Mark Nicholas invites cricketing heroes, fans and vanguards from across the globe to share how their passion for the sport has shaped their lives.
Using the prism of cricket to tell their stories, Mark delves into their
childhood beginnings, traces the milestones that brought them recognition in their field, and uncovers the many accomplishments — and challenges — that have shaped their journeys.
In the last episode of the series, I am joined by the legendary broadcaster Micheal Parkinson — a man whose love of cricket knows no boundary but is perhaps better known as the master of the televised conversation.
Few British actors have conquered America with quite the intensity and integration achieved by Not Just Cricket's fifth guest, Damian Lewis. An Old Etonian whose acting skills were further honed at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, he's also — despite what he might tell you — a more than decent cricketer.
Today, I speak to Clare Balding — one amongst the pre-eminent broadcasters of the age. At ease with the many sports she brings to life on global television screens, an OBE in 2013 recognised both for her work in journalism and in campaigning for, and endorsing, opportunities for women in and around sport.
This episode, I’ll be talking to the impressive Dr Sarah Fane OBE about how she has combined her two passions of medicine and cricket — including her work to create opportunities for young Afghan cricketers to make it all the way to the top in the sport.
This week, we are joined by the driven Eddie Jones. We delve deep into the mind of the man from Oz, who has helmed the English national rugby team since 2015. Tune in for a conversation about rugby, cricket and a whole lot more.
Our first episode is with arguably the world’s greatest contemporary batsman and captain of his national team — India's Virat Kohli. In this episode, Virat opens up about his journey to becoming a professional cricketer, including the impact of the loss of his father, as well as shares his mental health challenges later in his career.
