This week I have the pleasure of speaking to one of Australia's, Queensland's and Ipswich's finest fast bowlers, Craig McDermott. Craig debuted for Australia at just 19, earning the nickname 'Billy the Kid' and quickly discovered what worked for him at the highest level. Billy goes into how he honed his bowling skills, how he became one of the fittest players in world cricket and how he has thrived in the business world once his playing days finished. This is an awesome episode with one of the true greats of the game.
