Talking Sport: Johann Myburgh, ex- Professional Cricketer

25 February 2021


Over the past few weeks the Sports department has been working tirelessly to provide the Caldicott community with interviews from various figures in the sporting world. So far, we've been fortunate enough to hear from James Gaunt (DoS at Radley), Greg Hobson (youth cricket coach in SA), David Seymour (ex-professional Rugby player) and Emily Blagden (world record holder in rowing). These impressive people from the sporting world have provided us a unique insight across the board; this week we have another figure providing a different perspective.

Ma'am Macleod has interviewed Johann Myburgh, an ex-cricketer with an illustrious career in the sport. Born in South Africa, he started his first class career here where he broke the national record for the youngest ever player to reach a first class double hundred at the age of 17. After a few years in New Zealand, Johann moved to England where he represented Hampshire, Durham and Somerset (while representing Somerset he scored a 42-ball hundred in the T20 blast against Essex). Currently he is Head Coach of the Surrey Stars in the new professional women's domestic league.

With such an esteemed background, he provides a brilliant insight in his talk with Ma'am Macleod.
