Today is a very, very special episode of Lessons Learnt with the Greats. I would not be the cricketer or person I am today without the guidance and tutelage from my Cricket Academy coach when I was just a teenager, Rod Marsh. Rod is a legend as a player, forming one half of the famous Caught Marsh Bowled Lillee combination before perhaps making a larger impact as a coach and mentor once his playing days were done. Rod's insights into wicketkeeping, coaching and the mantras he lives by should not be missed.
