    Michelle Goszko - Special Guest On The Cricket Library Podcast

    Michelle Goszko is one of the most passionate cricket people that you will ever meet.

    In this edition of the Cricket Library Podcast, we will hear from Michelle about the origins of that passion and how it lead her to a distinguished career with the highly successful NSW Breakers and National honours.

    Michelle sheds light on her historic double hundred on Test debut, the winning culture at the Breakers, winning a World Cup at Eden Gardens and her prowess with the ball.

    We also get some insights into the highs and lows of being an elite athlete and her transition out of playing cricket into coaching and commentary roles.

    The cricket family was in shock last year when Michelle suffered a stroke and she shares openly about the impact of this and her road to recovery.

    Needless to say, we ask Michelle to select three people that she would most like to have a net session with.
