Have you ever thought about the wider impact of cricket outside of the nitty gritty of techniques, tactics and results?
Makhaya Ntini has.
For Ntini, cricket is opportunity on a wider scale. He knows from personal experience. He was plucked from nothing as a boy in a Cape Province village, and went on to play a hundred Tests for South Africa. Recently, I spoke to the fast bowler about his new Academy, and it's clear that this passion continues.
