Natalie Germanos and Fatima Ahmed.
A wonderful conversation between 3 cricket lovers. Natalie Germanos, an established radio and television commentator and Fatima Ahmed, also known as the Popping crease join Dean du Plessis to talk about their highs and lows as journalists, and the game in general
He was one of Zimbabwe’s most successful captains, yet one of the country’s most infuriating players in terms of consistency. Alistair Campbell captained Zimbabwe from 1996 to 1999, during which time, Zimbabwe played some of their best cricket ever. Yet, Campbell had a more than disappointing average of 27 in 60 test matches. He was at the helm when Zimbabwe had their famous 3-0 ODI win over England, as well as their 1999 World Cup success when they advanced to the Super sixes of the tournament in England. Campbell also had his share of controversy off the field after cricket. Another great one on one chat between the former skipper and Dean du Plessis.
“ not many people get to do what they want to do”. Mpumelelo Pommie Mbangwa. .
His rich and powerful voice has boomed into the living rooms, and crept into the hearts of millions of cricket lovers around the world for the last 15 years. In this wonderful one on one with Dean du Plessis, former Zimbabwean seamer now commentator Pom Mbangwa explains how he got his nickname, describes in vivid detail how he got his first test wicket, and remembers how he and the rest of the Zimbabwean team contemplated not returning to the field after a drinks break, after some appalling umpiring in a test match against Sri Lanka in 1998. Pom also reflects on his time as a commentator, and is quick to point out that what he does is a privilege.
Ed Rainsford. “I couldn’t understand why my Dad’s family never loved us the way my Mom’s family did”
When listening to Edward Charlie Rainsford commentating on your television or radio set, he comes across as a loud jovial character. Often his lighthearted approach in the commentary box is misunderstood as being arrogant, or not taking his job or the game seriously. This couldn’t be any further from the truth as you will find out when listening to this very deep conversation between Ed and Dean du Plessis. Rainsford admits that he is a “complicated guy”. And, like so many former Zimbabwean players of colour, Rainsford also had his share of difficulties to deal with. Including his Mother’s horrific battle with cancer.
