When The Village Cricketer met Iain O'Brien

When The Village Cricketer met Iain O'Brien

Iain O'Brien, former New Zealand fast bowler, has retired from the international game to move to the UK, build a life with his English wife, and play for Middlesex. The Village Cricketer had the great pleasure of interviewing Iain - interrupting a wholesome vegetable soup cooking session - for the first of Test Match Sofa's new series of podcasts.

During the interview O’Brien discusses his retirement from the international game, the rising stars of New Zealand cricket, this season’s Middlesex prospects, the fear of batting against the world’s quickest bowlers, the fear of bowling to Sehwag, bantering with Ricky Ponting, being sledged by Fidel Edwards as well as how international sportsman will increasingly use new media to get closer to their fans.
