifty hours and yeah, to be quite honest, the moment I'm just focused on being a better all round player. I'm not I'm not thinking too far ahead. I'm not thinking I want to play these leagues, do this, want to do this. You know, the folks are getting better and if I do that and I'm focused and I get everything else right, what will be will be. Yeah, and just even screen area from cricket a bit. You recently had a pose on your instagram where you had you're holding a big, big fish. So I'm sure I, like many other persons, as a Cricketer, you've played golf as well, I'm sure like. Yeah, I've played ye basis. Yeah, yeah, so golf and fishing. Fishing has been an event that's in your lay for a long time, or is this something that's reason? Yeah, no, it's cart fish increasing. My Dad used to...

...take me a lot when I was younger, but cart fishing is recent. It's quite different to, you know, the sort of stuff I used to do with my dad, like float fishing that sort of stuff. But yeah, that I caught two peebies this week. I got two personal bests. Nice big mirror up who was just over twenty pounds and common carp which was about twenty three, twenty four. So that was good fun. I do that with one of our mates called down down way, the place where the Morgan I heard of him. But yeah, we just went up to it was a place in sorry, we love fishing, so we do that a couple times a week, or we will be from now on. Golf. Yeah, I like gold, but I guess stuck in the same cycle and Trop I play, I'll play well. I want to get better. I got with high expectations, I don't practice enough or I don't have enough time to practice enough to get really good and then I lose interest in it. So it's like a cycle like that and they just keeps going around and round. Interesting. I just like somebody big names in cricket that you know you probably would have played golf with. there. Know, among all the stories that you've played with, you play with a number of stories, even in big Bash League, even Cepl who would you really see has late being your favorite to play with among the late icons that you would have grown up watching? HMM, to play with? Has Been so many. I remember the two thousand and Eleven World Cup. Finally, even versus Australia I remember the end of that game. I had I had like Luke rant and Mike yardy signing stuff for me and you know, and I played with them at Sussex and yards was a band coach, while Brighty, obviously I still open the bank with him, so that's pretty cool. Over, those guys played against, it doesn't get better than they be. Played against David the big bash was really good, and even got a chance to have the chat to him...

...after the game, which is really cool. So I'd say I'd say this. There's too many to really pick from guys that played with, but Abe's definitely one of the best I played against. Yeah, for sure, I've watched the even number of years and I mean I still count as that hole he is able to play some of the shots that he does. And I mean you standing up in big Bash League being the a keeper. I mean you're seeing everything from right behind the stump. So I mean that room must have been something to really enjoy and witness at least. But even speaking about Sussex as you did, how did you really get into playing for Sussex? And you've played, no, you've done well for them in the DND t twenty league. As well for them. But how is that really going for you? Yeah, it's going good. It's been took quite growing up in Barbados, I never saw of expected to leave Barby dous and you know, I was happy to play my cricket. You know, one point plays the west Indian which was what I was looking at, is what I wanted to do. But you know, I got this great opportunity in England I couldn't really turn down and I've got the chance to go to reads and sorry and play for them. I couldn't get into sorry set up at a pretty strung year at that at that point, and you know they have guys that they've had for you had for a few years. I coming through the system. So I wasn't really a space for me. But then coming to the end of my school and I got a chance to play for Sussex second team. Got A couple runs in the said. Yeah, is an academy contract for one year and then after that one year they gave me another one year academy deal and then I got a junior pro deal the next year and signed on as an apprentice. Yeah, that's that must have been really, really interesting. I have a question from one of my current teammates. At least you would have played against him when you came back down in a tour, but...

...you'd demise just that won't be see with remember. Yeah, yeah, he has to keep asking about if you really remember that game from twenty four. Tea Says I went pc m all that really was. Yeah, I remember again. I remember I didn't think I was going to get back. I think it was. I think you guys must have got two hundred. I'm I'm all right, though. I really CAMEM. That was cover really long time ago now and I've played it lots, pretty much is since. Yeah, remember, if I remember, got two foot, two hundred and forty and our openness set about it pretty well and I was back in middle load of that game. Yeah, and I came in. I think I got sixty seven quite quickly. Yes, I remember the sixty seven out and I remember at one point I realized it was next and I've never practice a shot before my life, but I just thought, you know what, I'll just trying to lapt it down there. It's yes, I remember that very, very faintly and I was I was standing out point at the time and I was shocked. I could not believe you can a shot. I had to just watch it all because, I mean, I mean I know that that you have the ability, but I to see it really a true just doing it, after just waking us all what they had to grown. It was. It was astonishing. But yeah, even I'm just taking it back to England side of it, you did make when you made your first hundred and in both twenty and first class fork it. I ondered that really feel? Yeah, know it. It's nothing better than getting a hundred, you know, but if you can maybe something better in life and get a hundred, I'll be shocked because there really is nothing better but the most rewarding hundreds I found of coming, you know, the longer form in the game where you've you know, you've had to have to bat a bit longer and you know, guys Bob well that you and you know you've had a bit of lack...

...or might have had a bit. You know, whatever it goes. Yes, the question earlier about long form most short forms. I love the long form and you know, for me there's nothing better than getting runs in that long form. Well, I mean that is Philsop days. I'm just going to wrap it up here now because they think he might be a little bit busy and, as he is, you know, gave it all the covid stuff and what's not so I'll just wrap things up here. I mean is, are there? Is there anything that you want to like promote any or anything like that right now? Now, nothing, right now. Just everybody listen to this. Keeps down safe, I guess. Yeah, yes, and yes, truly do. Please stay, stay out there when there's this going please subscribe.
