Scoop Podcast: NAIDOC week with Ash Gardner

Ash Gardner joins the Scoop Podcast to reflect on her record-breaking wicket haul at Trent Bridge, as well as the legacy of Faith Thomas

Ahead of Australia's second T20 at The Oval, Ashleigh Gardner - the most in-form player in the world - joins Laura Jolly and Emily Collin on the Scoop Podcast in London to celebrate NAIDOC week happening back home in Australia, as well as her new record of best Test figures by an Australian woman.

Ash, who is a proud Muruwari woman, pays tribute to the late, great Faith Thomas who was the first Aboriginal person to play Test cricket for Australia, as well as explaining some of the work she's been doing with kids in Dubbo with the Ashleigh Gardner Foundation.

On the cricket front, Ash shares the messages she exchanged with Nathan Lyon ahead of Day Five at Trent Bridge, and her take on her evolution from part-time spinner to a genuine allrounder.
