Podcast #9 - Ross Taylor

Podcast #9 - Ross Taylor
I catch up with Luteru Ross Taylor.  He's sitting in another quarantine hotel, this time in India before the Black Caps test series, which starts this week.   He's a bit nervous as he hasn't hit a ball since he hit the winning runs against India in the World Test Championship in June, apart from some throw downs from his young son.

We chat about our stories of cricket and our connection to my hometown of Wainuiomata.  He tells me about why he chose cricket over other sports and what he thinks is the reason that he's had such a long and illustrious career.  

He lets me know the secret to facing the fastest bowlers in the world and shares what it's like and what it takes to be a successful batsman at the highest level.  

I learned a lot about the amount of mental energy and strength you need to be a top-flight cricket batsman in a game he states "you fail at more than you succeed".

Listen in to learn from a New Zealand Cricketing Great.
