The Future of School Cricket

In this episode, brought to you by Spur, Alex and Niels continue their conversation. This time the focus is on cricket after school and specifically one area where cricket is growing quickly and exponentially in South Africa: the women’s game. Niels discusses how his outlook on women’s cricket has shifted radically and why he is so excited for the Women’s Cricket World Cup in South Africa.

The start of the episode also features a highlights wrap from the weekend's school cricketing action.
