The Final Word with Mark Butcher

Season 9, Ep 24: At least one England cricketer came back from India with reputation enhanced: Mark Butcher, who was noticed for an excellent couple of Tests behind the microphone. His life before commentary included 71 Test matches, with a series of dramatic highs and drastic falls. Beyond cricket, he's a musician, a considered thinker, and someone who believes in the moral obligation to speak up for others. On The Final Word this week, a long conversation with Mark about life, family, and the wider world. Before that, our usual round-up of the cricket week.
