In the latest PCA vodcast, host David Fulton is joined by a panel of guests who all offer their unique insights into how cricket has responded to the Covid crisis. PCA Chairman Daryl Mitchell, Durham seam bowler Chris Rushworth and PCA Personal Development Manager Matthew Wood provide the expert insight.
With the men’s domestic season restarting Saturday 1 August following the successful return of international cricket earlier in July, the guests reflect on how cricket has come together with players leading the way.
- Mitchell has been PCA Chairman since February 2017 and has overseen the players’ association in a vital time for the game. Since the current crisis began, he has been at the heart of negotiations with players, ECB and counties to ensure player views are being represented.
- Rushworth not only leads Durham’s bowling attack but is their PCA representative and used time in lockdown to work on his personal development away from cricket while supporting Mitchell with his role on the PCA Players’ Committee.
- Wood has been a Personal Development Manager at the PCA for over nine years, following a successful county career with Yorkshire and Glamorgan. He is part of a six-person team who support all current and former players. The Personal Development and Welfare team supported over 100 current players who started new courses throughout lockdown.
The vodcast is the fifth of a series in partnership with Greene King. Last week saw Andy Caddick, Devon Malcolm and Alec Stewart discuss ’90s cricket, following on from previous episodes on the rise of women’s cricket, successful county captains and T20 pioneers which you can all see below.
