Scott Styris was one of New Zealand cricket’s best all-rounders, who played 188 ODIs, 29 test matches and 31 T20s for the Black Caps.

His playing career crossed the amateur and professional era of the sport as well as the introduction of T20 where he was one of the game’s original trailblazers and globetrotters. Now working as an international cricket commentator and pundit for over a decade he has a reputation as one of cricket’s sharpest minds with a ton of great stories from on and off the wicket.

Scott takes us behind the scenes of the IPL television scene, his marriage and pranks with wife Nicky, and wrestling with Anton Devcich. He talks about some of his memorable on-field clashes including his bust-up with Mitchell Johnson, and the short-lived bowl off tiebreaker in T20 cricket.

This episode is packed with tales from over 20 years in cricket and gives a glimpse of Styris’ personality; always up for a laugh, and propped up by a foundation of great insight and experience.
