Ep. 95 Bonus episode: Craig Mc Millan on Spin, Sledging and Superovers

In this mid-week bonus episode, we get the golden chance to interview Craig Mc Millan, ex New Zealand Cricket, batting coach and now commentator.

We speak to “Macca” and deep-dive the incredible third NZ v Ind T20 just concluded on Wednesday, particularly Shami’s last over, the big hitting innings from Kane Williamson as well as Rohit Sharma’s sixes.

We also speak about his love affair with India and playing spin, being sledged by Australians, playing in New Zealand’s first ever T20 and playing in 3 World Cups and the 2007 T20 World Cup.

We also ask him what it was like to be in the dressing room as batting coach during CWC19 final, how the Kiwis plotted to defeat India in their CWC semi-final and which teams he thinks are favourites to win the WT20.

Podcast available on IVM and all major platforms. You can find links to the Apple Podcasts, Google, Spotify, Castbox, YouTube etc here.
