Cricket has delivered many joys in my life but none more so than the friendships I have made and I am proud to say one of my great friends from the game is this week's guest, an absolute legend of the game, Mitchell Johnson. Mitch and I have known each other since we were teenagers and have enjoyed the highs and dealt with the lows together on and off the field. Mitch is one of Australia's most successful bowlers, one of the fastest to play the game and one of the mentally toughest. His insights on mental toughness, fast bowling and getting his body fit to bowl should not be missed.
