On this week’s ICC Cricket World radio show former England captain Michael Vaughan talks about life now he’s retired from both international and domestic cricket and he also comments on how he thinks England will do during its tour to South Africa.

He says: “Life after retirement has been good. It has given me the chance to control my own diary for first time in 18 years and it’s totally different. I didn’t have the feel and energy towards the end and I decided to give a chance to younger Yorkshire players.”

The show can be used in whole or part by radio stations that want cricket content, while the public can also download it straight from the ICC website at:


This week’s show also includes a special segment with former Australian fast bowler Jason Gillespie who speaks about his cricketing heroes.

Gillespie admits that his hero was big Victorian bowler Merv Hughes: “The current Australian selector, Merv Hughes, seeing him steaming and bowl and bowling long spells and never giving up, made me want to emulate him and he is my hero.”

Apart from these interviews, this week’s ICC Cricket World also includes the latest news from around the world as well as updates on the Reliance Mobile ICC Player Rankings.

The weekly ICC Cricket World audio show runs for 15 minutes and has been put together by the ICC’s global broadcast partner ESPN STAR Sports.
