    142: Mike Selvey - What has this cricketer, writer & broadcaster not done? PART TWO

    142: Mike Selvey - What has this cricketer, writer & broadcaster not done? PART TWO

    Mike Selvey joins the Cricket Badger to talk about his life and times in cricket. A Middlesex player, England Test cricketer, chief cricket writer for The Guardian, broadcaster on Test Match Special, Mike has rinsed pretty much every ounce of work, joy and success from the sport. Now the President of Middlesex CCC and the Cricket Writers Club and a regular contributor to The Cricketer magazine, Selvey is not going into his dotage quietly.
    The chat moves from his three Test caps, to bowling at the great Viv Richards in his prime, to Mike Brearley as his county captain, always bowling into the wind and his experiences of becoming a much-respected journalist and expert summariser on the nation's most loved sports radio show.
    At the end of this Part Two of the Mike Selvey interview, we also hear from Luke Dunning who takes up the opportunity for his Five Minutes with a piece on how frustrated he gets with batsmen being selected out of position.

    Monty takes on the Cricket Badger 20 Questions and some of his answers are priceless. Now 38, the former Northamptonshire, Sussex and Essex player hasn't completely given up on a return to the county game. But if cricket remains in the past tense, Hollywood look out!
