In a test career of 96 matches, 45 of which he spent as England captain, Nasser Hussain was renowned for his forthright views, a trait carried into his broadcasting career. Some of the highlights from interview are below
- Test cricket is not in demise. It’s still a wonderful product.
- Just because crowd are not flooding in for Test matches in certain parts of the world doesn’t mean they’re not interested in Test matches.
- What India and Virat Kohli have done in the last couple of years is amazing. They have they taken to Test match cricket. They’ve upped their number of games, both home and away, and seem to be really putting meaning into it.
- India are a powerhouse because cricket is in their blood. They’re as strong as they are not because of the IPL or because of Virat Kohli but because it’s their absolute passion, it’s what they do, it’s who they are, and we shouldn’t be jealous of that.
