Dave Podmore

Dave Podmore is a fictional English cricketer.

Co-written by the English actor and writer Christopher Douglas, Andrew Nickolds and Nick Newman, his column appears in The Guardian.

Podmore began his career with Leicestershire, and he is married to Jackie Podmore,a lap-dancer. He owns a psychotic dog called Saxon. He views cricket as a means to making easy money through match-fixing, benefit nights, appearances at supermarket openings and the sadly aborted attempt to open the Dave Podmore Academy of Cricket Excellence.

Before the 2006/7 Ashes series he was appointed sledging coach to the Australian Cricket team.

His Test batting average is 4.

"An edge through the slips against Sri Lanka, they cannot take that away from me ...except in Wisden which says it was leg byes".

Dave Podmore also become a comic radio series broadcast on BBC Radio 4, and often repeated on BBC Radio 7. Between 2001 and 2007 there were three series of Dave Podmore's Cricket Night and an Ashes special.

Dave Podmore's Ashes Quest was broadcast at the end of 2006 and the beginning of 2007. "A History of the Ashes in 100 objects" (inspired by the acclaimed BBC Radio 4 series "A History of the World in 100 Objects) was broadcast to coincide with the Ashes series in December 2010.

Two books have also been produced, called Pod Almighty and Word of Pod.
