S2:E2: Present-Her ft. Frances Mackay: The juggler (Full Episode)
In a free-wheeling chat with Prakash Wakankar, New Zealand allrounder Frances Mackay talks about how she fell in love with cricket, making the jump from domestic to international cricket, learning from those around her and winding down her playing career. She goes on to discuss her transition into the commentary box – having the “best job in the world” – the opportunities to travel around the world, juggling playing and commentating, finding a work-life balance, and her ambitions moving forward.
Mackay, who made a comeback into the New Zealand squad after an absence of five years, mentions the importance of having a good support system, learning to enjoy the game for what it is, and dealing with issues of mental health. She is currently serving as captain of the Canterbury Magicians across format and hopes to lead them to a title or two before hanging up her boots
