Tymal Mills

Episode 7,  Mar 25, 11:00 AM

At the age of 22 Tymal Mills was told he had a congenital back condition and had the option of retiring from professional cricket. 2 years later he had secured a £1.4 million deal to play in the Indian Premier League for Royal Challengers Bangalore. In early 2020 Mills was in a back brace for 3 months having picked up a stress fracture, 8 months later he was bowling for England in the T20 World Cup. The man is seriously determined. Not only that but he's also easy going and totally honest, which made our chat a very enjoyable one. As he gets set for his 2nd IPL season in Mumbai, he opens up about how he didn't live up to the price tag in his first season, what it was like to play with cricket icons like Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers, and how he kept going through the dark days of injury. He's also got a very interesting take on racism in English cricket and the aftermath of the Azim Rafiq case. I hope you enjoy it and please do subscribe if you haven't already!
