Today's guest on Lessons Learnt with the Greats is one of Australia's finest glovemen, hardest workers and best cricket pundits, Ian Healy. As a youngster I loved watching a fellow Queenslander dominate in the Test team and he's been a huge inspiration for not only me but thousands of aspiring cricketers all over the country. Heals speaks so well about the art of wicketkeeping, how he stayed mentally and physically fit and learnt to trust his gut when it came time to make decisions. He also tells a couple of great yarns about Warnie as well!
