    Awesome! He came off as very humble and honest here. Quite enjoyed the mankad story in particular.

    Great interview - well done. As others have said, he comes over as being a very humble man, whilst also possessing a very sharp insight into the game and so many of the players he has seen.

    Interesting to read about Pollock bowling beamers at Boycott, as I'd previously read about him bowling one at Basil D'Oliveira in a festival game.

    It's in the biography of Bob Barber that was recently published - although it was Bob and not Boycs who took him to task about it

    Well done Fred, his insights on the Pollocks was my favourite part of a top interview.

    Woah. Can't imagine what it must be like to speak with someone of such calibre.

    Richards is one lucky guy..
