I was invited to preview the Newlands Test Match with Michael Atherton from a helicopter. What an amazing experience.
I live in Cape Town but have never done this before and Athers has become a great friend over the years. He wasn’t at the start of my career when I was desperate for an interview in 1995 in Paarl and he was Captain of England. But time moves on and we laugh about it now.
What a great morning we had seeing Cape Town from the air and discussing the prospects for the second test.
I am writing a tour diary for SuperSport – you can find it on the SuperSport.com website by clicking here.
I am also commentating for TalkSport2 for the whole tour and will be on SABC for the Newlands Test.
