Simon Hughes

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:06 pm on 8 December 2015

Simon Hughes had a pretty good innings as a professional cricketer, playing in England, South Africa and New Zealand as a bowler. He's now known as 'The Analyst', working as a sports journalist for TV and newspapers. But it is his boyhood dream of being a batsman that still haunts him. Hughes takes a closer look at the qualities, well beyond talent, that lead to success in batting and in life. His new book is called Who Wants to be a Batsman?
