I must be missing something, she cannot interview.

We'll Aussies tend not to bother about age whether they are young or old as long at the time of their selection they are playing well. Unlike the Ecb who only pick people in their selective squads

What a lovely interview. He comes across as a genuinely nice guy, which makes one wish that he continues with his current success for a couple of years more.

So happy for this guy. It shows that you never can write off a player and age can be just a number. Full credit to the Aussie administration. Due attention should be given to the fact that some players may mature much later than others.

The interviewer has a bewitching smile, by the way. Regards from India Mr. Rogers

Great interview. It gave a lot of insight into the world of a pro cricketer. Very humble guy, who has understates his talent. He kept mentioning who lucky he is. I don't think it's all been luck. Pretty much the opposite personality type to KP.

Really good interview. Assume it was before the Yorkshire game.

Fascinating interview Alison. It would be very interesting for Cricinfo readers if you could have tea with Sangikara and Dhoni over the coming summer.
